Our advanced class is reserved for belts Green Stripe and higher. This allows our senior belts to learn and perfect their patterns and senior techniques.

Kodiak Cubs (Ages 4-7)

We specialize in teaching the youngest martial artists, 4-7 years old. This program was developed so young kids can also participate in the amazing action of Taekwon-Do, but with a focus on respect, discipline and confidence building. Kodiak Cubs focus on developing the motor skills needed to participate in the Family Class.

Team Wicked Awesome!

With “Team Wicked Awesome” we take the hit style work-out program, and incorporate them into Taekwon-Do training. Though Taekwon-Do greatly improves flexibility, balance and leadership skills; TWA hit classes will dramatically improve strength and core training for our competing athletes.

General Choi Hong Hi

    General Choi Hong Hi was born on November 9th, 1918, in the Hwa Dae Myong District of Korea. At the age of twelve he started to study Taek Kyon, an ancient Korean method of fighting with the feet. Later, when he was studying in Japan, he met a Karate teacher who helped him earn his first degree Black Belt in less than two years. He then intensified his training, striving to earn his second degree. Around the same time, he started teaching.

    Conscripted into the Japanese army during World War II, he was posted to Pyongyang where he was imprisoned. Wanting to maintain his good physical and mental health during his imprisonment, he practiced karate, alone at first, then by teaching it to the staff of the prison and the other prisoners. Becoming an officer in the new Korean Army after the end of the war, he continued to teach his martial art to his soldiers as well as to American soldiers serving in Korea.

    His beliefs and his vision of a different approach to teaching martial arts led General Choi to combine elements of Taek Kyon and Karate techniques to develop a modern martial art. He called it Taekwon-Do, which means "the way of the feet and the hands", and this name was officially adopted on April 11th, 1955.

    In 1959, General Choi was named President of the Korean Taekwon-Do Association. Seven years later, on March 22nd, 1966, he created the International Taekwon-Do Federation (ITF). As the Founder of Taekwon-Do and President of the ITF, he had the ability to share his art with students everywhere. Today, Taekwon-Do training is available around the world. After a life dedicated to the development of Taekwon-Do, a modern martial art based on traditional values, philosophy and training, General Choi died of cancer on June 15th, 2002, in the country of his birth.
