Tae Kwon Do
Benefits of Tae Kwon Do Training
Tae Kwon Do is a martial art that allows individuals to focus on physical and personal development. It instills discipline, honor, self-control, respect, courtesy and perseverance. Students of all ages can apply the lessons learned to maintaining their personal safety. Other benefits include:
Fitness: Students develop strength, flexibility, confidence and self-esteem while developing overall physical fitness. As you progress, you will learn to coordinate this speed and power, and develop the concentration to focus all of your body's strength into a small, hard striking surface like the edge of the hand or the heel of the foot.
Self-Defense: Knowing you can defend yourself, your confidence will grow.
Self-Confidence: As you accomplish new goals, your confidence level increases. It instills a sense of discipline and self-confidence that can carry over to all aspects of your life.
Programs are available for adults, teens and children (beginning at age 4), for beginners through 4th degree black belts. Beginner students are required to attend the Intro class before beginning rank-specific training (uniform is not required for the Intro class). No annual commitment or contract is required. Rank advancement ceremonies are held on-site at the Bauer Branch four times a year.
Each class is led by a team of certified ATA (American Taekwondo Association) instructors, under the leadership of 5th degree black belt Chief Instructor Pamela Gedman. Please learn about the belt ranks and "meet" our instructors using the links on the left side of this page.
