Junior Ninja Class: Ages 6 and under: 5:30 and/or 6:00 pm – 6:30 pm
(You have the option of bringing your child for the full hour or half an hour)
Come join us for fun, exercise and the beginning stages of learning and discipline for the martial art of Taekwondo. In this class we focus on teaching children about structure, while working on strengthening attention spans. We teach the basic foundation of Taekwondo in a family friendly environment where children are encouraged to participate and work together as a group. We want every child in this program to feel like part of something special and to recognize that they are valued and important to the class. We have created a FUN, high energy program that involves lots of running, jumping, and kicking. We balance the fun with the basics of Taekwondo which include teaching your child all about our blocks, punches, kicks, the Korean language and stances. This class has a high instructor to student ratio so that every student has the right amount of attention to succeed and do well in the class.
Intermediate Colour Belt Class: Ages 7 – 12 years: 6:30-7:30 pm
Kids who come out to these classes can expect an exciting, high energy class with lots of kicking, running, floor exercises and practice sparring alongside the fundamentals of Taekwondo including blocks, punches, stances, patterns and self-defense. We put a high focus on commitment. By regularly attending class, students become more confident inside and outside of class. With confidence comes the opportunity to be great examples for students who are younger and have lower belts. We expect our higher belts to set a great example for all lower belts by showing great respect to everyone in the class and the instructors. We encourage higher belts to work with lower belts and younger students and to always show a positive attitude and energy. This type of behaviour helps to improve life inside and outside of class. In all of our classes we offer a SAFE AND ZERO TOLERANCE FOR BULLYING atmosphere. This expectation extends to outside of the class as well. If you misbehave or are caught bullying you will be asked to leave the class and your return will be determined by the school.
We come to class to learn and have fun all while feeling safe doing so. We want all students to feel as though they belong despite any insecurities or self-doubt outside of the Taekwondo School. In class we train as a group and learn as a group. We encourage one another and strive to be our very best. This is our standard and guarantee to all of our students.
Adult Colour Belt Class: Age 13 years and up: 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm
Come out and try this high energy class where everyone is welcome and treated equally. We put a high focus on a positive team environment where no one is left out or left to feel as though they cannot keep up. Regardless of belt or experience, we strive to help one another while also improving ourselves. For some students it’s competitive, for some it’s recreational and for others it is to come and get a good sweat session in! Whatever your reason for coming, we ensure you’re supported in the journey and having fun doing so!
** The age cut off for the adult class is strictly enforced **
All ages FIGHT class from 10:00-12:00
** Full sparring gear is required for attendance in this class. Saturdays are aimed towards tournament fighters and those who wish to learn how to spar**
TCC (Taekwondo Conditioning Class)
This outdoor class was designed to strengthen and condition taekwondo players, complimenting all material that is practiced in class. To win tournaments you need to be physically strong as well as have a strong cardiovascular system. This class puts a high focus on our cardiovascular system and works to improve endurance by practicing running drills, plyometrics as well as exercises that work on fast twitch muscles (the muscles that make us kick fast) and stabilizing muscles (like those used for balance).
This high intensity class is for those who want to improve and know that it will take hard work to do that. We encourage those who have never been out and have been wanting to make a change to COME out and give this class a try. This class is open to all registered students. This class is informally scheduled once a week and usually runs on a Friday or Sunday. Each month the dates will be announced on our Facebook page: Shelburne BW Taekwondo.
In all of our classes we offer traditional Taekwondo training from instructors with experience in both recreational and competitive Taekwondo training. We learn Taekwondo in an effort to be well rounded, positive, confident, GOOD people – all while achieving belts in the colour belt system. We prepare diligently for each grading to ensure each student participating is prepared and capable of grading for their next belt. At our school we have an ongoing commitment to the art of Taekwondo. We are passionate and look forward to teaching our students all about what it takes to be a great Taekwondo student. We ask that our students are prompt for our class start times to make the most of the hour of training!
