A message from the President

Our people is our business.  When we see our students develop into fit, healthy and confident individuals, that is confirmation that we are on the right track. However, if the lessons are to be ingrained, we need time.

Our students progress because of the fundamental life lessons Taekwondo offers. Many life skills such as discipline, confidence and perseverance are taught on a daily basis.  When these lessons are used daily, we see the incremental progress. Coupled with results from school, competition and social settings, we can see the seeds we plant blossoming into beautiful gardens with all types of flowers.

Authentic is more than just a place of learning martial arts and fitness. We are a family, where each member takes care of the other much like their own.  Whether we are in children’s class or high level competition travelling abroad, our members stick together and help each child/athlete as though they are their own.  

Children are very impressionable.  Watching our adults behave in that caring manner, they learn and follow the examples with their classmates and teammates.

The future of Authentic Taekwondo looks bright because of the amazing people we have among us.  We continue to strive for greatness in all aspects of our life and encourage our members to seize the moment and aim high.

I would like to take this moment to congratulate all our black belt candidates and thank them for their dedication to our art and family.
