Kwon's Taekwondo has been growing since it was founded in 1989 by Grandmaster Young A. Kwon.  Grandmaster Kwon continues to teach students, of all ages, the benefits and values of a lifestyle influenced by Taekwondo and other martial arts. 
 
Kwon's Taekwondo's Masters and Instructors are all certified by the Kukkiwon (World Taekwondo Headquarters), the certifying body of the World Taekwondo Federation (WTF), which governs the Sport of Taekwondo. Our classes are designed for different levels of ability and expertise from beginner to advanced Black Belt. We offer a flexible schedule and exciting programs for everyone.
