Tae Kwon Do
Students will be taught the basic philosophy of Tae Kwon Do. Dojang behavior is stressed and belts are earned through class participation, performance, and completion of belt requirements. More emphasis is placed on the mental aspect of Tae Kwon Do – Respect, Courtesy, Self Control, and Indomitable Spirit.

Discipline and Respect
Unlike all other athletic activities, martial arts focus on teaching life lessons just as much as they focus on teaching physical skills. Though its exact origins are not completely determined, Tae Kwon Do is believed to have been around for thousands of years. Historically, this discipline didn’t just focus on the physical. It focused on the mental and emotional as well. Tae Kwon Do requires students to demonstrate discipline and respect both in and out of the dojo. This means paying attention in class, referring to your instructors with the correct terminology, practicing at home, and respecting your parents and elders. At Hiawatha’s Martial Arts & Fitness, we aren’t just creating amazing martial artists, we’re creating amazing people.
