Taekwondo Classes : What to Expect
Information for those doing Taekwondo for the first time
(for students doing special introductory classes and first-timers)
What to bring:
No special clothing or shoes are required. Casual shorts, pants, T-shirt or exercise wear are perfect. You need to be comfortable and you need to stay hydrated (water bottle).
If you decide to join us for the long term, you’ll receive a free uniform when you enrol.
Warm up & Stretch with Instructor
Your instructor will meet you at the door as you arrive for your first class.
When the class begins you’ll be guided through an easy warm-up and stretch before moving to the back of the training area with an instructor.
We teach you individually for the trial classes so you feel comfortable while learning what to do and can see the class training at the same time.
What is Taekwondo?
The aim of our Taekwondo classes is to teach the Art of Taekwondo. It includes an exciting and varied mix of traditional martial art techniques and practical, effective defense skills. It develops fitness, flexibility, self-confidence and determination while being a fantastic and fun recreational activity.
After Your Taekwondo Trials
When your trial classes are over it’s time to decide your next step.
You can sign up as a member, or you can stop there. There’s no obligation to continue. That’s entirely up to you.
You will walk away knowing a little more about Taekwondo.
Becoming a Member
Becoming a member is easy. Your instructor will ask you to fill out a form with your contact details.
That form goes to our office and the next day you’ll receive an invoice for $89.
Once you have paid, your uniform will be available at the same branch you did your classes.
The payment means you are now a member of all branches of Pacific International Taekwondo, and is your first month’s fee.
We call progress through belt levels grading. Grading sessions are held in March, June, September and December.
There are 10 belt levels to move through from white belt to black belt. Each level encourages you to aim for the next.
You gradually learn new techniques and achieve new skills that once seemed out of reach.
The Practice of Taekwondo is an "Art"
Learning the Art of Taekwondo is a fun, self-challenging and empowering way to get fit, gain confidence and discover what you CAN do when you have good instructors to show you the way forward.
