Our Mission

Our mission is to improve our students’ quality of life with an exciting physical fitness program, effective self defense curriculum, and lifestyle leadership education all in a positive atmosphere. Our Instructors teach this program in a way that makes classes fun and motivating. We follow the S.S.L. rule. We keep our students Sweating, Smiling and Learning.

Students at Boston Tae Kwon Do Academy experience better body balance with improved muscle tone, strength, flexibility, stamina and overall energy level. We teach strategic self defense which communicates to others that you are a kind person, but you are not a person to be shoved around. Of course we develop confidence with practical self defense techniques as well. We look at self defense like car insurance; hopefully, you never have to use it, but if you do, you’re glad you have it.

Boston Tae Kwon Do Academy students learn to develop balance in the four major areas of life:

Social – Better relations with family and friends.
Physical – Improve health and fitness level.
Mental – Continue to learn and develop mentally by studying an ancient art.
Spiritual – Develop enthusiasm, passion and excitement about life.
