The Elite Instructor Training and Tournament Training program at Risen Taekwondo is designed to challenge the students who want to take a leadership role in and out of the do-jang, and/or want to compete at an elite level.
To achieve this, the program includes lessons from guest speakers, practical leadership application, self-testing/EQ testing, public speaking experience, tournament training classes, special guest instructors/seminars from National/World level athletes and coaches, and more.
The goal of this program is to provide a pathway for students to be a leader in and out of the do-jang and to continue to grow and achieve their goals at an elite competition level. As instructors, we found that we learned most from being out in the Taekwondo tournaments and seeing and learning the different styles, drills, and commitment that other athletes make. To be a leader within the school, these students are encouraged to constantly challenge themselves and never get comfortable.
While competing is not a requirement, it is strongly encouraged at this level. Individuals, when ready, will also be encouraged to be a “leader” in class. There are lower testing and extracurricular activity fees in this membership as well.
