Martial Arts

MARTIAL ARTS

The art of Tae Kwon Do, “The Kicking and Punching Way”, is the core of the YMCA Martial Arts curriculum. This traditional kicking system is combined with training derived from Judo, Jujitsu, Grappling, and American-Style kickboxing for a well-rounded system. Children, teens and adults develop healthy lifestyle habits such as weight loss, self discipline, self-control and self-confidence through martial arts training. The instructors focus on students developing self-confidence by learning practical self-defense, a system that focuses on practical application of danger awareness and skills to redirect violence before a physical confrontation is necessary. Students also train in sport Tae Kwon Do and Karate for those interested in local competitions and tournaments. All Classes Held At The Niebur (Esic) Center.

TIGER MITES (AGES 4-6) 
The only necessary requirements are the knowledge of major body parts, left & right, and the ability to play “Simon Says.” Students will learn skills such as adult victim prevention, “stranger danger”, and motor skill development. Respect and discipline are greatly emphasized.

Members $30 | Non-Members $40

WHITE, YELLOW & GREEN BELTS (AGES 7+) 
Beginner/intermediate Tae Kwon Do classes are for students who have limited or no experience in martial arts.

This class will not meet the last Saturday of the session due to a conflict with the Belt Test.
