Mike H., (Kai's Father, 6yrs.) - 

World Champion Taekwondo Academy is, by far, one of the most important aspects of our child’s life. Grandmaster Ryu  has created an atmosphere of inspiration both physically and mentally for all the students. I watched my child transform physically from being timid and barely able to touch his toes to now kicking above his head and looking forward to his weekly sparring class. His confidence at school has escalated greatly as a result of this program as well. I’ve been teaching high school for twelve years, and I also am inspired by the work at the academy. Master Pae and Master Ryu make me want to be a better teacher, as I watch them every week connect with kids and adults, motivating them, pushing them, and loving them with individual attention and never a generic, one-size-fits-all approach. And that is the final, and possibly most important aspect of this experience—they have fostered a family out of all the participants. Our kids are close. The parents and adults come together as friends. I truly believe in this program and everything they have nurtured and created more than most things in this world. Our son has tried many activities from baseball to soccer to gymnastics, but World Champion TKD has and will remain the one constant in his life because he loves every minute of the experience and the strict and loving care of Grandmaster Ryu. This is the elite program for children and adults alike who are ready to introduce a positive change in their lives.

  We love Master Ryu and his Tae Kwon Do school. Master is wonderfully patient with the younger children. He reinforces always trying hard and doing your best in all aspects in life, not just tae kwon do.

 Best taekwondo school in America! Real authentic Kukkiwon taekwondo not the fake ata version many others teach. Only Kukkiwon is recognized in Olympics and by Taekwondo headquarters in Seoul, South Korea.

Our family has benefited in so many ways by enrolling our son in classes at World Champion Taekwondo Academy. Not only from the martial arts standpoint, but from the lifelong friendships that have developed...not only for my son, but myself and husband as well. Classes are hard, but fun....the kids don't even realize how hard they are actually working!! I realize that fun isn’t the only benefit Tyler has received at WCTA. He has learned and practiced safety skills for many different real-life situations. He has learned self-defense and appropriate times to use these skills. He is reminded to show respect, to set an example, and to be honest at all times. Taekwondo became a life skill he has worked hard to acquire and could be proud of. He has spent the last 4+ years learning the value of commitment and follow through. All the while, his confidence increased. I appreciate and respect Grand Master Ryu and Master Pae and their commitment to the sport they love so much. I am grateful for all that my son has learned and benefited through WCTA, and “fun” was just a part of it!"
