Grand Master Park U.S. Taekwondo Academy

Hi, I’m Grand Master Park.


I remember when I was child, feeling uncertainty about beginning martial arts. I wondered if I had what it took to succeed and I wasn’t the most athletic or confident child - quite the opposite. Little did I know that beginning my martial arts journey would be one of the most profound experiences of my life!

When I opened my school in 2000, I made a commitment to serving and empowering the community of Lakewood by teaching children and adults the confidence, leadership and fitness skills that can only be achieved through martial arts.

We Share & teach The Same Values You Teach At Home.
