  • Testimonial"My son LOVES to go to karate and has so much respect for all of the instructors. He has been motivated since day one, which is impressive for a squirrely 7 year old. More importantly, he is learning values that he will carry with him for life. Highly recommend!" (Katie G.)

  • Testimonials"This place is wonderful, and I really can't say enough good things about it. When I started attending classes, I was an adult with no martial arts experience who hadn't done any real exercise in years. I was really worried that I'd feel overwhelmed and out of place. Two classes in I was hooked, and I've never looked back. The instructors are amazing, and they foster a wonderfully positive, supportive environment where each student learns and improves at their own pace. Instruction includes all aspects of taekwon-do, from forms to self defense and even including the occasional history lesson. It's a great workout, too: (Mariah S.)
