AllFamilyATA About Us About Us

If you are like most parents, your children are precious to you and you want the very best for them. I too want to see every child have the opportunity to succeed in life. I want them to feel safe and confident, not just at home but everywhere they go. I want them to learn courtesy, respect, discipline, integrity, perseverance, self confidence, self respect, self control and what it means to have an indomitable spirit. When they learn these tenets or life skills, they do better in school, are more respectful at home, active in the community and they even grow up to be productive adult citizens. They value family, friends, and even their community.

Not a parent looking for a program for your children, that’s okay too. If you are an adult or even a teenager, I’m sure that you are looking for something that martial arts has to offer. Maybe it’s getting into better physical shape, losing weight, learning how to protect yourself or your family, making new friends, getting into competitions, or maybe you just want to learn how to fight. Well there’s good news, you too can achieve all this and more here at All Family Taekwondo.

I have created an atmosphere where the entire family can obtain many different skills, build strong family bonds, create lasting friendships, and even train in martial arts for a lifetime. We do not simply teach Taekwondo, we live it, and we use it as a vessel to teach the life skills that make every community strong. Most parents want their children to learn courtesy, respect and of course discipline. Those life skills come automatically in our programs; we also teach the students how to listen, pay attention and of course follow directions; all of which are important skills to have. We pride ourselves in fostering a family friendly environment where the entire household can workout, train and increase their physical fitness as well as both self esteem and self confidence. Come in and see first hand how our martial arts facility has something to offer your entire family. I’m confident that you too value these things and I look forward to meeting you soon. Please fill out the contact information or feel free to give us a call at (309) 792-0066.
