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.
Open Classes allow students of various ages and rank to practice together with a flexible class schedule. Lower ranking students learn from the example set by higher ranking students. Higher ranking students also learn to assist in teaching classes. Students can select from four open classes each week to combine with their assigned Belt Level Class
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.
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.
