Our program is a all year program. We have summer camps and regular classes at night during the summer. Summer is a time to relax a little and have fun. So try our Tae Kwon Do classes. They are a blast! Who wouldn't want to learn how to do this?
Balance is something we practice in our training all the time. Keeping your eyes focused on your target will help you keep your balance. You have to find the right balance between speed and power otherwise you will.... well.... lose your balance haha. Keeping your back up straight while executing your techniques is important. I know that sounds easy but you would be surprised.
Now we get to talk about the mental side of balance. I have been encouraging the students to balance what they watch on tv. Cartoons and stuff like that is fine. But it is good to balance that out with some educational programs. That is just a great habbit to develop at a young age. Balancing the soda and juice with water or other healthy drinks. Eating candy is fine, but not all the time. We need to eat healthy snacks as well.
This is a important distinction to make. The belts we wear represent our character and how we act. Therefore a person should become a black belt in stead of earning one. Think about it like this. When someone starts their training they are given a white belt. You do not need any prior experience to get this. So everything we teach you at white belt is the " material for the next belt". Once you can show you instructor the you are proficient with that material then you are awarded with that belt. So when it comes to black belt you must show your instructor that you can block, punch, and kick like a black belt. Also at this level you conduct yourself with maturity, respect, and honor like a black belt. You should be kind and caring like a black belt. Your attitude should be one of strength and determination. Once you have achieved this then you are awarded the belt which reflects that. In this case you have "earned" or "become" a BLACK BELT.
