Taekwondo camps and classes

Find Taekwondo camps and classes listed below.

Taekwondo camps are a great option for many kids. Luckily, in Canada, there are many to choose from, including in Toronto, Mississauga, Scarborough, and Brampton. In addition to taekwondo summer camps, there are also winter, March break, and year-round afterschool and evening taekwondo classes and lessons. All of these programs teach kids the art of self-defence, and instill focus and discipline in them. Best of all, taekwondo for kids is fun!

What is taekwondo?

Taekwondo is a martial art of self-defense. It originated from Korea. “Tae” refers to the legs and lower torso, and “kwon” refers to the upper body and arms. Taekwondo training thus involves using one’s leg, feet, arms, and hands. It involves defending oneself effectively, by punching, kicking, and blocking. It also trains the mind to achieve focus, discipline, and patience, among other traits.

What do taekwondo camps and classes offer?

Taekwondo camps are martial art camps that teach taekwondo to kids. There are full-day camps, which run mostly during the summer. There are also part-time camps, which run in the summer and during the school year, holidays, and on PA days. And, some taekwondo outfits run after-school programs.

Taekwondo camps and programs are offered for kids of different ages and levels. For instance, there are taekwondo classes for beginners. These include classes for toddlers, 3 year-olds, and “tiny tiger” or “tiny tot” classes for kids aged 3 to 5. There are also children or junior classes for kids aged 6 and older, and adult and family classes.

Taekwondo camps, at all ages and levels, teach self-defence and basic fighting techniques. They also teach a number of other important concepts, skills, and traits. Below, we list some of the main ones:  

  • The taekwondo philosophy
  • The history of taekwondo
  • Spirit
  • Breathing techniques
  • Stretching and conditioning
  • Strength training
  • Exposure to basic blocks and strikes (hand and feet)

​Taekwondo belts or certifications

In taekwondo classes, children can earn different belts or certifications. The different taekwondo belts are listed below, in order of difficulty:

  • White belt (beginner level)
  • Orange belt (beginner level)
  • Green belt (intermediate)
  • Blue belt (intermediate)
  • Brown belt (advanced)
  • Black belt (advanced)

What are the benefits of a taekwondo camp or class for my child?

Taekwondo camps and classes have plenty of benefits for children of different ages. As we’ve seen, children learn self-defense and fighting techniques in these camps. This can boost confidence and self-esteem, and reduce the fear of being bullied. Also, in taekwondo programs, needless to say, children of all ages are very active and get plenty of exercise. This improves their fitness level and promotes their physical and mental health.

Most of all, taekwondo camps and classes can be fun and rewarding. For many children, they can be the ideal way to spend their free time.
