Welcome to National TaeKwon-Do

At National TaeKwon-Do we believe in every student. We acknowledge differences in age and ability levels and set our expectations accordingly. We offer 3 separate programs.


Our SuperKids program is designed to teach 4, 5, and 6 year old students basic skills in a fun environment. The program emphasizes development in basic techniques, gross motor skills, turn taking, courtesy, proper etiquette and the understanding that each one of us makes a difference in the world. There are no testings or promotions in this class.

All SuperKids are encouraged to obtain a TaeKwon-Do uniform that meets National TaeKwon-Do specifications. This helps students to make the transition from playing to entering a class structure. It also helps them differentiate between when it is acceptable to kick and punch and when it is not. It is expected that the student’s uniform is clean when they come to class.

Jr. TaeKwon-Do

Our Jr. TaeKwon-Do program is designed to teach 6-10 year old students. It is a more structured traditional style class with a modified TaeKwon-Do curriculum suited to this age group. The curriculum is different from the Adult TaeKwon-Do program but the students do have the opportunity to promote and make advancements all the way to the rank of Jr. Black Belt. All Jr. TaeKwon-Do students are required to obtain a TaeKwon-Do uniform that meets National TaeKwon-Do specifications. This program provides an excellent foundation for the Adult TaeKwon-Do program.

An important note is that students that make the transition from this program to the Adult Taekwon-Do program will begin the Adult TaeKwon-Do program at the rank of white belt. Much as a student that graduates from high school as a senior will enter college as a freshman. Students that achieve the rank of Jr. Black Belt will wear a different belt indicating they have achieved a Jr. Black Belt rank. Any student that starts the Jr. TaeKwon-Do program and desires to obtain the rank of Jr. Black Belt will be allowed to continue in the Jr. program until the desired rank is achieved regardless of age.

The Jr. TaeKwon-Do program emphasizes the tenets and the oath as well as encourages students to recognize the difference they make in the world each and every day. This program will help students learn the basics of TaeKwon-Do and how to show respect. They also improve strength, fitness, agility, flexibility, leadership, and confidence.

Adult TaeKwon-Do

Our Adult TaeKwon-Do program is a traditional program that teaches the Chan Hung patterns which are Chon-Ji through Tong-Il. It is structured to allow for individualized strengths and weaknesses. In this program you will learn TaeKwon-Do as well as improve your fitness, flexibility, agility, and confidence. There are also plenty of opportunities to improve leadership skills for those students who are interested. It is a great place to have fun and train with new and old friends. Families with older children find it fun to train together. The Adult TaeKwon-Do program emphasizes the tenets and the oath and encourages students to recognize the impact they have on our world.
