This class is an introduction to tae kwon do for beginner children ages 5-12. Students will learn practical self defense while acquiring discipline, conditioning the body, gaining self-confidence and reducing stress.
Every class begins with stretching and basic form, preparing the body and the mind for workout. The focus then turns to the unique style of kicking for which tae kwon do is known. Throughout the practice, students investigate the philosophical and creative applications of the physical techniques and movements. Every class emphasizes the artistic connection between the body and the mind.
This class is taught by Tom Shaheen, an instructor from New Jersey Tae Kwon Do Chung Do Kwan in South Orange. He has experience assisting and/or leading classes at the studio as well as the department of recreation in South Orange and Livingston.
Students will be expected to wear a proper traditional uniform. Guidelines will be provided by the teacher at the start of the session. For additional information please contact instructor Tom Shaheen by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
