Tae Kwon Do is one of the most famous Korean martial arts and was created as a combination of many other types of martial art. It is so well-recognized that it is actually an Olympic sport! Karate, on the other hand, was developed in Japan centuries ago. It is one of the most popular of all martial arts and puts an emphasis on self-discipline, hard work, and creativity.

Either one of these martial arts is sure to be a great pick for both young children and adults. Our classes are offered to children as young as four years old, all the way up to adults.
