Appreciation and Excellence

Greetings Students and Families: Well, it’s been a long and challenging last few months but now we are back open! Nearly four months to the day has passed since so many things changed.

Happy New Year Tae Kwon Do Students and Families!

I hope that 2020 is off to an amazing start for all of our Tae Kwon Do families. By now I’m sure you’re getting back into a routine. The kids have to go to bed earlier, wake up earlier, homework to do, sports and activities are back up and running, and the excitement of the holidays is being replaced by getting back to a day to day routine.  But I would like to share a few words about how you and our Staff can make 2020 one of the best Tae Kwon Do years yet. Let me discuss with you one of the...
