Many parents at Guardian Taekwon-Do enjoy enrolling their child in Taekwon-do because it is a total learning activity that involves striking, punching, kicking, basic forms, board breaking. This helps a child’s coordination, balance, and physical fitness.

Lil' Guardians Taekwon-Do for Ages 8 and Under
A specialized children’s class, developed for ages approximately 4-8 years (depending on maturity and social skills). This class is designed to implement fast paced goal setting with 12 levels. Students achieve these levels over a 14 -16 months depending on ability and learn anti-bullying, safety precautions, and improve their self-esteem and self control.
In relation to our Regular Program, Lil’ Guardians is a stepping stone between the white belt level and the yellow stripe level, where the elements of Taekwon-do are further broken down into lessons created specifically for a child’s understanding. After finishing the lil guardian program, students will join the regular classes to continue their journey to black belt.
