More respectful, confident & focused for school!
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.

Their brains need a break from homework once in a while, and exercise helps clear the brain-fog,
plus kids who are bullied have a harder time focusing in school. Martial Arts gives them the confidence
to stand up to or ignore bullies and lets them get back to focusing on what's important ... their academics.

Build self-confidence
    Self-confident Children and Teens are more likely to make better decisions,
    do better in school,
are less likely to be bullied and to be better prepared for peer pressure.
develop assertiveness to help them succeed at work and in relationships.

    Martial arts can help parents 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.

Take class with FUN, respectful instructors
    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.
    Our instructors model respectful behavior, while making classes challenging and fun.

Great workouts!
Quality martial arts training can help you achieve your fitness goals.
    New teen/adult students often tell me our classes are a better workout
    (and more FUN!) than boot camp workouts they've been through!
    At the same time they're surprised we're able to adapt our drills to their
    fitness level, making it easier for them 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
    your ability doesn't impact anyone else. If it takes you longer to learn
    and master new skills no one is upset and if you have natural martial arts
    ability no one else's learning style holds you back. 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 when you walk in the door it shouldn't smell like yesterday's sweaty t-shirts.
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. Besides, 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!
