Our Family classes are fantastic for those people that want other options for class times, and also for those friends and family members who want to attend the same class, but their ages put them into separate classes. As with all classes, all Students are instructed at the Troy Martial Arts dojang by certified instructors, who's goal is to help students develop Martial Arts skills, resulting in:
Respect for Self and Others
Strong Leadership Skills
Strong Bully Defense Skills
Strong Self-Defense Skills
New Positive Friendships
Young students will be motivated to achieve their goals in Tae Kwon Do through a combination of courtesy, patience, repitition, and positive reinforcement. Each student is viewed as an individual. Some students have natural physical talent while others will struggle daily. We work with each student to help them to be the best they can be. No student will ever be compared to another. We do, however, ask each student to always give us their personal best.
The Advanced Class moves a little faster, and the students begin to develop the ability to train without hand-holding. For example, the instruction will cover the students curriculum a few times each day, then ask them to continue to practice on their own (or with a group of similar belted students), while the instructor travels the floor and observes and coaches. This teaches the student the responsibility of practicing their taekwondo and to understand they have the ability to train independently. This builds self-confidence and self-esteem for the student. Students will assist fellow students through the curriculum, building amazing leadeship skills, trust, and friendship between the students. We strongly encourage the students to compete at this level.
We offer classes all week long, as seen in the schedule above. And kickboxing is also available FREE to all students 16 and older.
We teach the RAD Program (Recognize danger, Avoid danger, and Defend against danger). The students are taught to understand that the goal is to recognize and avoid so they never find themselves in a position to defend.
