I have been training with Master Yu for four years now at Champ Martial Arts. Over the least four years, I have made many improvements in my life, such as my weight, and my attitude problems, as my family and friends can attest to. I hear that question a lot, from family, friends, and teachers. A lot of people think that Tae Kwon Do is all about the kicking and the punching and the sparring. I started Champs thinking the same thing. That idea was gone within the end of the month! I will answer this question, not only for myself, but also for the people who don’t know. The most important thing in Tae Kwon Do is the spirit that comes with training. When I started, I was very overweight, my physical stamina simply did not exist, and I gave up too easily. Master Yu, however, did not let me give up. At first, I was like, “Okay, he likes to push us hard.” Now, though, I understand that Master Yu would not let me sit out because he wanted me to succeed, and I am forever grateful, not only for him having confidence in me, but for helping me grow a strong sense of strong self-confidence.

From Business: Karate Do is a Japanese Martial Art. The lessons learned in Karate, such as manners, respect, self-discipline, perseverance and cooperation are actually reflections…
My wife and I had been looking to find a way to lose weight and get into shape. I had suggested martial arts since I had a positive experience with it in college, albeit brief. Together we decided on Champ Martial Arts, primarily because the scheduling could easily accommodate our busy lifestyles. It has been everything we asked for. We have achieved significant weight loss, become more active in our day to days lives, as well as received a self-esteem boost that we never expected. As adult students, we have felt welcomed and valued almost as family. Champ Martial Arts has been an amazing addition to our lives and one I would recommend to any adult looking for a new hobby, weight loss, or fun new way to get in shape.
Tae Kwon Do Elite USA provides top-notch martial-arts instruction. This is the real deal, be it Olympic-style taekwondo, quality combat/street-defense hapkido, or Olympic-style/self-defense judo. The dojang produces athletes that dominate at state competition, excel and earn gold at national competitions, and earn positions on national teams (going on to medal internationally). Furthermore, when you advance in the belt systems (taekwondo, hapkido, or judo), you EARN your belt. Nothing is given. The curriculum is rigorous. The training gets you there. It is NOT a belt mill. - Larry Stokes
