Since the first class was taught many years ago, the
focus of our program has remained the same: to provide students the
highest quality martial arts instruction available in a safe and positive
learning environment that people of all ages can enjoy. Our instructors
combine excellent student instructor ratios with state of the art training
facilities. Each instructor is a graduate of an instructor program that
represents more than twenty years of research and development. He or she
will be with you every step of the way to help you reach your individual goals
(and maybe even reach some new goals you never before thought possible).
The continuing vision for this organization
is to unite martial artists nationwide in an
organization that emphasizes “Traditional
Values,” while utilizing the most advanced
concepts and philosophies in the classroom and
in business. Taekwondo America allows the
instructor to focus more clearly in all areas of
the martial arts business with proven programs
in instruction and Leadership. At this
time, Taekwondo America has schools in Florida,
Alabama, California, Indiana, Kentucky,
Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Ohio,
Tennessee, Texas and Virginia. Growth in
Taekwondo America has been consistent and rapid
since its inception.
