At my first few lessons, my complete lack of grace or natural ability was apparent, but no one at Ko’s said anything negative. On the contrary, this is the most positive environment I have ever been in! Everyone welcomed me and has helped me learn, encouraging me along the way. I never dreamed that I would like it, let alone LOVE it!
Through teaching the five basic tenets of taekwondo (courtesy, integrity, perseverance, self-control and indomitable spirt) and with the support of our instructors and our students who are all part of our Ko’s family, each student will develop focus, respect, overall good health and strength and self-confidence.

Along with physical development, including strength, tone, stamina, and balance Grand Master Ko also develops mental and emotional aspects of self-discipline and self-confidence. Both Grand Master Ko and Master Ko are well known and respected, not only here in the United States, but worldwide as well. We have benefited, greatly through their patience and their knowledge. Remember the family that kicks together sticks together!
