My son has been enrolled at the Auburn Academy of Martial Arts for a few months now. Wow! What an improvement. You can see the confidence in his face, his walk, his talk, and his general persona. It is a Tae Kwon Do school which is a Korean form of karate.
I love this logo!
Tae kwon do is more on the mind, body, exercise and defense as opposed to more offensive forms or karate. We go twice per week to the school which is located at 323 Airport Road, in Auburn. I wish we had the time to attend more! My son speaks to every adult now with a clear and concise, "yes sir" or "yes ma'am." And though I tried and failed before, he has learned to respect adults as well as his peers from Patrick Baeder, the owner/instructor (that's him in the picture) for the Auburn Academy of Martial Arts. We've been so excited about karate, neither he nor I can hardly wait to go back each week.
Patrick offers a 2 week $24.95 trial that includes a uniform just to try out the classes to see if your child will like it or not. Of course, after our 2 weeks, we were hooked! This is just one more place that makes Auburn, Alabama a great place to live.
