Join the team of Junior achievers and understand our Taekwondo program at its best.
Our Children's program is specifically designed for kids ages 7-12. We help our students set both short term and long term goals and continually work towards achieving those goals. Our curriculum helps children develop and refine their motor skills, as well as exercising to increase speed, power and flexibility. Highkicks students push themselves to become stronger athletes.
While the physical benefits of taekwondo are very great, the mental benefits are just as rewarding. We continually motivate our students to increase their knowledge and willingness to learn. To do this we use the "Black Belt" attitude. The Black Belt attitude teaches students to understand that the path to Black Belt is not one that only happens inside the dojang; it also takes place at your home, at your school and in your community. Every aspect of your life must reflect the Black Belt attitude that the Highkicks Masters expect.
This teaches students to come to class with an open mind, practice hard and leave the dojang knowing that they tried as much as possible to better their skills. While they learn, our students are also expected to help other students in their continual progress. Our children practice 5 different aspects of taekwondo. These include kicking and punching skills, forms (patterns), one-step self-defenses, sparring and breaking.
There is not one area of taekwondo that is more important or outweighs another area; all 5 pillars are very important but all must co-exist equally.
