The primary objective of the Peak Performance Team is to develop Taekwondo athletes capable of successfully competing at the national & international level. To achieve this goal, we have implemented an instructional program based on modern sports science principles. The sparring curriculum was developed in conjunction with head coach Juan Moreno and utilizes his proven methods for achieving competitive success. Along with the sport-specific training, the team regularly participates in a strength and conditioning program. Designed to facilitate general athletic development, this component of the curriculum is administered by Coach Michael Macchioni, a nationally recognized figure in the field of sports performance enhancement training.
Our Training consist of three sessions:
Session 1: ATTRIBUTE TRAINING
Session 2: DRILLS
Session 3: SKILL TRAINING.
