Taekwondo at Harlem Tae Kwon Do Harlem Tae Kwon Do 1 Photo

Programs:

  • TKD PeeWee 4-5 years old — Each session of the program consists of 30-40 minutes in combination with the children's class. The children will learn some of the basic blocks, kicks and punches of TKD. There will be no physical contact between students and many practice drills will be conducted on kicking pads and shields. A belt promotion system whereby the students will earn stripes upon successful completion of promotion tests will reinforce positive behavior and serve as incentives for improvement. It should be noted at this point that the belt rank system will be different from the regular children's program belt ranking system. However, as students gain command of their skills and become closer to the age of six, they will have the opportunity to join the regular children's program;
  • TKD Children 6-14 years old — We teach children all levels of Taekwondo techniques, from traditional basics and forms to Olympic-style sparring and self-defense. Promotion tests are offered approximately every three months. Prior to testing, students are required to show that they are in good academic standing by presenting their report card, have attended an appropriate number of Taekwondo classes, and must receive Master Fall's permission to test;
  • TKD Adults 15 years old & up — All levels of techniques are taught, from traditional basics and forms, to Olympic-style sparring and modern self-defense. Promotion tests are offered approximately every three months. Although Master Fall's permission is still needed to test, part of the adult student's responsibility is to decide whether or not they believe they are ready. Emphasis is placed on the training and personal advancement rather than on attaining the next belt level.
