KARATE/TAE KWON DO
Karate and Tae Kwon Do are striking arts using punching, kicking, knee strikes, elbow strikes and open hand techniques such as knife-hands, spear-hands, and palm-heel strikes. Tae Kwon Do is one of the most popular martial arts due to the recognition and prestige that accompanied its acceptance as an Olympic sport.
Our style is a hybrid of Karate and Tae Kwon Do, which promotes a variety of techniques but is rooted in tradition. They both promote character building and discipline in a world searching to rebuild, instill and put strong moral value back into society.
Many parents enroll and entrust the most important thing in their lives under our long term care: their children. It can be one of the most major decisions and investment you will make for you, your child or loved one. Some of our students have trained for more than six or seven years. We are proud to remain a major influence and have profoundly impacted the way they think and act. Many of the morals, ideals and philosophies we instilled, will continue to influence and impact their lives; and they didn’t make that important decision over the phone.
One common asked question is "Can we watch a class" before we decide if we want to enroll or not"? The answer is no. Psycological studies have proven that allowing open viewing tramatizes students. Particulally newer students who are self concience to begin with and are still struggelling with the proper execution of their techniques. The last thing they want is to be put on display with strangers scrutinizing their skill. And the viewing public generally have no knowledge of what is right or wrong. Our fighters are always laughing at the 2.000 some odd spectators shouting the most ridiculas advise from the bleachers who have never even been in the ring, hand on boxing gloves or even trained before. But to hear them shout advise you would think their are 2,000 seasoned experienced fighters and trainers.
We also understand why the first thing perspective customers nearly always ask is, "How much"?. We wish it were that simple. However, there are many decisions and variables that can and will affect your price. We are limited and restricted from supplying you with essential, much needed, helpful information prior to evaluating you or your child.
We can’t blindly recommend, provide detailed information and give advice before determining levels of hand/eye coordination, flexibility, muscle reflex action, or before determining if the perspective student is timid, shy, assertive or perhaps even aggressive.
How well does the perspective student focus and concentrate? Are they lacking or weak in areas in which Martial Arts training can provide solutions and in what time frame?
Many of today’s youths are diagnosed with varies levels of autism, dyslexia, and attention deficit disorders and some parents, as well as some individuals themselves, are sometimes totally unaware of, or in denial, regarding these unique special needs.
Every perspective student is required to attend "Two (2) one-half hour Private Orientation classes" before enrolling into one of our programs. The private Orintation classes provide us with the opportunity to evaluate and diagnose problems or discover a natural athlete. They provide you with much needed, important information to help you determine if you want to entrust yourself, your child or loved one into our long term care. They break down fears and apprehensions, provide confidence and allow for the student and instructor bonding process to begin to forge.
Students with prior experience often fail to understand the problems it creates for themselves, as well as our current students, if we just allowed anyone and everyone to randomly jump into and disrupt ongoing classes. The orientation process allows the opportunity for us to technically break down and explain the moves, and bring perspective members up to speed on our rules and protocols, which helps eliminate potentially embarrassing violations. They, in return, become familiar with and learn more about our teaching style, techniques and philosophies before making the important decision to enroll with us.
Thirty ($30) dollars for two (2) Private Orientation/Evaluation Lessons is a small investment that provides the relevant facts necessary for you to make an informed decision to enroll with us. When you decide to enroll, tuition is approximately $130 per month.
