We understand that life can be a juggle! As a working parent, it can be difficult to run your children through to all the extra-curricular activities during the week – and that’s why we’ve included a martial arts lesson every afternoon at Inspire.
Taekwondo has always been a focus at Inspire since our inception in 2014, and here are a few reasons why:
Our program takes students from White belts, all the way to 4th Dan Junior Black Belt. How cool will it be for your child to achieve their black belt before heading to high school?
Inspire is thrilled to partner with Kukkiwon! Kukkiwon is home to the World Taekwondo Academy in South Korea, and is also the official global governing body for Taekwondo. The Kukkiwon style of Taekwondo is the a the adopted technical standards for the Olympics – which means while your child is participating in a martial arts class at Inspire, he/she is training an official Olympics sport.
Partnering with Kukkiwon means that:
Every afternoon that your child attends Inspire, they will be able to participate in a 35-minute Taekwondo lesson with our Black Belt instuctor. These lessons are organised to cater for all skill levels and ages and are non-contact to keep each afternoon safe and fun!
The Inspire Festival is a fun-filled community event, bringing together our students across all Inspire centres to celebrate their progression and achievements.
Twice a year, during the Inspire Festival, Inspire hosts Taekwondo grading events where Inspire students have the opportunity to advance to the next belt by demonstrating what they have learned during their classes – presenting skills, techniques and patterns.
Martial Arts isn’t just all about receiving the next belt, but also about having fun whilst staying active – which is why we implement a variety of games and challenges to keep each afternoon exciting and fresh.
Throughout the term, we have numerous competitions between children across all of our centres and a winner is decided based on who meets the criteria the most. Check out some photos and videos to see some of the fun things that we get up to during our classes!
