Traditional Martial Arts classes

Ongoing classes for boys, teens and men

Scheduled classes for boys starting at age 7 years.
Separate youth and adult/teen classes.
Special bachrim class: erev/motzei Shabbos.

Class size is limited.
All ongoing classes are held in our private studio in Ramat Beit Shemesh A.

Classes are based on the traditional Korean martial art of Tae Kwon Do,
plus techniques and topics appropriate for each group.  For example, kids classes emphasize discipline, self-confidence, situational awareness, bullying, body language, and inappropriate physical contact.

Focus is on mastery of techniques via multi-modal training: Verbal, visual,and kinaesthetic (tactile). Classes include formal repetitions plus fun and exciting drills to reinforce learning. Mastery of basic stances, blocks, strikes, and kicking leads to movement, combination drills, partner work, forms (hyungs, katas), and sport sparring and self defense (age appropriate).

Training in traditional martial arts is a proven way to learn discipline, practice respect, improve concentration (which helps with school work and/or job success), become more self-confident, gain self-control, and grow emotionally while improve one’s physical fitness.

Training in traditional martial arts is well-known to provide a wide-range of benefits for students of all ages. Traditional martial arts programs focus on the whole person, developing a person mentally, physically, socially, and emotionally.

Tae Kwon Do is a system of self-defense based on ancient Korean martial arts. Long ago in Korea, these martial arts were developed to mold young people into the leaders of the generation. Today, Tae Kwon Do is practiced world-wide for exercise, self- defense, and self-improvement.
