We offer an adults only class. The class is open to men and women age 18 and up. Students work to improve their physical fitness while learning the martial art of tae kwon do. Everyone is encouraged to go at their own pace in a comfortable class setting.
Rank level classes are set up to allow students to practice particular techniques geared towards their rank level. Students that are of a similar knowledge level practice and improve together. Each student has one assigned rank level class, and should attened this class every week. For particular rank level class times, please see the class calendar.
Different times of the year, this class will tailor its topics to things students would like to work on, more so than they usually do in regular classes. Other special classes include a Board Breaking Class, Sparring Class, Self Defense Class, Advanced Kicking Class, Tournament Preparation, Testing Preparation and more!
Private lessons give students the opportunity to work with the instructor on a one-on-one basis. Students can choose to work on techniques that they enjoy. Private lessons also give students the opportunity to review and have extra practice before a rank advancement or a tournament.
Children learn basic techniques of tae kwon do while learning discipline and preparing to move into our regular classes. This class is taught by both Master Ross and Master Aimee, as well as some of our higher ranking students assisting. For half of the class, students will learn blocks, strikes, and kicks. For the second half of the class, they will do a fun activity, such as breaking a rebreakable board or running and jumping, while learning how to stay in line and take turns.
Anyone who is interested can bring their child in to try the class for free. Children as young as the age of three are welcome as long as they are potty trained!
Women's Self Defense Classes are available at our school. Upon request, we will conduct special Women's Self Defense seminars. If you run a local group, are members of a club, or are just a group of friends who would like to learn self defense, call or email us for more information.
Women's Self Defense is an issue that is of great importance to all women living in today's modern world. By making the decision to learn self defense, a woman is taking a step in the right direction in being in control of her own life and safety. Learning self defense also improves confidence, awareness, self assurance, physical fitness, and many more aspects of one's life.
Master Aimee Racine is the primary instructor of the Women's Self Defense program. She has experience running self defense seminars, teaching weekly tae kwon do classes for women, and speaking about the importance of women's self defense in today's society.
Open classes consist of students age seven and up. Beginners and advanced students take classes together, including students from the rank of white belt through red belt. This set-up of classes has many benefits. Beginners learn by the positive example set by higher ranking students. More advanced students in the class help out lower ranking students by assisting in teaching and serving as role models.
All open classes are one hour long. Classes generally begin with stretching and warm up. Students then practice blocking, striking, and kicking techniques, with the level of difficulty of technique geared toward each student's ability. Students will then practice traditional Taegeuk forms. During the middle section of the class, topics covered include self-defense techniques, one-step punching techniques, kicking techniques on targets or a heavy bag, and various other techniques. Every class ends with sparring.
