Bakersfield welcomed Tae Ryong Taekwondo School and 7th Degree Certified Black Belt (Kukkiwon) Master Hyo Bang in November of 2008. The studio is conveniently located in Northwest Bakersfield on the corner of Hageman and Calloway overlooking the beautiful Riverlakes Golf Course. Word has spread quickly of Tae Ryong’s commitment to excellence and Master Bang’s superior quality of instruction. Preschoolers through adults currently enjoy the engaging, gratifying and challenging classes offered. 

What makes us different from other Bakersfield taekwondo schools? Tae Ryong is committed to making every individual reach his or her potential both physically and mentally. To Master Bang, life-skills training are equally important as martial arts training. This creates an environment where students are expected to apply responsibility, confidence, focus, loyalty, leadership, and perseverance not only to their training, but to school and work as well. Stop by to see what you’ve been missing and become part of the Tae Ryong Family!

Little Dragons

4-6 years old

This is our “Pre-K” into the regular Taekwondo program. The Little Dragon’s mission is Character Development and building a positive Teacher – Student relationship. We use the tools of kicking and punching to excite and motivate children to enjoy discipline, respect, and structure. We also introduce “achievement-based learning” by rewarding positive behavior daily.

Focus: attention span development, following directions, coordination, and self-control.

Graduating from this class indicates the child is ready to begin the journey to Black Belt!

Tae Ryong -
Gigantic and Growing

7-12 years old

Along with self-defense techniques, Taekwondo students have daily training in Courtesy, Integrity, Self-control, Perseverence, and Indomitable Spirit. These tenets make up an individual with unshakeable character and confidence when confronted with adversity.

Like a “Gigantic and Constantly Growing Dragon,” every student has the opportunity for growth and that potential is infinite. All you need is to set your goal, work hard for it, and never give up along the way. Our goal is symbolized with a Black Belt.

Traditional TKD

Taekwondo, translates to The Philosophical Way of Kicking and Punching”.  Rich with History, Taekwondo is unique in that it is the most popular Martial Art in the world and continues to evolve.  Over 200 countries and 8 million people worldwide are currently practicing Taekwondo.

Mastery of anything begins with self and that is what Taekwondo aims to achieve.  The cultivation of oneself through physical training and mental discipline will give your life focus and balance.

The wide breadth of techniques incorporated in Taekwondo practice makes it inclusive and safe for all ages and physiques to begin and strengthen toward confident Black Belts.  

Adult HIIT Fit

HIIT, or high-intensity interval training, is a training technique in which you give all-out, one hundred percent effort through quick, intense bursts of exercise, followed by short, sometimes active, recovery periods. This type of training gets and keeps your heart rate up and burns more fat in less time. Our HIIT training incorporates TKD moves, including kicks and punches.
