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!

Ways to Help Your Child Overcome Bullying.

It can be difficult for parents to know if their child is a victim of bullying and to take decisive action to protect him or her. Children are often ashamed at what they perceive to be their own problem, so they may not confide in their families. It is up to parents to identify the signs of bullying, provide support and take steps to help prevent the situation in the future.

Common signs of a child who is bullied include:

  • Reluctance to go to school. When a child who previously enjoyed school suddenly begins complaining of frequent stomachaches or other ailments to avoid going, this could be sign of bullying.
  • Reluctance to get on the school bus. If the bus is the location of bullying, children may lobby for parents to drive them to school or even ask if they can walk or ride a bike.
  • Sudden withdrawal from friends. If a former friend is the bully, a child may not want to be part of a group anymore.

Parents who suspect that children are being bullied have several options to help their child cope with the situation, including:

  • Enlist the help of school officials. Approaching teachers, principals and others in the role of seeking help rather than accusing can allow parents to gain allies. A good way to do this is to ask teachers what they have observed and listen to their responses.
  • See if there are other victims of the same bully. A little investigation can help uncover other children who are afraid of or dislike the bully in question, which may help parents determine what is happening or why their child is a target.
  • Assess the child’s strengths and weaknesses. Knowing what is setting the bully off may help parents uncover reasons for bullying. At the same time, parents can help children play up their strengths so that they have better self-esteem, which is often an antidote for bullying.
  • Create a safe haven for children to vent. Telling a child that he or she “should not feel that way” or that the child simply needs to “grow up” will likely shut down lines of communication. Children should always have a safe place to vent in their own homes.
  • Seek counseling. Some bullying problems are very serious. If a child shows any sign of depression or rage, counseling should be considered.

Parents can be a child’s strongest ally in the fight against bullying. By following some commonsense tips, parents can turn a negative bullying experience into a positive growth opportunity for a child.
