If you’re in search of martial arts for kids, our carefully designed children’s program develops self-discipline, self-confidence, respect and self-defense. We emphasize avoidance and resolution rather than confrontation and conflict. Fighting is desired only as the last resort. Positive reinforcement along with traditional martial arts training and discipline enhance the student’s Tae Kwon-Do experience.

Unlike other schools, our students are not only required to master Tae Kwon-Do techniques but also maintain chores at home and meet their teacher’s expectations at school. As our program improves the students’ ability to focus, parents and teachers notice improved grades and concentration. Furthermore, Grand Master Gorino and Master Sharratt check with the students’ parents and teachers on a regular basis to monitor the students’ progress. All of these requirements must be met in order for students to advance to the next rank. This three-fold approach impresses upon the student that Tae Kwon-Do is not just kicking and punching but also includes being a good student, citizen, and son or daughter.

The development of self-confidence, self-discipline and self-respect gives the Tae Kwon-Do student the ability to say “NO” to negative peer pressure.


Colton started TKD at Master Gorino’s in August of 2014, a few weeks before his sixth birthday.

He had ADD, speech and reading issues and a learning disability to boot. We were told that TKD would help in all of these areas. So we signed him up, best decision we ever made! When he started, he was shy and really had little to no confidence in himself and no real friends at school. Master Gorino’s TKD helped him become strong and confident, he is definitely not shy anymore and he has made some truly incredible friends. Finally after watching Colton train for 8 years I decided to join myself. It has been life changing! I’m becoming stronger, I’m learning techniques I never thought I’d ever be able to do.

My children are excited before AND after class.

We, as parents, feel supported in raising strong and capable young adults whose integrity will contribute to the betterment of society. From excellent physical training to the instructors’ sincerity and enthusiasm to the development of respect and self-reliance, our family is convinced that Master Gorino’s TKD provides our children with an environment to thrive.
