TaeKwonDo For Children
Children's classes are divided by both age and skill level. All children are taught at their own pace to develop their present capabilities and bring out their hidden potential. The Masters are committed to helping each and every student improve. The goal of the Clemmons Family Martial Arts children's program is to provide benefits that extend beyond the walls of the Martial Arts school. Many parents, doctors, teachers, and psychologists find that Martial Arts improve children’s academic progress – attention span, listening skills, cooperative learning, following directions and leadership skills are all areas of training that directly carry over to the academic classroom.
TaeKwonDo For Adults
Are you considering taekwondo but embarrassed by your age? Don’t worry, as taekwondo is designed not just for kids but for adults as well. There are people who took up the martial art in their 30s, 40s, and even 50s and even became black belts. You can develop flexibility and speed even if you are at an advanced age.
There are many reasons why adults consider practicing taekwondo. One is that it can help enhance self-esteem by improving their physical and mental states. It can also build self-confidence and develop discipline. Of course, other adults are motivated to learn taekwondo so they would know how to defend themselves in situations like an attack.
Men and women often join to for the ability to take care of oneself in any potentially dangerous, or uncomfortable situation, even though most of our adults seldom, if ever, get into a fighting situation. They often find themselves, however, in an uncomfortable situation, such as walking to their car late at night, or escorting their spouse or friend in a less than secure neighborhood. It's at times like this that martial arts training greatly enhances your ability to really take care of yourself, or someone you care for when the time arises.
No Contracts Required - Classes Are On A Month To Month Basis
Will TaeKwonDo make my kid violent?
No way! In fact, TaeKwonDo makes kids calmer and more respectful than ever. Martial arts always has been about peace, and it always will be.
Do kids get injured in TaeKwonDo?
Sometimes. But the truth is, injuries are very, very rare here. We have a lot of measures in place to keep your child perfectly safe. In fact, safety is our #1 concern.
My child isn't athletic. Can he/she still participate in TaeKwonDo if he/she is not athletic?
Absolutely. TaeKwonDo teaches kids to be coordinated, flexible and strong. Kids who don't naturally have these qualities develop them. Kids who do have these qualities grow them even more.
Is TaeKwonDo fun for children?
Absolutely! In fact, kids usually have to drag their parents to TaeKwonDo class - something parents are always shocked to see. We have our serious moments here where kids work and learn... but we have just as many moments where they goof off and have a blast!
Will martial arts training take away from my child’s focus on schoolwork?
Definitely not. We like CFMA students to make a long-term commitment to martial arts, but we also teach that schoolwork and family obligations are the first priority. In fact, we see many students improve their grades after starting a martial arts program. Martial arts helps students improve their focus, motivation, sense of responsibility, and self-discipline.
Will TaeKwonDo improve my child's confidence?
Yes! TaeKwonDo is a powerful source of confidence for kids. They practice hard and learn techniques in order to advance through the ranks. And as they advance, they fill with pride. After all, they're the ones doing all the work - so they feel all of the accomplishment whenever they learn a new move... achieve a new belt... or get praise from their fellow students and instructors.
How old should my child be to start TaeKwonDo?
Usually at 6 years old. Classes are customized to suit children of different ages. A teenager receives very different treatment than a 6-year-old, for example.
Q: Is TaeKwonDo boys only? Or can girls participate as well?
Our TaeKwonDo classes have been, and always will be, for boys AND girls! Every class has a good blend of the two as well. In fact, girls often get the hang of it sooner than boys as they're naturally more flexible.
Q: What should I wear to my first class?
For your first class, you should wear comfortable clothing, such as sweat pants and a t-shirt. If you already own a uniform from another martial art, you are welcome to wear that with a white belt
Q: Should I be wary of Schools that off FREE classes + Free uniform?
Be wary of a one or two class free trials with a free uniform especially when the school won’t give you prices in advance over the phone, by email or on their website. Why? 1, 2, or even 3 FREE classes are just enough to whet a person’s appetite for more but is not long enough to see how the student will like it week in and week out. How can a person make an informed decision to sign a 1 year, 2 year or 3 year contract based on just one to three classes? These contracts cannot be canceled just because you don’t want to train any long, or the school moves to a less convenient location or the school changes instructors and you don’t like the new one. You will be stuck with that contract for the contract period whether your or your child trains or not. You end up paying for the “magic of the moment” of those free trials. Only register for classes where you pay as you go. That way you can stop training without having to pay for months you won’t use.
Don’t give your credit card information or bank information at the time of a FREE trial. If you decide to register for classes after the FREE trial then give the school the information. If you pay for a trial period then pay with cash, your credit card or check only when it’s in writing that the school will not charge your credit card or draft your bank account after the paid trial if you do not register for regular classes.
