MEMBERSHIPS: We offer both monthly and annual memberships. All students should attend 2 classes per week Monday through Friday for curriculum training in preparation for quarterly testing. Once a student reaches Jr.Green belt, usually 6 months, they may also attend sparring class, there is no additional charge for this class.
CURRICULUM CLASSES: Our classes Monday through Thursday are 45 minutes in length, Friday classes are 40 minutes as they tend to be much small classes. We begin with a light warm-up and stretching. Each class we practice our forms (poomsae), kicking combinations, self-defense and breaking techniques. We usually close our classes with a high intensity aerobic workout and then finish with sit-ups and push-ups. We operate on a rotating curriculum which enables us to focus on one level of curriculum for each class (i.e. belt color level).
FAMILY TRAINING TOGETHER: We have many parents who train with their children. They find this to be a very rewarding experience. Not only learning a skill together, but helping each other as well. This opens up many opportunities for dialogue between parent and child; strengthening the bond and relationship as a family. Children also have an opportunity to help their parents which builds their confidence as well. Our motto is " The family that kicks together, sticks together!" We offer generous family discounts, for multiple children and parents joining with their children. See our testimonials to read from some parents who have trained with their children at our school.
SPARRING: There is no charge for this class although sparring gear is required. See class schedule for sparring class time. Sparring class is a high aerobic work out and building the students stamina as well as focus. Sparring class is an opportunity to practice the kicks and movements we learn and learn how to put them into practical use in a safe environment. We practice Olympic style sparring and all students are required to wear sparring gear. (See our page about Sparring for more details on this aspect of Taekwondo).
DEMO TEAM: Demonstration Team practices are closed - no observation. Our team practices every Saturday from 8:30-10:30 September through July. New members are invited by Master Yoo to tryout for the team on an annual basis.
