If you live in Glendowie, and you seek an activity for your young children, International Taekwon-Do Glendowie is ideal. Most forms of physical activity produce excellent benefits for children - both physical and behavioural. International Taekwon-Do goes one step further and explicitly reinforces the positive behaviours you teach at home.
We have an excellent programme for 3-5 year olds, called Taekwon-Do Kubz. Beginners classes are Saturdays during school terms, 9:00am-10:00am.
The programme was developed by Master Mark Hutton from Scotland, and focuses on pre-schoolers.
It combines safe and exciting Taekwon-Do skills with fun drills and games that inspire great behaviour. It emphasises the benefits of great communication skills, which reduces the child’s frustration, and increases the child’s confidence and self-esteem.
This unique programme was inspired by the Founder of Taekwon-Do, General Choi Hong Hi, and the tenets and oath he developed.
Each reward is directly linked with the ideals set forth in Taekwon-Do: courtesy, integrity, perseverance, self-control and indomitable spirit are all employed to inspire our kids, just as Taekwon-Do has been inspiring people of all ages for over 50 years.
Taekwon-Do Kubz uses simple drills to teach how we “build a more peaceful world” by using “calm” voices (a dream for all parents and carers), smiling and shaking hands, as well as the essential skills of:
- Child protection against adults, known and unknown.
- Dealing with aggressive children and bullying, verbal and non-verbal.
- Health and fitness, the benefits of a healthy lifestyle.
- The benefits of working together and the fun of sharing.
We have several instructors qualified to teach the Taekwon-Do Kubz programme, including Master Banicevich, Michelle Banicevich and Duncan Styles.
Taekwon-Do Kubz classes run during the school term. During the holidays, train with a children's class for free!
