What is Tae Kwon Do and how is it different from other martial arts?
Martial arts were developed thousands of years ago as forms of self-defense. Karate originated in Japan, Kung Fu came from China, and Tae Kwon Do is native to Korea. In terms of techniques, Tae Kwon Do emphasizes kicks more than other martial arts, making it ideal for improving your child's balance, flexibility, and endurance.
At what age can children start?
Our experience has shown that children ages four and up will be able to take the greatest advantage from Tae Kwon Do classes. Starting at age four your child can participate in our trial lesson program, which allows our instructors to work with them one-on-one and evaluate their readiness for group classes. Our staff will then use their experience to recommend the best course of action for you and your child.
Does it increase aggressiveness?
Absolutely not! Your child will be taught from the first lesson that a true "Tae Kwon Do kid" never misuses their martial art skills. Throughout their training, they will be reminded that being physically and mentally tough does not allow one to be tough to others. Instead, Tae kwon Do students are expected to be humble, courteous, respectful, and careful about when and where they practice their skills. The instructors at Kwon's Tae Kwon Do will continually educate your child that Tae Kwon Do is a form of exercise and self improvement, not a tool for bullying.
Can I take classes with my child?
Yes. In fact many families are finding Tae Kwon Do to be the perfect family activity, combining an exciting workout with a new learning experience. You have your choice of attending Kids and Adults classes individually or coming together to our Family class. Either way you'll have a great time and create a special family bond!
How safe is it to learn?
Tae Kwon Do is safe and fun for students of all ages and physical abilities. Classes are taught by expert instructors as students are shown techniques in a step-by-step manner at their own pace. A thorough stretching routine, matted flooring, and protective safety equipment are all a part of our commitment to ensuring student safety.
What if I'm currently out of shape?
At Kwon's Tae Kwon Do, we have ongoing enrollment so beginners are always welcome. First time students receive specialized instruction designed to answer common questions and provide an introduction to the basics of Tae Kwon Do. In addition, the belt system used in Tae Kwon Do allows all students to train at their own pace and improve their physical condition gradually.
If you have any other questions or concerns, please call us. Master Kwon will answer your questions personally. We want you to be informed, be safe, and have fun!
