Our programs are equally focused on the art of Tang Soo Do and developing life skills that help students of all ages, backgrounds and abilities. Our nurturing environment fosters a sense of community and helps them become the best version of themselves.
At ROMA, the Little Dragons are our youngest students. Through our martial arts training program, we work with children teaching quality life skills that deliver great results at home, in school, and in the community. Each student progresses at their own pace.
The core of Tang Soo Do training is respect and discipline, two concepts that are often overlooked in our society. In Tang Soo Do, a child learns respect for authority figures, including parents and teachers, as well as respect for himself/herself and others. Students are expected to utilize the rules of the class during their training. The promotion system encourages children to practice and continue training. This disciplined habit of not giving up can eventually be seen in other aspects of a child’s life such as improved schoolwork and the ability to cope better with the demands and challenges of everyday life. Values learned in the dojang (studio) give the student concrete, practical guidelines for their behavior in life.
Our Junior Achievers, like our Little Dragons, learn through martial arts training a number of life skills. The skills not only reinforce the various attributes that are taught in school but enable our students to become leaders. They develop self-confidence, better focus and concentration, as well as develop stronger communication skills. These are important leadership skills that will help them in everything they do. Each student helps to set their own incremental goals. progress at their own pace, and the goals are specific to each individual student.
Just like for our Little Dragons, the core of Tang Soo Do training is respect and discipline. In Tang Soo Do, Junior Achievers being older than Little Dragons work with their instructors to create goals specific to each student and learn leadership skills. Students are expected to make use of the class rules during their training. The promotion system encourages children to practice and continue their training. This disciplined habit of not giving up can eventually be seen in other aspects of a Junior Achiever’s life, such as improved schoolwork and the ability to cope better with the demands of everyday life.
Tang Soo Do encourages courtesy, patience, loyalty, honesty, and self-control—values that are not specifically taught in most Western sports. Values learned in the dojang (studio) give the student concrete, practical guidelines for behavior in his or her life.
For our teens and adults, training in Tang Soo Do provides a full body workout and helps students to become stronger, agile, patient, confident and better at dealing with life challenges. It teaches you to have a “can do” attitude that successful people have.
Through Tang Soo Do training, a student develops both physically and mentally. As we age adults experience a reduction in coordination and have an increase of joint-related issues, including a greater risk of injury due to falls. Our training develops eye/hand coordination, learning of new terminology which helps to develop and strengthen their memory. Better mental and physical health improves self-esteem as well as stress-related aspects of one’s life, such as eating and sleeping habits. Teen and adult students discover self-value and pride as they learn new techniques and achieve a higher rank.
