Leadership, Self-Defense, Fitness, Focus, and Purpose. We are a non-profit educational institution that uses martial arts as a tool to teach character, practical self-defense, and improved mental and physical fitness.
The Asian Arts Center Taekwondo School is a non-profit whose mission is to support families in the Miami Valley in their quest to raise happy and healthy children. When children don’t get enough exercise, they can suffer from bad grades and behavioral issues at school, obesity and related lifestyle diseases, bullying and low self-esteem. With only one or two PE classes a week and shortened recess time, children are getting far less than the seven hours of physical activity per week that the American Center for Disease Control recommends.
A recent study conducted by the University of Illinois in Chicago showed that kids who get an extra 90 minutes of physical exercise per week scored higher on tests in spelling, reading and math, in addition to gaining less weight over a three-year span. Children who participate in programs like ours at the Asian Arts Center develop higher self-esteem, have a better self-image, and get better grades. Kids in programs like ours are more coordinated, more flexible, have more core strength and are more successful in other sports and activities like gymnastics, soccer, dance and music. Furthermore, children who get the appropriate amount of daily exercise also enjoy the ability to sleep better and reduce stress levels.
Does Your Child Play Other Sports?
Martial arts athletes are fast, powerful, flexible and healthy. They have highly developed motor skills and excellent hand/eye, foot/eye coordination. Your child will be more successful on the court and on the field when he/she is also working out with us
Want a child who can defend him/herself?
While students are having fun working out, they are learning self-defense. Statistics show that one out of three kids will be bullied or be the victim of an attack. Each week, your child will learn new self-defense skills in the class, and this increases their self-confidence. There is no better confidence builder than knowing you can defend yourself.
In class each week, we help develop the students’ character to enable them to make better choices in life. They learn traits like respect, self-discipline and leadership. We equip them with the skills to be champions at home, school, and with friends.
In class, no one sits on the bench! Everyone works out together. Reasearch shows that people are 20% more successful when working with others. Children are even more influenced by their peers. At the Asian Arts Center Taekwondo School, your child is surrounded by people who are working out, training, accomplishing their goals and demonstrating positive behavior.
Positive Role Models
All of our instructors are motivated martial arts athletes who are dedicated to helping your child become their best. Our staff is always here for them. We are on their team to help them reach their goals and be successful in all of their endeavors.
Classes For Adults
Your body and mind will love our training. You will be working out with other adults who are focused on getting stronger, more flexible, more focused, and learning self-defense. We like to train our adults with other adults and not in a mixed setting. This allows you to move at your own pace and focus on your own training. Our goals for adults and children are the same, but our teaching method allows us to work with children on their level, and treat adults like adults.
The Asian Arts Center Taekwondo School’s mission is to strengthen body and mind, teach practical self-defense, and build character and inspire a purpose driven life.
