Great family-friendly martial arts dojo! Learn everything from self-defense and martial arts techniques. Very detail-oriented techniques with instructors who have been training martial arts for a long time! I enjoy the workout and also effective way to develop discipline, confidence, and respect.

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.
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
I am Korean and Tae Kwon Do originated in Korea. I also trained in Korea for decades- school, military, & some professional. My kids have trained here for many years. I am amazed how Champ students are very well disciplined and respectful. I know Master Yu does not focus on fighting. Many people believe Tkd is more sport and fighting just way I was trained and practiced. If you want to go Olympic this is not your perfect school, but if you want to become champion in real life- building winning habit, self confidence, discipline , and respect, Champ provides best instructions. By watching classes I also learn a lot from Master Yu and instructors. They share philosophies and cultures. I want my children to stay healthy, do well in school, & build practical life skills. I am very satisfied with this school. Champ Rocks!
Champ Martial Arts Instructors are amazing! They are very friendly, caring, and great with kids. My kids used to be very shy. With Champ Martial Arts instructors guidance they are more confident and respectful. We really thank to Champ Martial Arts Instructors!
RUN! This "school" is not legit. Walk into this place and look at how many "Black Belts" they've "promoted". I saw at least 5-10 kids under the age of 8 wearing one, and even heard from a friend that took her son there last year, that they had a 5 year old "Black Belt" that looked like he never trained a day in his life. Plus, they charge outrageous fee's for black belt testing (I heard $295 for 1st Degree), and have testing fees ($40.00) for every belt. Doesn't this "Master" have enough money. This is a business, not a school.........http://www.isamartialarts.net/Kukkiwon_page.html Look halfway down the page at the fee's for Black Belt Kukkiwon Certificates.http://www.tracyskaratestudios.com/nohiddenfees.htmThen, read about the hidden costs that no school should be charging, and why!Save yourself some time, and look elsewhere.
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.
Stay away, they advertise a Martial Arts school, but after walking in, it's more like a day care facility than anything! My kid was there for a "trial lesson" after coming over from another TaeKwonDo school in the lower 48, he didn't even want to go back! He said the training was poor, that the whole class was being trained like they were all beginners, and that he had no interest in training there. I took him back a week later, just on the off chance the other class was a fluke, nope, same repetitive thing. I ended up taking him to another school, J Park TKD, and he is the first one in the car on the night he takes classes!
