martial arts east patchogue, nyHi, my name is Michael Hesselbirg, owner of Hesselbirg’s Taekwondo. I’ve been professionally teaching children just like yours for years, and we’ve spent countless hours focusing our East Patchogue Martial Arts Classes on things that parents just like you want for their children. Things like Focus, Confidence, Discipline, and Independent Motivation – Life Skills that Martial Arts students at Hesselbirg’s Taekwondo use every day in their school classroom, at home, and everywhere they go.

We know for a fact that your child will WANT to learn these vital life Skills. Not because we MAKE them (as adults often do with children),but because our professional instructors and super-high energy, engaging classes set your child up for success by using our Simple 3 Step Success System. It REALLY is that simple, and it REALLY is that effective.

  • Sustained Focus and Concentration.

  • Increased Fitness and Stamina.
  • Soaring Confidence and Self Esteem.

Don’t Take It From Me! Here’s What Parents of our Students Say All the Time:

“I cannot say enough wonderful things about Hesselbirg’s Taekwondo. The owner and instructors are warm and knowledgeable. They teach the important technical aspects, but also the equally important respectful aspects. My son has been going here for 3 years and I have see a positive change in his self-esteem and confidence.”

We use a Tried-and-True, Simple 3 Step Success System:

Step #1: Self Discipline…

The truth is that for many children, Self-Discipline isn’t innate; it has to be learned. But how it’s learned (how adults choose to teach and enforce the it) decides whether it will be accepted by the child, and become an intrinsic part of who they are, or rejected as just another thing they’re “supposed to do” (like the dishes, eating their vegetables, homework, etc). We know that – we live it everyday. So we don’t force self-discipline on our students (remember, it’s SELF Discipline), but instead slowly build self discipline through fun class drills, group exercise dynamics, and engaging Kids Martial Arts curriculum – until before they know it, your kids will WANT to sit still, pay attention, and focus on the teacher…. and they’ll have a BLAST learning how to do it! Sounds crazy, but it WORKS!

Step #2: Self Defense…

Of course, we’re talking about teaching your child martial arts moves that, should they ever need them, could be used for self-defense. But chances are THAT WILL NEVER HAPPEN. But you know what will happen? Someone WILL call them a name. Say negative things about them, to them, behind their back, or to their friends. Someone will call them short, ugly, stupid, or worse…they’ll consider saying these things to someone else, so that they can “fit in”.


Let me be very clear – I can and will teach your child how to physically defend themselves. But far, FAR more important, our Martial Arts classes will teach them to emotionally defend themselves from the challenges they’ll face every day in elementary school, middle school, high school, college, and yes, you know it’s true, the workplace and in real life as an adult. This is the real legacy at our school: emotionally strong children who grow into confident, self-assured adults. Which is why we focus so much on #3:

Step #3: Self Confidence…

For some children, just trying something new takes tremendous courage, and we’re there to show them how to try new things (like Kids Martial Arts classes). Children like this show MASSIVE confidence increases in extremely short amounts of time. Before you know it, they’re standing proud and answering questions with ease (in the martial arts classroom as well as at school!).

For others, Confidence comes a little more naturally, and we’re able to expand their natural abilities and challenge them in a way no other extra-curricular activity can.

Seriously. You’re Going to LOVE it and Your Child Will THANK You For It!

Regardless of their initial level of confidence, they’ll get the benefit of the group dynamic – learning with their peers, following directions, interacting with others – but they’ll also get the advantages of an individual activity – they’ll never be compared to another student, never be held back if they learn too quickly, and will never, NEVER ride the bench or sit out just because they aren’t as good as the rest of the team.
