We provide high performance classes in both sparring and poomsae as well as private instruction.
Woo Yong Jung
Our school is founded on the principle of providing our students with the best and most rewarding learning experience under the guidance of Grandmaster Jung.
He brings a wealth of experience to the school from his experience as the coach of the Canadian junior national team (2002) and the head coach of the Canadian national team (2003-2010) which included a trip to Beijing Olympics resulting in a silver medal for Canada.
He is also the recipient of the Golden Lifetime Achievement Award in the Martial Arts Hall of Fame (2001) recognizing his dedication to Taekwondo for over 30 years. Further information about Grandmaster Jung can be found by clicking below.

"We joined Woo Yong's Taekwondo 6 years ago. Both of our daughters ( ages 12 and 8) are students. Grand Master Jung and Master Jo are extraordinary teachers and have created an environment where the students are taught the skills of Taekwondo and physical fitness, while also instilling confidence, self-assurance, organization, and dedication and a sense of pride. Our girls love to go to every class and have benefited in so many ways. As parents, we could not be more satisfied. We have recommended Woo Yong's to several of our friends and will continue to do so. "
