Lil’ Dragons (3-5)

 

unnamed-11Our Lil’ Dragons Program is designed for children ages 3, 4 & 5 years of age.  We offer three classes per week.  Our Lil’ Dragons Program is a detailed curriculum that focuses on improving preschool-age children’s basic motor and listening skills.  These skills will help them enter society with a more confident and enthusiastic outlook.
They will become better students in school, better listeners at home, and more ambitious towards the future.  We believe that the time between the ages of three and six are the most important years of a child’s development.  Our program will enhance positive development in a fun and motivating way.

The Little Dragons curriculum consists of developing eight major skills that are necessary for participation in any sport or activity:
•    Focus
•    Teamwork
•    Control
•    Balance
•    Memory
•    Discipline
•    Fitness
•    Coordination

The curriculum also contains eight Little Dragons Personal Development Skills that are used to reinforce family values.

Upon completion of our Little Dragons Program, your child will become focused and motivated to achieve any goal they set in life.

Juniors (6-12)

Our Junior Program teaches self-confidence, focus, self-discipline, courtesy and teamwork in a fun environment.

During a typical class students may participate in a variety of activities such as:unnamed-9

•    Working with an instructor to learn or improve their Form
•    Practicing sparring or One-Step skills
•    Working with a partner on target drills to learn to punch and kick more effectively
•    Participating in a relay race
•    Learning about bullies or Stranger Danger, Jumping rope, Practicing kick combinations, using the rail for support, and other fun cardio, strength and agility drills.

TaeKwonDo can also become an influential tool in a child’s personal development such as:

•    having the self-confidence and strength to better deal with bullies
•    developing the self-discipline and self-control to not bully others
•    combating childhood obesity
•    learning to focus and improve school performance
•    setting and achieving short term and long term goals
•    becoming role models and develop leadership qualities

Adults & Teens(13 & Up)

unnamed-8Adult and Teen classes provide an excellent strength training and aerobic workout for wide range of ages and abilities. Activities are designed to allow you to work out at your pace and level as strength, flexibility and endurance improve.

In addition to learning your current belt level Form, practicing sparring or One-Steps and learning how to defend yourself, you might use targets, pushups, sit ups and the rail in a variety of fun and challenging activities to increase flexibility and improve muscle strength.

 

The variety and individual challenge of TaeKwonDo can also help:

•    achieve and maintain a healthier lifestyle

•    improve endurance, strength and overall fitness

•    increase the likelihood that you will exercise regularly

•    develop the skills to defend yourself

After School Care & Tutoring

At John Emmons’ TaeKwonDo Academy, we also offer our current students an Aftercare program for grades K-8!

On days when Osceola county schools are in session, we will pick your child up from their school in one of our transportation vehicles and drive them back to the Academy.

Homework

unnamed-7Our aftercare room is a spacious area in our school that provides that adequate learning and studying environment for your child. Our aftercare providers will check bookbags and agendas for homework and will provide educational advice if the child needs help. We aim to have your child done with all of his or her homework by the time you arrive to pick them up. So all you have to worry about is what to cook for dinner!

If a child does not have any homework for the day, they are required to read one of our many books from their grade level for 30 minutes.


unnamedTaeKwonDo Classes

If your child’s class is scheduled our aftercare providers will make sure that he or she is dressed and ready for class. Each child is provided a cubby for which they can keep things like sparring bags and uniforms so they do not have to carry to and from school/home.

Snacks/Free Time

Our aftercare providers will provide a snack and juice drink to help carry your child over until dinner. A vending machine is also available to your child with snacks and drinks ranging from $0.25 – $1.00.

After all homework is complete, your child has a variety of activities to keep them occupied until they are picked up:

•    Movies
•    Books
•    Coloring Books
•    Giant Checker and Chess Tables
•    Playing Cards
•    Other Games and More

 

Fitness Class

Also available to the Adult Program is the Fitness class!

This class focuses solely on working out the body and can become a great fitnesssupplement for trips to the local gym. Workouts are specifically designed to focus on cardio, strength, endurance and stamina.

These classes are also available for family members of current students. A 15-30 minute mini-workout of sparring follows each Fitness class for TaeKwonDo Students.
