Welcome to Tae Ryong Taekwondo-Washington. We are a new school to the Port Orchard area, but we are not new to the martial arts community. Master Kelly Rogers (4th Degree Black Belt) began her martial arts career at the Tae Ryong Headquarters in Camarillo, CA. Through the extensive training in the martial arts and in managing the headquarters, Master Rogers is honored to have the opportunity to bring Tae Ryong to the beautiful state of Washington. Tae Ryong means constantly growing dragon and you are invited to come grow with us.

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!

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.
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.
