Couldn’t be happier with this facility. My kids love it and are learning important life and self defense skills. Master Taylor is excellent with my boys, even though one is a bit spacey at times :) So lucky to have found it! Plus we love our homeschool class we can attend in the mornings. Fits our schedule great.

My son had tried other places and he didn't like any until he took a class with Master Taylor. My husband and I like how he has so much patience with the kids and the class sizes aren't overwhelming like in other places. He always shows the children new things daily and also gives them advice if they ever get into a bad situation. Thanks Master Taylor!

My son just started a couple of weeks ago and it’s truly something he enjoys! He tells all of his friends how much he likes going to his classes! Taylor is really good and what he does, you can tell this is his passion.

My son & I love this place, Master Taylor is really great with the kiddos, took us awhile to find the right place and teacher! I had went through two different karate places before I found Master Taylor's place and I'm NOT disappointed so happy that my son enjoys his class and The Master!

Master Kelley is a superior instructor! His teaching style is highly effective and efficient with the kids. I definitely recommend Master Kelley at Functional Taekwondo if you or your kiddo is interested in martial arts training.
I shopped around before settling on a place to put my son. I travel 40 minutes, three times a week, to bring my child to Master Kelley’s classes. There are many places much closer. I did the free trials at 3 others before I selected Master Kelley’s Functional Taekwondo place.
My son has learned so much within the last year of joining his Functional Taekwondo classes. Not only can he fight offensively and defensively, but he has grown more respectful and has become more focused than ever.
My family and I have enjoyed watching this growth and maturity in my 10year old.
We are excitedly awaiting for tournament season to come around. My child has mastered the skills to compete on a competitive level!
If you’re thinking about it; just give it a try! I bet you will love it!

How Kids Turn Into Leaders at Functional Taekwondo

What is the process for transformation at Functional Taekwondo?

Teaching over 7 years, I’ve had the privilege of helping many families turn their shy and introverted kids into positively social and well spoken leaders.

Here are the top 3 strategies we use in our dojang to help kids become leaders!

 

#1 Opportunities to lead

Kids at our school are given many opportunities to lead. Whether that’s a warm up, helping another student, or demonstrating a technique. These small sequential steps eventually lead to bigger opportunities and responsibilities that require leadership.

 

#2 Positive peer pressure

At our school, you don’t have to worry if your kids are in the “wrong crowd”. The environment we have for kids is positive and encouraging (And if for a moment it isn’t myself the head instructor stops it immediately) That being said, class mates support their fellow peers when they have to lead and give them emotional support!

 

#3 Guidance and mentorship

As a kid, I struggled getting my voice heard. I was naturally introverted and not many people could actually tell that I’m an introvert based on how I talk to people. That being said, I know personally what it feels like to be nervous anxious and have a hard time speaking in front of other people. I will guide your kids to make sure they know the proper mechanics and “baby steps” that will help them learn how to become more of a leader.
