Pre-Teens TaeKwon-Do: Ages 8 to 12

Pre-Teens Ages 8-12 TaeKwonDo - Omaha Blue Waves Martial ArtsDEVELOPMENTALLY APPROPRIATE CLASSES

Pre-Teens TaeKwon-Do (Ages 8-12)

During the pre-teen years students begin to develop increased focus and physical coordination. In a martial arts class, these new found abilities mark a change in both the direction and the methodology of teaching. Play is replaced with repetitive skill set practice and an emphasis is placed on cognitive development. Students are expected to learn, understand, and live the tenets of their class including; courtesy, integrity, self-control, perseverance, and indomitable spirit. Martial arts become a vehicle for helping to teach positive values and ethical standards of conduct. At this age, students move into the standardized rank structure of the art which they are taking. All belts are earned through hard work, dedication, and practice. Although time in grade is a minor consideration for promotion, it is the successful accomplishment of skill sets that allow the students to progress in rank. No student is ever promoted without first being invited to and completing a skill level appropriate examination. For details about the skills required for each rank, please see the Core Competencies.

What is TaeKwon-Do?

TaeKwon-Do is a young martial art with deep roots. Traditional TaeKwon-Do draws its techniques from Shotokan, Kung Fu, and ancient Korean Arts such as Soobak, and TaeKyon.  These ancient arts were restyled after WWII.  Traditional TaeKwon-Do came into being through the efforts of a number of martial arts luminaries such as Gen. Choi, Hong Hi.  Although there are many different forms of TaeKwon-Do practiced today, Omaha Blue Waves Martial Arts is a traditional school. We teach the original Chang Hon patterns (hip rotation – pre-dating sine-wave) and require our students to learn a traditional curriculum which includes anatomy, physiology, and HooSinSool. We believe our focus on traditionalism and knowledge set us apart from the majority of our contemporaries.
