He says Tae Kwon Do has many benefits - from physical to support self-esteem and discipline for people of all ages. "The physical workout includes strength, kicking, rolling, balance, running, and cardio," he says. For kids, Tae Kwon Do helps to develop confidence, goal setting, courtesy, and ability to practice self-defense.

While classes are offered every day, the studio usually recommends three times a week. Students sign up monthly and may come as many times a week as they prefer. At the studio, classes range from beginner and intermediate to advanced, which encompasses three degree of black belt, which train together.
