At what age do you start teaching students?
Currently, SMAA requires students to be at least five (5) years of age and older. We do NOT have a maximum age. We teach all students who would like to learn.
I am not that flexible. Will that be an issue for me as a student?
No! Flexibility is not a requirement to participate in class at SMAA. A strong desire to learn and perform at YOUR ability is the only requirement.
I have knee, etc injuries. Will that deter me from learning Taekwondo?
At SMAA, we keep all limitations of every student in mind, be it physical or mental. You are only limited by your mind. You are only required to the best of your ability. You are only required to give 110% of yourself at all times.
May I and/or my child try out a class or two before we sign up?
YES!!! We encourage everyone to sign up for our free introductory classes before making any other commitments. We are SURE you and/or your child will love our instruction, but we want to ensure you are making an informed decision. The Intro Classes are absolutely free and available with NO OBLIGATION OR COMMITMENT to continue. (However, 95% of our students enjoy the instruction so much, that they sign up for more!)
How often can I and/or my child attend class?
Students can attend any number of classes for they qualify for based on belt ranking and age. We require everyone attend a minimum of two (2) classes per week. This ensures your are growing in your Taekwondo journey and consistently expanding your mind.
How long does it take to reach 1st Degree Black Belt?
Our students typically earn their 1st Dan black belts in about three (3) years. Please keep in mind that number is not written in stone. It is only a gauge for you to strive for. Some students complete the curriculum in less time, some complete it in more.
How long are your classes?
What is the cost of instruction?
Monthly, tuition varies according to specials decided upon by the staff for that month. Please call 770.790.4190 for more information. However, on average Taekwondo and other martial arts instruction will cost between $75 – 150 per month.
Why is the cost so high?
Taekwondo training and other martial arts instruction is NOT a gym membership or aerobics class. Although all promote increased health benefits, Taekwondo classes teach survival skills that you just can't get from basic exercise programs.
