Find a new life balance with Tae Kwon Do

Kevin PowellCity, Parks & Recreation

Lawrence Parks and Recreation Department is currently accepting registration for its summer Tae Kwon Do program.

Tae Kwon Do will help participants eight years-old and older develop control, balance and power through the practice of Tae Kwon Do form and one-step sparring. As participants mature in the art, they gain more than the ability to kick and punch. With improved coordination and reflexes, increased self-confidence, self-discipline and physical conditioning, students gain a greater respect for themselves, fellow students and people in society as a whole.

A class for those eight years-old to 12 years-old is offered 6:45-7:45 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays, June 4-August 22 and a class for those 13 years-old and older is offered 7:50-9:05 p.m., Tuesdays and Thursdays, June 4-August 22. Both classes will be held at East Lawrence Recreation Center, 1245 E. 15th St. Cost is $87 per student.
