Creative Class / Demo Team
Practice Wednesdays from 5:15-6:00 pm
Taught by Mrs. Brooke Trautwein-Bairos
In this class we will be learning more advanced kicking, weapon & board breaking skills, focusing on speed & precision of technique, acrobatics, showmanship, and more! We will also spend time putting together routines and demonstrations to be performed at different events.
In order to be a part of the Demo Team, there will be certain goals that must be reaching in taekwondo, along with additional commitments & requirements to maintain an active status on the team.
Requirements to try out:
Minimum of Purple Belt or Higher
Must be in Leadership Program
Consistently training a minimum of 2 hours per week
Have an animated personality & be able to perform for an audience
Parents… An Important thing to remember… this is a highly specialized class, and there will be very limited space in the group. This will be an extra time commitment on your behalf as well as your child’s. If your child doesn’t make it onto the team during try outs this fall, I ask that you encourage them to continue working hard, and maybe dedicate more time to their training so they can try out again in the future! We’re looking for dedicated students who take their training seriously and go the EXTRA MILE in martial arts. Please email us before the try outs with any questions! We want this to be a great experience for all of our students!
We will be holding a try out class on Wednesday, August 15th at 5:15 pm, and a secondary try out class on Wednesday, August 22nd at 5:15 pm. Team will be selected and notified by August 24th.
Please come prepared to perform the following:
Your current belt level form (or most recent form from your previous testing)
20-30 second weapon freestyle demonstration
Demonstrate advanced kicking techniques (ex – butterfly kick, “whirly bird”, 360 spin hook, etc.)
Board breaking abilities
**This class will run during the school year, but not during the summer break. Students on the demo team will have attendance requirements for the demo team classes, and for performances. More info will be given out to team members. We’re also looking into getting custom black uniforms for the team and would cost between $100-$150.
Registration fee: $75
Monthly class fee: $40 for Leadership Members / $25 for Legacy Members
