How Many Classes Per Week should I Attend?
A.Your United Tae Kwon-Do membership provides for (2) classes per week. Obvoiusly, students that make time to practice at home once or twice per week will learn at a much faster pace. This allows the student to become proficient at newly learned techniques before others are introduced.
Will There be Other Beginners in my Class?
A.At United, all students are grouped by age and by rank. In this way, you will be in a class with students at your age and skill level. We also encourage you to find a “buddy or training partner”, together you can help each other with new moves as well as encouragement and motivation .
Will the United Tae Kwon-Do Program Make my Child Overly Aggressive?
A.At United, children are taught that the martial arts are not to be used in aggression, but rather to defend oneself in problematic situations. Aggressive behavior is channeled into assertiveness to increase the child’s self-esteem, increase self-discipline and build character. Our program helps children develop the self-confidence needed to resist peer pressure when faced with life changing decisions.
Will My Classes Be Safe?
Absolutely. All classes are strictly monitored by Certified Instructors to ensure complete safety.
What About Sparring?
A.All students interested in sparing are required to wear the best protective equipment available at our center and are strictly supervised. Consequently, the chance of injury is minimal.
How Long Will it Take Me to Become Reasonably Proficient?
A.The time it takes to become proficient varies with each individual depending on the effort they put forth. At United, students are very often amazed by their own ability and accomplishment in as little as six (6) months. This training will give you the confidence of knowing that you can defend yourself in most situations. Your real goal, however, should be to attain the rank of Black Belt. This level of proficiency typically takes two to three years depending on each individual student.
