Why Tae Kwon Do

Owner and Instructor Thornton Kelly began teaching martial arts after meeting Grandmaster Ho Yung (Tiger) Chung more than 38 years ago. Chung began training in Tae Kwon Do in 1952. He founded the school in Korea in 1970 and moved to the Detroit area the following year.

In addition to Tae Kwon Do, classes in Aikido and Hap Ki Do are offered. The training rewards student with more than the physical benefits of stress release and cardiovascular health. The discipline achieved can be transferred to school or work.

People of all ages participate and are welcome and even had a student who joined the class at the age of 73!

A "Lil Tigers" class is offered for preschool-aged children and teaches non-violent resolution as well as to be respectful of teachers and their parents. The classes offered include conflict resolution methods as part of the instruction.

The methods taught do not emphasize a competitive spirit in the conventional sense, rather the focus is on self-improvement and self-confidence.
