This programs is designed for children ages 5 to 8 years old. A special class where we teach our students Life Skills, Mind Skills, Coordination Skills, Fitness and more. In this program we are using TaeKwon-Do to teach them something more than punch and kicks, we help them developed:
- Being Organized
- Learn Teamwork
- Following Instructions
The program introduce certain games and tools that makes it easy for the children to learn while having fun.
The rank and testing system used in this program is different than the normal TaeKwon-Do curriculum. This is because we want to make sure that the child gets motivated to continue studying and learning the skills assigned on their rank, we want to make sure they build confidence and feel a bit independent. While the belt evaluation will also includes physical actions like kicks, punch, movements and other exercises; their evaluation is also based on some assignment that are part of their Workbook. This workbook is the key for the Life Skills the child will be learning during this program.
The color belts are all white which signifies innocence:
- White – Life Skills
- Orange Stripe – Mind Skills
- Green Stripe – TKD Attitude
- Blue Stripe – Fitness and Health
- Purple Stripe – Coordination Skills
- Brown Stripe – TKD Skills
- Red Stripe – Danger Awareness
When the child reach the Red Stripe he/she will graduate from the TKD Kids Program and move to the TaeKwon-Do Junior Program.
As the kid gets older they will be doing more things like grown-ups do, like being independent, organizing things, working with others, following instructions and become a good leader.
They will learn to remember things, concentrating and getting more knowledge.
This will show them what is TaeKwon-Do, how they should behave to become a more helpful and caring person to others.
FITNESS AND HEALTH
Between exercises, drills and fun games we help the children to get stronger, stretchy and being able to gain release a lot of energy. Children that are fit and happy are usually more happy.
Coordination is about being able to control their movements and position of the body to perform more difficult skills like TaeKwon-Do Techniques.
This is about the TaeKwon-Do program, movements, positions and learn how to perform Stances, Blocks, Punches and Kicking which is a lot of fun and kids Love It!
We teach the students to be aware of potential dangers and how to respond to dangers like: Fire, Electricity, Medicines and Poisons, Danger of Heights, Sharp Things, Hot Things, etc.
