First class of 2011
Classes at the La Palma Community Center started in 2001 and has grown very large since the beginning. The training features an emphasis on personal growth. Students improve physical fitness, achieve mental alertness, reduce stress and gain a positive attitude.

Classes consist of stretching, body conditioning, and self-defense techniques such as kicking, blocking, striking, and grappling. Our program is designed for all levels of athleticism and martial arts experience. The training encourages teamwork and personal responsibility in a safe, disciplined and respectful environment. Our training is appropriate for the age of the student and includes limited, controlled physical contact.

The program is divided into three classes: Beginner is for those with no prior experience in martial arts, Intermediate is for students with some background or ranks of Yellow through Blue belts, Advanced is for Red and Black Belts only. Intermediate members must already have standard Taekwondo or Judo uniforms and are eligible to participate in competitive events.

The focus of training at the La Palma Community Center is to give back to the community. Fees collected support the center and any class proceeds directly benefit the students.
 

Martial Arts For Kids
Age: 5 – 8
Saturdays: 9:00AM-10:00AM

This course will introduce very young students to the world of traditional oriental martial arts. It is a scaled back version of our regular training program; however the emphasis is in using martial art training as a way to improve upon discipline, to increase fitness, to learn teamwork, and to gain a positive attitude.

Choose this course for very young children who are interested in martial arts. Parents who are unsure of whether this kind of program is a good fit for their children are welcome to drop by for a free trial session and a discussion with the Chief Instructor before enrolling. All students will be eligible to test for rank (belt) promotion during the quarterly promotion exam. Upon achieving a Yellow Belt or higher; students may be assigned to more advanced classes.

To prepare beginning students for the training, a Taekwondo uniform, complete with patches and a white belt, is ordered from the instructor after enrolling for the first session for a low cost of $35.
