We start new students quarterly in our Trial Session. The Trial Session is two weeks in length with 5 classes total.
What age can children begin classes?
The general answer is 5 years old, but some kids are ready later and some a little earlier. This is why we schedule a one on one meeting with the future student and Mrs. Yoo. We can generally gauge the readiness of our younger students by having conversations with the children. We are looking for conversational ability, eye contact, listening skills, etc. If they are ok with most of these things then they are ready to listen and we can teach them. It is also nice to have an opportunity to talk with the future students, explain class structure and expectations; this is also an opportunity for them to ask questions about Taekwondo classes. Starting something new like Taekwondo can sometimes be a bit intimidating and usually this meeting can help put the future student at ease. We are all individuals and ready at our own time.
Trial Classes: The first class is held on a Saturday morning at the beginning of the quarter and is only for students whose first day it is with us. This gives us an opportunity to go over new techniques slowly in a comfortable environment. For the next two weeks after the initial class new students attend two curriculum classes, their choice of time either Monday/Wednesday at 4:55 or Tuesday/Thursday @ 6:35. During those two weeks, they are taught several stances, kicks, begin to understand the format of class and the expectations of Master Yoo.
At the completion of the Trial Session students can earn their White Belt by demonstrating respect and courtesy during class as well as learning the first 3 Home Rules and trying their best! From there they can continue on with their training ready to work towards their Black Belt goal!!
We limit the number of new students each quarter ensuring that our classes do not become over crowded. So if the current quarter is full, we do begin registering students for the next quarter. So if you are interested it is best to get yourself registered as soon as possible.
Please fill in the information below to get into our next available session, and we will contact you soon after receiving the information to let you know when your future student can begin training with us. This is the only way to get into our class sessions.
