Martial artists wear colourful belts to indicate their mastery of fighting techniques and their passionate disdain for suspenders. Achieve stylish self-defense strategies with today's Groupon: for $20, you get eight classes and a uniform at Elite Tae Kwon Do Academy in Mount Pearl (a $140 value).
Helmed by chief instructor Chad Nippard, Elite Tae Kwon Do passes on the martial art's traditional techniques during the school's weekly schedule of classes for ages 3 and older. Divided by age and rank, students learn self-discipline, positivity, and how to rock a vibrantly coloured belt in any season. The Little Tigers program begins teaching tiny kickers ages 5–7 tae kwon do basics with an emphasis on focus and on the setting and reaching of goals; kids ages 8–13 continue practicing the value of temperance while building character. Through fitness and the practice of self-defense, the adult program for ages 14 and up trains future masters in the essential ethics of the form. Suited up in an included dobok uniform, students start on the path to a true sense of modesty, an unyielding character, and a high kick with all the strength and agility of a high five.
