Life-Changing Programs


Taekwondo is a martial art that was founded in South Korea. Taekwondo is one of the most systematic and scientific Korean traditional martial arts, that teaches more than physical fighting skills. It is a discipline that shows ways of enhancing our spirit and life through training our body and mind. Today, it has become a global sport that has gained an international reputation and stands among the official games in the Olympics.

“Master Salim is a great role model. He takes the time to get to know each of his students. Without realizing it, his students are all learning valuable life lessons about persistence, respect, and cooperation from Master Salim while also learning TKD. Each student is encouraged to set their own goals for improvement, and Master Salim helps them accomplish those goals.”
