THE MARTIAL ART
Taekwondo, or "the way of hand and foot, is a dynamic and scientific martial art renown for a rich culture and history as well as a competitive Olympic sport. The art is known for its emphasis on kicking techniques, which distinguishes it from martial arts such as karate or southern styles of kung fu. The rationale is that the leg is the longest and strongest weapon a martial artist has, and kicks thus have the greatest potential to execute powerful strikes without successful retaliation.
As of 2009, Taekwondo was practiced in 123 countries, with over 30 million practitioners and 3 million individuals with black belts throughout the world. According to the World Taekwondo Federation, "Taekwondo is one of the most systematic and scientific Korean traditional martial arts, that teaches more than physical fighting skills. It is a discipline that shows ways of enhancing our spirit and life through training our mind body and mind” (retrieved from worldtaekwondofederation.net).
A WAY OF LIFE
According to the World Taekwondo Federation, "Taekwondo is one of the most systematic and scientific Korean traditional martial arts, that teaches more than physical fighting skills. It is a discipline that shows ways of enhancing our spirit and life through training our mind body and mind” (retrieved from worldtaekwondofederation.net).
The philosophy of Taekwondo can be attained through the cultivation and maturity of all three aspects of the Art: physical, mental, and spiritual. Once these three aspects have been instilled in a person, then the total maturation of the person will start a chain-reaction which will, with God's help, lead to a more peaceful world.

It's the perfect place to feel like your part of a big family that cares
The Best Martial Arts School in Port Charlotte . Grand Master Casta Has over 40 years of experience in Taekwondo . great Staff and family oriented and save enviroment. I recommended.
Respect, courtesy, discipline, physical fitness and so much more. Wish I had started this years ago. Grand Master Casta and Master Smith show an obvious love of the sport and are helping to mold today's children into tomorrow's leaders.
Grandmaster with hands-on training
My two sons have been training at World Martial Arts Academy for nearly two years. I chose this academy because it is headed by a grandmaster (sixth level black belt), while most schools have less experienced and less qualified instructors. The grandmaster personally oversees the instructors as they teach, and students usually are in groups of two to four per instructor. This assures close attention to every aspect of the training, and because instructors are observed by both the grandmaster and the head instructor, and because instructors are trained each day, the quality of the teaching is high. We left a previous larger taekwondo center because a teacher often had 15-20 students, and I found my sons were being offered a chance to test for higher belts when they were clearly not doing well. This, in my view, was to assure that they completed the training contract as quickly as possible. If they did not complete, the training was to continue for free after the contract ended. I noticed that some of the students with black belts were barely able to complete simply actions. That. to me, was unacceptable. The Grandmaster has been teaching for more than 25 years and began his training in South Korea. He is really outstanding and I feel fortunate to have found an academy that offers high quality training.
Best place for Tae Kwon Do! My daughter loves it here. She has been doing Tae Kwon Do with Master Costa and Master Smith for over 2 years now. Has tought her great self control, confidence and to always help others. I have her enrolled in the after school care and it is very professional and family friendly. I would not recommend any place but here!

Martial Arts with a side of personal growth, wisdom in a family atmosphere
A few years ago, I was looking for a summer program for my 7 year old. She loves arts and I wanted to her to have a program of enrichment that will keep her creativity flowing. If a friend had not suggestions World Martial Arts Academy, I may not have ever realized how much this program exceed expectations. During the summer, my child was able to earn the first promotion belt (yellow), all the while having fun with daily activities. My child continued on with this program after school and has now achieved red belt. Children get their home work done, and they learn honor and respect. Children learn to work together and have conversations and are mastering martial arts.
