This is an awesome place with one of the best instructor for Taekwondo. Master Danny Jang is an exceptional instructor and has trained athletes for world class competitions including the US Nationals. He is very patient and takes the time to understand the athlete needs and work with them to bring the best.

I started training here when I was 19, and got my black belt in this location as well. when I started I figured they would just teach me how to fight. I learned a lot about myself, and how I not only would change the way my body moves, but how I think as well. I've learned so much since I have started training here, and I keep learning new things everyday I come. it's a great family atmosphere, and Master Danny Jang is a top notch instructor who has a blend of disciple and having fun. great for both adults and kids.

Excellent school,very good and friendly instructors. My son, my daughter, my husband and I, we all four practice taekwondo it is very nice because while we exercise we also have fun. At the moment we are green belt,but we have good support from our instructors to reach the black one, so we can be ready to learn. I really recommend this place.

True Korean Master! The best kids and adults martial art school in Tigard hands down. I have known Master Danny for about 3 years and would recommend training under him. Don't be fooled by lower prices at other schools, you get what you pay for!

My son loves US World Class Taekwondo Tigard! We joined nearly two years ago after a friend recommended the school. We live in Beaverton and there are three or four taekwondo schools that are closer to our house, but it's worth the drive! Master Danny and Ms. Alicia are fantastic instructors and are very involved with the community.

My 5 year old daughter loves the Tiny Tigers class! We make it to class about 2-3 times a week and she never hesitates when it's time to load up and head over. She loves being in class and practices unprompted at home (I listen to her count to ten in Korean, practice 10 Motions, and Guarding Stance). My 2 year old son watches the class and participates from the sidelines, it's pretty funny to watch. He'll be so excited when he can join his own class in a year and a half! Ms. Alicia is great at keeping 4 and 5 year old attentions and the assistant teachers are great, too!

My family loves this place. I have 4 of our children enrolled in class and they are loving the instructors. It's affordable on a fixed income to have most of my family taking their classes and both myself & husband will be looking to join our children within the next year. Since my boys have started taking classes here.....they have become more respectful and happier children. They feel they are working towards each belt they earn while learning discipline and respect for others around them. We have been to two other places for martial arts with the boys and this place is the best one in Tigard.

We've had our daughter with this dojang for close to a year and she has really thrived here. Danny and Alicia take pride in their students and truly invest in them; giving them the best teaching and experience. They are aware of each individual and have done a wonderful job working with families in our community and representing diversity here.

U.S. World Class Taekwondo Tigard is the best! The classes have helped my son with focus, confidence, coordination, balance, strength, respect, assertiveness, and most importantly for him--friendships! The owners/masters are very encouraging with the students, and I love how students of all abilities and ages can learn successfully at their own pace here.

It's also great how experienced students with higher belts help students in the lower belt classes. These classes would be good for anyone, but I especially recommend them for people who don't thrive in team sports. Plus, as a parent, I greatly appreciate the "Kids Night Out" parties where the kids get to have parties at one of their favorite places while parents get some free time. And the summer camps are a blast for the kids!

Does Your Child Need A Supportive, Educational, and Fun Activity?

Learning Martial Arts Teaches Young Kids Life Skills While They Have Fun

Young children are curious and active – and they sometimes have difficulty learning to control their bodies and their behavior. They crave structure and thrive in an environment that’s supportive, educational, and fun.

Does your young child

struggle with these things?

They struggle to maintain control of their movements and may be unintentionally destructive.

They find it difficult to focus on a task or to see it through to the end.

They have a hard time sharing their belongings and getting along with other kids.

Parenting young children is a real challenge.

You must balance their natural inquisitiveness and high energy with trying to teach them the basic skills they need for school and life.

Discipline, sharing, and self-control are all things they need to learn to be successful.

The ideal setting is one that’s got some structure but works with kids at their current developmental level. If they have fun while they’re learning, they’ll be more likely to retain those lessons and learn the skills they need.

Results and growth with every class!

Studying martial arts is ideal for young children. It provides them with an outlet for their energy. But, it also teaches them about respect, discipline, and other core values that will go with them beyond the dojo. Junior martial arts classes teach kids to control their movements and behavior, and they’ll learn social skills and interaction at the same time.

Studying Martial Arts Builds Physical Coordination and Control

Young children who learn martial arts find out quickly that each movement must be intentional. They learn to control their movements to the best of their ability.

They also practice hand-eye coordination and learn about their bodies. That means they’ll be less likely to be unintentionally destructive.

Young Martial Arts Students Learn How to Focus

Getting young kids to pay attention can feel like an impossible task. The structure of our martial arts classes shows kids the importance of focus and teaches them by having them apply it to easily-achievable tasks.

The focus they learn in the dojo is something they’ll take home – and into the classroom. That’s why kids who study martial arts tend to be good students, too.

Martial Arts Helps Kids Learn to Deal with Frustration

Martial arts instruction requires students to pursue goals to earn new belts. Young kids can easily become frustrated when they don’t get what they want, but studying martial arts helps them learn the power of persistence.

The physical activity in our classes also helps kids manage stress and anxiety by allowing them to burn it off in a safe and constructive way.

Kids Who Study Martial Arts Learn Good Sportsmanship

Losing is not anybody’s idea of fun, but we all need to learn how to accept a defeat gracefully and move on. We teach students that losing is part of life – and it’s what you do after you lose that tells people who you are.

Even though martial arts is an individual sport, we cultivate an environment of supportive teamwork where students root for one another.

My 5 year old daughter loves the Tiny Tigers class! We make it to class about 2-3 times a week and she never hesitates when it's time to load up and head over. She loves being in class and practices unprompted at home (I listen to her count to ten in Korean, practice 10 Motions, and Guarding Stance).

FAQs

My child still has temper tantrums and I’m worried about how they’ll behave in school. Can studying martial arts help?

Yes, it can. We help children learn the importance of emotional control and respect for others. These are lessons that will help them in the classroom, too.

Will studying martial arts help my child learn how to interact with others and share?

Yes. Even though studying martial arts is an individual pursuit, we teach kids to learn in a collaborative environment with an emphasis on sharing, cooperation, and teamwork.

My child zones out in class and misses important instructions. Can taking martial arts classes help them do a better job of focusing?

Yes. Part of martial arts training is teaching kids to be mindful of themselves and their surroundings. They must focus to succeed in class, and once they learn to do it, they’ll be able to do the same thing at school.

My child is out of control physically, and can be very destructive. How will studying martial arts help?

Martial arts instruction focuses on hand-eye coordination, control, and strength. As kids learn basic moves and then advance, they learn how to control their bodies and movements.

My child gives up easily when frustrated. I want them to learn persistence. Can your classes help?

Yes. It’s common for students to require more than one attempt to earn a new belt. We teach them that trying is the most important thing – and that persistence pays off.

My child is disrespectful to me and to other caregivers. How can studying martial arts change that?

Respect is at the core of everything we do in the dojo. Kids who study martial arts must respect their instructors and fellow students, and we find that they learn to respect parents, teachers, caregivers, and siblings at the same time.

More Benefits

Kids learn how to listen respectfully to others without interruptions.
