Taekwondo Level 1

Taekwondo Level 1 Curriculum is taught for the first 6 months to 1 year of training. This level is dedicated to getting a student comfortable with the basic kicks, form concepts, sparring concepts, and culture of our classes. After completing rotations A, B, and C in level 1, each student is then able to gain access to level 2. In order to do that, they must show that they can do all of the techniques covered in level 1 as well as tie their own belt.
