A better year for your family starting today!
More confident, more focused, more respectful (and healthier, too)!

Wondering if your child can handle academics AND taekwondo classes?

You may enjoy the article on our News page about how exercise helps kids do BETTER academically.

Exercise helps re-energize them while giving their brains a chance to "rest", AND kids who are bullied
have a harder time focusing in school
. Hilliard Taekwondo Academy gives them the confidence to stand
up to or ignore bullies and lets them get back to focusing on what's important ... their academics.

Self-confidence makes a BIG difference
    Confident Children and Teens are more likely to make better decisions,
    do better in school, and
are less likely to be bullied or give in to negative peer pressure.
develop assertiveness to help them succeed at work and in relationships.

    Parents who take martial arts, too, be an even stronger role model for their family.

    The positive, motivating atmosphere at Hilliard Taekwondo Academy
    helps boys and girls, teens and adults learn to set and achieve goals.

    Plus, our quality martial arts training can help you and your family feel
    healthier as well as safer and more confident about taking care of yourselves.

Have FUN while learning from great role models
    Harsh criticism and bullying students isn't our style. Learning self-control,
    self-discipline, respect and having consequences are a big part of our program, 
    but our goal is to motivate, encourage and inspire students to improve every day
    through fun and challenging classes.

Great workouts to help you get get healthier!
Quality martial arts training can help you achieve your fitness goals.
    Our teen and adult program offers a great workout and yet we're able to adapt our drills
    to your fitness level, making it easier for you to get started on a healthier lifestyle!
    And in our Pre-Juniors and Juniors programs, we use fun, active
    games mixed with traditional drills to keep students moving and exercising.
    It's like a team sport in that you take class with lots of other students, but
    each student's progression depends on their own ability and effort. This environment helps you
    make friends AND motivates students to compliment and encourage one another.

Exceptional martial arts training!
Just because we have fun and can adapt our program to different fitness levels
    doesn't mean you'll get a watered down taekwondo program. We teach to the
    highest standards and challenge every student to improve their techniques
    and give us their best effort in every class. 

Bright, clean school
    Visitors often comment that our school is so clean, so bright and so welcoming!
    If you expect our school to smell bad or look dark and dingy based on movies you've seen
    or places you've visited, you're in for a pleasant surprise. We offer great workouts,
    but we believe when you walk in the door it shouldn't smell like yesterday's sweaty t-shirts.
    And many schools may have a lot of square footage, but do you want to work out in the biggest
    space, or in a school that is one of the biggest in terms of the number of students training there
    because they've recognized the quality of our program?
Visit today and see why so many
Hilliard (and Dublin, Plain City, Galloway, Grove City, Upper Arlington and Columbus!) area families are choosing Hilliard Taekwondo Academy to move toward a healthier, more self-confident future!

You won't be pressured to join - We believe the high quality of our program speaks for itself and we want students who really want to be here, not families who feel they were pressured or tricked into signing up. You'll experience a well-rounded professional program that provides exceptional martial arts instruction in a fun, family-friendly atmosphere.

We're looking forward to meeting you soon!
