The instructors are so caring and patient with all the students. They take their time to make sure each student feels welcome and respected.  I have noticed a change in my sons as they continue to learn about respect, honesty and the tradition of Tae Kwon Do.

They are patient with the  kids. They do more than teach them; they truly mentor them in all aspects of the kids lives.  The instructors reward good behavior and puts a strong emphasis on school and succeeding in their lives. They go above and beyond for the kids.

The change in  the three of them has been incredible. Although they are still quiet,  their self-confidence has increased dramatically.  Master Henry  and Mrs. Shannon are sensitive to their fears and never fail to provide  encouragement, guidance, or tough love when necessary.

The instructors are incredibly approachable and have an unending well of patience.  There is a genuine desire to see each of their students not only to meet  those goals, but to exceed them. It isn’t just about meeting the  minimum standards, its about putting forth your maximum efforts to  achieve your maximum results.
