4Point was founded in 2015 as a youth taekwondo program in southside Edmonton. Led by Kevin Mejia and a number of experienced instructors, our team combines the principles of taekwondo to begin developing strong athletes and citizens within the community. It is our belief that by providing a safe and welcoming environment, we can teach our students the value of respect and discipline through healthy activity.
Our name, 4Point, is representative of the way our instructors strive to be the most effective teachers for our students. As the 4 points of our program state, we believe that steady progress, all-around performance, perseverance, and passion serve as the teaching tools to create young athletes and leaders.
The 4Point team currently hosts classes 6 days per week in the heart of Millwoods. It is here where students are encouraged to embrace the teaching points of taekwondo and engage in some healthy competition with others. Ultimately, it is our duty to provide our students with a supportive learning experience that brings out the best in them.
What is Taekwondo?
Taekwondo comes from the Korean word “Tae” meaning foot, “Kwon” meaning fist and “Do” meaning way.
Taekwondo is a traditional Korean martial art. It offers a total fitness program through poomsae (forms), and kyorugi (sparring). Along with teaching fighting skills, taekwondo trains mental and ethical discipline. It values etiquette and respect and develops self-confidence.
