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 TaeKwonDo’s Class Policies and Procedures

We are committed to the health and safety of our Members as well as their choice to take classes either online or in-person and have developed sanitation and social distancing procedures for our facility and policies and procedures for online lessons.

In-Person Class Procedures and Policies

We are committed to providing the cleanest, safest environment for students taking classes during this time in our facility. To do so, we are:

1. Treating all surfaces (floors, mats, equipment, door handles, bathrooms, etc) with a professional antimicrobial treatment from Dis-in-Fx (a company we’ve used for over 6 years –  you can check out the video I made about it here.)

2. Setting up 9-foot spaces for students to remain in during class and a 3-foot walkway in between each space.

3. Allowing students to only use any equipment (targets, bags, etc.) that are placed in their workout space.

4. None or very limited physical contact between students and instructors.

5. Requiring all of our students ages 5 and 6 to have a parent or guardian in their workout space to help them maintain proper social distancing*.

6. Disinfecting all used equipment and floor space in between and/or after classes.

7. Strongly encourage students and their families  to follow the CDC’s prevention steps below to stop the spreading of illnesses:  https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/about/prevention-treatment.html

*Parents of any taekwondo student who has trouble staying in their individual workout space will also be required to attend class to help them maintain proper social distancing.

Additionally, we will also:

1. Require students taking class at the school to reserve a space on our online portal here: https://fort-bend-taekwondo.sparkuniversity.co/Class_Schedule.aspx

Students without a reservation will not be permitted to enter the facility.

2. Only allow students and Basic Skillz parents who are assisting their child in the facility.

3. Monitor all students and Basic Skillz parents for signs and symptoms of illness and not allow them into the facility if signs are present.

4. Not allow students or parents to use our restrooms unless it is a dire emergency.

5. Not allow students to have any food in our facility.

6. Provide gloves and masks for those who wish to wear them.

7. Require students to remain in their individual training space throughout class.

8. Limit access in the facility to a small pathway that leads directly onto the floor.

9. Due to the new policy and procedures, students who arrive after classes begin will not be allowed into our facility.

When students enter the facility for class, you will:

  1. Remain in your car until we give the signal to enter the facility. The signal will be the front door being propped open.
  2. Enter only through the front door.
  3. Stop at the front door to have your temperature checked with a touchless thermometer.
  4. Use hand sanitizer.
  5. Drop shoes off into one of our cubbies (please wear slip on/slip off shoes so that they are easy to get in and out of, i.e. flip-flops or crocs). Shoes MUST be worn into the facility.
  6. Remain 6-feet apart on designated lines as you make your way onto the workout floor.
  7. Enter the workout floor to your assigned mat area and stay within that area throughout the class.
  8. Dismiss one by one per instructor directions.
  9. Put shoes back on
  10. Use hand sanitizer as you leave the facility.

Just a few more things:

  1. Students should wear shoes they can slip on and off very quickly. Time is of the essence, and so we need students to be able to move in and out of the facility as quickly as possible.
  2. Students need to come in their uniforms with their belts ON. Should belts come off during class, students will need to put them back on themselves or put them in a corner of their workout space. Instructors will not re-tie belts.
  3. Students who have sparring gloves should bring them to class so that if we work on our heavy bags, their hands will be protected. Please be sure to disinfect your gloves before and after EVERY class.

 

ONLINE CLASS POLICIES AND PROCEDURES

1 All surface areas must be clear of all objects and potential hazards while taking classes.

2. Students must remain in view of the camera at all times during class.

3. Another person has to be either in the room or within hearing distance of any one-on-one lessons.

4. We strongly encourage parents or guardians to be nearby our 5- and 6-year-old students to help them get the most out of their lesson.

5. All persons regardless of age and sex in view of the camera must be appropriately clothed. This includes shirts as well as shorts/pants/skirts. Cameras will be turned off and you will be sent a message to put on proper attire.

6. Students are muted throughout the class so the instructor can be easily heard.

7. Put the student’s name into Zoom when you’re logging in so our instructors know who you are.

8. Students should be in their taekwondo uniform when taking class.

9. Use the waiting room feature of Zoom once students’ bow in. Students who arrive late will be put into the waiting room and admitted to class when and if we are able to do so.

 

LEADERS PREPARE

While I recognize the seriousness of this virus, I also recognize that remaining physically fit is an important way to ensure a healthy immune system.

Further, I believe that in frightening times, it is important for kids to maintain as much consistency as possible, within reason.

My goal is to employ practices that reduce risk while focusing on educating our students with empathy and compassion so they can balance their emotions with logic and information.

Your children are going to follow your lead.

Make sure it’s one to follow.

Thank you for your cooperation.

We are hoping that everyone will do their part as we take every measure to keep our school a safe and clean environment.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
