Student Center

Welcome to the United Tae Kwon Do Student Center!  This is special place where you can find all sorts of resources for you or your child's Taekwondo journey! Feel free to look around!

As you progress in rank, we recommend printing and storing these documents in your own Taekwondo Binder. This will make it easy to reference and study for tests. Each time you advance in rank, you should come back here and print the newest guides.
  Be sure to use the videos for practicing your Poomse and 1-Steps, too.

Friday, October 22 - This week, Manchester and South Windsor have lifted their private-business mask mandates, so we're optimistic that East Hartford will follow suit soon.  When this occurs, we'll return to in-person classes again.  Check this page frequently as we'll post the update here as soon as we know!
