Specific training programs are catered to suit the degree of knowledge and maturity of each member. At TAYA TAEKWONDO (Taekwondo Academy for Young Athletes), we aim to provide a solid foundation in basic movements as a first step in learning Taekwondo in all its spectrum.

Each training session begins with a proper warm up and conditioning exercises and ends with cool down and relaxation of mind and body through a quick meditation or team shoulder-back message at the end of each session.
