TAEKWON-DO MOOSAS: AGES 6-8
6-8 years old is a fantastic age to start TaeKwon-Do. Training contributes to the development of motor skills, coordination and balance. It is also a key stage in childhood development where good habits and bad habits are formed in relation to their health and activity.
First and foremost our Moosa classes are fun, ensuring students remain engaged with what they learn. In these classes our fun warm up games are based around key skills for TaeKwon-Do such as balance, speed, agility and coordination. There are many different parts to TaeKwon-Do and our Moosa programme develops the foundations of this fantastic martial art.
