About Us
In January, 2002, we began providing children and adults with a positive, safe learning environment where they can enjoy all the benefits of Taekwondo. Our facility is a spacious 5,500 square foot space with a 3,000 square foot safety floor training area. We also offer a large clean lobby for parents to watch their children's classes.

Our school consistently ranks in the Top Ten of the 1,500 American Taekwondo Association (www.ataonline.com) schools nationwide.

In 2009 and 2010 we were awarded the American Taekwondo Association National School Of The Year!

In 2003 we were featured in a News-Herald article. Click here to view that article.

  Our chief instructors are full time martial artist. They devote 100% of their energy to helping children and adults achieve their goals through martial arts. Since our instructors do not have "day jobs" they are not distracted or tired during class time. All of their attention and focus is on the students. Certified instructors are subject to a background check and complete a youth protection program.

Our goal is to inspire each and every member to achieve Black Belt Excellence by providing:
  • A state-of-the-art training facility
  • A comprehensive martial arts curriculum
  • Highly skilled and motivated Instructors
