Chief instructor Frank Galindo III, a fifth dan black belt since 2005, exposes students to a curriculum that emphasizes the physical as well as the mental aspects of martial-arts training. Martial-arts conditioning classes meet for one-hour sessions that aim to boost stamina through a regimen of stretching, cardio, balance drills, strengthening exercises, and staring contests. Tae kwon do and judo classes meet several times a week to introduce practical self-defense concepts, improve students' flexibility and strength, and instruct them in the central tenets of tae kwon do, as well as teach them the intricacy of judo's secret handshake.
Uniforms are not required for Groupon holders, but apprentice garb is available for purchase from Southwest TaeKwon-Do & Martial Arts Studio.
