The ultimate goal of Phoenix Academy is to improve children’s fitness and self-esteem. We know how children could have confidence issues due to circumstances at home or school. Learning martial arts in a supportive, encouraging environment, we acknowledge not only their achievements when they succeed, but also their efforts as they learn. Our motto is “A Black Belt is a White Belt that never gave up!” Being supported by instructors and friends as they learn at their own pace, then building on basics they progress to more advanced levels. This is a structured, step by step process that is our proven formula to achieve self-confidence and successful habits that will last a lifetime.
Our structured program will develop students’ overall physical fitness and coordination. Learning Tae Kwon Do can be physically challenging but also very rewarding. It involves working all the muscle groups that help develop children’s growing bodies properly. But more than the physical benefits, we use martial arts as mechanism to develop respect to everyone, good character, and a positive outlook in life. Master Graves Believes that with a strong attitude you can achieve your goals, in life and in Martial Arts.
We have separate classes for different age groups for Children’s Tae Kwon Do to ensure that every student is challenged according to age and skill level.
Little Tigers – Age 4-5
Kids – Age 5-12
Youth – Age 13 & Up (transition to Adult Tae Kwon Do)
