A Few Words
I’m Donovan Rider, Owner / Instructor here at Charleston Taekwondo.
As a martial arts instructor with extensive experience training kids, there is nothing better than seeing them grow firsthand.
But more important than the martial arts skills they learn… is the personal skills they develop and carry for life.
Because martial arts is so much more than just kicking and punching, and getting the next colorful belt.
It’s about developing confidence, discipline, character, focus and respect.
With every class we teach, your kids are growing in mind, body and character.
That’s because martial arts provides instant positive feedback. Through learning to focus on the core moves, they develop discipline and respect. They can instantly see and feel a difference, making them destined to build confidence, self-awareness and self-respect.
And of course it’s a ton of FUN!
That’s why I love teaching martial arts to kids in this community, and why I know your kids are going to LOVE training.
So please have a look below to find out exactly how your kids can benefit from our fun martial arts classes.
Does Your Child Have
They are great kids but they just don’t listen, often being told to do something a hundred times before they actually do anything.
They’re bright and intelligent, yet have trouble paying attention at home, in school or in any important situation, even being classified as an “ADD” or “ADHD” child.
They are simply shy and lack the confidence and self-esteem needed to live up to their full potential.
The Difficulties of Raising Children Are Near Endless
There really is a safe, natural and extremely effective way to take charge and positively impact every aspect of your child’s life. It doesn’t take medicine, therapy, harsh actions, or cajoling your kids to change their behavior. Instead, it is teaching your kids self-discipline, hard work, confidence, and respect. This done in a way that empowers them while also teaching them humility, and promoting health and fitness… all at the same time.
Sounds like a wonder cure doesn’t it?
But there really is something that does all that. And that’s the power of martial arts classes.
your child will grow with every class!
Children are like sponges. They absorb things quickly and easily – far more easily than we do as adults. In fact, parents can sometimes see a difference in their kids after just one martial arts class. Each additional class they attend increases their knowledge and growth.
Not only are they getting healthier as they learn martial arts, they’re also learning the value of self-discipline and respect. When you enroll your child in a martial arts class, you’re giving them much more than the physical skills we teach. You’re giving them the opportunity to thrive.
We started our 4 year old son just 5 weeks ago and have already seen him come out of his shell and start showing more focus and respect at home. He normally doesn't like to be left in large groups but he flourishes at taekwondo class and is so eager to go each time. I also love how instantly all of the instructors knew his name and don't forget it, that's amazing!
From my son:
Hello! My name is Donovan, I’m seven years old. I am a Taekwondo student and I’ve been taking Taekwondo for two months. I’ve learned the first form and some punches and kicks, even how to count in Korean! My favorite part about Taekwondo is the dodge ball at the end, and they make really fun games out of the exercises at the start and middle. You get a uniform and a white belt when you start and your shirt matches your belt. I really hope you want to go there. It’s really easy to make friends there!
Without fail, all the parents have huge smiles while watching their kids in action. And all of the kids are either smiling or super focused. There's no reason to take your kids anywhere else!!!
Couldn't have been happier with their Little Tigers program!! I started both my 3yr old and 4yr old at the same time and the growth both of them did there was incredible! My 3yr old has come out of his shell and was able to speak a lot more without being shy!! My 4yr old has learned self control which I still use, and it has helped us with the terrible 4s! The only thing that broke my heart about moving was leaving their Taekwando classes and their amazing teachers!! If I ever move back I will not hesitate to bring Nathan and Daniel back because its hard to find great and dedicated teachers like Luke, Rachel and Donovan!! Thank you for all your patience, laughs and great memories!!
Awesome school with awesome instructors!!!
Best in Charleston!
