Taekwondo for All Ages
Taekwondo is a Korean Martial Art that was developed in the 1950’s and introduced into this country in the 1960’s. It is a modern and effective martial art that can be practised by people of all ages. The training will cover all aspects of Taekwondo and is carried out in a structured way to allow the students to fully enjoy all parts of the training. It is perfect for core strength.
Adult, Child and Family Classes
The classes are structured into child and adult classes. The children’s classes are for 5 - 11 year-olds. The children will learn all aspects of Taekwondo. Various activities are also done to help children improve fitness, flexibility, hand-eye coordination, balance, memory, and reflexes – all in a fun and interactive way in order for the children to both enjoy the lessons and to get the most out of it. Family groups are also welcome in the children classes if parents wish to train with their children.
Adult classes are similar to the children’s classes in that all aspects of Taekwondo are taught. Activities are also done to improve things like fitness, hand-eye coordination, balance, memory, and reflexes, but are done at a more appropriate level for adults.
