We at C.W. Tae Kwon Do believe in a holistic approach to child development.  While martial arts can be perceived as a fun and rewarding activity for children, it should not be overlooked as an invaluable tool to help the young discover themselves.  In learning Tae Kwon Do, the child learns not only the practical martial arts techniques, but more importantly, the philosophy that will guide the child through those important adolescent years.  Tae Kwon Do may be the best investment you will ever make for your child!

Most classes will be taught by the founder/head instructor of C.W. Tae Kwon Do, Master Han D. Cho (9th Dan).  He has been teaching children for the last 25 years of all levels and ages, and fully understands the psyche of children.  We have a very clear curriculum that allows children to take a step-by-step approach from the first stage of learning to the advanced stage.  Most importantly, our aim is to give children a fun and rewarding experience during each and every class.

C.W. Tae Kwon Do provides a motivated learning atmosphere.  Each child is taught as an individual, with positive reinforcement and encouragement.  Practicing Tae Kwon Do will help your child to concentrate on goals, and to meet life's challenges with new confidence. 

Tae Kwon Do is a complete form of physical fitness.  Stretching and kicking improve flexibility and balance while sparring and grappling improve strength and endurance.  Because the techniques are interesting, your child will be more willing to practice, and will gain a healthy attitude about exercise.

Tae Kwon Do is a highly disciplined activity.  It shows children that positive behavior is advantageous in learning, helping them to gain focus, concentration, and self-control.  Your child will develop a greater attention span and better listening skills - skills necessary in school and in life.

At C.W. Tae Kwon Do, not only are classes dynamic and exciting, but students have the opportunity to participate in special events such as tournaments and kick-a-thons.  By having fun, students maintain a positive attitude toward learning, and an eagerness to achieve new goals.
