Threshold Childrens Classes
(5 - 12 yrs)

Threshold Kids is a Taekwon-Do class designed especially for children. The focus of the programme is to develop physical and mental competence, leadership potential and moral values.

Threshold instructors create a learning environment based on both discipline and fun.

"Our focus is to help students develop confidence and inner strength." "My personal philosophy is one of mutual respect between student and instructor. There are rules to be adhered to but at the same time we allow room for students to accept their own challenges, expand possibilities and develop their character." Hayden Breese, Instructor.

Age Range of the Kids Class:

Threshold Kids caters to Children 5-12 yrs. If your child is five years or older contact us for more information. Don't miss this great opportunity.



Beginners Class: Mon, 4:45 – 5:45pm

Threshold Intro classes are designed to help kids try martial arts in a safe, friendly and fun environment. After attending their first class casual students choose a class to attend every week. After about one month kids may be invited to join the school as a member. Existing threshold members may attend one or more of these classes at a reduced rate or for free if invited as an assistant.

Wednesday and Friday, 4:45 – 5:45 pm

Threshold membership classes are designed for those kids who have made a commitment to learn Taekwon-Do. They consist of more experienced students from white belt level through to more senior ranked students.

While Threshold kids are able to progress through an internationally recognized grading system, the learning progress and development through this system varies from child to child. There are three grading's per year and most children will participate in one or more grading's. ITFNZ grading's are conducted by an independent examiner and the qualification is recognized throughout New Zealand and the world. Threshold also offers gradings as intermediate steps between ITFNZ gradings. These are conducted by the Head Instructor.

The First Classes

The trial of the kids class started on Friday the 25th August 2005. In attendance were five new students who participated in balance and strength exercises, focus and discipline techniques, learning basic kicks and leadership training.
