Established in 1994 by Grandmaster Yang Jin Suk, and continued by Master Brian Singer, World Taekwondo Corporation is a martial arts and community development organization, which promotes cultural diversity and community interaction. We strive to develop character, discipline and academic achievement in our youth and surrounding communities through Taekwondo.
Non Profit Programs
The Center is a program run by World Taekwondo Corporation. One purpose of the Center as our facility is to provide a place for our members to exercise and prepare for competition. Another purpose is to provide a hub for community outreach; this is achieved by providing classes to children in the community and offering a glimpse in to a part of Korean heritage through practice and performances of the tradition and art of Taekwondo. Thirdly our center has accommodations for our Live, Train Athletes that without the center would not be able to train and in some cases would be homeless. Our facility houses up to 8 athletes at a time and provides balanced healthy meals to its residents. Further our center serves as headquarters for all of our other programs such as the TKD Referee Development and TKD Coaching Development Programs and our Cultural Exposure Program.
Live, Sleep, Train to be Elite
We have members that are able to live at the training center. The athletes selected for this program demonstrate need and talent in sport Taekwondo. This allows the lucky few the opportunity to live in highly subsidized housing and be assured healthy meals every day. Not only does it help these athletes be able to continue in sport but also provides them the chance to further their Olympic dream, and share it with our younger students. Our live in athletes hold an amazing record, out of a group of six in 2011, four made US National Team. In 2012 another three made the US National Team and one was the Olympic Games Alternate -80 KG. We look forward to great future success for this program not only in the ring but more importantly outside the ring, where lives are put back on track and productive activities become a way of life.
