I had started Taekwondo about four years ago. It was the best decision to make for my life when. The first place i took a look at was Changs so I can not say that it is the best place i've seen when looking for a place to learn, but with my experience at Chang’s Taekwondo, I really do believe it is the best place to go. Yes it is obvious the you will learn to fight, but the thing is that when you join, you become part of a great family. I’ll admit I use to be bullied, and I never had a very high self-esteem, but joining taekwondo, they had accepted me for who I was, and they had never turned their backs on me even when I was at my utter worst. I was not the only one there who had been bullied so the others would understand. We all grew together as a team, and in class we all learned to push each other to do better. After a while, I finally started to push myself harder to get better at the sport. I got better at it, but as I got better and better, I began to gain pride for myself and feel good I was accomplishing something. Any person can go learn to fight, but what you learn in this school is self discipline. Then tenets of Taekwondo are courtesy, integrity, perseverance, self control, and indomitable spirit. Taekwondo would teach us to put these concepts into our lives so we can become better people. It would encourage us to do better outside of taekwondo. You can be serious in taekwondo, then go out and be very disrespectful, but we are trained not to do that, we are trained to think about others. Master Roger is a truly amazing master. Yes he cares about students, but he cares about everyone else as well. Master Roger loves to give back to the community and that amazes me. Not many people would do much, but master Roger dedicates his time to help everyone else. This would be the type of person i would like to be one day. Over all, the family I had joined with at Taekwodo, had the closest most important people in my life. I recomend everyone to at least give any Chang schools a try.

Chang's Taekwondo is definitely one of the most competitive teams I've trained with in the Chicago area. It is also a great family environment. So, whether you're training to be on the U.S national team, learn self-defense or just trying to get a good work out Chang's is the place to be. During the time I trained here, it definitely felt like a family to me. Especially during the intensive 2 week training where we ate, slept, trained and basically lived together. Overall, it was a great experience and I got to compete on national level tournaments with the Chang's team. Highly recommend for all!

Master Roger and Instructor Justin are wonderful people who care for the children a great deal. They know how to speak to the children and ensure that they are always being the best they can be inside the facility and at home. Since my daughter has been going, there has been significant improvement in her listening skills. She loves going there and always looks forward to it.

Chang's Taekwondo helps develop a WELL-ROUNDED individual in each of their students because they don't only emphasize on the physical development but that in each of their sessions they are being asked about their achievements in school, important points about their health, values that they should practice, their relationship with peers, families, and elders, and their well being. They deal with physical, emotional, social and mental aspect. Master Roger is very impressive by following up through emails and text messages if the goal that my son AJ have set is being achieved.

Our son joined Chang's Taekwando a week shy of his 3rd birthday. There are quite a few martial arts facilities closer to us, but we decided to stick with Chang's Taekwando after a successful free trail & seeing first hand that the honor, respect, patience and professionalism are second to none. My husband and I immediately felt the connection our son had with the instructors who were very welcoming; it was no turning back from there. Since joining ~7 months ago, he's already shown great progress in his confidence, independence and leadership. If you're looking for true martial arts proficiency, taught in a warm conducive environment, while surrounded by caring instructors and a great group of fellow students you're child will have lasting friendships with - Chang's Taekwando & Fitness Center will provide what you're looking for.

Chang’s TKD was a no brainer for us. Having visited a few of the dojangs in the area, we were greeted with the most warm and professional demeanor, not only by the owner but by the junior leaders and students as well.
Clearly the training doesn’t end with the forms and athletic abilities of these kids, but the discipline and respect they have picked up from this place is remarkable.
We have seen so much growth in our son in just 5 months.

We are enthusiastic to continue to see Chang’s TKD grow because they are developing and bringing out strong, confident, courteous personalities that really embody the Tenets of Taekwondo.

Does Your Child Need A Supportive, Educational, and Fun Activity?

Learning Martial Arts Teaches Young Kids Life Skills While They Have Fun

Young children are curious and active – and they sometimes have difficulty learning to control their bodies and their behavior. They crave structure and thrive in an environment that’s supportive, educational, and fun.

Does your young child

struggle with these things?

They struggle to maintain control of their movements and may be unintentionally destructive.

They find it difficult to focus on a task or to see it through to the end.

They have a hard time sharing their belongings and getting along with other kids.

Parenting young children is a real challenge.

You must balance their natural inquisitiveness and high energy with trying to teach them the basic skills they need for school and life.

Discipline, sharing, and self-control are all things they need to learn to be successful.

The ideal setting is one that’s got some structure but works with kids at their current developmental level. If they have fun while they’re learning, they’ll be more likely to retain those lessons and learn the skills they need.

Results and growth with every class!

Studying martial arts is ideal for young children. It provides them with an outlet for their energy. But, it also teaches them about respect, discipline, and other core values that will go with them beyond the dojo. Junior martial arts classes teach kids to control their movements and behavior, and they’ll learn social skills and interaction at the same time.

Studying Martial Arts Builds Physical Coordination and Control

Young children who learn martial arts find out quickly that each movement must be intentional. They learn to control their movements to the best of their ability.

They also practice hand-eye coordination and learn about their bodies. That means they’ll be less likely to be unintentionally destructive.

Young Martial Arts Students Learn How to Focus

Getting young kids to pay attention can feel like an impossible task. The structure of our martial arts classes shows kids the importance of focus and teaches them by having them apply it to easily-achievable tasks.

The focus they learn in the dojo is something they’ll take home – and into the classroom. That’s why kids who study martial arts tend to be good students, too.

Martial Arts Helps Kids Learn to Deal with Frustration

Martial arts instruction requires students to pursue goals to earn new belts. Young kids can easily become frustrated when they don’t get what they want, but studying martial arts helps them learn the power of persistence.

The physical activity in our classes also helps kids manage stress and anxiety by allowing them to burn it off in a safe and constructive way.

Kids Who Study Martial Arts Learn Good Sportsmanship

Losing is not anybody’s idea of fun, but we all need to learn how to accept a defeat gracefully and move on. We teach students that losing is part of life – and it’s what you do after you lose that tells people who you are.

Even though martial arts is an individual sport, we cultivate an environment of supportive teamwork where students root for one another.

FAQs

My child still has temper tantrums and I’m worried about how they’ll behave in school. Can studying martial arts help?

Yes, it can. We help children learn the importance of emotional control and respect for others. These are lessons that will help them in the classroom, too.

Will studying martial arts help my child learn how to interact with others and share?

Yes. Even though studying martial arts is an individual pursuit, we teach kids to learn in a collaborative environment with an emphasis on sharing, cooperation, and teamwork.

My child zones out in class and misses important instructions. Can taking martial arts classes help them do a better job of focusing?

Yes. Part of martial arts training is teaching kids to be mindful of themselves and their surroundings. They must focus to succeed in class, and once they learn to do it, they’ll be able to do the same thing at school.

My child is out of control physically, and can be very destructive. How will studying martial arts help?

Martial arts instruction focuses on hand-eye coordination, control, and strength. As kids learn basic moves and then advance, they learn how to control their bodies and movements.

My child gives up easily when frustrated. I want them to learn persistence. Can your classes help?

Yes. It’s common for students to require more than one attempt to earn a new belt. We teach them that trying is the most important thing – and that persistence pays off.

My child is disrespectful to me and to other caregivers. How can studying martial arts change that?

Respect is at the core of everything we do in the dojo. Kids who study martial arts must respect their instructors and fellow students, and we find that they learn to respect parents, teachers, caregivers, and siblings at the same time.
