At Master Lee’s Joonbi Taekwondo, it is not unusual to find mothers and daughters, fathers and sons, and brothers and sisters all signed up for classes. Taekwondo is not just a sport or another after-school activity. It’s a way of life, and once your family gets started, you’ll see how it improves everyday experiences of each family member.
Whether it’s in the way your child responds with a “yes, ma’am” or “yes, sir,” whether it’s your teenager earning the honor roll for the first time, or because you feel more focused and less stressed at work, you’ll be glad your family is Joonbi-ready!
Joonbi students advance from white to black belts by mastering the attitudes and techniques of each rank. Testing for all but the youngest children occurs every two months, offering students the opportunity to move steadily through the program. Click here to see the class descriptions and schedules.
