TAEKWONDO Classes at Focus
The classes cover all aspects of the martial art and the modern sport, the emphasis is on self development and self achievement. We cover most components of fitness, flexibility, strength work, speed work, cardiovascular work, endurance and ensure our athletes understand the benefits of rest/sleep and great nutrition.
Our main focus is not competition, it is learning the art of Taekwondo along side the skill of mastering the art mentally and physically – with no values there is no value.
Children as young as five will learn basic movement skills, coordination, discipline and respect for themselves their uniform and their fellow class mates.
Gaining the coveted Black Belt
Taekwondo has a clear pathway to reaching Black Belt and beyond with everyone beginning as white belt and progressing through the grades of yellow, green, blue and red belts.
There is no hard and fast rule as to how long it will take an individual to reach each belt, each participant is an individual and it is in their own respected time and effort that decides when they have achieved the required standard to progress onto the next stage of their training.
The Kukkiwon organisation, also in Seoul, Korea is responsible for Black Belt Certification and International Instructor courses.
