Established in 1982, Tae Ryong Taekwondo School – Camarillo was the FIRST Taekwondo School in Ventura County. When Grand Master Shin first arrived to the United States he only knew Koreatown in Los Angeles. One day he got lost on the highway and found himself in the beautiful City of Camarillo. He knew this was the perfect place to plant roots for what would grow to be Tae Ryong Taekwondo School.
Today, Tae Ryong – Camarillo is 5,000 square feet and is “The place for Martial Arts in Camarillo”. There are 2 training floors, Tiger Room and Dragon Room, fully equipped and padded for safety, so it can accommodate hundreds of students in a class period. Centrally located in Camarillo on Pickwick Dr. and Arniel Rd., Tae Ryong Taekwondo School has taught over 60,000 Children and Adults at this one location alone.
“It makes me very happy to see children I used to teach are now bringing their children for me to teach.” – Grandmaster Yong Shin

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.
