Courtesy, Integrity, Perseverance, Self-Control & Indomitable Spirit:

Taekwondo meets you where you are and takes you where you need to go in mind, body, and spirit. The dojang becomes a place for both expression and returning to center. You can blow off steam, relax, and have fun, all while deepening your resources in both the physical realm and the mental/emotional realm.

At Blue Ridge Taekwondo, we focus on creating a safe environment for people of all ages and abilities to learn martial arts and receive all the benefits taekwondo has to offer: Fitness, self-defense, discipline, and self-esteem. Everything we do is in relation to the Tenets of Taekwondo: Courtesy, Integrity, Perseverance, Self-Control, and Indomitable Spirit.

The curriculum includes forms, where one learns a set pattern of moves and techniques according to rank, and specific self-defense curriculum at each rank. Intermediate and advanced students also work on board breaks and light-contact sparring with protective gear. Taekwondo can support individuals and families as we work to stay healthy and active, manage behavior and attention issues and face the general challenges of youth and growing up. 

How Taekwondo Saved My Life

Quietly and without me realizing it, taekwondo snuck up on me and saved my life. Many years ago, I stopped in at a local dojang (taekwondo school) to find out what it was like and if it might be a good place for me to get into shape and meet new people. I had no idea then what a life-changing experience it was going to turn out to be, and I want to share my experience as a way to reach out to other women going through similar stages in life.

I love taking classes here! I have awesome instructors and I have learned a lot in self-defense, and in controlling myself and my techniques. I feel Blue Ridge is a great family-oriented place; you meet lots of friendly people.
