Kang’s MMA programs in Silver Springs are open to young children, teens, and adults. Through the Korean martial art of Taekwondo, our students learn discipline and gain self-confidence as they progress from a beginner white belt to an accomplished black belt. With our “tip testing” system, students gain competence in each belt level’s kicks, form, physical fitness, and behavior requirements. Monthly belt promotions highlight months of training and put students “under the spotlight” to show off what they’ve learned, test their endurance through sparring, and overcome the mental pressure of breaking boards in front of family and friends. With each new belt earned, students’ self-confidence soars.
Some of the benefits of learning kicks and memorizing forms — a “routine” of blocks, stances, kicks, punches, and turns — is that it requires focus, discipline, and effort to learn. These skills, along with spatial awareness, balance, and coordination improve as students advance to higher belts. The Five Tenets of courtesy, integrity, perseverance, self-control, and indomitable spirit all come into play as students train on a daily basis.
With consistent training, parents often see their child’s behavior improve at home and school. As adults get physically stronger and master techniques, they gain confidence in themselves and their ability to defend themselves. Families—parents and children– who train together have the added benefit of building a positive, healthy lifestyle that will undoubtedly impact them for the rest of their lives.
Our doors are always open for parents and guests to observe class or to speak with our staff about becoming part of our Kang’s Mixed Martial Arts family.
