Legacy Martial Arts lives up to its name in honoring the unique martial arts style and teaching strategies of late Grandmaster Jhoon Rhee, the Father of American Tae Kwon Do. As a result, it is a truly proven system, a martial arts experience that provides fun, fitness, and self-defense ability. Most importantly we believe our system helps build life skills—such as confidence, focus, and discipline—that are important at any age, in any endeavor, for all aspects of life.
We strongly believe in the value of Tae Kwon Do instruction for all age levels, especially for the young. Legacy Martial Arts emphasizes the disciplines of attention and respect; concentration and timing; strength and flexibility; goal setting, achievement and accomplishment, sportsmanship, confidence, character, and of course, FUN!
The Student Creed
To build true confidence, through strength in my body, honesty in my heart, and knowledge in my mind. To keep friendship with one another and to build a strong and happy community. Never fight to achieve selfish ends,
