The Kids Program
Bully-proof your child with our comprehensive program for 3-7 year old's. Our program teaches everything a child needs to know to becoming an independent person, including fire safety, stranger danger, bullying awareness, household hazards, and much more. Along with that we teach all basic techniques in Taekwon-Do to help protect themselves against bullies and attackers.
During a typical Kids Lesson, we play various games to warm up, cover basic Taekwon-Do techniques, and do role play to practice danger awareness and moral teaching. After the lesson, the children will be awarded 'ticks' for every challenge they achieved in the lesson, which after collecting a certain amount may do their grading for the next belt. Every term we also cover a topic of danger, such as fire safety, bullying awareness, and stranger danger. After completing the course the children receive a badge for their uniform as a sign of achievement!
