UNITED STATES TAEKWONDO MARTIAL ARTS ACADEMY
Taekwondo is a traditional Korean form of martial arts that focuses on building a strong mind and body. Classes consist of training in sparring, kicking, board breaking, poomse (forms), self-defense, and weapons.
Students enter the dojang as a no belt and work their way up to their first belt, the white belt. At every level of promotion, students are expected to learn cultural, physical, and emotional mastery of lessons provided by Grandmaster Choi, masters, and instructors. Belt advancement requires a pre-testing period in order to ensure candidacy for the next belt level. Attendance is also required in order to advance. Two classes are recommended, per week, to keep up with study. Classes are available every weekday between 3 pm and 6 pm. See the schedule page for exact times for each location.
