Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is your class schedule? 

As with many questions, the answer is that it depends. Mainly, it depends on the age of the student, the skill of the student, and other factors. Please call us at (813) 991-6565 or fill out the form to the right in order to get more complete information based on your particular circumstances. Our classes are at very flexible times to serve you in the best way possible.

  • What are your Tae Kwon Do classes typically like? 

 

When a child comes into the school, they bow to Grandmaster Lee and Master Vahid. When the class starts, Master Vahid or another black belt will lead the class in stretches and a warmup. These exercises are always presented in a fun way because your child should be learning but having fun at the same time. During the rest of the class, there is a always a mixture of different practices to increase the student’s skills. The class is always ended with a fun game or some other fun activity. We always make sure that the class is fun and exciting!

  • Do you offer an after-school program? 

 

No, we don’t. We prefer to concentrate fully on Tae Kwon Do, not daycare. We are purely a Tae Kwon Do school, and we are experts in that. However, our classes may offer a solution for you so call us at (813) 991-6565 to see what we may be able to do to help.

  • What are the benefits of learning martial arts? 

 

Students take martial arts classes for a variety of reasons. No matter what your reason for joining, there are many benefits that you and your children will see:

  • You or your child will have fun

  • Improved self-confidence

  • Improved health, balance, and coordination

  • Improved awareness of your body’s limitations

  • Reduced stress and anxiety

  • Did we mention tae kwon do is fun?

  • Why should I choose U.S. Taekwondo? ​

 

Simply put, we are the best and most fun martial arts in New Tampa and Wesley Chapel. There are a lot of martial art choices in New Tampa and Wesley Chapel, but none have as much experience teaching kids and adults. No martial arts school locally has a Grandmaster and a Master overseeing the school to insure that you and your kids get the best training in the most fun way!

  • How much do martial arts classes cost? ​​

 

If you value a focused martial arts program for you and your family where the owner also teaches every class imparting his years of knowledge to you and your children, then we are most likely the right fit for you and your family.If you are looking for the lowest-cost martial arts school around, we’re not it. Along with low cost, you also get a low value and a low quality of teaching. However, we are not the most expensive school around either. Depending on certain factors, our monthly cost fluctuates. In order to meet your needs, give us a call or stop by and we can see which options are right for you and your family. We never put any pressure on you to sign up. If you like Tae Kwon Do, you will like us. We never use any heavy-handed sales techniques to get you to sign up and we’re proud of it!

  •  Do I or my child need to be in shape to start? 

 

No! Our classes are designed to get you or your child in shape whether you are a beginner at working out, or you already consider yourself or your child in shape. In time, you and your child’s strength, balance, and coordination will be greatly improved, no matter what the overall fitness level is currently.

  • What's the difference Tae Kwon Do, Karate, Kung Fu and other martial arts? 

 

We are often asked what the difference between Tae Kwon Do, Karate, and Kung Fu. The answer is: it depends. The main, obvious difference is that they each have different countries of origin. Tae Kwon Do comes from Korea, Karate comes from Japan, and Kung Fu comes from China. From the outside looking in, you may not be able to see any differences between the martial arts. One of the reasons for that is there are martial arts schools that put up a sign saying “Karate” but they just do a mash up of anything that they like. This can make it hard to learn how to tell the difference. Tae Kwon Do is sometimes called the “kicking martial art”. While it’s true that Tae Kwon Do emphasizes kicks and jumping, it offers so much more and it’s not just kicking. Like with any martial arts school, the teacher will determine what you learn and some teachers emphasize one aspect over the other. Or they’ll make a large effort to be well-rounded. To find out if you will like what we teach, contact us or fill out the form on the right today!

  • How long does it take to get a black belt?

 

Unfortunately, that’s an impossible question to answer! It depends on many factors: the student’s drive, the student’s dedication, how prepared the student is, how often the student is able to come, etc. Some people can get a black belt in a few years but it all depends. More important than getting the black belt is the journey to get the black belt. If you and your child aren’t having fun on your way to black belt, then it doesn’t matter how long it takes. That’s why we make things fun!

  • Will martial arts make my child aggressive? 

 

Absolutely not! Tae Kwon Do is not about beating people up, it is about self-defense. Students are taught the values and tenets of Tae Kwon Do, which always includes respect to themselves and to others. Even though Tae Kwon Do looks violent from the outside looking in, it is really about learning to defend yourself without ever fighting. Furthermore, any aggression that a student brings into the program when they start usually disappears after a few weeks because they have a new outlet to get their aggression out in a safe and fun way.

  • My child is not athletic. Will he or she have problems in class? 

 

Children who don’t like or find success in team sports often come to martial arts and they end up loving it. That’s because students progress at their own pace in a fun, encouraging environment. Team sports can hurt the self-esteem of children who aren’t very athletic, but with martial arts, everyone is greatly encouraged regardless of his or her athletic level.

  •  Can parents stay to watch their children in class? 

 

Of course! We warn you though: the more that you stay to watch your child in their class, the more that you’re going to want to join in!

  • Am I too old to start? 

 

No! We have students in their 40s and 50s. Like the old saying goes, you’re only as old as you feel!

  • Is my son or daughter too young to start? 

 

​Generally, we take students as young as four years old. Sometimes, a four year old may not be ready for our program, so if that’s the case, we’ll tell you right away. We always want to make sure we are the perfect fit for you and your family.

  • How safe are your classes? 

 

​Very safe! Every class is taught by our main instructor, Master Vahid, and overseen by Grandmaster Lee. They have had years of experience training and teaching Tae Kwon Do, and they know the methods and techniques to minimize the chance that you and your children won’t be injured. While they can’t guarantee your child will be free of injury, they make every effort and take every precaution to make sure your child stays unhurt.
