All of our staff members have ​been a part of the Midtown Taekwondo family for years.  They are all students or parents of our students (or both!) and are a great support system for our school.  They do a great job of nurturing and caring for the children in all of our programs. 

Staff


All of our assistant instructors have undergone a rigorous trainee instructor program.  They continue to train 
so that they may improve their teaching techniques as well as accomplish their own martial arts goals.  
They have all achieved certification under Grand Master Robert Hardin and the Choong Sil Taekwondo Federation.
