We aspire to excellence in all that we do.

True excellence includes intelligence, awareness and a willingness to raise the bar every time. We believe that a life led in excellence is exciting and, despite life’s challenges, excellence is a valuable tool to rise above the mediocre status quo.

The five tenets of Traditional Tae Kwon Do serve as directives for how we practice martial arts with one other, treat our students and their families, operate our business and live our lives outside of the dojang.

This potent combination uniquely equips a practitioner with the capacity to provide a meaningful contribution. We believe in contributing to every situation such that it is better because of our presence. We believe in making our lives and the lives of those around us the best they can be, by making relevant and impactful contributions. We believe in making a difference.

Together, our core values drive our mission: “To make the greatest positive difference for the greatest number of people.”
