Students are led through a class of exercises, stretches, Isshinryu Karate techniques, and practical self-defense to encourage a confident and humble demeanor. Younger students learn about self-discipline, awareness, and to always honor their parents.
Plus, our training has fun games too! Teens, adults and high ranking child students are also given the opportunity to practice forms, self-defense, controlled sparring, and grappling.
This sport is known as Korean Karate. It's the study of kicks and punches and it emphasizes the use of the feet for unarmed combat. Students learn basics, forms and three-step. Sparring is non-contact. Our Taekwondo program at the North Pinellas, Hernando and Citrus Ys emphasizes safety and self-control.
Students work with the teacher to progress at the pace that is right for them, because one of the tenets of this art form is that we learn throughout our lives, not according to fixed time periods. Students of all ages develop lasting strength and focus in a non-competitive, mutually respectful environment.
Training methods include sparring, traditional patterns, and practical self-defense techniques. New students can join any time and all ages and skill levels are welcome!
Taekwondo instills discipline, honor, self-control, respect, courtesy and perseverance. Students of all ages can apply the lessons learned to maintaining their personal safety.
