Martial Arts

Our Martial Arts program utilizes the International Tae Kwon Do curriculum combined with modern teaching methods to provide the ultimate martial arts experience for your child!

Martial Arts promotes respect, self-discipline, body awareness and confidence in students of all ages and is an excellent tool for lifelong success. Our classes are taught by experienced instructors with many years of training and teaching, both in martial arts and child development studies.

Belt Evaluations

Belt Evaluations will take place every three months during the season, with student eligibility based on attendance, attitude, and overall readiness.

Belt evaluations give students a tangible demonstration of their skill level, demonstrate their areas of strengths and improvement, and assist in goal setting for their next stage. Students grow in confidence when they are able to present their learning, and resiliency when they have to work through challenges. Belt evaluations focus on creating lifelong learners and instilling the tenants of martial arts that create community members who can protect themselves and others.

It is mandatory that all students take at least two belt evaluations during the season. Families will have the option of having the eval done in class, or register for a timeslot on the weekend. All registered families will be contacted a minimum of 2 weeks prior to evals with further details.

All students enrolled in the program will be billed $49.99 on November 1, 2021 & February 1, 2022. If a student starts later in the season or elects to do a third belt evaluation, the billing day is May 1, 2022. If a student does not pass their belt evaluation, they will retake the evaluation when they have completed the necessary corrections, as well as completed a 1:1 private lesson during class time to work on their skill set. There is no charge for re-evaluations.

  • Evaluation 1: November 13-14
  • Evaluation 2: February 26-27
  • Evaluation 3: May 28-29
Safe Sparring

Sparring practice allows students to engage with the drills they practice, to increase their fitness levels, and develop increased comfort with movement and blocking which are vital to effective self-defense.

Sparring practice follows set rules, with partners working to better each other, rather than 'win'. A strong emphasis is placed on communication and teamwork, while practicing strength, control, and understanding of different ability levels.

All students taking part in sparring must have all 'safe sparring gear' with them (including a mouthguard) for everyone's safety and sanitary consideration. A “Safe Sparring Package” can be purchased through the program Director at The Dream Centre. Our program Director will connect with you as to when your child is eligible to participate in safe sparring training. Pricing for this package will be determined based on a child’s specific needs and skill level.
