In classes we strive to teach Taekwondo in a friendly, fun, high-energy environment for children and adults alike. Through our class dynamics, students enhance their fitness and flexibility levels. Our training program challenges both the beginner and advanced Taekwondo student alike. Students are encouraged to participate in their path of personal growth through physical fitness and traditional martial arts training.

 Student Code of Conduct


We strive to provide a fun and engaging environment where every participant has the opportunity to learn new and exciting skills within a safe and encouraging environment. Students are asked to be respectful to their instructors and fellow students in class and within the lobby area. Students are expected  to  practice good hygiene and wear the school uniform for each class they attend. School T-shirts can be purchased and worn to classes but never to a promotion test.

MAIA Study Guide

Taekwondo has been taught for generations, and, like other martial arts, it is steeped in tradition and principles.  Students are often drawn to the practice not just for the physical skills but for the adherence to the high moral code of conduct the art projects.  At MAIA, we believe it is not enough to simply learn the movements, we ask all our students to conduct themselves in a way that is becoming of a true martial artist both in and out of our dojang.
