PROGRAMS

LITTLE TIGERS (4-6 YEARS OLD)

Little Tigers Taekwondo classes are structured to include age-appropriate instruction for younger children. We provide an atmosphere where kids learn, have fun, and want to continue coming back to class. Instructors maintain discipline while encouraging each child to learn at his or her own pace. 

The Little Tigers focus on proper etiquette and learn the foundation to become true martial artists. We also encourage physical fitness for each student. Parents are encouraged to observe classes or even take their own Taekwondo or Haidong Gumdo lessons at VTA.

TRADITIONAL TAEKWONDO FOR CHILDREN

Young Tigers (Ages 6-9)

Young Tiger classes are focused on teaching students proper technique along with discussions on when it is appropriate to use Taekwondo. The Vasquez Taekwondo program is an excellent fitness outlet and can provide supplemental training for other sports. Leadership and character development are a focus, and skills covered include concentration, coordination, focus, discipline, and structure. Students at this age can test for their Jr. Black Belt when they qualify. 

Youth Program (Ages 10-13)

The Youth Program is taught as an introduction to Adult Taekwondo classes. Students learn the same curriculum as our adult program with classes tailored to their age and maturity level. These classes tend to be full of energy and emphasize coordination and technique. We cover peer pressure, leadership, goal-setting, and hard work. Students also partner with children their own size making the practice more enjoyable.

TRADITIONAL TAEKWONDO FOR ADULTS

The Adult Taekwondo program is for both teenagers and adults, and ages span from fourteen years old through eighty years young. In this class, we teach the Martial Arts in its truest form. Students learn everything the Martial Arts has to offer: physically, mentally and spiritually. These classes are filled with strenuous workouts guaranteed to improve your fitness, and instructors are there to motivate and inspire each student. 

Students will grasp a greater understanding of the art but more importantly an understanding of themselves. Streetwise self-defense techniques are covered in this class along with the traditional movements of Taekwondo. However, students are never taught to be offensive, and a non-violent resolution is always emphasized.

HAIDONG GUMDO

Haidong Gumdo is a sword-based martial art that is rapidly growing in popularity throughout the US. It trains the body, mind, and spirit while teaching self-defense, self-confidence, character development, patience, concentration, meditation, and etiquette. 

The basic sword used in Haidong Gumdo is the traditional Korean long sword, which looks quite similar to a Japanese Katana. However, most training is done with a hard wood (mokgum) or foam sword for safety. We offer Haidong Gumdo for Children (ages 8-13) and Adults (ages 14+). Haidong Gumdo is open to everyone, and you don’t need a martial arts background to start.

TAEKWONDO BLACK BELT ONLY CLASSES

At Vasquez Taekwondo Academy, we have always believed that getting a Black Belt was like graduating from high school. You have the knowledge and skills to be useful, but there is so much more to learn. That’s why we have created a dedicated Masters Black Belt program to help you advance to 4th Dan Blackbelt and become a Master Instructor yourself. 

If you are transferring from another school in the area, we have a dedicated program to help you learn our material quickly and start progressing towards advanced dans. For returning black belts, we also have a fast-track program to help get you training and back on track working towards advancement. Even if you’ve been away from training for several years, you will be surprised how quickly things come back.
