My husband and I are so grateful to have found a program with an instructor who takes such care to support us in raising a dedicated, respectful, and honorable child.
My son has been studying with Master Gorino for 3 1/2 years, and the change we have seen in him is amazing. He is physically stronger and more flexible. He has a confidence beyond his years. He has amazing mental stamina that others his age seem not to have. For example, he worked all day at school on his mandatory state aptitude tests, and then without complaint went to the dojang and spent 2 hours rigorously being tested for and subsequently passing his black belt test qualifier! My husband and I are so grateful to have found a program with an instructor who takes such care to support us in raising a dedicated, respectful, and honorable child.
It teaches my son to defend himself, being polite to me and everyone that he knows. It also teaches him to be responsible.
When my son started Tae Kwon Do for the first time, he was scared to attend class as he continued taking class; he felt confident and love it. This motivates him to be the best. It teaches my son to defend himself, being polite to me and everyone that he knows. It also teaches him to be responsible. He even does chores around the house. Now he chooses to go to class instead of staying home playing video games.
Other than graduating with 2 master’s degrees, this has been the biggest accomplishment of my life.
About 3 years ago I started Tae Kwon Do and I weighed almost 340 pounds when I started training with Master Gorino. Not only have I been able to lose about 180 pounds with training but I have become more disciplined as well. Other than graduating with 2 master’s degrees, this has been the biggest accomplishment of my life.

A LETTER FROM MASTER GORINO
Where is your victory? It’s easy to find when you win. It’s harder to find when you lose. You probably don’t even look for your victory after a loss. Before embracing Martial Arts, I didn’t always. It’s easy to become too focused on what we didn’t gain. Losing is something we’re taught to avoid but losing isn’t the worst thing that can happen to you.
Pil-Sung means “certain victory.” Certain victory means harvesting a win out of everything, especially when life doesn’t favor you. It means using every circumstance as a teacher, a path to becoming who you are yet to be.
Register for our trial program and see how Tae Kwon-Do can help you become whatever it is you’re yet to be.
