TAEKWONDO FOR KIDS
Youth Tae Kwon Do - Ages 5, 6 or 7 to Teens
All our youth programs fill up fast so scheduling ahead is highly recommended. Getting started is easy. Your child's trial class is always free. Contact us for details and scheduling.
Our youth programs are all age-specific and built upon decades of collective family experience; Jacob Cho, co-founder and owner of Cho’s Academy, and his father, Grandmaster Hee Il Cho. Both are lifetime martial artists.
We’re committed to providing our youth students with the tools and abilities to defend themselves, thrive and succeed through childhood development, and to grow into strong, happy and conscientious young men and women.
Youth TAE KWON DO
Our Youth Tae Kwon Do Program offers a healthy balance of character development, physical education and skills training. The bar is set high as we believe in cultivating confidence and maximizing individual potential. Self-defense is a core component but we believe in and always encourage a non-violent resolution to conflict when possible.
Classes are conducted in a traditional setting where discipline, respect, integrity, responsibility and self-control are all nurtured. Children have fun, but at the same time are challenged to work hard, persevere and ultimately achieve goals. Self-respect and self-confidence come from the truth of consistent earnest efforts, and the skills that are acquired as a result of those efforts.
Our classes offer a structured, positive and healthy environment that help kids get a strong start on life. Children begin to develop habits everyday. Let us help yours to develop the right ones.
what is TAE KWON DO
Tae Kwon Do is a traditional and practical martial art that originated in Korea and translates literally as, way of the foot and fist. Put simply it is a system of kicks and punches, but Tae Kwon Do also holds a much deeper meaning beyond that of its literal translation; it implies discipline, control and connection (or harmony) of the body, mind and spirit. Tae Kwon Do is a traditional martial art, a practical method of self defense and an Olympic sport.
Our Youth Tae Kwon Do curriculum also includes Bully Defense, Boxing, Kickboxing and Jiu Jitsu. Character development is a core component of our system. Contact us to learn more.
