Youth Program

Our Youth program is specifically designed for children between the ages of 8 and 13.
World Tang Soo Do Association Internationally Certified Black Belt instructors teach all our classes and we promote a safe and healthy learning environment. Some of the benefits of Tang Soo Do:

 • Through the activities and exercises, students will improve their co-ordination and balance;
 • Our classes develop self-discipline that brings out the best in our students so that they may achieve their goals in every aspect of life;
 • Enhancement of their concentration for better academic performance; and
 • A better self-image that instils confidence in their own abilities that helps them to withstand unhealthy peer pressure.

This program is tailored for members older than 14. These classes’ goal is to improve fitness, co-ordination and character. To accommodate your busy schedules, most of these classes are presented during the evening.

Our martial arts program is a great physical and mental workout. It is also a great way to make new friends.

World Karate Kids

The World Karate Kids programs is especially designed for young children from the ages of four to eight and is taught by Internationally Certified World Tang Soo Do Black Belt instructors.

Martial arts can be one of the most rewarding activities for a child as it enhances self-confidence and concentration. We have seen that our program not only leads to the improvement of our students’ school grades, but it is also a great stepping stone for them to excel in all of life’s challenges.

Our World Karate Kids also develop a more positive attitude and enable them to say ‘No’ to unhealthy peer pressure. The World Karate Kids programs consist of the Tiny Tiger Program (ages 4 to 6) and the Little Dragons Program (ages 6 to 8).

You will also see an improvement to your child’s co-ordination as well as their overall fitness, assisting them in all other sport and physical activities. Our program also leads to better self-discipline that is the corner stone to teaching them to take responsibility for their household chores and to take ownership of their homework.

We inspire our students to set goals for themselves by helping them to learn and strive for their next rank. We have seen that our students take these techniques and apply them to their studies at school.

Leadership Weapons

Acceptance into this program is on the sole discretion of Master Amorim

Every class has the few students that shine really brightly. It might be in terms of personality, physical ability, reasoning skills, etc. Whatever the gift, we here at the South African Tang Soo Do academy seek to develop these skills. For this, we offer our Leadership Weapons Program. With this program, we endeavour to develop the Leadership ability in our students. This program builds a foundation for a Leader, by discussing and training qualities such as Social Skills, Teaching Ability, Speaking Skills. Every week, the theme is centred around a certain topic, such as Diligence, Hard Work, Honesty, Integrity, etc.

To aid in this class, weapons are brought in as a teaching tool. This develops their physical technique alongside their mental focus and character growth. Examples of weapons taught are the Korean Staff (Bong), Korean Cane (Ji-Pang-Ee), Wooden, Aluminium (Competition) and Live Swords, Nunchaku, Escrima Sticks, Sai, Sickle (Kama) and the Baton (Tonfa). The classes are designed to be fun as well as educational. The class format varies between lecture-types, debate, team challenges, as well as physical training.

Ranks are awarded according to the student’s progress through the program, which runs for approximately 3 years. 12 ranks in total are awarded. These ranks are separate from the ranks obtained in Tang Soo Do training.
