Harness Ancient Secrets for Unstoppable Self-Defense, Inner-Peace & a Lean, Toned Body.

About Our School

The 5 Ways We Change Lives,
For Both Kids & Adults.

Welcome to the family!

Our Sandy Taekwondo, Self Defense school might just seem like a place to get fit and learn self-defense... but to us it’s so much more. When you train with us you’ll experience a place where you fit in, no matter what your background or fitness experience is.

You’ll get into phenomenal shape, learn exciting self-defense skills, and experience personal growth that has improved the lives of each of our students. The physical transformation you’ll enjoy is fantastic, but the mindset and attitude you’ll develop is what’s truly amazing.

We’ll help you get next level fit, but below are a few of the more subtle changes our students experience in our classes as well.

#1 Soaring Confidence

Learning anything new can be difficult. You’ll notice right away that many of the techniques and drills we teach are challenging, but that’s the point!

As you practice, and test yourself both physically and mentally, you’ll realize that with all your hard work, your instructor’s guidance, and consistently showing up - you are capable of crushing your goals! This sense of achievement gives our students soaring confidence.

As you develop new skills like punching and kicking- or even how to do a push up for the first time- you’ll experience a sense of accomplishment that’s incredibly satisfying and fulfilling. We love seeing this develop in our students!

#2 Full On Focus

Martial Arts is so much fun! You’ll learn all kinds of new skills and techniques like strategic punching and kicking, defensive moves, and cardio drills. When you learn a new skill, you have to really focus and listen carefully to what the instructor is saying, then perform what he taught you.

What’s cool is that this strong concentration naturally pours into other areas of your life as you develop laser like focus. It’s one of the most amazing side-effects of martial arts - many call it getting in the zone, unlocking your untapped potential, or peak performance.

Call it whatever you want, but one thing is spot-on - you’ll learn how to focus your mind and perform tasks you once thought were impossible.

#3 Pump It Up

Our classes are a blast and based on functional fitness. We use positive motivation and high fives - not military style yelling – and you’ll never have to spend countless hours on a boring treadmill again. 

Our classes are loaded with fun and exciting exercises designed to enhance your self-defense skills. Dynamic strikes, high intensity intervals of cardio training, and physical movements that mimic how the human body should move are the focus. 

Don’t worry if you feel like you won’t be able to keep up. We work with all levels from beginner to pro athlete – and everyone in between. And you know what...they all sweat the same at the end of the workout! 

#4 We Are Family

Many martial artists claim they always felt like an “outsider” before they found martial arts. Some of our students just never got into organized sports in school or felt like social clubs weren’t for them. 

But those same students that tell us how they “never fit in” or weren’t popular seem to come alive in class! We provide a safe, non-intimidating environment where we all want each other to succeed. There are no bullies or students trying to one up each other on my watch. 

You’ll get nothing but a lot of support and friendship from our members and instructors. It’s easy to make new friends here and, as a result, our community thrives.

We provide the kind of environment that promotes friendship, encouragement, and motivation. The sense of fulfillment after every class is more than you can imagine. 

#5 You'll Have FUN!

Working out and fun? Yup! Our classes are a blast! Martial arts is a way of life for us and we want you to have a good life too. We work hard but we play hard too. 

Did you know that the average adult only laughs about 20 times per day? Our classes strive to make you above average in every way - and that includes your mental wellbeing.

Laughing and smiles are part of every class as well as high fives and TONS of support.

Make the next chapter of your life amazing! We want you to succeed with us, so we’re offering a limited time 100% money back guarantee on all web specials.

Yup, that’s how much we believe in you. Scroll up to the top of this page and click on the program that's right for you. Snag the super-sweet web special and try us out. If we’re not for you, no worries. You get 100% of your money back. No ifs ands or buts.
