About Huggins Tae Kwon Do Academy
We teach Taekwondo (Korean Karate) lessons for ages 4 and up.
The original school name was changed to Huggins Tae Kwon Do Academy in May of 1998. Our goal is to provide children & adults an opportunity to receive traditional training in the Korean art of self-defense. As a student you will derive many benefits from your training both mentally and physically.
Along with its kicking and striking techniques, Tae Kwon Do utilizes the skills of blocking, dodging, foot sweeps, and joint locks to form a very effective style of self-defense. Physically, Tae Kwon Do will help you control your weight, tone your body, and improve your cardiovascular and respiratory systems. Your body will have more energy, and your physical strength, flexibility, and coordination will improve as well. Tae Kwon Do will also help you maintain good mental health by giving you a positive way of releasing everyday stress and tension. You can release some of that pent up hostility and frustration in a morally acceptable and productive manner. The end result is a healthier mind along with a healthier body.
