Frequently Asked Questions 

What exactly is 'Taekwondo' and how is it different from other martial arts like Karate or Kung Fu?

The different martial arts all originated in different countries thousands of years ago, as forms of self-defense. Karate comes from Japan and Kung Fu came from China. Taekwondo is native to Korea. In terms of techniques, Taekwondo emphasizes kicks more than other martial arts, making it ideal for improving balance, as an international sport and is included in the Olympic games. Currently more people study the art of Taekwondo than all other forms of martial arts combined.

At what age can children start?

Our experience has shown that children age three and up will be able to take the greatest advantage from Taekwondo classes. Starting at age three, your children are eligible to participate in our trial program, which allows our instructors to work with them one on one and evaluate their readiness for group classes. Our staff will then use their experience to recommend the best course of action for you to take with your child.

What types of classes are offered and what are the benefits?

At Olympic Taekwondo Academy we offer specialized classes for children, adults, families, and even some for those who need special accommodations. Each type of class has been designed to provide the skills that students desire most. Children’s Classes improve focus, self-confidence, and coordination. Adult classes teach self-defense, self-esteem and provide a great workout. Our unique family class offers a mix of benefits plus the opportunity for parents and children to share goals and train side by side.

So I can do it with my Family?

Definitely! In Fact, many families are finding Taekwondo to be the perfect family activity, combining an exciting workout with a new learning experience. At Olympic Taekwondo Academy you have your choice of separately attending a children’s class or adult class or coming together as a group to our family class. Either way you will have a great time and create a special family bond.

Does learning Taekwondo increase children's aggressiveness?

Absolutely not! All Children are taught from the first lesson that true “Taekwondo students” never misuse their martial art skills. Throughout their training, they will be reminded that being physically and mentally tough does not allow one to be tough with others. Instead, Taekwondo students are expected to be humble, courteous, respectful, and careful about when and where they practice their skills. The instructors at Olympic Taekwondo Academy continually remind students that Taekwondo is a form of exercise and self-improvement, not a tool for bullying.

How safe is it to learn Taekwondo?

Taekwondo is safe and fun for students of all ages and physical abilities. Classes are taught by expert instructors. All students are taught techniques in a step-by-step manner at their own pace. Separating classes by belt levels, a thorough stretching routine, matted flooring, and the use of protective safety equipment are all part of our commitment to ensuring student safety.

How long does it take to get a black belt?

In WT Taekwondo style, it takes approximately 3 years to reach a black belt.

What if I never did martial arts before or if I am currently out of shape?

At Olympic Taekwondo Academy, we have ongoing enrollment, so beginners are always welcome. Our special trial program makes it easy for new students of all fitness levels to get started.

In addition, the belt system used in Taekwondo allows all students to train at their own pace and to improve their physical condition gradually.
