I am Master Amy Park, master instructor at U.S Taekwondo Center. I fell in love with Taekwondo at a very young age, and chose a career teaching this wonderful martial art.
My goal is to help my students — kids and adults — build confidence, focus, discipline, and the strength to protect themselves.
Adult programs at U.S Taekwondo Center are focused on helping adults achieve fitness and weight reduction goals, while learning self-defense in a fun and positive environment.
Over time, Taekwondo helps kids become more focused, disciplined and learn important life lessons. I want kids to set goals to achieve their black belt and become a better person. Kids will become positive role models after attending my classes. Taekwondo changed my life and I know it’ll change your life for the better. Teaching taekwondo is more than a job to me. The martial art is an important tool to create life-long connections between students, parents and teachers.
