These pillars are the blood that pumps through the academy and are instilled into every member. It is our goal that each member be inspired to grow within these four areas of life. In addition, the U.S. Taekwondo Academy follows the ancient Tenets of Taekwondo. Courtesy, Integrity, Perseverance, Self-Control, and Indomitable Spirit help to strengthen the core of each member of the U.S. Taekwondo Academy.
