KNEEHIGH NINJA PROGRAM
Beginning at Age 4
Our KneeHigh Ninja students enjoy classes that provide a supportive environment where they develop good habits such as following directions, improving their listening skills and attention, as well as respect for self and others.
While children will of course be learning solid Tae Kwon Do basics, they will also be enhancing their motor skills and coordination—plus, more importantly, they will be learning essential “life skills” like respect, discipline and confidence.
Our system was developed to help make sure your child succeeds not just in Tae Kwon Do. The goal is to help develop positive life skills that are “transferable” from the Tae Kwon Do class to home and school. Achievement stripes are a great way to build your child’s self-esteem and a positive attitude. These include a “Red Stripe” for good effort in Tae Kwon Do class as well as a “Blue Stripe” for doing their best at home (I.e., being respectful, helping around the house, etc.) They are awarded at the end of class in front of their peers. This is one-way Jhoon Rhee Tae Kwon Do uses positive reinforcement in your child’s development.
After a student has earned all the appropriate achievement stripes and completed the minimum number of classes, they are ready to test for the next belt.
