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.


Through Tae Kwon Do my family is better able to defend itself, is in better shape, has made new friends, become more disciplined, and has grown closer.

I thought that it was for my family until about six months later when my youngest son asked why I wasn’t also in Tae Kwon Do. I decided then to join since this was one of the few activities that families can do together. I have come to know, and be friends with, many other adults in the 18 months I’ve been at Master Gorino’s. Most are in Tae Kwon Do for self-defense reasons or to get in better shape, but I joined to relate to my sons and to stay in touch with my family. Through Tae Kwon Do my family is better able to defend itself, is in better shape, has made new friends, become more disciplined, and has grown closer.

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.
