Welcome to JouRNeY Taekwondo, a family owned and operated martial arts business, creating tomorrow's leaders one black belt at a time. You have chosen the finest school in the area, dedicated to making your Martial Arts experience enjoyable and satisfying. We now have two locations: our original school, Karate for Kids at 12337 South Rt. 59, Plainfield, IL, and our new location, Taekwondo USA in the Restoration Christian Church, 114 Channahon St., Shorewood, IL.
Our mission is to teach students of all ages to overcome their physical, mental and emotional fears and limitations using the art of taekwondo. You will find a sense of homecoming and family at our schools. We are proud to form a triangle with you, the parent, and your child in an effort to develop a well-rounded, physically and mentally strong individual of high character and honor. Our instructors are the best. They have studied and trained for years to qualify as part of our team, and now their primary goal is to assist you in being the best you can be. Our carefully structured programs go far beyond punching, blocking, and kicking. We will help you acquire effective self-defense skills and provide you with a comprehensive, personal development program.
Although we honor Martial Arts traditions that go back centuries, we are dynamic and are constantly seeking new and innovative ways to enthuse and excite our students. At our schools we also host various activities and events for everyone's convenience and enjoyment. We have in-school tournaments, a yearly child abduction seminar, a yearly bully prevention seminar, Parents' Night Out events, summer camps, weapons training seminars, and leadership student workouts. We also offer Birthday Parties filled with exciting Martial Arts Games and a Black Belt instructor ready to teach awesome techniques to all our birthday guests.
We know that children need good role models, and positive peer pressure for success through the teen years, and adults often need an outlet for stress, and a fun way to stay fit and healthy. Working out together as a family can be fun and will bond you together during your children's formative years. Your children will emulate what you do, so pursuing a healthy lifestyle through exercise and healthy eating, as well as achieving goals in taekwondo help set the stage for future successes in the lives of your children.
