Hills District Martial Arts: Taekwondo, Haidong Gumdo & Hapkido

The Star System

What is the Star System?

We encourage our TKD Kids and Juniors to be Stars both inside and outside of the Dojang. A Martial Artist needs to have more than just the physical skills, and we want our students to succeed in all aspects of their life.

Our Star System helps reward our students for their outside achievements and recognises their effort while not wearing the HDMA Uniform.

How Does it Work?

When a student accomplishes something of note outside of Taekwondo, we love to hear about it! If your child earns an award/certificate/medal/prize from school, sport or other academic achievement, have them bring it to class with them the next time they attend and show our Instructors!

The Instructors will reward them with a Star Patch to be placed on the collar of their uniform. Students are able to earn one star per day, and awards should be brought in within a few days of receiving them. Bring them in fast! Each star will require more and more impressive awards to earn, so keep improving!

Stars should be organised on the collar in the above order. For information on arranging the Stars, please see our instructing team.

how Does it Help?

This system was designed to assist in motivating our students to continue to strive for excellence both in and outside the Dojang. We want our students to understand that they are a Martial Artist EVERYWHERE, not just within our walls, and should push to improve all the time.

Parents can assist by encouraging their children to achieve, set goals and work towards that next star! If your child's school does not issue awards, come and see our Instructors for advice on how to get involved!

For more information on how to incorporate Martial Arts into your child's daily life or how to use Martial Arts to encourage your children, speak to one of our friendly instructors!
