It's official.... I love Taekwondo! Tonight's class was amazing and exactly what I needed. I learned so much in just one class and was hooked! I love finding a new activity that I've never experienced!

I've been attending classes for a few months now and it has been a great experience. The staff are all very knowledgeable and encouraging. The other students are so supportive of one another. It's been a lot of fun!

Cannot recommend this highly enough. They are committed to helping each child in their own unique way. They are throughly invested in teaching each child how to succeed and become confident. They also teach their older and more advanced students that it is now their turn to help the younger students. Could not ask for a more amazing studio or people to entrust our children to!

I love the patience and dedication that is given to the students here. I have seen such a big difference in my son’s confidence, as well as skills in only a months time. You can really tell the owner and instructors love what they do when they are teaching their classes. I would recommend this place to anyone!!!

We love taking our son here!! He has been working on his belt ranks for the past 2 years. It takes time and consistency, not just getting the children to black belt as soon as possible. Every child is different and they take their time to make sure they achieve their goals at their speed. The staff is fantastic, friendly and truly take care of the kids. This place is so much more than "just Taekwando" they have after school daycare program! Oh and they even have classes for 40+!

First off, I would like you to know Taekwondo Works is a 5 plus, there is no doubt in my mind of that. I feel it is truly a privilege to have my children to be able to participate in this program for after-school and summer camp.

I have three boys that have all attended Taekwondo Works for the last few years and it was the best decision I have ever made for my children. I did a lot of research and read the bios of the instructors on their website prior to enrolling them and everything they say they will do for your child is the truth. They all are nationally ranked instructors and have the credentials needed to ensure our children get what they need physically and mentally. My children’s doctors always say “you are so strong and all muscle” what do you do? The response is always first I do taekwondo, wrestle and run a mile every day. The doctor is like WOW, says keep up what you are doing, eat what you are eating and keep that smile. A boost of confidence for sure.

Why We Don’t Wear Traditional Uniforms

We Don’t Wear Traditional Uniforms In Class.

We don’t wear the traditional dobak uniform in class because in our opinion they limit what we can do in class.  The uniform certainly has its place in tournaments and demonstrations but other wise we don’t see the need for them.  Yes, I grew up wearing them and I certainly liked how the class looked but as an instructor and coach, we can do so much more without them.  Athletic development can be hampered by the uniform as well.  It’s really better to practice speed, agility and quickness with athletic clothes.

Because we teach grappling (ground defense) and jujitsu, our white uniforms become gray pretty fast.  Also, the taekwondo uniforms are designed for kicking and punching, we do much more than that.  I would point our that our USA Taekwondo Team that competes internationally and in the Olympics do not wear uniforms in practice either.

For parents that are looking at our classes for you or your children, don’t be fooled by the full uniform as a sign of more serious or better training.  Not True!!!  We teach so many more skills and create such great athletic skills in our students with our challenging curriculum.

…. and yes for you traditionalists – we do wear our full uniforms in tournaments and I wouldn’t want that any other way.
