“My goal as a martial arts instructor is to develop strong self defense skills in our children. In each class, we focus on developing character. Many parents say bringing their children to Taekwondo makes parenting easier. We create strong discipline,good manners in a positive, social environment. Taekwondo training helps children channel aggression and energy. It provides them with praise, positive reinforcement and lays the groundwork for leadership skills.”
