Originating in Korea, Taekwondo is one of the most popular sports and martial arts today. Students will focus on forms (poomsae), sparring (kyeorugi), self-defense, and board breaking, all in a family-friendly environment; with emphasis on physical and mental fitness, discipline, and confidence. Instructor Donavan Thao is a third degree black belt and has been training for over ten years under Master Chau Truong at Minnesota Family Taekwondo. Minnesota Family Taekwondo has raised some of Minnesota's finest competitors in national and international competitions. Uniforms can be bought at a low cost and off-site promotional tests are held multiple times a year at an additional cost. Testing is not required in order to continue this class because we believe that each student moves at their own, individual pace.
