I am writing this letter in regards to Colorado Taekwondo Demonstrations. They performed an assembly for us at Carmody Middle School with commitment and dedication. We brought them in to address our student body in regards to bullying, discipline, and commitment. They brought over 40 of their students and demonstrated and discussed the positive attributes of making good decisions.
Our students were engaged and left the assembly feeling empowered by their presentation. The high flying board breaking demonstrations were truly impressive. Colorado Taekwondo was professional in every aspect of my dealings with them. I felt our students took away a lifelong lesson as well as a possible avenue to teach them how to be a positive productive member of our society.
It is with great pleasure that I recommend the Colorado Taekwondo Demonstration to any organization that is considering using their staff. Colorado Taekwondo Demonstrations will exceed or meet any expectations you might have. If I can be of any further assistance in regards to their recommendation do not hesitate to contact me.
Carmody Middle School
by Terry Copper, Oberon Middle School Teacher
Not an easy task! However, we found the secret at Oberon Middle School. Take your entire student body, escort them to the gym and put them in front of a demonstration from the Colorado Taekwondo Institute. An instant hush will pierce through the crowd of teenagers as 75 taekwondo students and instructors burst onto the gym floor and start their dynamic routine.
Have you ever had a 4th degree black belt come within millimeters of your nose with a sidekick? Pretty exhilarating! This nonstop action includes kicking and punching demonstrations, patterned movements set to music, interaction with the crowd, a high school black belt defending herself against another black belt instructor posing as a knife wielding custodian. The crowd will also witness a 3rd degree black belt attempt to jump over the principal, a couple teachers, and a few wary students, and break boards before landing on the ground. All the while, there is a discussion on the importance of spirit, work ethic, trust and self-control.
And then, just as you look up and realize you are in a packed gym with 750 students and can still hear that infamous pin-drop, the crowd will erupt in applause and the hour will be over. No more silent teenagers. They will head back to their classes and continue with their daily routine. You will be impressed. Within the blink of an eye this demonstration will be over and you, too, will long for the day when you can hold the attention of 750 teenagers for an hour.
