Oneonta Taekwon-Do classes are always taught by certified black belt instructors. Our membership and participation in Taekwon-Do International strengthen the ongoing training and development required to retain the ranks we have earned.
Our lineage and connection with Taekwon-Do roots has enabled us to retain the original purpose of our art: To cultivate wisdom, kindness, and courage throughout the world. Each of our instructors takes the following oath at each promotion test. We are grateful to the leaders of Taekwon-Do International for their foresight and commitment to traditional Taekwon-Do.
