American Black Belt Academy has one goal and that is to improve the lives of their students through the physical and mental training of martial arts. ABBA offers classes for all ages and levels. You can even try a class for FREE to see if it is the right fit for your child. It may take longer for American Black Belt Academy students to qualify for their black belts than some newer more contemporary Taekwondo schools require. At ABBAPTC, Master Kang believes all belts are earned at the individual’s pace and are measured by skill and maturity, not a timeline. The amount of time someone spends getting to black belt isn’t standardized but promotion from one black belt to the next is. and it takes years. American Black Belt Academy applies the standards to the levels prior to black belt. ABBAPTC is located at 303 Kelly Dr. #10 , Peachtree City, GA. Below are some different class options:
Warriors Class – ages 7-12 – This class is designed to help your child perform at his or her own pace. In addition to Taekwondo, our students learn to set and achieve their own personal goals. By learning perserverance and taking pride n their accomplishments, students gain greater self-confidence and a positive outlook that extends into every aspect of their lives.
Many people forget that martial arts can also be a path to inner peace. When a martial arts exponent kneels and closes their eyes and then opens them, it means that they have used the time to focus their mind. It is a path to finding inner peace and inner strength.
To register your child or try a free class in the Tiny Warriors or Warriors call, visit www.martialartsptc.com.
