- Effort: We put all our strength of body, mind and
spirit in training.

- Patience: We understand that learning martial arts is difficult and we train
patiently and show patience to others who are training.
- Silence: We put intense internal
focus on our technique during training.
- Friendship: We show mutual friendship to our fellow
students and instructors. We think of each other as our Tae Kwon Do family, with fellow students as

We are associated with Tae Kwon Do Chung Do Kwan schools and 9th
degree black belt Grandmaster Kim, D.H. of Tucson Arizona as well as the Chung Do Kwan in Korea. Rank
advancement is available, but requires additional fees for testing as well as annual membership fees
to the organization (once the student attains the rank of yellow-belt). Rank Advancement, has set
criteria and goals (including number of lessons and time in rank) and students need to meet those
criteria before advancing. The curriculum is different for each belt rank, and students
must successfully pass their test before advancing to the curriculum in the next rank.
Classes are organized into terms. The kids classes have terms
that are six weeks long (with some extra FREE Trial classes for some terms), and the
adult classes have terms that are ten to
fourteen weeks long. Family-TKD classes have: Fall I, Fall II, Winter, Spring I,
Spring II, and Summer terms. While the adult classes have: Fall, Winter, Spring and
Summer terms. We also have a break in the spring that corresponds to spring break
for St-Vrain Valley School district.
