Welcome to Tiger Taekwondo

Tiger Taekwondo Academy was founded by Master Jaeseok Choi and Master Kiho Kim based on the philosophy of taekwondo – Courtesy, Integrity, Perseverance, Self-Control, and Indomitable Spirit.  We continue to provide quality martial arts instructoin in both traditional and Olympic style taekwondo.  Not only the physical parts but also the philosphy of taekwondo to give a happier life to our students.  We have been serving the University Place, Tacoma and Lakewood Areas since July 2006.

All classes are taught by Master Jaeseok Choi, 6th Dan Black Belt and Head Master and Mr. Russell Larson, 3rd Dan Black Belt.  They are assisted by several Black Belt students and color belt students hand picked by master Choi to be Junior Leaders and are under the traininng to become Assistant Instructors.

Tiger Taekwondo is under the umbrella of the WTF – World Taekwondo Federation, which is the sole governing body of taekwondo in front of the IOC, the International Olympic Committee.  We are also affiliated with USA Taekwondo.  This makes it possible for us to issue Official Black Belt Certificates from Kukkiwon.  Our black belts are duly recognized in all countries of the world who participate in the Olympic Games.

 We also offer an after school taekwondo pickup program available to University Place and Tacoma students.  Ask Master Choi or Mr. Larson for additional details.
