Taekwondo America (TA) is a national organization with numerous schools across the United States. TA schools adhere to the same guidelines and procedures ensuring the same high standards across all of the schools in the organization.

The TA National Board of Examiners has developed and certified a comprehensive training and fitness program for our students to follow. This enables children and adults to progress at their own pace and ensures that we are able to meet the needs of all students.

Over the years, TA has established a reputation built upon our standard of excellence. Accordingly, we do not allow any negative, aggressive behavior, or any misuse of Taekwondo in any manner.

Taekwondo America schools compete exclusively in tournaments sponsored by the national organization. TA sponsors several regional and national tournaments throughout the year and invites all enrolled students to participate in these events.

The national organization is managed by elected officers and senior partners who also run successful family-oriented taekwondo schools with the help and support of their own families.
