Why Southbury Taekwon-do?

Southbury Taekwon-do teaches Taekwon-do, a Korean unarmed art of self-defense which provides the student many physical benefits at an affordable price.

Participants learn sparring techniques, blocking and striking, age-appropriate self-defense, situational awareness, and much more. For kids, Taekwon-do helps them learn respect for themselves and for others, heightens concentration, and increases self-discipline and self-restraint. Adults gain improved health, better balance and flexibility, and personal protection. Southbury Taekwon-do offers different levels of classes to provide the most-appropriate lessons for every student: one class for beginner students, one for advanced students, and a special class for very young children.

Classes are offered though the Southbury Parks & Recreation department by award-winning black belts. As a town program, using the town's facilities and resources, students pay only $145 a semester for the first family member and $120 for each additional family member — about 1/3 of some private martial arts schools.

Getting Started

It is very easy to get started with the program.

First of all, register for the class use the town's online registration portal or in-person at the Parks & Recreation Office. Taekwon-do classes are listed under 'Sports & Fitness'.

Next, order a uniform and protective gear. The equipment page offers a number of recommendations for where to get these. Everyone should get a uniform, mouthguard, gloves, and foot pads. If you are still waiting for these items to arrive by the time classes start, just come in loose, comfortable clothes, such as a t-shirt and sweats.

If you have a Facebook account, like our page so you can more-easily get notices and other helpful information.

Show up! At your first class, one of our instructors will give an introduction and walk through how classes take place.
