The Mighty Lions classes emphasize focus and listening skills, following directions, confidence building, as well as respect for self and others, while working on physical conditioning through Taekwon-do practice.
This program is tailored for our younger students, and is adapted to shorter attention spans and a need for structure and kindness. Balance and gross motor skills are paired with courtesy and self control through training.
We have two air conditioned practice areas (do jangs), which means the Juniors and Mighty Lions classes can be run simultaneously. This works very well for many families who have children in both programs. Additionally, having two practice areas enables us to offer more classes each day, and to provide very specific programs for each age group.
All of our programs work on a rolling enrollment system, which means you can sign up at any time and start right away. Each beginner program includes a uniform (do bok) and patches so the new student has everything he or she needs to begin training right away.
The Mighty Lions program includes two classes per week. We are open six days a week, and offer each student more than one class daily for their age and rank. We also offer summer camps that are specifically designed for our younger students.
For over 20 years we have been proudly serving Montclair, Glen Ridge, Bloomfield, Nutley, Little Falls, Verona, East Orange, West Orange, South Orange, Caldwell, West Caldwell, North Caldwell, Cedar Grove and many more!
