This is not only a great place to learn Taekwondo but a place the whole family feels welcome! I would highly recommend Fort Bend Taekwondo.

My daughter's experience with Taekwondo has been so much deeper than learning Taekwondo itself. Ms. Chapman's program has provided lessons in endurance, responsibility, courage and instructing others. I cannot say enough about the growth I have seen in my daughter in all of these areas. I highly recommend Taekwondo but more specifically recommend the Fort Bend Taekwondo program. Mallory Thornton

We have two boys at Ft Bend Taekwondo with Coach Carol currently and we all love it there. This is a very family oriented environment from the top down for both the children and the parents. Not only does Coach Carol teach Taekwondo but she teaches the students life lessons and helps them follow and live by the Taekwondo Tenets. our boys have been students for around three years now. It is amazing to see how much they have grown as young men because of Coach Carol and her coaching staff. Ft Bend Taekwondo is also not just about Taekwondo. Coach Carol is always looking for different events to put on or attend as a school for the students AND parents to grow in all ways in their lives. We love this school, Coach Carol and all her supporting staff and always recommend Ft Bend Taekwondo to anyone and everyone. Adam Richardson

My mom and dad wanted me to join Taekwondo, but I was reluctant too. I am sure glad that I listened to my parents and joined Fort Bend Taekwondo. From the moment I walked into Fort Bend Taekwondo, Mrs. Chapman and her staff made me feel comfortable and safe. They welcomed me in and I found myself wanting to learn all the kicks, forms and excercises they Had to teach me. Initially, I was scared and not very confident in myself or my abilities. I didn't believe I had what it takes to do Taekwondo. Mrs. Chapman quickly proved me wrong. With each new form she taught me and new kick I learned, I felt more confident in myself. Not only did I feel myself getting physically stronger, I felt my mind getting stronger too. My mind was becoming more clear and I could focus better. At each class Mrs. Chapman and her staff make learning fun. They are always there to offer help and encouragement. I find myself always wanting to do my best. Fort Bend Taekwondo is a great place to learn new things, build strength, increase confidence and build great friendships. I am so happy to be part of the Fort Bend Taekwondo family. Sincerely, Brianna Bacher

It's been close to a year that we've been with Mrs. Carol at Fort Bend Taekwondo.Mrs Carol is a wonderful instructor, that makes the classes fun but also teaches the kids discipline. I recommend coming here, it's a wonderful after school activity for our children to invest their time and it teaches self control, and manners while having FUN!

I absolutely love Fort Bend Taekwondo. The whole crew is amazing. The owner, Carol, is a rock star. Classes are exciting and fun. My son looks forward to class each time. He has gained self-confidence and it is so wonderful to see him feel proud of his accomplishments. This has really helped us, and I cannot say enough wonderful things about Carol and her crew. She takes the time to know each student and make them feel welcome. Our family <3's Fort Bend TaeKwonDo!!!!

Our youngest boy, Patrick, has been going there for 6 months now where he is now a orange belt. He is not sporty and I have been pleased how he has progressed. Initially he was pretty un-cordinated and I have watched him grow in his form and confidence. I was concerned that he would loose interest but the good news is he is still enthusiastic about going. He is making some new friends there.

It is not all work either where there is a fun side to the practices. Most practices end with a game of dodgeball with the ball being thrown by the instructors. Patrick was delighted with getting to be the last one on his birthday and speaking of birthdays, the kids get to break a board on their birthday. (Patrick has his proudly on display in his bedroom).

In addition, Carol runs the occasional Saturday play evening to give the parents a day off. Patrick has attended 2 - one a Nerf party, the other a Pokemon night- and he loved then both.

I am looking forward to the new building which is a bit further away just off the feeder (I live very near today) but it will offer improved parking.

Mrs. Chapman made our whole group feel comfortable as we tried out TaeKwonDo for the first time. I was impressed stepping foot in the door, a well-equipped, clean, organized studio that was ready and waiting for us! A huge thanks to Carol Chapman and Nora!

We love this place. We have a 5 year old who is pretty timid in large group settings. We went to 4 martial arts places in the Katy area. The minute we walked into FBT we knew we'd love it. Everyone was so informative and friendly and were so great with my son and put him right at ease from the minute he walked in. Now he has been a member for about 6 months. He doesn't complain about going, is motivated to practice at home and is totally motivated to win the weekly stripes on his belt. The two things I love the most about the lessons are the importance of discipline and the lessons. I feel like these days our kids have so many distractions and I love that in these lessons the teachers force the kids to focus on what they are doing and the instructions they are giving out. The other thing I really like is that in every class about 5-8 minutes is spent talking about important life skills, memory skills, determination, confidence and so on. Its more than just physical activity, its really a way of life.

Fort Bend TKD Weekly Update 03/31

WEEKLY UPDATE – MARCH 31

 

SKILLS STRIPE FOR THE WEEK

REVIEW WEEK

This week is review week! We’ll be reviewing our testing procedures each day in our taekwondo classes. We will review for any missing stripes for students who want to test next week.

Please note that we can effectively review for 2 stripes in class, and we determine what we review during our warm-ups as we determine who needs what stripe.

Students who are missing multiple stripes are strongly encouraged to attend classes three times this week and also attend our testing readiness clinic this Saturday (see below for more information).

 

 

TESTING REGISTRATION DEADLINE IS WEDNESDAY

Students who plan on testing next week must register for testing by Wednesday, April 3.  ALL STUDENTS WHO PLAN TO TEST MUST REGISTER.

All students must have 6 stripes on their belts to test. Students in our kids and teen/adult classes MUST have their rainbow stripe as one of these 6 stripes.

Students testing for black belts must test on testing day, and not either make-up testing. Students are to wear full formal uniform: jacket, pants, & belts. White t-shirts should be worn under jacket.

All orange belts & higher must bring all gear to testing.

Students & all spectators are expected to be exhibit the tenets of TaeKwonDo during testing. Failure to do so will result in removal from the premises. Students who arrive late forfeit their right to test.

Testings are divided by your CURRENT belt rank/age group – not what you’re testing for!

You will need to complete one form per student. If you need to change the time of your testing, please be sure to contact us directly, and not re-do the form.

You can ONLY REGISTER online. Please click this link to register – and do it ASAP – the deadline to register is Wednesday, April 3: http://bit.ly/FBTKDAprilTesting

 

IT’S OUR 9-YEAR ANNIVERSARY – AND WE’RE CELEBRATING WITH THEMED CLASS DAYS

April 1 is our 9-Year Anniversary!!! We’ll be celebrating ALL WEEK with themed classes.

Here’s how this works: Much like red-ribbon week at school, each day will have a theme in which students can choose to “dress out” or participate in. Please remember, though, that we will still be running regular class activities including testing review – so you’ll need to be able to do taekwondo in whatever you wear for the day.

Here’s the themes for each day:

Monday – Cake for everyone!! No dress out for this day, but everyone will get a piece of cake!

Tuesday – Light it Up Blue – In addition to it being our anniversary, April 2 is Light it Up Blue day for autism awareness. Students can wear any blue shirt to class today. Bonus points if its a blue tkd shirt! Students will still need to wear their taekwondo pants.

Wednesday – Super Hero Day. Time to dress like your favorite super hero!

Thursday – Crazy hair day – Remember that orange belts and higher ranks will still need to wear their helmet when we spar.

Friday – Pajama Day – Yeah, I know our uniforms are sort of like pajamas – but today you get to wear your actual pajamas to class.

 

BE SURE YOU’RE READY TO TEST WITH OUR READINESS CLINIC SATURDAY, APRIL 6

Make sure you’re ready for testing with our testing readiness clinic!

Saturday, April 6 from 10 to 11 a.m.

This clinic is open to all taekwondo students who are planning to test at our April testing. We’ll go over techniques for your forms and one-steps, sparring, and practice board breaking on the bags and targets. THIS IS NOT TESTING – it’s an extra clinic to be sure you’re ready for testing.

Students who only need 1 or 2 stripes are strongly encouraged to attend this clinic so they have a shot at being able to test next week.

Be sure to bring your sparring gear and wear your belt, along with TKD pants and uniform. Register at the front desk, on our mobile app, or online here: http://bit.ly/GetReadyToTest
