  • What is Taekwondo?
    Taekwondo is a Korean martial art characterized by its emphasis on kicking techniques, which are often high, fast, and powerful. It incorporates elements of both self-defense and sport, with participants often engaging in sparring matches, forms, and breaking techniques. Taekwondo emphasizes mental discipline, physical fitness, and the development of character traits such as perseverance, respect, and self-control.

    Practicing Taekwondo offers a holistic approach to personal development, combining physical fitness with mental and emotional well-being. Through disciplined training, students improve their cardiovascular health, strength, and flexibility while learning effective self-defense techniques.

It provides a structured environment for goal setting and achievement, promoting social interaction and cultural appreciation. Beyond the physical benefits, Taekwondo serves as a lifelong activity, enhancing both physical abilities and overall quality of life.
  • May I come to watch a class to see what it is like?
    Absolutely!... We welcome anyone to come and visit our studio, anytime. Always happy to have you!
  • At what age should my child start?
    We offer classes for most ages! We have programs for kids starting at 4 years old all the way through adults.
  • My child is not athletic, is that OK?... How difficult will it be?
    Often times children who don't find success in team sports come to martial arts, and they love it! That's because with martial arts you go at your own pace. Everyone is greatly encouraged – regardless of his or her athletic level.
  • I'm concerned about injuries?... Will my child get injured?
    For many years, children have enrolled in our program without experiencing a single injury. In fact, this holds true for the majority of our young participants. We prioritize safety extensively, implementing padded floors, providing proper gear, and delivering meticulous step-by-step instruction to minimize any risks to your child. Have children been injured while taking martial arts classes? Yes, some have. Though children have sustained injuries in martial arts classes, the majority of these incidents have been less severe than those often encountered in activities like football, baseball and other sports. While we cannot offer an absolute guarantee that your child will remain injury-free, we can confidently state that injuries among our young participants are exceedingly rare. In essence, we are deeply committed to ensuring your child's safety above all else.
  • Will martial arts make my child violent?
    We teach kids self-defense as a tool for personal growth and development. We do not teach kids how to kick and punch so they can go down the street and beat up the neighbor's kid. We want them to learn to treat others as they want to be treated. They learn to respect everyone around them – from their parents to their peers.
  • What type of time commitment might we expect??
    Regular attendance is the best way to improve over time. Our programs are set up for students to progress with as little as two classes per week. We do also offer advanced programs and additional classes for those students who want to dedicate more time and effort to their progress
  • What should I wear to my first class?
    Wear comfortable clothes with a white t-shirt if you have one, and shoes that are easy to remove for class.
  • Why do people bow in Taekwondo?
    In Taekwondo, bowing is a sign of respect and humility. It's a traditional practice deeply ingrained in the culture of martial arts. When students bow, they demonstrate their reverence for their instructors, fellow students, the art itself, and the principles it embodies. It's a way of acknowledging the knowledge and guidance received, as well as showing commitment to the discipline and etiquette of Taekwondo. Additionally, bowing helps create a focused and respectful training environment, fostering a sense of unity and mutual respect among participants.
