Congratulations to Our Graduating Students!

Last Friday Better Families hosted another successful graduation ceremony. Every month the MiamiTaeKwonDo school hosts a graduation ceremony for students graduating from one belt to the next. Students work really hard in orer to graduate to the next belts. Miami Tae Kwon Do students attend classes 2-3 times a week, sometimes more often. The martial arts students are then tested to earn stripes. Each stripe represents a set of techniques that a student has learned. After completing all the stripes, a student is then qualified to start the graduation process.

One last step that Better Families requires is a form fill out by both parents and teachers. This form is to ensure that students are doing a great job at home and in the classroom. Miami Tae Kwon Do school wants their students to be successful in the dojo, at home and in the classroom. Better Families is all about bettering the lives of students and their families. Once a student has earned their entire stripe along with the form filled out with positive remarks, the graduation process begins. At a date is set on a Friday night so that family and friends can attend. This is done so that students can show everyone they have learned throughout the weeks.

Ceremony provides a show with graduating students performing along with the instructors. Graduation event is a wonderful opportunity for family and friends to interact with instructors. Better Families instructors welcome any questions about the Miami TaeKwonDo school. The recent graduation was no different than any other as everyone had a great time. Graduation is about celebrating an accomplishment the student as made with many more to come. Be sure to join us next month when we graduate another set a wonderful students.

Get Sparring Gear from Better Families and Participate in Our Sparring Days

When many people think of martial arts, the first thing that comes to their mind is fighting. Many martial arts schools do not encourage fighting as their skill set is supposed to be for self-defense. Better Families Through Tae Kwon Do is a firm believer that martial arts should only be used for self-defense. Practice is necessary for everything, even for fighting. One way students can practice fighting is through sparring. Sparring is fighting in a controlled environment with gear to protect you from serious damage. Miami Tae Kwon Do school holds sparring days throughout the week.

Days in which students are sparring are on Wednesday and Thursday also known as “B” days. These days’ students bring their sparring gears in order to participate in the activity. It’s important to have your gear ready in order to be involved with sparring. Without your gear, students are not permitted to take part in sparring. Students can purchase sparring gear directly from Better Families as they conveniently provide a pro shop at the school. If for whatever reason the right size is not available, Tae Kwon Do school will order the proper gear for that student.

Miami Tae Kwon Do sparring has levels of speed and intensity in which the students go. There is half speed, three quarter speed and full speed when sparring. It’s important to have levels of speed so that students can pace themselves. Pacing speeds of fighting creates control and understanding for what they are doing. Sparring practice creates experience for students in a fighting situation. More experience a student has with sparring, the better off they are in a fighting situation. So start today and get your sparring gear from Better Families and participate in our sparring days.
