Families

 

If you live in Glendowie, and you seek an activity for families, International Taekwon-Do Glendowie is ideal for you.

We are a strongly family oriented school – most of our members are families. And as Master Rocky Rounthwaite says, “Families that kick together, stick together.” The Styles family include a father and daughter team who started training in 2004, and now (as second degree black belts) teach our children’s classes.

The instructor and classes

Our family classes are taught by Mark Banicevich, VI degree black belt with over 20 years experience – and father of two. We run classes for families on Tuesday evenings (9 years and over) and Thursday evenings (13 years and over). We have specialised classes for younger children of 6-8 years and 9-12 years.

International Taekwon-Do is more than just kicking and punching. We encourage our students to live by the Tenets of Taekwon-Do:

  • Courtesy
  • Integrity
  • Perseverance
  • Self control
  • Indomitable spirit

These tenets provide strong benefits of training for kids and families. The culture of International Taekwon-Do reinforces universal family values, such as respect, trust and honesty. It is important to us that children respect their parents; usually parents find new reasons to respect their children, too.

Families training together

It is common for families to start as kids – a parent brings their six or seven year old along to International Taekwon-Do, and sits down the back while their child trains. After a while, they decide to give it a go, and a few years later, the whole family is involved.

It is great to find a physical activity that the family can do together. Each can progress at his or her own pace, or sometimes parents decide to progress a the rate of the children so the family remains together on the same grade. One of the great things about International Taekwon-Do is the ability to make these decisions – so long as you achieve your goals in Taekwon-Do and enjoy your training, we are happy.
