Who Should Join?


Kids are required to do a lot of sitting in school, and TaeKwonDo helps to relieve their pent up energy. TaeKwonDo is also an excellent way to learn non-violent conflict resolution and helps kids find focus and stillness. Through respectful technique correction and class activities, kids also learn that failure isn’t permanent unless you quit. By continuing to persevere, kids learn self-confidence and self respect that is well-earned, and marked by visual ranks as they progress through the belts! A martial artist is taught to see, feel, and listen — both internally and externally. Kids also learn socialization within a structured environment where others have similar goals. There is also quite a bit of teamwork once kids get into the upper belts, and over time these disciplines cross over into other areas of life.


TaeKwonDo provides excellent fitness for adults. It is a high-aerobic workout that uses every muscle group, improves stamina, muscle tone, flexibility, balance and strength. TaeKwonDo is excellent for stress relief through kicking, punching and shouting. You will learn important self-defense skills, goal setting, receive positive encouragement, and respect -- which is part of our daily practice. All of this increases self-confidence in all areas of your life. If you don’t have a current fitness program, getting more exercise has general benefits including better sleep & concentration, an improved emotional state, better heart health, improved self image, stronger immune system, greater strength and flexibility, and a healthier weight.


We have trained many seniors coming into martial arts for the first time; you don’t have to be running races to join us. The benefits to seniors learning TaeKwonDo are many, including: improved balance and body control, a community connection, cardio-respiratory fitness, strengthened immune capacity, sharpened mental focus, a boost in confidence, increased flexibility, increased oxygen flow, increased strength, and improved endurance. Since TaeKwonDo is a weight-bearing exercise, it also helps guard against osteoporosis. Our emphasis for seniors is on listening to your body and enjoying the workout. Most of our seniors observe big differences between themselves and their non-active friends as they age. TaeKwonDo keeps them young!

From Our Students...

Best place for martial arts in town. Period. Great staff. Great friendships. Great mentors.Nadine Batya
Great Grand Master Lee is truly one of the greatest men I have ever known. He is without any doubt the very best teacher of TKD. We enjoyed our years with him very much. He is greatly respected by our family.Mandy Shellhart
Learned a lot here! Taught me how to be a man, soldier & leader. And above all, Great Grand Master Lee was like another Father-Figure to me. I fully recommend this place as one who earned his 3rd Dan here. God bless USTC!!!Bill Evans
At first, it was just my husband... about 6 months later it was my husband and both sons... another 6 months and now our whole family has joined. This place is wonderful! They really work with the kids, and they make everybody feel included. Plus they work your butt off!Suzanna Fitch
What a great place to learn self defense and confidence! I've lost 50 pounds since I started this program!! The 5 tenants of Taekwondo are: courtesy, integrity, perseverance, self control and indomitable spirit. These are things we should all learn for self improvement. What a positive environment for adults and children alike! The children's classes are structured and fun at the same time. I truly look forward to going to class every time!Nancy Ragonesi
I have trained with with many Taekwondo Masters before moving to Eugene, OR. I have even trained with some of the Grand Masters in Korea and I can tell you with certainty Great Grand Master Lee (a 9th Degree Black Belt; there are only ~100 in the world) stands above the rest!! His knowledge and experience is unparalleled. This man trained an Olympian, created a workout routine for the entire U.S.A Olympic Team!! His list of accomplishments would take me forever to list!! I have never before seen someone portray so much positive energy. He teaches his students positive thinking, talking, acting and once you set your mind with enthusiasm and persistence NOTHING is impossible! I could not believe how lucky I was to move to Eugene and I will always be grateful to this school and to Great Grand Master Lee!!Timothy Quinlan
