Our mission is to use the vehicle of Tae Kwondo to teach respect, discipline, and self-control in a Godly environment. Additionally, students will become more flexible, improve their cardio conditioning, and increase their overall level of fitness. We have classes available for almost every need. However, as homeschool parents ourselves, we specialize in homeschool students.
We teach traditional Tae Kwondo, using a system of ten colored belts so that students quickly begin to see the positive results of goal setting and hard work. Chad and Teresa Parrack, Owners and Chief Instructors, developed their ability to teach, train and lead as officers in the United States Army. They have sharpened these skills by parenting seven wonderful children.
Let us show you the benefits of Tae Kwondo. Let us partner with you and be another voice teaching the benefits of character, honor, respect, and hard work all while having a Great Time.
Let our family share with your family the benefits and blessings we have discovered in traditional martial arts.
Commonly Asked Questions
I'm not very flexible. Can I still train in martial arts? Oh, sure. We spend a little time in each class stretching, so gradually your flexibility will improve. People who are not flexible can still be strong and fast.
How many times each week can students work out? It is recommended that each student come to class at least twice a week. Students may attend more classes if they wish.
Are students required to compete in tournaments? No, it is not required, but it is highly recommended that you participate in tournaments during your training. It is a relatively safe way to challenge yourself to face an opponent that you haven't faced before, and to see how well you perform in a nervous situation.
What is the difference between tae kwondo and karate? Taekwondo is a Korean art, while karate is a Japanese art. Tae kwondo uses most of the same hand techniques as karate but emphasizes the kicks more. Tae kwondo is well known for its flashy, high, aerial and/or spinning kicks. However, all martial arts have benefits. We believe that it is more important to be comfortable with the school's overall goals, the instructor's teaching skills, and the learning atmosphere than to choose a school based only on the style of martial art or the price.
Do I have to bow? Why? Bowing is a way to show respect. It is comparable to a handshake, and is not an act of worship. There is no religion in tae kwondo. However, you must bow to your instructors and to other students to show that you respect them. They will also bow to you to show you the same respect.
Does martial arts training make a child aggressive? We teach a practical, responsible tae kwondo program. Children learn that martial arts is not about violence but about developing skills they can use safely in a tough situation. Any aggression the child brings in to the program usually disappears with continued training and increased self-esteem
