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!

Weekly Update – July 22, 2018

SKILLS STRIPE FOR THIS WEEK

Because we have an extra week in this testing cycle, we will be focusing on a different color stripe every day of class. We still have next week for review week, so if your child is missing a stripe and can’t attend class on the day that stripe is being covered this week, they can earn that stripe next week. Here is the schedule for the week:

Monday: Blue Stripe

Tuesday: Green Stripe

Wednesday: Orange Stripe

Thursday: Red Stripe

Friday: Black Stripe

Students in our kids, teen and adult classes will have a shot at earning their black stripe daily up until the last class prior to testing. They will have a shot at earning their purple/rainbow stripe daily from this Wednesday up until the last class prior to testing.

Students will have to correctly perform their one-steps (white through sr. orange belts) without assistance and spar (green belts and higher ranks) at an appropriate rank level in order to earn their black stripe.

Students will have to perform half of their form to earn their purple stripe, and their entire form to earn their rainbow stripe. Students must be able to complete their form without assistance from other students and/or instructors and perform it at an appropriate rank level, in order to earn these stripes. Each day in class, we will count students through their form to determine if they are eligible for these stripes. Once instruction begins, students cannot earn their stripe until the next time they come to class and can perform the form without assistance.

This testing cycle, students will be working on the following forms:

Basic Skillz – Chon-ji

Beginners (white and yellow belts): Ki-Bon

Intermediates (orange – sr. Purple belts): Do-San

Advanced (Blue – Sr. Red belts): Jong- Gun

Black Belts

1st Degree Probationary and Recommended: Gwen-Gae

1st Decided: Poe-Eun

1st Senior: Gae-Baek

2nd Degree: Chong–Jang

2nd Decided:Yoo-Sin

2nd Senior: Ul-Ji

Videos of forms can be found on our student website, fortbendtaekwondo.com under forms. White, Yellow, Orange and Senior Orange Belts can also find videos of one steps on our website. Remember the videos are to supplement class instruction and not replace it.

HOW TO GET IN TOUCH WITH MRS. CHAPMAN

It can be really hard to have a conversation with Mrs. Chapman during class times – so, in order to try to make herself more accessible, she’s set up a Google Voice number so you can text message her! The number is 281-454-3265. She will answer as time permits during classes. Please be sure to include your name and/or your student’s name when texting, so she knows who she is talking to. She will do her best to be at the desk for a few minutes before and after each class as well.
