Courtesy, Integrity, Perseverance, Self-Control & Indomitable Spirit:
Taekwondo meets you where you are and takes you where you need to go in mind, body, and spirit. The dojang becomes a place for both expression and returning to center. You can blow off steam, relax, and have fun, all while deepening your resources in both the physical realm and the mental/emotional realm.
At Blue Ridge Taekwondo, we focus on creating a safe environment for people of all ages and abilities to learn martial arts and receive all the benefits taekwondo has to offer: Fitness, self-defense, discipline, and self-esteem. Everything we do is in relation to the Tenets of Taekwondo: Courtesy, Integrity, Perseverance, Self-Control, and Indomitable Spirit.
The curriculum includes forms, where one learns a set pattern of moves and techniques according to rank, and specific self-defense curriculum at each rank. Intermediate and advanced students also work on board breaks and light-contact sparring with protective gear. Taekwondo can support individuals and families as we work to stay healthy and active, manage behavior and attention issues and face the general challenges of youth and growing up.
