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.
