My 17 and 13 year old sons and I just signed up to train in Hapkido! Master Ara seems like a great guy. Looking forward to it!

I enjoy bringing my son here 3 times a week. Master Antonio is a excellent instructor. Taekwondo has helped my son with focus and self discipline.

The philosophy of Tae Kwon Do

Seeks to bring students to a level of consciousness known as “Present Time.” This occurs when one is completely in tune with oneself and nature to the degree that ones actions and reactions are always perfectly coordinated with the forces in life whether that be in the sparring ring, in a social setting or even when alone. Such a person cannot be made upset by anything it encounters in life. True masters of Tae Kwon Do are noted for their serene personalities, which stem from their living in Present Time.

I enjoy going here twice a week. Wish I could have time to go more.
