Martial Arts training is a fun and safe activity that everyone in your family can enjoy. At Rotterdam Martial Arts we offer programs suitable for all ages, ability levels, and schedules. Our objective is for our students to reach their personal goals.
Tae Kwon Do
Tae Kwon Do is our core program, and translates to the “Art of foot and hand.” While focusing on fast, powerful kicking and punching techniques, Tae Kwon Do promotes discipline, physical fitness and self-confidence for men, women and children of all ages. Training involves constant repetition of basic movements in order to emphasize skills and perfect techniques. Students attend class at least twice a week to as part of the belt rank promotion.
Our kids programs are designed to improve physical fitness and abilities, help with the development of social and learning skills, promote self-discipline, and the development of self-confidence.
Little Dragons (ages 4-5)
The focus of Little Dragons is to introduce a child to exercise and self-control in a fun, structured and supportive environment, and prepare them for the more formal study of Tae Kwon Do in the Juniors Class (for children ages 6 and up). Our focus in these classes is to develop coordination, focus and self-discipline. Our Little Dragons earn belts and stripes, which helps encourage goal setting and provides motivation.
Juniors Classes (ages 6-13)
Our program is based on the traditional teachings of Tae Kwon Do and is designed to improve physical fitness, coordination, flexibility, speed and mobility in a fun structured and encouraging environment. In our Juniors classes, we start to focus more on self-discipline and self-control using the art of Tae Kwon Do. Most classes are offered by belt level, which fosters instruction geared towards the skill and ability of the students.
ADULT CLASSES (ages 14 and up)
Our adult program is also based on the traditional teachings of Tae Kwon Do and is designed to improve physical fitness, coordination, flexibility, speed and mobility. The adult program is taught in a less rigid environment than the Juniors classes, with our focus on physical fitness, flexibility and balance, self-defense, and stress relief. Classes are held in an open format with all belt levels studying and working together.
Self Defense - Defensive Hapkido
Defensive Hapkido is a specifically designed to help an individual defend oneself or others in real life situations. A stripped down version of Traditional Korean Hapkido, Defensive Hapkido utilizes the techniques that best adapt to themselves to real life self-defense situations. In Defensive Hapkido, you will learn how to employ joint locking techniques, striking and useful kicks to subdue attackers quickly and efficiently. Within our system of Defensive Hapkido, we have incorporated some of the striking techniques of Krav Maga and Muy Thai, along with the ground techniques of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Classes are held 2x per week.
