Our students are leaders at home, at school, and in the community.
The KOMA tribe believes that serving our community is vital. Our service helps us grow as students, teachers, and most importantly, members of a diverse and inclusive community. KOMA continually offers community events and programs, from teaching girl scouts and boy scouts martial arts basics to hosting women's self defense workshops.
Serving our community will always remain core to our school's culture. We incorporate service opportunities into our curriculum for all students, instructors, and staff, and we are always looking for new ways to give back and help others.
Building character builds leaders.
KOMA'S CHARACTER CHALLENGE
Ko Martial Arts is committed to supporting schools in our community to build character the black belt way. Through our Character Challenge, we partner with schools to foster a culture of inclusion and respect. Not only do students find motivation for their social and emotional learning, but also schools are supported with resources to help them continue their educational excellence.
Students are guided through a character development curriculum with weekly challenges and the progress is tracked by students being awarded higher and higher belts, ultimately progressing to their Character Black Belt. The challenges reinforce positive values including honesty, responsibility, and compassion. As they progress they earn new belts and unlock advanced challenges leading up to their Character Black Belt!
- White Belt: Courage Challenge
- Yellow Belt: Compassion Challenge
- Orange Belt: Responsibility Challenge
- Green: Self-discipline Challenge
- Purple: Respect Challenge
- Blue: Perseverance Challenge
- Brown: Honesty Challenge
- Red: Inclusion Challenge
- Black Tip: Selflessness Challenge
- Recommended Black: Humility Challenge
- Black Belt: Community Challenge
Once all the students in the class graduate to Character Black Belts, KOMA hosts a Taekwondo classroom take-over so the students can learn to be action heroes for the day.
KOMA is proud to partner with schools to support social and emotional learning. To celebrate our schools that are working to reinforce positive character, KOMA will provide a micro-grant to provide for resources needed to improve the school environment.
