See What Our Gilbert Tae Kwan Do Parents are Saying
We have been with Sandoval karate for the last 18 months and returned after about 4 years leave. My son tried karate for about 2 years then tried other interests, but he came back to Sandoval after trying a different studio, Sandoval runs a great studio, his Staff is courteous and has an interest in all the students. They are energetic and driven to get the students to excel. They focus on the basics then drive them to advanced skills. We are so happy to be in the Sandoval family
Sandoval Freestyle Karate is just as the 5 stars states… AS GOOD AS IT GETS! I have 2 children attending the studio, ages 9 and 6, and we have been attending 2x a week for the last 9 months. My children have had to endure a tremendous amount of stressors in their childhoods and I really wanted them to have an outlet, but I never could have imagined all the amazing things this studio has done for my precious boys. Not only are their plenty of instructors…
Wow! I have to say 2011/12 has been very good years for the Sandoval’s. They definitely deserve an upgrade from 4 stars to 5 stars. I’ve watched them grow from the last time I wrote my review, from moving their main school to a new location in Gilbert to opening a brand new 2nd location in Chandler. They have also become very involved in the Arizona tournament circuit, even running their own tournament, allowing students to grow by matching their skills against other schools.
Lessons Our Gilbert Taekwondo Students Learn
What Will I Get Out of Taking Taekwondo Lessons?
Sandoval Freestyle Karate teaches taekwondo lessons to students of all ages and skill levels in Gilbert, AZ. Our students are elementary students, teens, college students, and adults. Taekwondo classes held at SFK include lessons on striking and attacking an opponent and defending an attack, plus stretching exercises, cardiovascular workouts, and balance and muscle strength training are a regular part of our workout regimen. Our Taekwondo school in Gilbert teaches students to improve upon their physical attributes, mental focus, and natural instincts when it comes time to fight back.
How Do Your Taekwondo Classes Work?
Our classes are divided into age groups and by belt level. Students start by first achieving their white belt and progressively work towards becoming an official member of the Sandoval Freestyle Karate Black Belt Team. In order to test for belt advancement, students must learn specific forms, katas, and self-defense moves based on their skill level. Advanced belts must also learn to use weapons, such as the staff, nunchucks, kamas, sais, Eskrima sticks, and sword.
What are Some of the Benefits of Being Able to Do Taekwondo?
For decades, it has been perfect for cultivating inner strength, endurance, and learning defensive skills. The belief of taekwondo is the unification of mind, body, and sprit. Learning taekwondo is not easy, and to succeed, a positive and determined attitude giving a full effort of your physical ability is needed.
In Preparation for Taking Each Class Students Throughly Stretch Out
One of the most necessary, but often disliked, steps of martial arts is stretching. We all want to be naturally limber and our limbs flexible without having to stretch-out. However, this simply is not how our bodies work, especially the older we get. So be sure to properly stretch before any strenuous exercise. In taekwondo stretching will help you to kick higher, give you an increased range of motion, and improve accuracy with speed.
