Virginia TaeKwonDo Classes

Martial Arts Lessons from Virginia TaeKwonDo Academy

Instructor Scott Baker and his staff are dedicated to providing a high level Martial Arts experience to you. Mr. Baker and his instructor team focus on creating well rounded martial artists using Traditional TaeKwonDo as the foundation then adding Gracie style Jiu-Jitsu for a full learning experience. There are specialized classes for Tiger Cubs (preschool), Juniors and Teens, and Adults. Students can start at any time and move forward at their own pace. Annually qualified instructors are dedicated to excellence and continuing education.

While training authentic and highly skilled TaeKwonDo artists, we believe the highest purpose of TaeKwonDo education is to prepare students for the responsibilities of citizenship. TaeKwonDo is about real and powerful experiences, resulting in the discovery of innate capabilities and a heightened sense of responsibility. To that end, we encourage our students to use their Martial Arts knowledge to improve our communities through one act of leadership at a time. By signing up your child for our program, you can help them in several areas including:

  • Respect
  • Enhance Concentration
  • Build Self-Esteem and Self-Confidence
  • Improve Grades and School Performance
  • Eliminate Negative Attitude and Habits

Studies have shown many benefits to training in martial arts.

Tiger Cubs (4-5 years old)
Our Tiger Cubs program is intended to introduce young children to basic concepts of TaeKwonDo in preparation for promotion to regular junior classes. In addition to rudimentary physical exercise and self-defense, the Tiger Cub curriculum focuses on enhancing social skills, attention span, concentration, self-discipline, self-awareness, balance, and coordination. Tiger Cubs are instructed in stranger safety and basic emergency preparedness.

Juniors (6-14 years old)
Juniors are taught in separate classes, with no large adults mixed in. Junior classes teach advanced concepts of TaeKwonDo, as well as safety and self-defense training. Classes are further subdivided based on proficiency level to ensure that each child receives the proper attention and is taught at an appropriate pace. No one ever “sits on the bench.” Junior classes build self-esteem and a positive attitude during important formative years, as well as long-lasting friendships and leadership skills.

Adults (15 and older)
Our TaeKwonDo program is success-oriented. We will work with you to achieve your goals. Whether it’s having you in the best physical shape of your life, or providing you with the self-confidence of knowing how to defend yourself in a life threatening situation. No matter what shape you are in today, or how old you are, our TaeKwonDo classes are suited to fit your needs. You can achieve incredible endurance, flexibility and coordination in a short time, all while having the time of your life. Adult classes also move beyond a basic understanding of TaeKwonDo into theory and real-life application of the art.
