Taekwondo is a non-aggressive and ethical system of self-defense and one of the country’s most popular martial arts. It’s also a great opportunity for families to get into fitness together, since this class is available to anyone over the age of seven—adults included!
Vancouver Parks and Recreation is offering beginner Taekwondo classes from 6 to 7 p.m. every Tuesday and Thursday, and intermediate Taekwondo classes from 7 to 8 p.m., also on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Both classes meet at the Firstenburg Community Center, located at 700 N.E. 136th Ave. in East Vancouver. (…and after you get all sweaty doing your high kicks, you can cool off in Firstenburg’s lovely indoor pool; there’s a public swim Mondays through Thursdays from 7 to 8:30 p.m.)
The first class meets on Tuesday, May 30. The cost is $92 to $106 per person. Register online for Taekwondo classes by clicking here or call Vancouver Parks & Rec at 360-487-8600
