I will practice in the Spirit of Taekwondo, 
with courtesy for fellow students, 
loyalty for my instructor, 
and respect for my juniors and seniors.

I shall live with perseverance in the Spirit of Taekwondo, 
having honor for others, 
integrity within myself, 
and self-control in my actions.

Our Instructors

All instructors at our schools are trained to ensure that classes are safe, effective and fun.  Emphasis is put on encouragement and positive correction. Instructors are required to maintain certifications through qualified training programs, weapons camps and seminars that they must attend regularly.


Our instructors are committed to teaching the physical skills of martial arts while applying attitude-shaping exercises aimed at bringing out the best character and physical potential in each student. Through weekly training, instructors advance their own martial art and educational knowledge to become even more effective teachers.
