Junior Program (ages 7 – 12).

Combining physical exercise, motor skill development, Tae Kwon Do curriculum, and life skills training, the emphasis of our Junior Program is to establish discipline through the two fundamental Martial Arts training principles of attention and respect. Both attention (standing perfectly upright and still while listening to the instructor) and respect (bowing to one another and the instructors) are developed in a child through mental focus and physiology.

Our Junior Program can also make Tae Kwon Do a family activity, since our Junior/Family sessions are designed to allow children and parents to take classes together.

For the Junior student, our goal is to help build confidence and character by providing the child with control over his or her body and an ability to stand up to negative peer pressure and other intimidating situations.

The movements involved in the Jhoon Rhee System develop coordination and increase strength and flexibility, which is very important during the growth years. Our Martial Arts Ballet training, the display of Martial Arts moves to music, also develops concentration and timing.

The awarding of the higher levels of Tae Kwon Do belts gives your child a sense of achievement and accomplishment. The importance of this is that it develops the principle of goal setting. We work on your child’s immediate, short term, and long term goals, which your child will be able to apply to other areas in life and carry with him or her into the future.

Jhoon Rhee Tae Kwon Do also involves free-style competition (Sport Tae Kwon Do). This helps develop a sense of sportsmanship in a controlled and competitive environment.

The foundation of Jhoon Rhee Tae Kwon Do is its self-defense value. We are very careful to teach children that Tae Kwon Do is not to be used outside the Tae Kwon Do school in any manner other than in true self-defense. The result is a self-confident child, who does not need to bully or show-off to other children.
