Core Taekwondo is a traditional Martial Arts studio located in Downtown San Mateo. We specialize in teaching traditional Taekwondo using modern instructional techniques.
Our Little Kickers program is designed specifically for pre-schoolers aged 3 – 5.
Students learn basic martial arts techniques while they develop age appropriate motor and social skills.
The combination of Taekwondo and fun helps students improve their balance, focus, patience, flexibility and self control in a non-competitive, confidence building environment.
While our Little Kickers program is specifically designed for ages 3-5, not all children in this age range will be ready as each individual develops at his/her own pace. It is important that all students are able to listen to and follow directions so they can stay safe in class.Key readiness signs include:
Our facility opened its doors February 8, 2014 (after we outgrew our old location around the corner) and is located in a former book store in Downtown San Mateo.
We converted many of the bookshelves that we inherited into fixtures in the space such as the bench seating in the front of the Dojang.
Some of the features of our facility include:
Downtown San Mateo has an abundance of bike racks. The closest are on the corner of 3rd and San Mateo Drive followed by those in front of Draper University (a few buildings down towards El Camino).Caltrain
The San Mateo Caltrain station is a short walk from the Dojang.
We have been so happy at Core Taekwondo. My 3 and 5 year old both love taking classes with Master Meggie and her staff, and have learned so much in the past 8 months.
