Tae Kwon-Do (ages 5-adult)

Tae Kwon-Do is ongoing. You can start at any time.  

Tae Kwon-Do is an ancient Korean Martial Art that increases coordination, sharpens alertness, strengthens the body and develops respect with regard to all others, as well as being a practical means of self-defense. Tae Kwon-Do offers a blend of the physical and mental challenges that the body needs. The Academy of Korean Martial Arts Tae Kwon-Do Program in partnership with the YWCA Black Hawk County offers classes for individuals from age 4-adult. The focus of this Tae Kwon-Do Program is not only the physical aspects of Tae Kwon-Do, but it also teaches the philosophy behind the development of the art.

The YWCA is excited to have Grand Master Francis Moore leading the Tae Kwon-Do. Grand Master Francis Moore is a 9th Degree Black Belt! Grand Master Moore has been practicing Tae Kwon-Do  for more than 49 years and is a certified tournament ring judge and referee.


Classes are offered three days a week, Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday evenings from 5:30-7:30. Participants are divided into two different groups according to their belt color/level. 5:30-6:30pm is the beginning group with white, orange, or yellow belts. 6:30-7:30pm is the advanced group with green belts and up.


Visit your first class free!  Try Tae Kwon-Do and meet Master Moore.

Cost: $44.00 per month for members and $80.00 per month for non-members
