In addition to regular classes for children and adults, Young's Taekwondo School also offers a special class for children ages 3-5.
Young Champions Class offers children ages 3-5 an introduction to Taekwondo rooted in fundamental practices and focused on developing character qualities such as respect, discipline, and courtesy.
The class stresses personal development, good manners, respect for one’s self and others as well as following directions.
Young Champions teaches basic blocking and kicking for self-defense only. Instructors also emphasize that punching and kicking can hurt and should not be practiced on others.

The class also:
