Originaly Located in Concord MA, the Concord School of Taekwon-Do was established in September 1995 and is certified and licensed with the United States Taekwon-Do Federation (USTF) Affiliated branch number 84, and afiliated with the International Taekwon-Do Federation (ITF) Plaque number 5404. We are now located at 100 Main Street Maynard MA, 01754.
Classes are held year round with ongoing enrollment so you can start at any time during the year. We offer a variety of class times and levels to accommodate each student, and students may attend as many classes for their age group and training level as they like each week. Unlike other schools that limit the amount of classes students can take we strongly encourage students to attend as many classes as they can for their level.
We limit our class sizes to maintain an optimal student to instructor mix for each class. There are times when beginner class for a specific age group might be closed to new students to maintain our teaching standards, but we do our best to keep these periods as brief as possible. We do ask all interested students to attend classes for a one week evaluation period free of charge to be sure that Taekwon-Do is an appropriate fit before asking them to register for lessons.
The programs that we offer are three month, six month, and one year programs with discounts for the second, third and fourth or more family members. We also offer discounts for Concord town employees, members of the Massachusetts Teachers Association, and people serving in the United States Military and their families. For more information on all our programs, school policies, and pricing please contact us for an information package.
Our classes are taught in a traditional way. Students progress through the rank system learning that not only are positive efforts rewarded, but that added rewards also mean added responsibilities to themselves and others. We start with the basics and make sure that students fully understand the techniques that they are being taught before they move on to the next level.
We have very high standards for our students: standards that are set forth by the governing bodies of the USTF & ITF and so are higher than other non-affiliated Taekwon-Do schools.
All of the instructors at our school are fully certified by the United States Taekwon-Do Federation, Master Reyes and Mr. Murphy are certified instructors with both the United States Taekwon-Do Federation and the International Taekwon-Do Federation. Even our student assistant instructors are required to pass a certification course before they are allowed to take the floor and assist with classes.
We are all answerable and accountable to our national organization, not just our school, and all our certifications are on file with our organization and on display at our school. At our school you not only know who is teaching your children and what their certifications are but also where to check those certifications. For more information on our instructors or assistant instructors and thier certifications please see our Instructors page.
Benefits of Training are: Coordination, flexibility, concentration, self-confidence, and leadership skills. No other form of physical activity can develop these attributes as well as Taekwon-Do. This art is designed to use speed and skill, not bulk strength, so all of us regardless of age or gender can participate together. We teach our students the how and why of everything: how to properly stretch, form striking tools, jump, spin, and even fly.
Young students will learn to focus their energy in positive ways that carry over beyond the Do-Jang. They become more focused in their school studies, more at ease interacting with others, more out going, and self confident.
Adults have a place to learn and train in an environment focused on developing both the physical and mental skills of the art. We place a great deal of emphasis on personal enrichment and achievement and are committed to helping students attain their maximum potential.
