About the Tae Kwon Do Club
The Tae Kwon Do club engages in the rigorous practice of this ancient Korean martial art through our affiliation with Grandmaster Il K. Kim's Tae Kwon Do Center in Fridley, MN. We welcome all levels, and will provide instruction in both the physical and mental/philosophical aspects of Tae Kwon Do. In the coming years, we hope to develop a demonstration team, as well as compete in more tournaments.
We compete in open tournaments through our affiliation with Kim's Tae Kwon Do Center. In past years, we have competed in several tournaments in the Midwest region, and have done quite well, which is quite an accomplishment for a club our size.
