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.

Weekly Update September 3-6

 

SKILLS STRIPE FOR THE WEEK

On Tuesday and Wednesday, students will have a shot at earning their GREENstripe:

Skillz (most of our 4 1/2 – 6-year-olds): Kicking

Taekwondo (most of our 7-year-olds and up):Kicks

 

Thursday and Friday, students will have a shot at earning their BLUE stripe:

Skillz (most of our 4 1/2 – 6-year-olds): Control

Taekwondo (most of our 7-year-olds and up): Technique

 

Taekwondo students can also earn their black and purple/rainbow stripes every day up until testing.

Our black and purple/rainbow stripes for students in the taekwondo program are based upon memorization of material and the use of their knowledge of that material.

The black stripe is earned when white, yellow, orange and senior orange students can perform, without assistance, all of their required one-steps. Students who are green belts and higher ranks earn this stripe for sparring at a rank-appropriate level.

The purple/rainbow stripes are a two-part stripe for taekwondo students. Students earn the purple stripe when they can perform, without any assistance, half of their form for the testing cycle. They earn their rainbow stripe when they can do the same through the entire form.

Once we introduce these stripes in each testing cycle, students have a chance to earn them every day from introduction until the last class before testing.

With our purple/rainbow stripe, we test students before forms instruction in class. We do this because we want students to have a firm grasp of the material so they’re ready to perform at testing. Once we begin instruction on forms, they cannot earn a stripe for that day. Additionally, if students are observed watching other students and/or instructors while performing their form without assistance, they will not be able to earn a stripe that day as well. This is all done to ensure students are ready for testing.

 

FORMS FOR THIS TESTING CYCLE –

Students NOT attending the TA Fall National Tournament in Orlando are assigned the following forms for this testing cycle:

Skillz – Chon-Ji

TKD White Belts – Ki-Bon

TKD Yellow/Orange Belts – Do-San

TKD Intermediate Belt Ranks – Do-San (yes, this is correct)

TKD Advanced Belt Ranks – Jun-Gun

TKD Black Belts – As assigned by Taekwondo America

 

SEPTEMBER CALENDAR NOW OUT

Our calendar of events and skill stripe schedule is out for this month! You can find in in our closed Facebook group, on our website, and on the viewing walls at the school. You can also download a PDF copy here.

 

SCHOOL POLICIES REMINDER

With many of our students returning from a break over the summer, we thought it would be a good time for all students and their families to review our school policies. You can find them right here.

A few to note:

Students who arrive more than 10 minutes late will not be allowed to enter the class.

Students MUST be in uniform. Uniforms include our formal white taekwondo pants and jacket. Uniforms may also be our colored taekwondo pants and a Fort Bend TaeKwonDo, Taekwondo America, or another Taekwondo America school t-shirt. Students not in uniform will not be allowed to enter class.
