It is important to us that our students strive to be well rounded and enjoy success not only in Taekwondo, but in school, work, socially, and all of their lives endeavors.  Therefore, each month we discuss a different life skill with the students in our Children's program (ages 7+).


In April and May we will be discussing Verbal Taekwondo.  This is our verbal anti-bullying program.  Below are the weekly concepts that we will be discussing.  We encourage parents to discuss these with their students to help enhance our “mat chats” that we do each day in class. Questions may also be asked about these concepts when students in the children's program belt test. 


  • APRIL 2ND – 7TH:  DEFINING BULLYING BEHAVIOR
  • APRIL 9TH – 14TH:  WHY DO YOU GET BULLIED?
  • APRIL 16TH-21ST:  “HAND SHAKE SCALE” HOW DO YOU PRESENT YOURSELF?
  • APRIL 23RD – 27TH:  5 STEP VERBAL DEFENSE: ASK
  • ​​APRIL 30TH – MAY 5TH:  5 STEP VERBAL DEFENSE: TELL THEM WHY
  • MAY 7TH – 12TH:  5 STEP VERBAL DEFENSE: OPTIONS
  • MAY 21ST – 26TH:  5 STEP VERBAL DEFENSE: CONFIRM & ACT
  • MAY 28TH – 2ND:  VERBAL 1-STEP SPARRING


We will review mental requirements on belt test weeks instead of our life skills concept.
