Looking for more than a workout?

How about increased confidence and concentration to compliment the great physical conditioning you will get from martial arts training?  More energy and focus means you’ll deal with stress better, sleep better, and perform better at work or home. The teen and adult program is more than just a work-out, it’s a program that teaches students to maintain good habits not only in physical activity, but life in general.  Through well structured classes student of all ages are able to train in a safe and supportive environment, enabling them to form friendships that support them on their way to achieving their goals.

We train our students to be the best to their ability. Some students come to us in shape, while others have come to us 100 pounds overweight. Most come to us with limited flexibility. Adults start at any age, as we have had some adults who started as late as age 65, and have still earned their black belts. As a student, you are looking upon as an individual, never compared to anyone else. Our instructors will be there every step of the way. All that is expected of you is a willingness to try.

This does not come naturally for many people, but self-confidence and be developed over a period of time. Through Taekwondo, as you accomplish new goals, your confidence level increases. Taekwondo instills a sense of discipline and self-confidence that can carry over to all aspects of your life.

Self Defense

When the speed and power developed through Taekwondo is used in a self-defense situation against the soft vulnerable parts of an attacker's body, the result can be incredible. Taekwondo allows a woman to emphasize many of her natural physical strengths, such as power in the legs, while learning a method of self-defense efficient against a much larger opponent. Knowing you can defend yourself, your confidence will grow - and confidence alone is usually enough to deter potential attackers.


The principals of Taekwondo techniques are based on the design of your body. For power you develop the larger, powerful muscles of the torso. The speed of the techniques comes from the fast, agile muscles of the arms and legs. As you progress in Taekwondo you will learn to coordinate this speed and power, and develop a concentration to focus all of you body's strength into a small, hard striking surface like the edge of the hand or the heel of the foot.
