State-Champions-2013Warriors Taekwondo has developed a highly successful Elite Team, producing several state, regional & national level competitors and champions. The 2013 results include 8 Gold, 2 Silver and 2 Bronze Medals earned by the 11 members of the Elite Team at both the New York and New Jersey State Championships.  All 11 members of the team will now compete in the National Championships in Chicago on July 3 – 9, 2013.

 

Training for competitive sports requires a tremendous commitment and our Elite Team learns how to set goals, take responsibility and prepare for the challenges of competition. In order to earn a coveted spot on the Academy’s Elite Team, a student must demonstrate exceptional proficiency in their belt level, coupled with the dedication, self-discipline and a sincere commitment to the rigorous training and competition cycle. Elite Team members learn the fundamental lesson of sacrificing immediate gratification for long-term gain. As part of their continued leadership development, members of the Elite Team also serve as Academy leads and assist instructors where applicable. We uphold the highest standards of educational excellence, and members of our elite-team must maintain a 90% academic average to participate on the team.
