Grand Master Choi’s Tae Kwon Do is an educational and family oriented institution that enables virtually anyone to achieve a strong mind and body enhanced by traditional values and morals.

Our instructors are personally selected for not only their skill and achievements in martial arts, but also for their ability to effectively relate their knowledge and understanding to students of all ages and backgrounds. Therefore, our instructors continuously undergo advanced training in all self defense skills, and each and every one keeps abreast of the latest teaching methods and human development.

We are not only interested in self-defense skills, but in the development of each person as a whole. As a famous teacher once said, “These are the tools of everyday life. What you learn here, you can apply elsewhere”. Nowhere is this more important that in our children’s classes, where we realize that they must embody the very same principles that parents try to instill in their children.
