Taekwondo classes in Perth

 

Taekwondo classes in Perth

 

Perth’s Premier Academy teaches modern Taekwondo as prescribed by the Kukkiwon and World Taekwondo Federation (the official governing bodies for Taekwondo). Taekwondo is one of the most systematic and scientific traditional martial arts, originating in Korea. It has become a global sport with a huge international following, and an official Olympic sport.

What is Taekwondo?

The Korean word Taekwondo comes from the words Tae, or “foot” or “to step on;” Kwon, which means “fist” or “fight;” and Do refers to a “way,” “art” or “discipline.” The combination of these words embodies the essence of the sport. Essentially, the word Taekwondo means “the way of using all parts of the body to stop fights and help to build a better and more peaceful world.”

Taekwondo is similar many other Oriental martial arts and shares some features with them, particularly those from countries surrounding Korea, like Japan and China. Taekwondo differs from most other oriental martial arts in that it is very dynamic, with active movements that include a huge variety of kicks and footwork. Like most oriental martial arts, Taekwondo shares the principle of physical movements being in harmony with the student’s state of mind, and their life as a whole.

Where can I find Taekwondo training in Perth?

Premier Martial Arts and Fitness Academy has been offering taekwondo training in Perth for over 10 years in its current location, and the Academy’s instructors have been teaching and training in taekwondo in Perth for over 20 years. The Academy offers taekwondo classes seven days a week at its purpose-built, fulltime martial arts centre in Clarkson, located in Perth’s northern suburbs. Students at Premier Academy learn taekwondo kicking and footwork as it is embedded in our Freestyle Mixed Martial Arts system. Our Junior students learn traditional Taekwondo poomsae (patterns or kata) to improve their focus and discipline. Training in Taekwondo poomsae is optional for students in our Teen and Adult programs. Premier Academy also has a very active Sports Taekwondo team, and these students compete successfully in both sparring and poomsae at local, state and national levels.

Our Principal Instructor, Zlatan Jovanov, is a 7th Dan Kukkiwon Black Belt, and is authorised to grade students up to and including 6th Dan. All of our instructors are Kukkiwon-certified, and all of our students are eligible to have their rank recognised by the Kukkiwon. This Kukkiwon certification means that all belts issued are valid and recognised world-wide and our students are able to compete in all sanctioned events.

Benefits of training in Taekwondo at Premier Academy

Building Fitness

A typical taekwondo class at Perth’s Premier Academy involves dynamic punching and kicking drills, technique applications, poomsae (patterns), self-defence and core-strengthening exercises, plus stretches to improve your flexibility. You will find that your stamina and strength will improve dramatically through these active movements. For younger children, learning and practicing their poomsae — specific patterns of defence and attack movements — leads to better motor skills and body control, while also improving focus and concentration. These are not idle claims – they are backed by rigorous scientific studies such as the 2014 study published in Sports Medicine that noted taekwondo athletes demonstrate high peak anaerobic power, flexibility and high dynamic upper- and lower-body strength and good core endurance.

Learning Respect

Respect and honour are the foundation of all martial arts, but especially so in taekwondo classes. You learn to respect the martial arts, the Academy, your fellow students and your teacher. Students are expected to come neatly dressed in a clean uniform and adhere to the rules of the taekwondo training Academy. In your taekwondo classes, you bow to your teacher and also to your fellow students. Higher belt athletes are also shown respect as they have demonstrated the discipline and commitment to achieve their status. You learn to respect them and their commands. Students of taekwondo are also expected to translate this respect for cleanliness, discipline and people of authority outside of the Academy, whether that be at school, work, home or in the wider Perth community.

Practicing Self-Discipline

In addition to building respect for authority, taekwondo training at Perth’s Premier Academy teaches students to respect themselves. As students advance through the belts this achievement builds self-confidence. The discipline required in learning poomsae (patterns) as well as specific punching and kicking techniques builds confidence and mental focus. In children, often grades and behaviour improve as taekwondo training at Premier Martial Arts and Fitness Academy builds their confidence and enhances their attention.

Learning Self Defence

At its core, training in taekwondo is about learning to diffuse situations. The practice is defensive, rather than offensive. What you learn though taekwondo training at Premier Academy can prevent you from becoming a victim in threatening situations. For Perth children, it is critical that they learn to be bully-proof and this is an important component of training in taekwondo at Premier Martial Arts and Fitness Academy. Being aware, but not afraid, of strangers is also a key area of taekwondo classes at the Academy. For adults, the confidence gained from knowing that you have mastered real world self-defence skills though your taekwondo training helps prevent you from becoming another crime statistic.

Increasing Concentration

Training in taekwondo also involves unifying the mind with the body. The concentration required to learn to better control through punching and kicking leads to harmony within your body and mind. When your body works in harmony, you can translate this to the entirety of your life and how you operate in society. The focus required to perform complex moves and combinations, especially in a dynamic manner, gives you the ability to concentrate under pressure. The mental aspect of taekwondo training at Perth’s Premier Academy is undoubtably the most important benefit at student can gain through their martial arts training.

Benefits of Teen Martial Arts Classes

The teen years are a great time to get involved with martial arts classes, especially at Perth’s Premier Academy. This period in a teen’s life, where they are transitioning towards becoming an adult, sees them go through constant changes in education, maturity and growth. It’s a great time to add some structure to their lives plus surround them with positive peers and role models with like-minded goals. At Premier Academy each teen is treated equally and is trained to the best of their own ability and potential. A student is never compared to anyone else. At Premier Martial Arts our instructors are there to guide, instruct and motivate teens to be the best that they can be.

Confidence

Martial arts classes are excellent in developing a teen’s self-esteem and confidence. The self-belief that comes from mastering martial arts techniques and applying them successfully is powerful and will permeate every aspect of your teen’s life. Confident teens are able to resist peer pressure, make better choices and fend off physical and mental bullying. Our Perth-based teens martial arts program will help your teen build their confidence and self-esteem, making them unstoppable!

Improved Study Skills

Martial Arts are designed to train the teen body as well as the teen mind. It teaches teens how to study and to work hard when learning complex techniques. This will soon translate into their schoolwork. Students will learn to apply themselves inside and outside Premier Academy and can expect to start performing better at school as well. Teens learn that they learn better when they get fully involved, whether at school or at Premier Academy.

Respect

Respect is a very important concept we teach in our teen martial arts classes. We teach Perth students to not only respect teachers, authority figures, parents, and grandparents, but in fact to respect everyone. This respect for self and others will have a profound impact on their daily lives and enable them to make a positive contribution in the wider Perth community.

Self Defence

At Premier Martial Arts and Fitness Academy our teens are taught real-world self-defence skills that actually work! For teens, learning to defend themselves if they are physically attacked gives them the confidence and self-belief that enables them to usually avoid these situations before they even happen. Strong, fit and confident teens also make better decisions, resist peer pressure and are able to deal with bullying in a positive manner.

Fitness, Weight Loss and Muscle Gain

At Premier Academy our teens train hard – not because they are forced but because they want to! Our teen classes are packed with a variety of exercises that will burn fat and tone those muscles. Our martial arts classes will enable Perth teens to become strong, fit and flexible. At Premier Academy we actively promote a healthy and balanced lifestyle for our teens!

Anger Management and Stress Relief

Getting angry when something doesn’t go as planned is a natural thing. It’s a human emotion that everyone experiences but is often hardest to control as a teen. When that anger is used in the wrong way or takes control of our actions it often creates bigger problems. We teach teens how to focus that anger into a positive and use it to their advantage! Premier Academy’s Perth martial arts classes for teens will also provide a valuable source of stress relief, allowing teens to deal with the large variety of pressures they are confronted with in teenage life.

Leadership Training

Premier Martial Arts and Fitness Academy seeks to develop and encourage future leaders, one black belt at a time. As a student is working towards earning their black belt, they are also becoming a leader in every aspect of their life, including school, home and other activities. To further foster this development, we also have a specialised Leadership Program where teens are taught the skills needed to help out in martial arts classes.
