Blackhawk Taekwondo is a student and family first traditional martial arts school that is veteran owned and operated. We pride ourselves in putting our families, students, and the art of TaeKwonDo first and business second. With this philosophy you will find that there are no gimmicks, no fine print, no smoke and mirrors, just real Masters and Instructors with a passion to teach, learn, and grow the art of TaeKwonDo in our community.
We have over 40 years experience in TaeKwonDo, training and competing globally, and a training and study program that has been developed and passed down for generations. When you arrive at our school you will notice that the curriculum has not been watered down or bought from third party sources like some others, it is traditional and effective.
We want our students to not only be confident in themselves, but to also be effective in making good choices, decisions, and being able to defend themselves.
While many schools focus on fun and games we believe that we can have fun while training without sacrificing precious class time on games.
Martial Arts in and of itself has been known to not only help but improve students lives that have trouble paying attention, staying focused, and learning. Traditional martial arts has been doing this for decades without smoke and mirrors and without the use of so called unaccredited “Child development courses”

You will also find here that adults and children have separate class times for training. This is especially important for parents who need to turn off being a parent for an hour and focus on themselves. Adults will also learn to not only be more confident, but also get stronger, and let go of the stress that comes with being an adult. We believe that the stress you come in with should be left on the mat and not picked back up and carried with you when you leave. You will notice differences in training between the age groups because we create classes based on the need of the student, and the need of a 10 year old is not the same need as an adult. We believe in balance between a healthy mind and a healthy body to go along with the ability to take control of a situation at a moments notice.
