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 working on our Verbal Taekwondo 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.  (​We will review mental requirements on belt test weeks instead of our life skills concept.​)
