Teens and Adults

Songahm Taekwondo is an exciting and powerful martial art known for its dynamic kicking and hand techniques. Learn serious self-defense, improve your physical fitness level and reduce stress while developing a positive mental attitude and high personal goals.

We train our students to the best of their ability. Some students come to us in shape, while others have come to us overweight. Most come to us with limited flexibility. Adults start at any age, as we have had some adults who started as late as age 65, and have still earned their black belts. As a student, you are looked upon as an individual, never compared to anyone else. Our instructors will be there every step of the way. All that is expected of you is a willingness to try.

Here are some of the benefits you can expect from training in Taekwondo:

Fitness – The principals of Taekwondo techniques are based on the design of your body. For power, you develop the larger, powerful muscles of the torso. The speed of the techniques cames from the fast, agile muscles of the arms and legs. As you progress in Taekwondo you will learn to coordinate this speed and power, and develop the concentration to focus all of your body’s strength into a small, hard striking surface like the edge of the hand or the heel of the foot.

Self-Defense – When the speed and power developed through Taekwondo is used in a self-defense situation against the sof vulnerable parts of an attacker’s body, the result can be incredible. Taekwondo allows a woman to emphazise many of her natural physical strengths, such as power in the legs, while learning a method of self defense efficient against a much larger opponenet. Knowing you can defend yourself, your confidense will grow. And confidence alone is usually enough to deter potential attackers.

Self-Confidence – This does not come naturally for many people, but self-confidence can be developed over a period of time. Through Taekwondo, as you accomplish new goals, your confidence level increases. Taekwondo instills a sense of discipline and self-confidence that can carry over to all aspects of your life.
