Cubs (ages 4 - 6)
At Rodgers’ TaeKwonDo, teaching children is a specialty. Cubs (ages four to six) are in their own classes, designed especially for this age group as an introductory and preparatory for regular TaeKwonDo classes. Cubs will focus on balance and coordination skills as well as listening skills and must be able to follow directions and pay attention for the thirty minute lesson.
The Cubs curriculum will provide instruction and activities to enhance the child’s physical maturation and coordination, mental readiness, attention span, social skills, safety awareness, self-discipline, and more. The Cubs program is an excellent resource for parents who want to socialize their child for pre-K and Kindergarten class and to get used to other adults besides "Mom or Dad".
The Cubs curriculum will help develop self-confidence through achieving set goals specific to the testing cycle, self-control to walk away from a conflict when appropriate, and at the same time develop the right mental and physical skills to prevail when the situation demands it.
I would like to personally invite your child to try our program. An introductory complimentary class will allow your child to experience our program first hand. Children at this age enjoy the benefits of TaeKwonDo.
The two students pictured above started training with me eight years ago and are now 3rd degree black belts.
Juniors (ages 6 - 13)
At Rodgers’ TaeKwonDo, teaching children (Juniors) is a specialty. Juniors (ages six to thirteen) are in their own classes, with no adults mixed in, and are divided into beginner, intermediate, and advanced classes. These class formats provide every child the proper attention and curriculum needed to allow them to develop their physical and mental skills properly at their own pace.
Our program involves challenging physical activity with a great return -- self-control, self-confidence and self-defense skills while learning in a fun and exciting atmosphere. Students will develop self-confidence through achieving goals each testing cycle, self-control to walk away from a conflict when appropriate, and at the same time develop the right mental and physical skills to prevail when the situation demands it.
At Rodgers’ TaeKwonDo Academy we also promote the importance of learning. Our Partners in Learning Program ® allows our instructional staff to receive information from your child’s academic teacher regarding grades and in-school behavior. We will partner with you and your child’s teacher to hold your child accountable for grades and actions while attending school. Strong grades and outstanding behavior is rewardedeach testing cycle by awarding stars to students who exemplify these traits. The stars are worn on the rank belt, signifying individual achievement and as a reminder of the importance of education. Students must receive a recommendation from their academic teacher each testing cycle in order to continue wearing stars on the rank belt.
