Written Testimonials

"Both the Masters keep the children entertained/interested/having fun while teaching discipline, balance, focus, and martial arts skills. This was our second attempt at Tae Kwon Do where my son was bored with the first location. Now...he can't stop talking about going to class. Because of his excitement, I joined myself and it's been a great father-son bonding experience. I would highly recommend Tiger World Class!"

- Nick Dalesio, father of Tiger World Class Tae Kwon Do and Family Martial Arts student

"Our twin boys joined the Little Tigers program back in November and have fallen in love with TKD. The masters teach authentic moves and instill discipline through three major focuses - eye, mind and body - while still creating a fun atmosphere. As someone who previously obtained a black belt, my standards are high. That being said, I wouldn't send my children anywhere else"

- Diana Choi, mother of Tiger World Class Tae Kwon Do and Family Martial Arts student

"Our whole family has now joined Tiger World Class in Ellicott City. Our boys love Master Shin and you can tell that he cares just as much for them. My husband looks forward to every class and has finally found a real love for a sport. I have joined because I am looking for a healthier 2014. I am intimidatd, but already Master Chong and Master Shin both make me feel like it is possible. There is something special going on beyond just the typical Tae Kwon Do at this Dojang... There is a true sense of family, community an good will."

"A school that you can entrust your children with to learn and to progress with safety in mind. A school that will teach your family skills that will enhance your life."

- Bill Sparks (son Will) former student of Master Shin

"Do it! You won't regret it. The instructors, atmosphere, and other students are all great! It will be a very positive experience for the entire family."

- Robin Funk (daughter Breanna) Former student of Master Shin

"To families considering enrolling in Tiger Kim's Tae Kwon Do school, I would encourage them to go to the school, talk to them, and observe one of the classes. We have previously tried some other activities without a good outcome, but Tiger Kim's instructors have worked hard to build a relationship with my son to help him learn about and develop skill in Tae Kwon Do. We are so glad we joined Tiger Kim's Tae Kwon Do. We looked at other Tae Kwon Do schools, but this one was the best fit for us."

- Lisa Bowman (son Daniel) is a former student of Master Shin

"I knew that I would benefit personally from improved health, but I didn't realize how it would impact my professional life. Losing weight and having more energy makes me feel better about myself, and that has carried over into my teaching. I think I am more positive in the classroom, and that motivates my students to do their best. I also have more fun with them now!"

- Ginger Walker, student at Tiger Kim's World Class Tae Kwon Do and former student of Master Shin.

"Tae Kwon Do gives me stress release, cardio vascular exercise, strength, balance and agility training! But more than physical strength, I have gained a great deal of mental strength. I learned that my mind controls more of my body than I ever knew and Tae Kwon Do requires as much mental strength as physical. From the very first time I stepped onto the mat I have been pushing myself from one new experience to another. In my opinion, the first major decision in strength building is deciding to do it, to tell yourself that you are going to be a black belt!"

- Nicole Stowe, black belt, mother of two black belts and a former student of Master Shin

"His confidence has skyrocketed! He is always so excited to go to class. Our son has learned to work hard towards the goals he wants to achieve."

- Sara Sharkey (son Parker), one of Master Shin's former students

"Do it! It's a great opportunity to meet people. It's a great physical workout, and Master Shin is awesome. I've never had more fun."

- Chris Neil, former student of Master Shin

"We have noticed more focus on tasks she is being asked to complete in school and at home."

- Banks Ramage (daughter Grace) , a former student of Master Shin

"Being together with your child as you go through the classes and test for belts give you both something to talk about and strive for. This is a great experience to share with your child."

- Banks Ramage (daughter Grace), former students of Master Shin

"If you’re a mom of boys, it is hard to find sports to do with your sons! For me, Tae Kwon Do is perfect… I have been able to spend a great deal of time with them and we have so much fun! They have been so supportive of me, helping me practice my forms and self-defense. Not many kids get to say, 'Hey Mom, I need to practice my self-defense, can I throw you on the ground a couple more times?' Yes, mine sure do and they love it!"
