Tae Kwon Do improves listening skills, concentration, and grades!
Teaching kids to stay focused is one of our specialties.
From the very first class, your child will learn the importance of eye contact, posture, and active listening skills that will benefit them not only in Tae Kwon Do but at home, on the playing field, and of course at school.
Both teachers and parents often notice the dramatic difference in children who study the martial arts.
Tae Kwon Do students have an easier time staying on task, are more disciplined when it comes to homework and able to control the fidgeting and distracting habits that often take other children off track.
The results are incredible.
Your child will listen better at home, handle homework and chores more efficiently, and put more focus and effort into their schoolwork.
Many children also enjoy begin receiving better grades.
Tae Kwon Do will boost your child’s self-esteem and self-confidence to new heights!
Tae Kwon Do will provide your child with plenty of challenges and the tools to overcome them.
You’ll be amazed at the difference just a few months of lessons will make in the way your child will feel about themselves and their abilities.
The secret is our use of positive recognition.
Our staff consistently use praise and positive feedback in every class to encourage students and motivate effort.
Our belt system gives students mini-goals to strive for and teaches kids the power of goal setting. Special events such as belt testing and tournaments give students an opportunity to perform in front of others, further enhancing their self confidence and self-esteem.
Tae Kwon Do is Great for Physical Fitness
If you are concerned that your child could use more physical activity, then you’re not alone.
Many of today’s kids spend hours in front of TV’s, video games, and computer screens. As a result, few children get the level of activity they need to get and stay healthy.
Tae Kwon Do can provide a much-needed physical boost.
Kids of all ages improve their balance, coordination and motor skills.
They also improve flexibility, strength and endurance, skills that will help them in other sports and make them more confident in their abilities.
Best of all, Tae Kwon Do is a fun way to get in shape.
Our enthusiastic instructors and high-energy classroom make learning enjoyable as well as rewarding. Your child will look forward to their classes and be eager to attend their classes!

Question #1: What is Tae Kwon Do? How is it different from other martial arts?
The different martial arts all originated in different countries thousands of years ago as forms of self-defense. Karate comes from Japan and Kung Fu from China. Tae Kwon Do is native to Korea. In terms of techniques, Tae Kwon Do emphasizes kicks more than other martial arts, making it ideal for improving balance, flexibility, and endurance.
Question #2: At what age can children start?
Our experience has shown that children ages 4 and up will be able to take the greatest advantage from Tae Kwon Do classes. Starting at age 4, your child is eligible to participate in trial lessons, which allow our instructors to work with them one on one and evaluate their readiness for group classes. Our staff will then use their experience to recommend the best course of action for you to take with your child.
Question #3: Does it increase aggressiveness?
Absolutely not! Your child will be taught from the first lesson that a true "Tae Kwon Do kid" never misuses their martial arts skills. Throughout their training, they will be reminded that being physically and mentally tough doesn't allow one to be tough with others. Instead, Tae Kwon Do students are expected to be humble, courteous, respectful and careful about when and where they practice their skills. The instructors at Master Chong's will continually educate your child that Tae Kwon Do is a form of exercise and self improvement, not a tool for bullying.
