Martial Arts

Develop your full potential – on and off the mat

The Renaud Center’s Martial Arts program accommodates both adults and kids in a structured, disciplined environment. The program focuses on the traditional Korean form of Tae Kwon Do known as Chung Do Kwan. All students begin at the “no-belt” level. Students progress through a series of techniques and belts at their own pace and will not necessarily test each session. To learn more about the Martial Arts program, please call 636-474-2REC (2732).

If you are interested in watching one of the classes to see if it is something your child may be interested in, you may do so the last week of the session.

Tae Kwon Do

This Martial Arts program is based on the traditional Korean form of Tae Kwon Do known as Chung Do Kwan. This style is based on explosive movements, devastating power and self-discipline. All students who enter the program begin training at the “no belt” level. After learning the eight basics and the first form they will be invited to test for the white belt. Prior to the black belt exam, students will progress through a series of techniques and belts. Testing will occur the ninth week of the session. Because each student progresses at his or her own pace, testing will be at the discretion of the instructor.

For more information, please contact Amy at 636-474-8120 or [email protected].

Tae Kwon Do classes are available for ages 3–16.

Self Defense

Whatever your age, fitness level or size, the techniques will make you feel empowered, capable of defending and freeing yourself, and more aware of your surroundings and possible unseen dangers. Valuable lessons include awareness training, practical ways to quickly defend yourself and disable an attacker, an attacker’s vulnerable points, basic holds, releases, strikes, and basic ground and weapon defense. Practical scenario drills will be used. The techniques will be demonstrated by a black belt self-defense instructor. Students will practice both one-on-one and in groups.
