In most martial arts beginners are taught basic techniques and stances and are told to practice those moves over and over again—only striking the air and targets such as heavy bags and kicking paddles.
Learning to defend yourself effectively by training like this can take months, even years because you’re not learning to fight a REAL person!
A major difference in taekwondo training is that we introduce free sparring to beginners early in their training.
Of course we make sure SAFETY is first for the beginners–they learn to spar without actually contacting each other first. This allows your child to get comfortable using the techniques first without fear of getting hit.
Then, when they are ready, and have protective sparring gear–they’re allowed light contact sparring.
This allows your child to get more comfortable with dealing with a real, live human who is constantly reacting to their techniques.
Training like this quickly teaches your child what it feels like to hit a real human (not just striking targets)… to evade and block real attacks (not just imagining an opponent)… and learn to quickly deal with the psychological and emotional effects of fighting a real person.
Additionally, we’ll teach your child effective self-defense techniques and strategies for dealing with bullies. More importantly we’ll teach them that “prevention is better than cure” and avoiding fights and confrontations is always better than having to use their skills.
That being said, your Child will learn to defend themselves fast with taekwondo.
Your Child Will Get Into The Best Shape of Their Life… And STAY That Way Without Ever Getting Bored!
Most children have short attention spans!
And that’s why taekwondo is such an effective option for your child to get in great shape and stay that way.
For example, most adults have no problems starting an exercise program or trying to get in shape.
Come January 1st, almost everyone decides they want to lose a little weight and tone up… but those resolutions rarely last.
It’s simply a matter of using an effective system and sticking to it… and traditional exercises like running and going to the gym can quickly become repetitive and boring—so most people just give up.
That’s what makes martial arts training so effective!
In each class your childs’ current physical and mental abilities are tested and stretched… and they leave each class sweaty, happy and with a feeling of accomplishment.
Because they’re constantly learning new things, either about themselves, or the martial arts you’re NEVER bored.
Plus, because they’re working out with a class full of other motivated students—and they have a dedicated instructor there to push them—your child can’t help but maximize each and every workout.
Which means they’ll look forward to going to each class… increasing their abilities… pushing their limits… and before you know it your child will be in great shape and have healthy exercise habits for life!
