Junior (Starts 6th Feb 2019)
Suitable for ages 3 to 6 years.
This syllabus works on a balance between games promoting spatial awareness, speed, balance, flexibility & core strength exercise to learning all the Taekwon-Do Syllabus up to Green Tag including traditional patterns, kicks, punches and blocks incorporating various drills throughout the journey.
This type of learning is inline with the UK's school curriculum for EYFS (Statutory framework for the early years foundation stage). The first 3 prime areas are particularly crucial for igniting children’s curiosity and enthusiasm for learning, and for building their capacity to learn, form relationships and thrive:
Communication and Language (Giving children opportunities to experience a rich language environment; to develop their confidence and skills in expressing themselves; and to speak and listen in a range of situations)
Physical Development (To be active and interactive; and to develop their co-ordination, control, and movement. Also to understand the importance of physical activity, and to make healthy choices in relation to food)
Personal, Social and Emotional Development (To develop a positive sense of themselves, and others; to form positive relationships and develop respect for others; to develop social skills and learn how to manage their feelings; to understand appropriate behaviour in groups; and to have confidence in their own abilities)
Every child will be allowed to develop in their own time whilst having support to ensure progression through the syllabus.
Suitable for ages 6 years and above.
Our Taekwon-Do classes are run twice a week ensuring the student gets all the benefits of regular training, enhancing their learning, developing skills and ensuring steady progression in their own Taekwon-Do journey. We are proud in offering longer classes than most schools which enhances the experience by the student.
The classes are generally in 3 parts:
Warm up / fitness
Taekwon-Do training which may be traditional kicking, punching and blocking techniques or pad work and patterns. We also focus on sparring to develop speed, accuracy and power.
Stretching and cool down. Stretching is important as it helps prevent injury and improves flexibility which will assist the student to become more proficient in Taekwon-Do.
The classes follow a structured syllabus to ensure that the student is ready for their grading's. Classes will be fun, friendly and challenging at the same time.
We are very much a family orientated club and It is quite common to have children training with their parents in the same class. This is certainly the case with myself as both my children who have been training with me for some years.
Taekwondo quickly becomes more than just a hobby, it becomes a way of life where you will make new friends from this and other clubs within the Heart of England Group. Taekwondo is a very healthy way of life promoting an ethical platform to improve the students overall mental and physical well-being.
You are most welcome to come and try for yourself, our door is always open!
