Building and Developing Confidence
The Joeys Syllabus for children of about four years is colourful, innovative and unique to Hall’s Taekwondo. The course is age-specific and holistic; each class develops skills through activities based on a fun under-the-sea theme.
For kids, the Joeys program is about fun as well as reward for effort. For parents, it’s about seeing your children grow and develop character, as our inspiring instructors teach them physical, intellectual, emotional and social skills for life.
EVERY DAY IN EVERY WAY I WILL DO MY BEST
The unique Hall’s Taekwondo Joeys Syllabus:
- builds imagination through role-play
- enhances communication
- introduces important life themes
- develops gross motor skills
- activates and delights the senses
We start children on the path to a healthy life with learning through play, and encourage our Joeys every day in every way to do their best.
Joeys Resource Folder
All Joeys receive a colourful, durable syllabus folder. They can follow along with the vibrant curriculum, and have fun recording their progress. In this way, we encourage a desire to learn, self-expression, initiative, independence, satisfaction in completing a task, self-confidence and concentration.
Joeys focuses on two themes per term or ‘round’. Each theme is linked to a delightful sea creature with instructive attributes. For example, Sandie the Seal has fantastic CONTROL balancing a ball on her nose, Terry the Turtle swims deep with CONFIDENCE, while Chrissy the Crab finds food using her eyes to FOCUS.
These colourful animals help Joeys relate to life skills with play, imagination, imitation and creativity. It doesn’t matter when Joeys start the program as each term is designed for self-contained teaching and learning.
Reward Cards, Stickers and Certificates
Beautifully designed reward cards are a popular feature of the Joeys Syllabus, with Joeys aiming to achieve a shiny bronze sticker each week. This gives them a sense of pride and achievement as they visibly mark their progress. We also present certificates to Joeys who are moving up to Little Ninjas in the last class of each term.
Becoming a Little Ninja
Promotion to Little Ninja usually happens around the age of five or soon after, but only when the student is ready and after discussion between instructors and parents.
Joeys Parent Guide
The Joeys Parent Guide included in the resource folder is a comprehensive reference to course structure, themes, belt and dress codes, class content and more.
