Meet our Instructors

The best in the pacific northwest

Our School believes and teaches the 5 tenants of Taekwondo.

We focus on teaching our students in a fun and structured environment.  We want to share our knowledge with the world and help you to become the best Martial Artist you can be.

Our Instructors also offer private lessons to help our students get that extra practice that they need to succeed.

Private Lessons can be for Taekwondo, MMA, Cardio or Self-Defense.

You can request a Private Lesson to help get ready for an upcoming tournament, sharpen your skills before a belt test or if you are feeling less than perfect and could use some extra attention in any area that we train in.

Feel free to drop our instructors an email if you have any questions.

Our words are simple, Impacting Lives Changing the World
