Our instructors have spent many years devoted to training in the art of Tae Kwon Do and other martial arts and have attained a level of expertise to qualify them as teachers as well as mentors.
Through extensive testing, certification, and tournament level competition, our staff members have attained mastery in this martial art and now enjoy sharing their skill and passing it on to their students.
