Taekwondo classes are offered at LGS through the Ahn Taekwondo Institute – a local martial arts school known for its quality instruction with a flare for FUN. Students will learn basic motions, forms and techniques while working on coordination, flexibility, listening, cooperation, and more.

This week, during the final session of the spring term, students demonstrated various taekwondo movements including “breaking” boards with hands, feet and elbows!
