about our martial arts school

About our school


Korea Taekwondo Center has become a Landmark of Nutley martial arts due to their use of old school teaching practices. The school’s curriculum is based on its Korean cultural. The kids not only learn how to do Taekwondo they immerse themselves in the culture of Korea, which is a very unique from of teaching in New Jersey.

With their focus on creating a POSITIVE, safe, injury-free training environment, Korea Taekwondo Center has earned the reputation in Nutley as well as Clifton,Bloomfield and Belleville, of being the top Taekwondo school and character development center in the area.

Although some people think the martial arts are about just fighting, our program is so much more. Our program can change the character of kids, it turns disrespectful actions into admirable one and creates a selfless character towards the community and more importantly it makes them conscious of their Parents hard work and love for them.

You will experience the satisfaction that comes not from winning over others, but from winning over yourself as you become stronger, healthier, and happier than you have ever been in your life.
