● More confident kids (teens and adults, too)
Kids, teens and even adults deal with being bullied whether at school, at home or on the job.
Our high expectations and positive, motivating teaching style helps students learn to step up
to challenges. Lowering goals and stepping in to fix everything for someone tells them we
don't believe they can do it and decreases confidence. Failure is never fatal unless a student
gives up. Experiencing disappointment and learning to stick with it until they succeed is what
develops confidence. They CAN do it and all the amazing role models on our instructor team
will help them develop the skills to succeed!
Plus, learning how to stand up to bullies and bullying, developing stranger danger skills and our
Women's Self-Defense Basics classes can help your family feel safer and more confident.
● Develops focus, respect & self-discipline
Yelling at, and berating students is NOT our style. We use positive, motivating language and
immediate age and rank appropriate consequences to reinforce expected behavior while
modeling appropriate behavior to help students become more courteous, focused and respectful.
We believe kids WANT to do the right thing; they just need to know where the boundaries are,
to have consistent and immediate consequences, and to be recognized when they are giving
their best effort.
● Improves health and fitness
Adults, did you know that just 2-3 taekwondo classes a week can dramatically reduce the odds
of a heart attack?!? Plus it's a great way to make new friends and reduce stress. We can adapt
drills to meet different skill levels, from the "couch to tkd" student up to the more experienced
martial arts athlete. Our teen and adult students make every new student feel welcomed.
Hilliard Taekwondo Academy can also help kids (and teens and adults) increase muscle tone,
develop core strength, improve cardio function. No one "sits on the bench" here. All students
participate fully in every class.
● The positives of an individual sport AND a team sport
Students are not compared to each other, no one "sits on the bench" and we reward effort
way more than natural ability. Our students learn to be positive, motivating and courteous
to one another. Our goal is to help every student challenge themselves and improve a little
every single time they come to class.
● A "WOW workout in a bright, clean, spacious martial arts school
Adults often comment that our workouts are more challenging, and yet more fun, than many
bootcamp-type programs they've tried. From foam rollers and stretch bands to help you increase
flexibility to battle ropes and windsprints (sometimes with medicine balls) to improve your cardio
function to target and sparring drills to improve your martial arts skills, you'll get a full workout
every time you come to class. Plus you'll develop new friendships ... and all in space that is
roomy and bright and doesn't smell like a typical gym.
● We don't give some students better training if they pay more
(Although we do charge considerably LESS for our once-a-week age 4 & 5 Dragons program)
Every single student receives the same high quality training. Yes, we could create "elite"
programs and charge a whole lot more money for you to be in those programs ... but to us that
would imply we are teaching with less than our highest quality in our "regular" programs and that
does not fit with our view of the taekwondo tenet of INTEGRITY.
