Taekwondo teaches children discipline and physical skills whether they want to compete for the gold or just want to learn.  We emphasize a cooperative environment, and learning positive social skills.  This translates to many students excelling in scholastic activities as they develop improved focus.  Returning students will continue to work towards the next belt.   Dress comfortably and have a light snack before class.
