Frequently Asked Questions
What is Taekwondo and how is it different from other martial arts?
The martial arts were developed thousands of years ago as forms of self-defense. While Karate originated in Japan and Kung Fu came from China, Taekwondo (which means "kick, punch, art") is native to Korea. In terms of techniques, Taekwondo emphasizes kicks more than other martial arts, making it ideal for improving your child's balance, flexibility, and endurance.
At what age can children start?
Our experience has shown that children ages three-and-a-half and up will be able to take the greatest advantage from Taekwondo classes. Starting at age three-and-a-half, your child can participate in our Tiny Tigers Program. Our instructors will work with them one-on-one and evaluate their readiness for junior classes.
Do martial arts increase aggressiveness?
Absolutely not. Your child will be taught from the first lesson that true "Taekwondo kids" never misuse their martial arts skills. Throughout their training, they will be reminded that being physically and mentally tough does not allow one to be tough with others. Instead, Taekwondo students are expected to be humble, courteous, respectful and careful about when and where they practice their skills. The instructors at World Class Martial Arts will continually educate your child that martial arts are a form of exercise and self improvement, not a tool for bullying.
Can I take classes with my child?
Yes. In fact, many families are finding Taekwondo to be the perfect family activity, combining an exciting workout with a new learning experience. You have your choice of attending children's and adults' classes individually or coming together to our family classes. Either way you'll have a great time and create a special family bond.
How safe is it to learn martial arts?
Taekwondo is safe and fun for students of all ages and physical abilities. Classes are taught by expert instructors as students are shown techniques in a step-by-step manner at their own pace. A thorough stretching routine, matted flooring, and protective safety equipment are all part of our commitment to ensuring student safety.
What if I never did martial arts before or if I'm out of shape?
At World Class Martial Arts we have ongoing enrollment, so beginners are always welcome. Our Trial Program makes it easy for new students of all fitness levels to get started. New students receive one-on-one instruction designed to answer common questions and provide an introduction to the basics of Taekwondo. In addition, the belt system used in Taekwondo allows all students to train at their own pace and improve their physical condition gradually.
