We have the ability to work with any fitness level and make every effort to accommodate our students.

Children are taught that they can achieve their goals in a wonderfully support environment devoid of negativity. We foster team spirit that lends itself to the personal development of the individual that helps to create a cohesive whole.

Like any martial art properly taught and properly practiced, Taekwondo is a non-aggressive and ethical system of self-defense.

Taekwondo training promotes values such as honesty, courtesy, loyalty, and cooperation. Taekwondo is a total learning activity. Lessons are tailored to your child's age and skill level. Your child begins by practicing basic patterns and forms, board breaking, kicking, blocking, striking, and punching.

These fundamental skills increase your child's physical coordination, flexibility, balance, and mental acumen. Taekwondo develops your child's athletic abilities and self-awareness, and improves the child's capabilities in self-defense.

Pride Martial Arts is a regionally and nationally certified Martial Arts School.
