  • Taekwondo has taught me to control my actions and temper.

    Brannon, age 10


  • I took my recommend belt test, made a few mistakes, and was full of fear, but passed...It was the endless hours of practice, sweat, and tears that made it possible.


    2nd Dan Black Belt

  • Looking back through my years at KTA, I cannot think of even one class in which I did not learn something.

  • My level of patience has increased significantly and I am better able to instruct others in not only teaching skills but in gaining patience for themselves as well.


    4th Dan Black Belt

  • From my very first class at KTA, I realized this was like nothing I had ever done before. For one hour I was in another world. Problems of the day just melted away.
