Fast paced and fun-filled classes are approximately 30 minutes long. The key is the emphasis on advancement and growth based on each child's individual pace. Classes become more challenging as each child demonstrates the readiness to accept more complex skills. Children will begin to grasp the concept of self-discipline as they achieve goals. When he/she tackles more difficult goals, the self-confidence grows and serves as a strong foundation in all aspects of life, including academics, sports, arts, and socially as well.

Bill Cho's United Taekwondo Center's goal is to help your child and our student develop a Black Belt Attitude - "I will never give up!". More importantly though, for parents of kids, we focus on helping parents instill the life skills and values inherent in the martial arts. These include confidence, self-control, perseverance, respect, pride, courtesy and indomitable spirit.
Our children's program is an introduction to basic martial arts skills. Most importantly for your child in this stage of life, we teach body awareness, balance, gross motor skills, and social interaction.
We know that as Black Belts, we have a huge influence on and responsibility with your children and so we use this influence to teach safety skills as well. Stranger Awareness and many other areas we feel are important for your children to be aware of.
Children here have the opportunity to earn additional awards through excellent behavoir and tasks at home and at school. When your child bring his/her "Task Coupon" to the next class, we will award him/her with stripes or merit badges to reward them for their effort.
Our Formula is Simple:
Self- Discipline + Self-Defense = Self-Confidence
Self-confidence = Success and Happiness
If that seems easy, it's not! You see, by teaching children self-discipline and self-defense, children become empowered with the two most important tools they need to build confidence. With confidence, children will succeed and find happiness in life.
We begin with Self-discipline. We help our children develop self-discipline through our unique 3-step process.
Step 1 Understanding it : Through class discussions and stories our instructors teach our children the meaning and benefit of having self-discipline.
Step 2 Practice it : During classes, our instructors help children to face and overcome challenges, soon they start to discipline themselves and begin to achieve on their own.
Step 3 Apply it : Once our children successfully develop self-discipline in our school thyey begin to use it on the outside in everything they do, such as school and sports.
The truth is, Self-Discipline is the key to success because if you never quit you will eventually cross the finish line, just like the story of the Tortoise and the Hare.
While teaching self-discipline, we also teach our children the art of self-defense. Never undervalue this important life skill. Children today face more bullies and negative peer pressure to take drugs and alcohol than at any time in our history. This is why at Bill Cho's United Taekwondo Center; we teach a realistic self-defense system so children learn to defend themselves in virtually any situation. They also learn conflict resolution and when they should and shouldn't use their skills.
Studies have shown that:
- Children who learn self-defense become more assertive and less aggressive
- Children who know how to defend themselves usually don't have to, because they carry themselves in a more confident manner, and confidence alone is a deterrent to bullies.
Our children's classes are taught in a safe, fun and exciting environment, where students are not compared to each other, but rather progress at their own pace (their personal best). The competition is "from oneself to oneself".
FAMILIES TRAINING TOGETHER
Taekwondo is a great family activity. Make family time more than watching a movie.
When participating as a family, martial arts provide a unique opportunity for sharing in a non-competitive fun activity. Plus, parents have the opportunity to reinforce at home the life lessons taught in our martial arts classes.
At Bill Cho's United Taekwondo Center, we encourage siblings and parents to participate in classes. It allows everyone to do something together while helping each other achieve goals and personal growth. Studies show that when people do an activity together the success rate is much greater. You can help motivate, encourage, and enjoy each others company. We also have family discounts. Don't just sit in the chair watching classes, come and join the family.
While martial arts provides a solid physical workout, it has many mental benefits as well. The St. Charles and Sycamore martial arts adult students usually find that they better cope with stress, sleep better at night, work better during the day and just overall feel better. They also have a greater peace of mind due to the knowledge and expertise on what to do if faced with a dangerous situation.
The greatest benefit of martial arts at Bill Cho's United Taekwondo Center, however, is the increased sense of self-confidence it builds in our students.
No matter what the style of martial arts - whether it's karate, kung fu, taekwondo, jujitso, judo, aikido, tai chi or kendo - the physical and mental benefits are similar.
