Wolves Taekwondo Year
Wolves Taekwondo Club offers classes43 weeks of the year. Our Taekwondoyear is divided into four terms. The Taekwondo term fee for one class per week (43 classes) is $150 per student. The term fee of $150 is then broken down to a per month fee of $50. This method of charging amonthly fee instead of a term fee every three months was introduced to reduce large sums of money being debited from the students account every three months ( term duration). Therefore for the newer students this will answer the question of do we still pay during school holidays.
Insurance Renewal 2017
To all students and parents, congratulations to all students and parents who supported us in 2016 with our focus on safety. It was great to see most students wearing pads and safety gear. Thank you to the Parents and Carers for supplying the protective gear and also to the students for remembering to wear them each week.
Please note ALL Insurance renewals are due as from 1 February 2017. All students must be insured to participate in any Wolves Taekwondo classes and events.
Please return your insurance form and fee by 10 February 2017.

Building Self Esteem
As a Master, I always encourage the martial arts student to follow three basic rules when they are trying build their confident and self esteem:
1. Think you can
2. Train as much as you can
3. Ultimately prove you can
Through the positive lessons offered at our martial arts school, students start to believe in themselves. In the past where others dictated their destiny, in the future they will slowly guide themselves in the direction they want to go. Building a healthy self-esteem, is like giving you a life long gift.
You will never give up on yourself again.
