Nearly 50 years of experience have shown us that children ages 6 and older are best equipped to focus and advance through GFTKD’s curriculum in a timely fashion.  Indicators of a child’s readiness include a solid 20 minute attention span and a good command of left and right.  Keep in mind, we never discourage any child from trying a class or two to help determine if s/he is prepared to begin.  There is no upper age limit for practicing Tae Kwon Do!  GFTKD’s adult students range in age from 21 to well into our 50’s, 60’s and 70’s!
