“My son is 5yo and has been attending classes at Authentic Taekwondo for over a year now. During this time, we’d not only noticed his progress in taekwondo, but also his confidence and self discipline. Master Farah and his team are experienced, passionate and very committed to teaching each student not just the art of taekwondo, but instilling upon them the value and spirit of achieving their personal best in whatever they do. They are very patient as they understand each student progress at their own pace, but they always encourage participation and will challenge them at every stage. We feel very lucky that our neighbour suggested such a wonderful place where my kid can learn, be active and have fun.” ~ Robert Q.
