Life Skills Through Martial Arts
Grandmaster Jhoon Rhee founded his institute in 1962, bringing his unique martial arts style and teaching techniques to America. Over 100,000 people have studied his method of Tae Kwon Do, including such luminaries as boxing legend Muhammad Ali, martial arts icon Bruce Lee, and President Joe Biden, as well as hundreds of members of the House of Representatives and the Senate.
Masters Barry Shackelford and Francis Pineda continue Grandmaster Rhee’s mission of building confidence and discipline, strong character, as well as mental and physical fitness in their students. They have built a strong sense of community that provides a unique setting where students achieve life skills that will last a lifetime.
KNEEHIGH NINJA PROGRAM
Starting at 4 years old, our KneeHigh Ninja students enjoy classes that provide a supportive environment where they develop good habits such as following directions, improving their listening skills and attention, as well as respect for self and others.
JUNIOR & FAMILY PROGRAM
Our older grade-school age students develop confidence and character by earning higher levels of Tae Kwon Do ranks. This gives them a sense of achievement and accomplishment that can be applied to other areas of life. Parents appreciate the ability to attend classes and train with their children in a studio dedicated to family fitness.
TEEN & ADULT PROGRAM
Our Program for older teens and adults offers the ideal balance of physical exercise, philosophy, self-defense, and a Martial Arts curriculum. Through dedicated practice and by working towards common goals, these students develop a strong sense of community.

“A note to qualify Andres for his blue tape at his next Kneehigh ninja class Thank you! The change in his behavior has been quite noticeable. His sister even commented – “wow, Andres, you’re being so nice lately, you should really do more Tae Kwon Do!”
[on virtual classes during COVID] “Thank you SO MUCH for doing this class today. Today was the happiest we have seen Ollie in almost two weeks, and I am sure a lot of it had to do with having a tae kwon do class which made life feel *almost* like normal. Thank you, thank you, thank you.”
