their children all the time they would like due to many
factors. Here at Kim's Martial Art & Fitness Center, we

- Teenagers :
Today's teenagers face significant
challenges in many forms. The pressures that arise from
academic and athletic activities, peer pressure, and
potential crime increase the amount of stress that a
teenager can endure. Through the study of Tae Kwon Do,
students can learn to maintain their composure during
stressful situations in order to complete their established
goals. Our reading program is integrated as part of the
overall training so that student can be mentally and
physically prepared to face a complex world.
- Women :
Today, women face increased pressure at
home and on the job, as well as from the constant threat of
crime. Physical fitness has never been more important, and
making time for a good training program can improve both
mental and physical helth. Good physical conditioning,
however, must be combined with the ability to defend
oneself. Tae Kwon Do teaches women that skill. With improved
health, appearance, and self confidence derived from the
study of Tae Kwon Do, today's women is better able to deal
with the challenges at home, and in the street.
- Men :
All men benefit from the better health that
results from a vigorous training program. In addition, Tae
Kwon Do gives a man the sure knowledge that he is able to
defend himself and his family. Tae Kwon Do also increases
patience, self confidence, self control, and self discipline
which helps men to deal with the stresses of life today.
- The Mature Practitioner
Age can be a state of mind if the body is
maintained. Tae Kwon Do can help you to regain, maintain,
and increase strength, stamina, and flexibility. Our program
can be tailored to special situations such as arthritic
conditions or back problems. Tae Kwon Do stresses self
improvement over competition and so can be started at any
stage of life.
