- Tae Kwon Do Programs
FLYING KICK FITNESS CENTER is dedicated to the development and education of the whole student through training in Tae Kwon Do. Emphasis is placed upon improving the potential of each student. FLYING KICK is unique due to the special curriculum developed by Master Al-Atrash. The Children’s Program seeks to teach courtesy, self-control, and self-esteem.

Children’s Classes (5 and Up): These classes form a Tae Kwon Do curriculum that develops a child’s physical and mental abilities. Classes are fun but very structured and are always taught with the safety and well-being of each child in mind. Emphasis is based on exercising and learning Tae Kwon Do techniques at each child’s specific rank in a positive environment where each student can grow at his or her own individual speed and learn according to his or her needs. In addition to the physical abilities children are taught that Tae Kwon Do is a defensive martial art. The meaning and importance of the five tenets of Tae Kwon Do are emphasized: Courtesy, Integrity, Perseverance, Self-Control and Indomitable Spirit. Each class is 40-60 minutes.
