The Class

We are a family oriented Martial Arts and TaeKwon-Do class.  Our classes are mixed adults with children and all ranks.  Some of the classes are taught at the beginning level and then an advanced class follows for the higher ranks.

We like families that train together.  It is encouraging for the kids to see their parents doing the same activities as them.  Learning together also helps for home practice when the adults can help their children and practice with them.
