Tae Kwon Do
One of the most popular martial arts in the world available here at the YMCA! Your child will learn self-defense skills and focus on discipline, and self-control to help your child build self-confidence.
Martial arts classes at the Y consist of stretches, kicking, meditation, spatial awareness, coordination and rhythm. Martial arts students develop a greater sense of self-respect and inner harmony while learning effective self-defense techniques.
Embracing the physical, mental, and spiritual element of martial arts improves the mind’s focus for increased awareness and better performance in school, which helps establish a healthy lifestyle early in life. Martial arts develops self-control, build confidence and manages stress to build a more emotionally healthy child. We will use strength effectively to maintain cardiovascular fitness.
Your child will enjoy a combination of fitness, self-defense, sport, meditation, discipline, character development and self-confidence.
