WE BUILD CHAMPIONS OF LIFE “ONE IS ONLY A MASTER WHEN ONE MASTERS ONESELF”
The Spring Branch Taekwondo Children’s Martial Arts Beginner’s Program provides an introduction to the basic techniques of modern Taekwondo, while increasing strength, flexibility, coordination and cardiovascular fitness.
Martial arts have become an integral part of our popular culture, through video games, movies and reality shows. With all that exposure, it’s natural for our youngest ones to develop an avid interest in the martial arts. We channel that interest into positive programs that promote the ideals of discipline, respect and confidence through activities which are designed to increase aerobic capacity, sharpen motor skills and increase focus
Through the belt ranking system, our children are motivated to set short and long-term goals, from earning their color stripes between each belt test, to visioning and achieving the ultimate goal of earning a Black Belt. At Spring Branch Taekwondo, our young students are taught that through dedicated, intense work, any goal in life is achievable.
After successfully testing for a Yellow Belt, your child’s time in Taekwondo will become more intense and exciting! The Intermediate program at West Side Taekwondo offers different types of classes across 7 days of the week. In addition to three basic classes, we offer Basic and Advanced Sparring Classes and the opportunity to compete locally, regionally and nationally.
For the serious Taekwondo practitioner, we offer Special “Black Belt Only” and other advanced classes in poomsae, Olympic Style competition sparring, self-defense and board-breaking.
Here are some of the benefits you can expect your child to receive from training in Taekwondo:
Taekwondo helps create Fit and Healthy Children:
Taekwondo training incorporates extensive stretching and constant aerobic exertion. The results are increased aerobic capacity, strength and awareness of one’s body. Your child will burn tons of calories, build muscle, and in general, get your child’s metabolism kicked into high gear.
Taekwondo helps students develop important Self Defense Skills:
Taekwondo is recognized as the martial art with the most highly developed arsenal of kicking techniques. When combined with powerful strikes, blocks, throws and joint-locks, Taekwondo becomes a complete system of unarmed combat for self-defense. Through constant practice of techniques and total body conditioning, the Taekwondo practitioner becomes mentally and physically prepared to defend oneself, should the need arise. At the same time, students are always reminded that martial arts skills are never to be used in an abusive or offensive and manner. In fact, it’s part of our student creed.
Taekwondo helps students develop Self-Confidence and a Positive Outlook:
Taekwondo training instills a sense of discipline, control over one’s mind and body and ultimately, self-confidence. Our children will be encouraged to take on challenges and to push themselves past their own pre-conceived limits and reach new heights of self-confidence that will carry over to all aspects of their life.
Taekwondo emphasizes Academic Excellence:
Many parents have attributed to our program improved grades as a direct result if the increased achievement motivation, self-direction, and self-confidence provided by Taekwondo training. As part of our efforts to encourage academic excellence, we require verification from parents that our students are performing to their potential in the classroom as part of the process for being allowed to advance in rank.
Taekwondo helps students develop a Respectful Attitude and Discipline:
Children in our program learn to have a positive and respectful attitude toward their teachers, parents, peers and, ultimately, themselves. We certainly don’t require it, but we’ve have heard many stories of children even saying “Yes, Ma’am” or “Yes, Sir” – to their own parents! In fact, our students must specifically receive their parents’ / guardians’ recommendation in order to participate in the promotion test.
The importance of setting specific achievable goals and following through to achieve those goals will be reinforced through a test at the end of the semester in which students will perform in front of the Master Instructors, Instructors, parents and their peers.
Upon successful completion of each group test, students will earn belts as tangible symbols of their accomplishment.
As students gain command of their skills and reach closer to age 6, they will have the opportunity to “graduate” into the regular Kids Taekwond Program, where all of the above lessons will be reinforced at greater levels of intensity and expectation, until the ultimate goal of Black Belt (or in the case of children, the Junior Black Belt) is achieved. This is the ultimate goal of a Taekwondo practitioner, whether young or old, and symbolizes a high level of dedication and achievement in the art of Taekwondo. It is never too early to be thinking of your child as becoming a Spring Branch Taekwondo Black Belt, and many a Pee-Wee student, after years of training, has gone on to achieve this ultimate accomplishment!
