If you are looking into Karate, Taekwondo, or any type of martial arts lessons, I would highly recommend the Colorado Taekwondo Institute.
My daughter began taking classes when she was about 6 years old, and participated for about a year before I decided to join her. She was having so much fun that I wanted to be a part of it. It was such a good decision for us! Participating in an activity that teaches us how to have fun and work hard, while encouraging us to develop and grow into leaders, has been an invaluable part of our family routine.
The Colorado Taekwondo Institute is a great way for the family to be active together, learn healthy competition, and gain leadership skills. My daughter and I both have the opportunity to learn together, practice with each other, and compete in the same events. This is an art that the entire family can be a part of because it allows for each individual to learn at their own pace while being part of a team.
A proud moment, as a mother, is to see my daughter teach younger students. While it is so special to watch her improve on her own technique and skill, it is magical to watch her step into the role of a teacher at such a young age. She is learning patience and discipline, while enjoying the activity and challenge of martial arts. The more comfortable she becomes with her skills in martial arts, the more confident she becomes in other areas in life.
If you are thinking of trying out martial arts lessons, come to the Colorado Taekwondo Institute. We have locations in Conifer/Bailey/Aspen Park, Lakewood/Green Mountain, Littleton/Morrison, Golden/Wheat Ridge, and Westminster/North Arvada. Come see what they have to offer. Bring the family and try out a class. It is a great workout and family friendly. We would love to have you!
