Our dojang is centrally located in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina near the intersection of Hwy 501 and Forestbrook Road. 

Taekwondo is a Korean martial art (some call it karate) and is the national sport of South Korea.

In Korean, tae means "to strike or break with foot"; kwon means "to strike or break with fist"; and do means "way," "method," or "art." Thus, taekwondo may be loosely translated as "the way of the foot and fist" or "the way of kicking and punching."

 

Our History

Our Mission

We strive for many things at the U.S. Taekwondo Center.  Some include: self-control, discipline, integrity, courtesy, weight control, increased flexibility, and respect for yourself and for others.

Our youth are a big concern of ours, and through bi-weekly report cards, we stay on top of the behavior of our youth.  All youth are graded by their parents on several categories including: respect to the family, kindness, household neatness, obeying elders, school work, table manners, and attitude.  If youth fail to receive good scores from their parents, they could be denied testing for the next belt, or they could be given a different punishment determined by Master Lee.

While we do not do report cards for our adult students, the same attributes are expected and desired in their lives inside and outside the dojang.

The U.S. Taekwondo Center wants to build a more peaceful and better world through each student who enters into the dojang.

Our Belt Promotions

Students progress thru belt promotions. A student has to pass the following:
  • Belt form
  • Terminology
  • Discipline
  • Hand Techniques
  • Kicking Techniques
  • Self-Defense
  • Sparring
  • Board Breaking
  • Combinations

 

The U.S. Taekwondo Center holds belt testing every couple months, and does not pass students just to get them thru their belt colors.  Each student must fully earn the next belt color or they will not proceed until they do successfully master each color.
