Family Beginners Class
(Older Children – Teens & Adults)(White, Gold, & Orange Belts)
Class Times are from 6:00pm – 7:00pm on Tuesdays & Thursdays
Our Family Beginners Class is an awesome class consisting of older children, eight years old and up, teens, and adults. This has been a very successful program. We have kept it on the agenda. After numerous requests from members and potential members, if we offered a class where parents and/or siblings could train together, we added this. This is a 50 minute work out in a fun, safe, and family-based supervised environment, where the safety of all members is of the utmost concern. In a nutshell, this has been a hugely successful class for TBTSDC. As the old saying goes, “A family that kicks together stays together.”
Why do most people sign up for a Martial Arts? There are numerous reasons. Most People associate Martial Arts training with getting stronger, staying fit, and improving self-defense skills. These are all valid reasons. However, does Martial Arts Training help you cope with everyday life challenges? Regular training in a well-rounded martial Arts program does so in many ways. Here are just a few.
Boost Confidence – It this a known fact that members who train in martial arts classes typically exude a boost in self–esteem and confidence. This most definitely transfers to their everyday activities and relationships.
Improve Overall Health – This is a no-brainer. Regular Martial Arts training helps improve both strength and cardio endurance and improves muscle tone and weight control. This means you are less likely to experience aches and pains, become out from everyday activities, or suffer from obesity-related illnesses and conditions.
Improve Flexibility – Another known fact! As we get older, we lose that range of movement. Sad but true. At TBTSDC, we strive every class to improve with flexibility-based exercises. Regular stretching is so important.
Improving Cognitive Skills – Is this important? Have you ever had trouble remembering things? Sometimes, even remembering what you did the day before? Our systematic approach addresses this ten-fold through a multitude of activity based exercises ( forms or hyungs, as we call them) and terminology practice. I have never told a student this will get easier. It will indeed challenge you, but in a fun and meaningful way.
Even a new member, starting off slowly and methodically learning the basic forms, which consist of 21 or so movements will reap so many benefits. You are memorizing the movements and learning to breathe properly. These patterns alone, help one to develop strength, stability, power, focus, balance, coordination!
Make New Friends – When enrolling in our program you will have the opportunity to meet a whole new group of people, who share your interests in the Martial Arts. These relationships and friendships can certainly have a lifelong impact. Is this important? For me it has been. TBTSDC members are well known and respected for helping each other in the programs.
