Our Adult Taekwondo class is for ages 14 and up and is not to be confused with the SPORT of
Taekwondo. We do compete in tournaments when interest is there but we do not focus our
classes on competition Taekwondo. What we practice is an Art Form, a Form of Self-Defense
and a Way of Life. We help to build life skills and while we believe that disciplining is important
it is secondary to instilling SELF-discipline.
Taekwondo is primarily a kicking and striking art that relies on and develops good cardiovascular
training, speed and flexibility, however, our system also incorporates the strong kicks and
punches of Taekwondo and Karate with the flowing control movements and throws of Aikido,
Hapkido and Judo for a well rounded, practical martial arts system.
Our Adult Taekwondo Curriculum places a heavy emphasis on PRACTICALITY and
UNDERSTANDING. We believe that adults should be taught differently than children and our
format allows for a better understanding of techniques and their applications. Where youth
practitioners rely on their strength, energy and flexibility, our adult students rely on maximizing
these same areas while pursuing a path of excellence and precision that can only be achieved
and understood by more seasoned minds.
Class attendance of three times per week is recommended with a minimum of two classes per
