Martial Arts/Tae Kwon Do
is one of the things we are best at
Classes at K2 Martial Arts consist of the following:
- Physical conditioning
- Basics & martial arts games
Students participate in a traditional class where courtesy, integrity, self control, perseverance, indomitable spirit are taught through both class structure and engagement with their peers. All children desire structure, consistency, and ritual even when they give us a hard time about it. Through training they will learn how to manage their emotions by controlling on what it is they focus attention on, and how their focus their attention. Martial arts embraces stability and consistency, with lessons of mental focus and social intelligence. This is what makes martial arts an effective activity for children facing challenges in their educational and social lives during their developmental years.Â

For the Kids
In Tae Kwon Do, we train hard everyday to make our bodies strong. Because we are strong, we can choose between fighting and not fighting. In the animal world, a tiger protecting her cubs will fight ferociously because she is scared. People are similar. When we are scared, we will fight. But we must avoid fighting. Because we have become strong enough through our Tae Kwon Do training. We have confidence in ourselves and know that we can walk away from a fight. This is the most important lesson in Tae Kwon Do. We must always do our best to walk away from a fight.
It is good to practice Tae Kwon Do and train hard. At the same time though, you must also study hard at school and listen to your teachers. We feel itâ€™s important to know how they are doing in school so we send their teacher a student assessment form when they are eligible in testing for their next belt, as this is 50% of their testing grade. At home, we encourage your kids to do their best to help parents with chores, be respectful and to be independent. We are happy to help with pep talks. Being strong only in your sport is not good enough. You must make your mind strong as well as your body.
