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.

The Positive Effects of Martial Arts for a Child in School

Grade school can be quite the experience for any child. It is a place where a child not
only learns academically but one where a child must learn to socialize and function in
the world. Unfortunately, there are a lot of negative experiences that a child may
have when going through school. Whatever those experiences may be, it would be a
good idea to have a child participate in martial arts classes. Doing so will give them
the tools they need to survive the school experience. The benefits associated with
taking martial arts classes are essential for them to be able to have a positive
experience in school.

Helps them earn better grades in school
Getting good grades is reflective of a child’s comprehension of the material. But, it is
also indicative of their discipline and responsibility traits. Through martial arts,
students are to learn the fundamentals of stretch and physical routines. They also
learn to become disciplined with practice and keeping up with their cleanliness of
uniforms. Children learn how to be punctual and can focus their daily thoughts on the
tasks at hand. Thus, being able to exhibit these positive traits will translate to better
grades as schooling requires the proficiency of these characteristics.

Gives them the confidence to stand up to bullies
Bullying is a very prominent and unfortunate experience that many children will
either witness or become victims of in their lifetimes. Being a part of martial arts can
give children the strength and confidence that they need to stand up to these
negative individuals. Not only will they learn about self-defense strategies, they will
be able to feel assertive and courageous. Possessing self-confidence is the number
one way for a child to be able to stand up for him/herself in any threatening
situation. Through martial arts, they will learn that not all conflicts have to be
physical. They will possess the mature mindset to tackle any conflict with assurance
and pride.

Gives them the ability to make friends
Having friends and keeping them can be the big difference between a positive and
negative school experience for children. They will latch onto people who share
common interests with them and feel devastated when those relationships disappear.
However, for children who regularly practice martial arts, they have a different
capacity to make and keep friends in their circle. Besides making friends in the
martial arts classes themselves, children are able to easily socialize and collaborate
with other students at school. They instill a lot of the same discipline and traits they
learn from martial arts in their everyday lives. For instance, they may be first to
initiate a conversation with quiet students because they feel confident in themselves
to do so.

Being a part of something special such as martial arts can be greatly impactful for
children. Especially when it comes to school, children can gain invaluable skills and
behaviors that will allow them to have more successful experiences in social settings.
Although school is meant to teach them about a variety of things, having martial arts
as a supplement can significantly affect the way they approach schooling and their
overall experiences.
