More advanced techniques, fitness and skills for green belt and above

Advance classes are the next step in moving up from the foundation level; these sessions are for 6th KUP (Green Belt) and above. These sessions contain more advanced techniques, fitness and skills compared to our Foundation Taekwondo and lessons are increased to one and a half hours.

More About Our Advanced Class

At the advanced level, students learn about body armour and how to use the techniques on the body. At this stage, we can have sessions that are conducted while students are wearing complete protection while carefully supervised and supported by the coach or an assistant. These sessions are more disciplined compared to our Foundation Taekwondo sessions, with the element of fun still being present.

A higher level of fitness and agility is now expected and students in these classes begin to work through the higher belt system, learning more complex patterns and skills and getting closer and closer to achieving their Black Belt and beyond.

We recommend that students train at least twice a week in the advanced classes as the level of understanding required to learn new skills intensifies. Instructors now begin to assess the motivation, commitment and skills of students to enable them to select members for the clubs’ competition teams. It is from this point that students are encouraged to participate in competitions by joining the clubs’ ELITE FIGHT TEAM by invitation. Students are also supported to attend seminars and start preparing for their big goal: their black belt. Our aim for Advance Taekwondo classes is to achieve the student’s goals and help them to develop a deeper understanding of the sport. If you don’t give up, you will be a BLACK BELT!

What does it take to become a black belt?

Some Statistics

  • For every 10,000 students that join a Martial Arts Academy. HALF will drop out within the first 6 months.
  • Of those remaining students, about 1,000 will complete 1 year of training and then quit. 500 will study for 2 years, but only 100 will see their 3rd anniversary.
  • On average ONLY 10 will make 1st Degree Black Belt. Usually, only 1 or 2 will make it to 2nd Degree Black Belt
  • 1 shall go on to teach others what he/she has learnt, for the Martial Art is now a part of their life and they shall go on to share this life with others.
  • This person is a Black Belt! This person is 1 in 10,000.
Achieving a black belt requires commitment and self-discipline. This is a great life skill and along with other transferable skills taught in taekwondo, students go on to be confident, well-rounded individuals.

What do our students say?

I love attending advanced class as I like the new challenges set to better myself every time I train. I am still working towards my black belt. There are lots of different techniques you need to learn to become a black belt so, the advanced sessions break it all down and we get taught, in detail, each module. There is kicking, one-step sparring, free sparring, self-defence, pattern and breaking boards. I like kicking the best but enjoy practicing all the other techniques too. I find self-defence tricky but, the Masters are very patient and are on-hand when we all practice, to give individual help and guidance. My fitness and flexibility is improving all the time and I now feel stronger than I used to. Some of the black belts that attend the sessions come and help the lower belts in class and it’s nice to have someone who you train with helping you. I hope that when I get my black belt, I’ll be able to help others in the class. I’d like to eventually go on and teach taekwondo at the club and pass on everything I’m learning now.
