Tae Kwon Do
Tae Kwon Do (pronounced “tay-kwon-doe”) is a martial art that developed in Korea and is considered to be a superior form of self-defense. Tae Kwon Do means the ‘kicking and punching’ way.
The total art form encompasses the mind, body, and spirit. Tae Kwon Do not only helps one achieve flexibility, power, endurance and balance, but provides a foundation for self-confidence, respect and discipline that will carry over into all aspects of life.
At United TKD, we offer classes for adults, families, and children of all ages.

It’s unlikely that your child can attend a health club with you. And you would probably feel a little out of place if you joined in with your son or daughter’s soccer team. Yet, at United TKD, everyone can train together side by side. As a parent, you will also be setting an invaluable example for your child about the importance of regular exercise.
Best of all, no two classes are alike. You and your child will appreciate the varied, high-energy workouts and be motivated to attend lessons regularly. I’m sure you are always aware of the places your child goes and the people that surround them. At United TKD, you can be confident that you and your family will be developing relationships with sincere, motivated, healthy families who are dedicated to self-improvement.
Tiny Kickers (4-6 year olds)
For our Tiny Kickers, we have developed a very unique and specialized program. These classes are packed with activities that help these young students with focus, respect, agility, balance and flexibility. The curriculum was built on the 3 focuses (eye, mind, and body) and activities are always centered around these goals. This unique and fun program is designed to prepare them for Kindergarten and First Grade.
Children/Teen Classes (Ages 10-16)
United TKD will provide your child with the tools required to help in grade improvement by giving them the discipline needed to study, complete homework, and organize their time wisely. They will also learn leadership skills to help them succeed in life. We teach them to set goals and to take responsibility for their own actions.
Our training will increase physical stamina and agility, which will increase physical aptitude and focus. Consistent training will also greatly improve mental development and provide realistic self-defense skills. United Tae Kwon Do not only teaches several life changing skills but is safe way to make friends, stay in shape, and have fun! TKD will help in reinforcing all the good habits that they learn here into every other part of their life. In class they will learn important leadership skills, respect, focus, discipline and perseverance. It is most important for teens to continue to train through this period, to prepare them for young adulthood.

After School Program (CHCCS K-8th grade)
Our After School Program is the perfect way for children to meet new friends, complete their homework, and attend TKD classes before they go home! After School kids get picked up from their school, and come back to our facilities, and are directly supervised in a safe environment. When your child finishes their homework, there are plenty of other games and activities that they can do (the child above built his own fort with a giant cardboard box!). After School runs from the end of school until 6pm! And best part is, you will only pay about $3/hr for childcare! Available for 3, 4 or 5 days. Please contact your nearest UTA with any questions!
Our birthday parties are the BEST! Not only do we include everything from the cake to the goodie bags, we do it all right here in our school, and take care of clean-up! The only thing the kids will be leaving with are presents and smiles! Our birthday parties vary for each location, but are generally about $225-$250 for a 1.5 hour party for up to 20 friends! The FREE intro class, games, cake, snacks, goodie bags, decorations, and clean-up are all included! Please contact us to schedule your party! (Must give 30 days notice and have invitation list ready).
