We train our students to the best of their ability. Some students come to us in shape, while other have come to us overweight and many come to us with limited flexibility. Adults can start at any age, as we have had some adults who started as late as their late 50’s, and have still earned their black belts. As a student, you are looked upon as an individual, never compared to anyone else. Our instructors will be there every step of the way. All that is expected of you is a willingness to try.
Benefits you can expect from training in Taekwondo, and Personal Safety:
The principals of Taekwondo and Personal Safety techniques are based on the design of your body. For power you develop the larger, powerful muscles of the torso. The speed of the techniques comes from the fast, agile muscles of the arms and legs. As you progress in Taekwondo and Karate you will learn to coordinate this speed and power, and develop a concentration to focus all of your body’s strength into a small, hard striking surface like the edge of the hand or the heel of the foot.
When the speed and power developed through Taekwondo is used in a self-defense situation against the soft vulnerable parts of an emphasize many of her natural physical efficient against a much larger opponent. Knowing you can defend yourself, your confidence will grow. And confidence alone is usually enough to deter potential attackers.

Through your training you will develop the awareness to assess possible threatening situations and learn to act appropriately to resolve them. Taekwondo instill a sense of discipline and self-confidence that can carry over to all aspects of your life.
“Hannah began taking Taekwondo in June 2010. We have noticed improvements in her confidence and initiative. This year she began grade 5 and we have rarely needed to remind her to do her homework. We have appreciated Mr. Davidson’s extra effort in encouraging Hannah in her journey as she becomes more comfortable and familiar with Taekwondo.”
