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.

Your New Family Activity: Martial Arts

If you have kids of different ages, then you know how challenging it can be to find things to do
as a group. What excites your 10-year-old daughter is likely to bore your 7-year-old son – and
vice versa.

There’s one exception that we know of – and that’s taking martial arts classes! Studying the
martial arts is fun for people of all ages. It’s a great way to learn something new, get in
shape, and discover common ground with the people who matter most to you. Here are some
of the best reasons to study martial arts as a family.

#1: Making Exercise a Priority is Good for Everyone
People with kids sometimes struggle to make time in their busy schedules for exercise. And, a
lot of kids would be content to spend their days sitting in front of a video game or television.
The solution? Signing the whole family up to study martial arts! As parents, you’ll be setting a
good example by practicing what you preach about exercise. Kids will have a chance to burn
off some of the excess energy they have, and the whole family can improve their health by
getting regular workouts.

#2: Finding Common Ground Will Bring You Closer
When you do things together as a family, you build strong bonds that bring you closer.
In your free time, you’ll be able to talk about what you’ve learned. You may decide to
practice together as a family – and you can attend competitions or go see the latest martial
arts movie together. These things can all help you find common ground with one another.

#3: Learning the Five Tenets Improves Interpersonal Relationships
The five tenets of martial arts are the core of what you’ll learn in class – and they go far
beyond the physical movements you’ll be working to master. In fact, practicing self-control,
courtesy, and persistence will help you in every area of your life.
Families who study martial arts together find that their ability to focus on what’s important
improves as a result. You’ll all learn to be aware of each other’s needs and to respect one
another. Those are important lessons for kids, siblings, and parents.

#4: Studying Martial Arts is Fun
Anything you’re going to do as a family should be fun – and martial arts classes are! A good
martial arts class is a social event combined with a great workout. You’ll get a boost of feel-good
hormones after class and the whole family will be smiling.  Kids who might balk at doing a “boring” family activity will look forward to learning how to execute perfects kicks and punches or break a board with their feet. You won’t have to worry about whether the whole family will enjoy studying martial arts – they will!

Conclusion
Studying martial arts as a family can help you come together across the generations – and it’s
a great way to carve some family time out of your busy lives.
