TEEN PROGRAM

The Everest Taekwondo Beginner’s Program provides an introduction to the basic techniques of modern Taekwondo, while increasing strength, flexibility, coordination and cardiovascular fitness.

CLASS STRUCTURE

Students are introduced to basic techniques in a more structured environment. “Belt” tests at the end of the term allow students to work toward tangible goals, and showcase their new found skills! Each session of the program consists of a 60 minute class. Students will learn a more formal curriculum of basic blocks, kicks and punches of Taekwondo, but there is no physical contact between students. Many practice drills are conducted on kicking pads and shields. Students are taught lessons in the proper time and situations for use of their new-found skills. A belt promotion system whereby the students will earn different color belts upon successful completion of certain of skill sets, and quarterly belt promotion tests in which students earn striped belts will reinforce positive behavior and serve as incentives for improvement. We continue development of our students’ behavior, character and gross motor skills through a more focused and disciplined curriculum. You can expect to your child to learn the following:

At Everest Taekwondo, our young students are taught that through dedicated, intense work, any goal in life is achievable.

BENEFITS OF TAEKWONDO

Here are some of the benefits you can expect from training in Taekwondo:

 

  • Fitness and Weight Loss: Taekwondo training incorporates extensive stretching and constant aerobic exertion. The results are increased aerobic capacity, strength and awareness of one’s body.You will burn tons of calories, build muscle, and in general, get your metabolism kicked into high gear. Our workouts are a great way to help you shed those unwanted pounds.

 

  • Self Defense: 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.

 

  • Self-Confidence and Positive Outlook: Taekwondo training instills a sense of discipline, control over one’s mind and body and ultimately, self-confidence. You’ll be encouraged to take on challenges and to push yourself past your own pre-conceived limits and reach new heights of self-confidence that will carry over to all aspects of your life . You can expect to go home from each class with a renewed vigor and love of life.
