I started at Family Tae Kwon Do Champions with my two sons because I felt they would greatly benefit from Tae Kwon Do. I wanted them to improve self-confidence and focus, but I also like how Family Tae Kwon Do Champions demonstrate and teach the importance of respect of self and others. My sons are getting everything I expected out of Tae Kwon Do. What I didn’t expect is how much I would get out of it. I have had surgeries on one shoulder and on both knees and continue to have significant knee pain and weakness issues, but I have been able to continue to progress. This is mainly because of the great instructors who work with me on modifying movements when needed to protect my knees and compensate for the weakness. For me, the progress I’ve made is not just moving up belt levels but also losing over 20 pounds and most significantly I was able to jog without limping for the first time in close to 2 years and a few weeks ago I was able to actually sprint. This now means I am able to race my sons, which I have not been able to do for years. Family Tae Kwon Do Champions has given me the ability to do more with my sons and we all look forward to every class we take so we can learn and progress together.
Today my son came home from school, and when I asked what he did, he told me he helped a new friend focus on the positive so he’d have a better day. It’s a lesson FTKDC mentions many times, and I’m so proud that he is applying it in his daily life. FTKDC doesn’t just focus on Tae Kwon Do but life lessons as well. The instructors are wonderful with the kids, and I’m so happy my son goes here!
The staff in Oconomowoc is amazing! My 2 sons found comfort, fun, and focus at ages 5 & 9. As parents, we found respect from our boys and drive to improve. We now go as a family for classes. Being together has improved our lives to be a stronger unit, and, most of all, it is fun, and you feel good when the day is done. It is so much more than I could have imagined. Thankful to have found this great community asset.
This has been such an amazing experience for our son. Promoting a healthy lifestyle, being respectful, and standing up for yourself with confidence are just a few of the many good lessons he’s learned. I can’t wait until his little sister can join him!
I cannot say enough positive things about this place. With a little encouragement from a friend, I checked it out a few short months ago. To say it was way outside my comfort zone is an understatement. Trust me when I say I had zero skills and no clue what Tae Kwon Do even meant. I have gained so many personal benefits in all aspects of my life; mind, body, and spirit, and am having a great time while learning. It’s also uplifting to witness what it does for the kids. The instructors are incredible!! There is a reason that FAMILY is part of its name.
