What is Youn Wha Ryu - Tae Kwon Do?

Youn Wha was a legendary female martial artist living on a remote island in Korea.

The Youn Wha system contains all high level techniques from every available style of martial art.


Due to its complexity, Tae Kwon Do was integrated into our teaching system. 

Students start with Tae Kwon Do and the high level training techniques of Youn Wha are added as students progress.

Overall, we focus on each student learning self-control, discipline, self-confidence and how to enjoy physical education.

15 min: Stretching/Cardio Warm Up

35 min: Technique Instruction & Reps


The 6 main principles that we live

by are:


Be Polite - Be Patient - Be Alert - Be Brave - Do Your Best - Respect Yourself and Others
