About Ferkile’s Taekwondo

The Journey Begins Here

If you’re new to Taekwondo, these basics will get you started on the road to success.

There are many different types of martial arts, each with their own unique style and disciplines. We happen to think Taekwondo is awesome, but that’s for you to decide. Have you been considering enrolling yourself, or perhaps enrolling your child but haven’t taken that first step yet? We invite you to visit either of our locations to observe a class whenever you’d like. Your first class is FREE so you can make sure Taekwondo is for you. One thing you will notice is that every class is different. One class you may find yourself working on self-defense techniques, during another you may be practicing Poomsae or kicking exercises and focusing on cardio.

The one thing you can always count on is that you or your child will always feel a part of a community and will have the dedicated support and guidance needed to succeed. We won’t let you give up. We encourage you to please take a few moments to look around our site, scroll down and read about the history of Taekwondo, our Creed and the 5 Tenets that all students are required to memorize and incorporate into their lives inside and beyond our Do Jang (school) walls. When you’re ready, stop by and see us or contact Master Ferkile at tkdferk@gmail.com to schedule your free class today.
