Benefits of Taekwondo
With our Traditional Taekwondo, you don't need separate programs for fitness, weight loss, cardio, endurance, strength, focus, agility, self-confidence, defense, and self-control/ discipline. We Integrate all of them into a single complete body system.
Our children's and junior's classes are geared for children to have fun and build self-confidence, self-control, and self-defense, while becoming highly competent in the martial art of Taekwondo. Children also learn to respect one another not only in class, but also at home and in school. Parents have noticed that their children become more focused, get better grades in school, sleep better, and behave more respectfully.
Taekwondo is not just for kids! This training enhances the physical fitness and mental acuity of our adult students, also! Join a community of like-minded, positive, and supportive people, who aren't interested in showing off, but in building each other up!
Many of our students train together as a family! What better way to bond as a family than to participate in something that you can enjoy and grow together, while also staying healthy!
With decades of homeschool experience, our style is very homeschool-friendly. In additon, we offer private lessons, corporate training, self-defense seminars, and other groups (i.e. after-school programs, physical education classes, boy/cub scouts, girl/brownie scouts, YMCA/YWCA, etc).
Mr. Reiss, our school's leader, started training here in 1985 and was directly taught by our school's founder, Grandmaster Moo Yong Lee. As a Second Generation Taekwondo Master, he continues to instruct the majority of classes and carry on the impeccable legacy of Grandmaster Moo Yong Lee.
