Ages 13-15

Wether you are a white belt coming into our school with no martial arts experience or you have trained in other disciplines, we have a wonderful community of teenagers at our dojang.  They are open, accepting, and encouraging and they are happy to see a new face at the school.  

The five tenets of Taekwon-Do are Courtesy, Integrity, Perseverance, Self-Control, and Indomitable Spirit.  Training to have a solid sense of self-control is a focus in working with teens.  As they go about their daily lives, Taekwon-Do can help to improve their sense of confidence and enhance their ability to work through difficult situations.

White, Yellow, and Green Belts will receive specific training in agility, punching, kicking, striking, blocking, stances, flexibility, and balance.  They will learn the basics of sparring and will have the opportunity to experience light contact fighting.  Students will learn the TKD forms that accompany their belt rank.

Blue, Red, Pre-Black, and Black Belts are challenged with classes dedicated to pushing the student at their current skill level.  They will work to improve upon basic skills taught as lower belts and will deepen their understanding of forms.  

The teen classes will help your child to improve their cardiovascular fitness as well as sharpen their mental focus.  Meditation at the beginning of each class will help to encourage inner stillness and self-control.
