“When a single stone is thrown into water it creates ever increasing ripples moving outward. Similarly, we believe that helping an individual student to improve themselves physically, mentally, and emotionally has an impact that reaches beyond that student. As a result, each World Class Tae Kwon Do school and its instructors help to make the world a better place.”
Grandmaster Sun Ki Chong
Founder of Master Chong’s Tae Kwon Do
Master Chong's World Class Tae Kwon Do is the leading provider of martial arts instruction in the Buffalo, NY area. For over 25 years we have been teaching the martial art of Tae Kwon Do to children, adults, and families.
We are committed to creating and maintaining an atmosphere of positive energy and respect in our dojang.
Our goals and mission statement:
- To teach the highest quality martial arts
- To empower our students with valuable skills for daily life
- To contribute to a safe and peaceful community
When we state that our goal is to teach the highest quality martial arts, it refers not only to high standards of technical skills, but to the character development and leadership skills that are an essential element of truly learning Tae Kwon Do. Therefore, our training includes skills valuable in daily life: cooperation, respect, self-control, focus, and confidence.
We know from experience that training in Tae Kwon Do helps students in their personal and professional life. The positive character traits that develop will help them at work and school, at home and on the playing field.
