Imagine Your Kid With More Confidence!

Imagine Your Kid With More Confidence!

Actually, if your kid is already training with us at United States Taekwondo in Buda, Texas, you are most likely already witnessing it first hand. Confidence building is woven into the very fabric of our karate program!

How does it work?

It begins from the moment a student sets foot onto our training floor for the first time. The learning starts immediately, as does the first taste of success. Students learn their first few basic karate techniques and memorize our Student Creed to earn their first belt: the White Belt. This early “victory” sets the stage for bigger wins in the future. There is something really special about seeing the belt tied onto a student’s waist for the first time.

The United States Taekwondo Belt System

At our school, we learn goal setting through a series of short and long term goals. Our martial arts students earn “stripes” on their belts by learning different pieces of our curriculum. Earning stripes motivates the students to work hard and also lets them know where they stand in relation to the requirements for their rank in our system.

In addition to these “physical” stripes, students also earn what we refer to as “home”stripes. Home stripes are earned by demonstrating respect, responsibility, and effort at home and at school. These stripes are differentiated and individualized for each student, and reflect our philosophy of constant improvement.

If you’re a current student at our school, keep up the great work, and if you haven’t joined our team yet, visit us online at BudaKarate.com, shoot us an email, or call us at 737-999-4004.
