Martial Arts Monday: Your First Lesson
Congratulations on registering for your free trial lesson! What can you expect when you first step on the mat?
First, make sure you wear comfortable, work-out clothes (uniforms come later). Shoes don’t matter, because you won’t wear them in class anyway.
You’ll start with a simple warm-up and stretching, followed by learning some basic taekwondo techniques. After that, we’ll learn how to use these techniques together, and how they can be applied to self-defense. At the end, you may even break a board! And of course, all along you’ll learn the importance of courtesy and discipline in taekwondo.
Don’t worry about falling behind. Your intro class will go at your own pace. You’ll definitely use muscles you’ve never used before, but you’ll still be able to walk out of the school when the lesson’s over. Taekwondo is a safe, fun physical activity for both children and adults.
