Participants in the Taekwondo and Fencing programs can improve concentration, coordination, flexibility and strength. Classes are available for a range of skill levels and include:
TaeKwonDo, one of the newest Olympic sports, is a 2,000-year-old martial art, offering a variety of benefits for people of all ages and physical abilities. Students have the opportunity to improve concentration, self-esteem, achieve lifelong physical fitness, and learn self-defense skills. Classes are taught under the direction of G. Master Hong Kim (9th Dan Kukkiwon World TaeKwonDo Headquarters). Belt testing is offered through KH Kim TaeKwonDo, twice a year at an additional fee. All colored belt students are required to have complete sparring gears.
Fencing is an elegant and life-long sport. It is great exercise for the mind and body, plus it is challenging and fun. In this program, you improve your coordination, cardiovascular fitness, reflexes, muscle tone, poise and confidence. The class is led by Maitre d’Armes Marek P. Stepien, a competitor in the Barcelona Olympics and three world championships and an NCAA coach.
