We have had two children successfully earn their black belts here, and now our third child is old enough to take Taekwondo from Grandmaster Park. His school is the real deal. Our child is learning with traditional methods -- including discipline, respect, and self-control. These attributes have come in handy, not only in Taekwondo class, but also in school and at home. In addition to getting great exercise, he is improving his coordination and focus through these classes. Not to mention self-defense. Master Park has always been very respectful towards us parents as well. He runs his school and his classes very conscientiously in the traditional Taekwondo format in order to deliver top-notch instruction to each student. Just one of the many reasons why our family highly recommends Grandmaster Park's school!

My son has attended Grandmaster Park's school for over a year and he loves it. He advanced quickly, improved his coordination, and increased his confidence. Grandmaster and all the staff are welcoming, friendly, and caring. They encourage my son so much and he loves going to class!

Noah has been with Grandmaster Park for 5 years and in that time both his self-confidence and focus have improved greatly! He's calmer at school and more able to accept daily changes and challenges without getting angry or upset. He also made a life long friend at the school; the boy now lives in Australia but the two text & Facetime regularly. With out TKD, they would never have met! I definitely give Grandmaster Park and all the excellent instructors an big thumbs up!

We have had Grand Master Park as an instructor for over 2 years for my now 10 year old. Grand Master Park is an incredible teacher who focuses on fundamentals and learning TKD the right way. He is firm but loving with all of the students and we have been very happy at my son’s progress and development.

Martial Arts: The Effective After School Program

A parent’s work schedule never really syncs up perfectly with his/her child’s school
schedule. As school lets out for the day, parents are usually wondering what options
are in place for them to put their children in until they are out of work. Plus, they
want to be able to put their children in programs that are going to benefit the child
versus sending them to a relative to watch television all afternoon. They might go to
tutoring, but that activity can only benefit them on an academic level. If parents are
looking for an effective, all-around activity, then they should consider placing their
children in a martial arts after school program. In doing so, parents will begin to see
great growth and benefits in their children.

Provides Great Education – Discipline and Responsibility
Just because the school bell rang, it does not mean that a child has to stop receiving
educational content in an after school program. Martial arts teaches kids how to be
disciplined and responsible. The routines associated with martial arts require
precision and practice in order to perfect the stances and activities. Students are also
required to upkeep their uniforms and belts. They are taught to respect the instructor
as well as one another. This type of conditioning in the class allows students to
become more mature and responsible. Building this foundation at a young age will
produce healthy habits as they grow into teenagers and soon after, adults.

Can be a Place to Make Friends
Children can find it very difficult to make new friends. They may feel uncomfortable
in the process and sometimes feel rejected for being what is considered to be
“normal” in the school social worlds. Kids can be harsh and when a child is exposed to
negative social settings, it can be traumatizing for the rest of their lives. The good
thing about putting a child in martial arts is that he/she will get the chance to easily
make friends in the program. The other children in the class already share a common
interest with one another: martial arts. They all understand the routines and the
disciplines behind the activity. Sharing the same mindset allows children within the
class to become friends easier and support one another. There are also routines that
involve students working with a partner which is a great way to foster teamwork and
accountability.

Encourages and Provides Physical Strength and Fitness
Especially in America, more and more children are becoming obese because of the
lack of exercise and poor nutrition. Martial arts after school programs offer a great
way for children to practice physical fitness every single day. There are warm-up
routines that help students center their thoughts and stretches to prevent injuries.
Then, the remaining routines build their muscle and promote great posture. The
students are able to become physically strong which is not only good for their bodies
but their minds as well. This is because they build a sense of self-confidence as they
see their strength grow. They also learn great methods of self-defense, which is ideal
for any person of any age.

Finding an after school program such as taekwondo that provides a multitude of benefits for a child can
be difficult. Martial arts classes are a great option as they can give a child an
education that no other activity ever could. It gives a child benefits that affect their
minds and bodies, all at the same time. It teaches children to become responsible and
mature, traits that cannot be matched by any other program.
