What Students Are Saying

"Thank you for all you do. I am really happy that Jonah has finally found a school, teacher, and class he enjoys again!”

"Our family has been apart of TKD Wellness for a month now, and I must say that we love it. Master Torres is great with the kids as well as the teens and adults. Along with the Taekwondo tools that he teaches his students, he also provides them with tools to use outside of Taekwondo. He talks with them about setting goals for both in and outside of Taekwondo, he provides them with tools to help them focus and he imparts what I would like to call "little life nuggets" that allow the students to learn, grow, and thrive in their day to day lives. We are looking forward to this new journey at TKD Wellness and we invite you to come and check out a class or two. I know you will enjoy."

"My son Angel has been attending class for about 7 weeks and loves it! He has really enjoyed every class and is learning so much. Master Torres has been extremely patient with Angel (and all his students) and in the process he is teaching them fundamental skills such as respect towards themselves and those around them."

However, research has shown that training in a martial arts school that solely focuses on competition does increase aggression while training in a martial arts school that incorporates philosophy, forms, sparring, meditation in addition to competition actually lower aggression.
