The Warriors is Taekwon-Do training for intermediate level juniors. Children between the ages of 8 and 14 who have reached the level of Green belt in ITF Taekwon-Do. This class has all the fun of the Taekwon-Do Tigers except the syllabus is more advanced. There is a larger emphasis on sparring which is light and controlled and there is encouragement for students to enter into Taekwon-Do and Kickboxing junior tournaments.
Taking part in junior tournaments is an ideal way to help the child develop a strong sense of confidence. Tournaments are also a great place for children to mingle with like minded Taekwon-Do warriors and develop friendships.
Our warriors have traveled all over Ireland to compete at junior tournaments and all have been days filled with mighty craic and enjoyment.
We do not put any emphasis on winning, winning is just something that happens naturally. At Warriors we place all the emphasis on participation and enjoyment. Winning a medal is an added bonus, but not the be all!
Our recipe for producing solid young athletes has been in full swing since 2004, and with a large class of Warriors at the moment, things can only get better especially with the current crop who have an outstanding attitude to training and participation.
Keep an eye out for our first batch of Taekwon-Do black belts from the Warriors group, no doubt they will be our next European and World Champions.
