Classes for All Ages
At Than Phong Tae Kwon Do, we teach both kids and adults. Our children's program focuses on teaching respect, encouraging a positive attitude, and increasing self-confidence. Lessons are conducted in a fun environment, while providing excellent exercise and training in self-defence and conflict resolution. Our adult program provides an excellent stress relieving workout while learning tae kwon do. Adult classes include self-defence and pressure point training. Whether young or older, Than Phong Tae Kwon Do is sure to have a class for you! Both of our classes meet twice a week.
TENETS OF TAE KWON DO
Treat other people exactly as you would like them to treat you.
How we view ourselves and how we carry ourselves is very important in determining how others view us.
Set a goal for yourself and go for it, no matter what the odds or obstacles.
You know the difference between right and wrong. No matter how attractive "wrong" looks, remember the other tenets, and how you want to live your life every minute of every day.
Have courage to do what is right.
In addition to the five tenets, there are also five principals of Than Phong Tae Kwon Do; in which, we encourage the students to fully understand and follow both inside and outside of class.
1. I shall observe the Tenets of Tae Kwon Do.
2. I shall respect my parents, masters, and seniors.
3. I shall uphold the Martial Arts spirit and sportsmanship.
4. I shall be a champion of freedom and justice.
5. I shall build a more peaceful world.
