Kihap Martial Arts

(3-12 years old)

Experience the joy of Olympic-style Taekwondo without compromising the roots of traditional martial arts. Nowadays, the world exalts violence and this might have some parents worried about letting their children join martial arts. Taekwondo is more than just kicking and punching. On the contrary, Taekwondo classes by Kihap Martial Arts aim to teach life skills that children can apply.

Kihap Martial Arts aims to focus on developing their students':

Socialization Skills
Physical, Emotional and Mental Growth
Goal Setting
Communication Skills
Respect for self and others
Teamwork and Sportsmanship 

Taekwondo classes will be taught by Kihap's very own chief instructor, Master Joffrey Mejica, a 4th Dan Blackbelt in Taekwondo, a USA Taekwondo coach, referee and judge, a member of the World's Taekwondo Federation and international athlete with experiences of representing the Philippine Team in competitions in Korea, Philippines, and USA.
