About Us


What is Taekwondo?

Taekwondo is a universal martial art of self-defense that was developed in Korea, more than 2000 years ago, translating literally as the art of the foot and hand, or the art of kicking and punching. Taekwondo is different from other martial arts in that, while it uses hands, it emphasizes the use of foot and leg techniques.


Safety First

Taekwondo is safe and fun for students of all ages and physical abilities. Training is provided by experienced instructors where students are shown techniques in a step-by-step process that moves at their own pace. A thorough stretching routine and protective safety equipment are all part of our commitment to ensuring student safety. 


Benefits of Taekwondo

Physical benefits – Taekwondo offers optimum long term fitness training for life. You become flexible, have more energy, and become stronger than ever; plus, learn self-defense techniques. 

Mental health benefits

Taekwondo helps to build your inner strength and become a more powerful and confident individual by creating and setting personal goals, which will help you to increase your self-respect and confidence and helps you to lead a productive life. 

Achievements are often merely the accumulation of several smaller goals or steps. Developing the habit of goal setting is proven to be a teachable skill in the appropriate environment. Our motivation increases with every positive experience, action, and accomplishment, creating what we call “the winning habit” philosophy. The five tenets of taekwondo are: 

  • Courtesy – Respect for others and respect for authority and manners.
  • Integrity – Dependability, good judgment, and doing the right thing.   
  • Perseverance – Whatever it takes, continue to reach for your goals. 
  • Self-control – Having the strength to do what is right in spite of the conditions around you. 
  • Indomitable spirit – Unconquerable courage; Never give up!

Taekwondo helps you achieve good grades in school, success in your job, develop social relationships and be positive in your life.
