Adult Classes
Our program focuses on training you to the best of your abilities. Some students come to us in good physical condition, while others may be overweight or have limited flexibility. Adults start at any age, as we have had some adults who have started as late as age 55, and still have earned their black belts. As a student, you are looked upon as an individual, never compared to anyone else. Our instructors are with you every step of they way. All that we expect is your willingness to try.

Benefits of training include:

Fitness - The principles of Taekwondo techniques are based on the design of your body. For power, you will develop the larger, powerful muscles of your torso. The speed of your techniques comes from the fast, agile muscles of your arms and legs. As you progress in Taekwondo, you will learn to coordinate this speed and power, and develop a concentration to focus all of your body’s strength into a small, hard striking surface - like the edge of your hand, or the heel of your foot.

Self-Defense - When the speed and power you have developed through Taekwondo is used in a self-defense situation against the vulnerable parts of an attacker’s body, the results can be incredible. Taekwondo allows a woman to emphasize much of her natural strength, such as power in the legs, while learning a method of self-defense efficient against a much larger opponent. Knowing you can defend yourself, your confidence will grow. And confidence alone can sometimes be enough to deter an attacker.

Self-Confidence - This does not come naturally for many people, but self-confidence can be developed over a period of time. Through Taekwondo, as you accomplish new goals, your confidence level increases. Taekwondo instills a sense of discipline and self-confidence that can carry over to all aspects of your life.
