“Practicing Tae Kwon Do at Double Dragon TKD has impacted my son’s life tremendously.

His improvements are rewarding: not only technically to become the 2nd degree Black belt but also ability to have better focus academically to be in scholars classes, and good time management planning.

He has also gained “never-give-up-attitude” towards obstacles, confidence, leadership and wonderful friendship with other students.

It is a great privilege to learn this martial art from the genuine master of Tae Kwon Do, Master Kim, who has amazing technique with humble spirit.

Also the instructors are passionate to pass on the technique to students in the age and belt-level-appropriate class setting which is fun and challenging. They are so good at making the most out of students’ potential by creating fun and enjoyable classes. That is why my son has been practicing here since September of 2006!

The office staff is dedicated to help make your children’s training effectively and everyone is here to answer any concerns you may have

In addition, Double Dragon has also great supportive families.

I strongly believe by learning Tae Kwon Do, your children will benefit to acquire many important life-long-skills and become true martial artists.”

“When my son Evan, age 6 1/2, saw the demo team from Double Dragon Tae Kwon Do perform at his school he was entranced and afterwards told us, Double Dragon Tae Kwon Do is the place for him. As a parent it is such a joy to see your child find something on their own that they love to do and were not “nudged” into doing.

At Double Dragon, my son is, of course, learning and mastering the moves and techniques, but it is not all about that or just trying to quickly move to the next belt level. Master Kim and the instructors, Brandon and Chris truly care that the students are also learning to follow directions, listen with intent, behave respectfully, focus their energy and have lots of fun.

They break down the art of TKD to a level children understand and really know how to lead and keep engaged a group of youngsters in a fun and professional manner. Since being involved in Tae Kwon Do my son is more focused, not as easily distracted and is more respectful.With encouragement from the instructors my son demonstrates confidence by trying challenging new moves.

This confidence is apparent in other areas as well; he now wants to sing solo in his choir. He has learned that if you practice a little bit everyday he can accomplish his goals, not only in Tae Kwon Do but in other areas, such as school. He also had a great time at one of their summer camps and is looking forward to going again.

Master Kim is very accessible, the studio is run very efficiently and the staff is always friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend checking out Double Dragon Tae Kwon Do.”

“Our daughter has been attending Double Dragon Tae Kwon Do for the past three years. She enjoys it very much and considers it her favorite extracurricular activity.

The instructors are knowledgeable, skilled and courteous disciplinarians and yet also funny and kind which keeps the kids both in line and entertained. Their style of teaching not only includes the disciplines of Tae Kwon Do, but it also incorporates fun and games.

I am impressed with how the instructors have paid close attention to our daughter’s progress. Master Kim and his instructors have listened to our concerns and feedback which I appreciate.

We are very happy that our daughter has gained confidence and mental discipline outside of the physical aspects for which they are being prepared.”

“My five year old son has attended Double Dragon Tae Kwon Do for the past six months or so. He absolutely loves it and refuses to ever miss a class. I started him at Double Dragon because he was having discipline problems in school. He even got suspended for hitting another child.

I know, it doesn’t seem like teaching him the art of kicking and punching would be the right thing to do for a child who’s already in trouble for hitting but what he needed was actually a little confidence, discipline and to learn respect. Plus, he gets to work out all his excess energy in the do-jang and not at school.

His teacher at school can’t believe the difference. His behavior is better at home as well. He is working very hard to make his way up the belts and hopes to be a member of the Double Dragon team for a long time. ”

“Dear Master Kim and instructors,

I would like to thank Double Dragon Tae Kwon Do for everything you have done for our son Ryder. We feel very fortune for our son to have the opportunity to study under Master Kim, Instructor Brandon, and Instructor Chris. Ryder started at the early age of 4 and has learned not only Tae Kwon Do but self-discipline, respect, balance, stamina and self-confidence. We have been very pleased with the school and very proud of what our son has become.
He is now 6 and has entered several tournaments from the International Tae Kwon Do Festival to local tournaments and has placed 1st numerous times in both form and sparring in his division. Ryder is also a part of the demo team and always looks forward to going to Tae Kwon Do rain or shine.

“I have been an adult student at Double Dragon Tae Kwon Do for over a year now. I wanted to point
out to other potential adult students what a terrific experience this has been in my life. Many people,
over forty, may not think they would be able to study the martial arts. At Double Dragon, Master Kim
and his instructors, make it possible.

They are considerate to the fact that there are certain limitations that older students have and they are very accommodating. It is challenging, but at the same time, very rewarding; perhaps even more rewarding for the adult student. They are also mindful about preventing injuries. It’s fun, it’s a good workout and, of course, you are learning self-defense. So, if you are an adult thinking of studying the martial arts, I highly recommend Double Dragon Tae Kwon Do.”

My 5-year old son William Wells has been at DDTKD since he was 3 years old. We enjoy coming to class because the teachers are strict yet fun and engaging. They are attentive to the unique needs of each child. My son has learned valuable skills and he looks forward to earning a black belt.

James Williams, parent

Double Dragon Tae Kwon Do (DDTKD) school is by far the best martial arts school for our son. Not only is he learning the true “art” of martial arts, but the instructors are like “surrogate parents” who encourage moral values, self worth, and skilled martial art mechanics. DDTKD emphasis academics, self-confidence, and respect towards parents, individuals, and self. What impresses me mostly about DDTKD are the aspects of discipline and respect which DDTKD seems to center itself around.

The students of DDTKD are supported and taught by master instructors without being belittled or embarrassed. A student who may struggle in certain areas (not only in martial arts but also in life) are embraced by the instructors and reminded of their significance and value. Kids laugh and play, and all the while are being taught deep principles about life and personality responsibility. All the instructors from Grand Master Kym to a new black belt instructor have the students best interest and utmost focus on the martial art task at hand. Students are rewarded with marks of excellence and leave the classes with a sense of pride and focus. I often remind my son of what he learned, how to apply what he learned, and when to apply what he learned. Such markings of what makes DDTKD such a great school. A parent can feel confident that their child is in good hands with instructors who connect with the student, as the student connects with life’s challenges.
