Students learn the basics of Tae Kwon Do techniques and forms, self-defense, beginning sparring, and for kids, life-skills.
At the end of the 6-month training, students will be able to execute 4 to 5 kicks, numerous blocks and strikes with accurate technique. They will have learned and performed 1-3 complete forms and have some basic sparring skills. Most will have advanced in at least one rank, typically 2 - 3.
The ATA Leadership program is an add-on program for students who desire to reach for a higher level in their training. It is by invitation only. This program offers extra and exclusive TKD and weapons training.
Once students in the Leadership program earn their black belts, they are eligible to become Apprentice Instructors upon showing clear understanding of the necessary material.
Leadership students are eligible to win points at ATA tournaments for a chance to win state, district, and world titles.
For students who have mastered the ATA Leadership Program and are looking for more, the ATA Legacy Program is the top level of training offered.
The most important element of this program is for Legacy students to learn how to pass their knowledge onto others and create their own Legacy.
It is the perfect blend of personal development and physical training sought by the elite martial arts athlete.
Martial arts is often practiced as an individual sport. Axon Academy offers Demo Team and Sparring Team for students who wish to be part of a team. Both programs are by audition only.
Demo Team students rehearse a choreographed piece set to music that they perform at testings and community events as well as compete at tournaments.
Sparring Team students participate in a special team sparring event at local and National tournaments in which the outcome of a competition depends on the whole team. Team members are expected to increase their athletic training for stamina and skills.
