We offer a Family Class, which allow children 8 years old and older to participate together - great for parents who want to participate with their kids, or just a parent who would love an activity that multiple kids can be in one class at the same time! Less driving!
Advanced Class (Green Belt & Up)
Our advanced class is reserved for belts Green Stripe and higher. This allows our senior belts to learn and perfect their patterns and senior techniques.
Kodiak Cubs (Ages 4-7)
We specialize in teaching the youngest martial artists, 4-7 years old. This program was developed so young kids can also participate in the amazing action of Taekwon-Do, but with a focus on respect, discipline and confidence building. Kodiak Cubs focus on developing the motor skills needed to participate in the Family Class.
Team Wicked Awesome!
With “Team Wicked Awesome” we take the hit style work-out program, and incorporate them into Taekwon-Do training. Though Taekwon-Do greatly improves flexibility, balance and leadership skills; TWA hit classes will dramatically improve strength and core training for our competing athletes.
