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!

The Hidden Benefits of Martial Arts

There are SO many martial arts schools in the Katy and Richmond area! Do you ever wonder why? Well, martial arts schools do a lot more than just teaching students how to kick and punch. There are actually a LOT of great benefits for kids in martial arts classes! Here are 4 hidden benefits that we hear most often from our parents here at Fort Bend TaeKwonDo.

Hidden Benefit No. 1: “Structured” Physical Activity

Notice we didn’t just say “physical activity”! It is easy for moms/dads to take their kids to the playground and watch them have free time for an hour or so. But not our parents – they have invested in something far more valuable for their kids! Our classes are made with the brain in mind and are therefore structured so that we are able to deliver the most up to date information, in a manner that each age group can retain. So not only are our students getting the physical exercise they need stay fit and healthy; they are getting the intellectual stimulation they need to help them stay sharp at school!

Hidden Benefit No. 2: Socially Positive Stress Relief

There is no doubt that the pressures of school academics and social pressures weigh on our kids, releasing lots of cortisol which is retroactive to leading an emotionally stable lifestyle. This can be seen especially during back to school seasons. But the good news is that even after a stressful or busy day, our students are able to come to our taekwondo classes where we have built a community in which they can feel safe, confident, and free to be themselves. Many students also create friendships here that will last a lifetime as well!

Hidden Benefit No. 3: Powerful Positive Role Models

We are very proud that parents choose us to be positive role models in their children’s lives. We take that seriously – which is why each of our instructors is trained to use the SKILLZ system. SKILLZ allows us to understand each individual physically, intellectually, emotionally, and socially.

Hidden Benefit No. 4: Little “wins” add up

We all want our kids to have huge goals, and to achieve them. At Fort Bend TaeKwonDo, our students learn that each major win is accomplished through smaller victories. Every class, our students work hard to achieve a small goal, which leads up to a bigger goal of earning a new belt rank. This cycle continues to be reinforced and eventually they will know the elation that comes when they have their first black belt tied around their waist. This lesson is valuable beyond words and will help each child for many years in the future.

We hope this has been informational! Please let us know if you have any questions!
