The Taekwon-Do Kids Development Program (TKD Program) is the official children’s programme for the ITF. It is designed for children aged 3 to 7 years old. It teaches basic Taekwon-Do Skills and Coordination Skills as well as Life Skills, Danger Awareness and Character Education. It is great for pre-school children as it teaches them discipline. The children are taught how to listen and to follow instructions.
The programme teaches foundational knowledge of Taekwon-Do and uses a unique blend of principles to provide the best opportunity for the student to develop in a way that will empower them for the rest of their life. The ethos of the program is to provide the student with a mind-set which will help them develop attitudes that promote a harmonious society.
The TKD Program uses a wide range of activities including; games, physical exercises, tasks, role playing, story telling, discussions, problem solving exercises, quizzes and puzzles. It uses a strategic reward system that gives positive encouragement to all students, including the less able, by rewarding them for their development.
Most of the games use a system which ensures that the games become a positive experience for the child which focuses on the developmental aspects of the game instead of the competitive aspect.

The participation at the course is allowed from age 16 and above with a minimum belt requirement of 2nd kup.
