United States Taekwondo in Buda, TX is the only martial arts school in the area whose Master Instructor also has a Masters Degree in Education. James Lockett brings the rare combination of 10-years of teaching in the public school system with 20-years of teaching taekwondo for children and adults.
Most people associate martial arts with self-defense. But, you might be surprised at the wide range of harmful issues the martial arts protect against.
Defense Against Violence
Daily headlines remind us of how common violent attacks are in our daily lives.
Defense Against Negative Influences
Martial artists develop a positive mental outlook on life.
Defense Against Quitting
Students learn how to create goals and follow through without quitting.
Defense Against Mediocrity
The Black Belt Attitude (BBA) is a commitment to excellence in all areas of life. The BBA question is, “How would a black belt do this? How would a black belt study in school? What kind of job would a black belt do?”
The BBA creates a personal life standard that motivates our students to live out their full potential.
Defense Against an Unhealthy Lifestyle
Each class is a cross-training workout that students hardly notice. Because the martial arts is exciting to learn, students focus more on the techniques than the exercise. In short, students are getting in great shape doing what they enjoy.
Defense Against Distraction
Focus is like a muscle. It has to be exercised or it will weaken. Our students develop Black Belt Focus and that helps at school, on the job, and at home.
Go To Center
We are proud that our Martial Arts school has become a “go to” center of learning and growth for children and teenagers in our area. At USTKD, our goal is simple. Provide the best instruction, leadership, and guidance possible for your child.
How Do We Do It?
Though we uphold the martial arts traditions of respect, courtesy, and self-discipline, we are forward-thinking and action-oriented and stay on the cutting edge of martial arts instruction.
Though we are professional instructors, we see ourselves as lifelong students. That’s why we are proud members of the Martial Arts Teacher’s Association (MATA). MATA helps to keep us on the latest developments on teaching a strong, safe, and professional program.
Our focus on success for your child is second to none. We work hard and expect our students to do so as well. We believe children have a lot more in them than they know. Our mission is to help them realize their full potential physically and mentally.
