You have our full attention

We’re a full time martial arts school

Taekwondo has been our full time job since we opened in the summer of 1995. We’ve grown a lot in the following two decades. And have been changing lives through martial arts ever since.

Our school has over 160 students and we have classes every single weekday!  We couldn’t be more proud of the work that we do. And just like you, we are always trying to improve and grow a little bit each and every day.

Our core values

At the core of everything we teach here at Concord Taekwondo America, these tenets of taekwondo are in the spotlight.

We recite these tenets at the beginning of class. Students are expected to demonstrate them wherever they go – during class, in school, and at home.

Master Taekwondo Instructor, Sean Baxter

Meet our chief instructor

Sean Baxter

“I couldn’t be more proud to be chief instructor and owner of Concord Taekwondo America.  We’ve been changing lives with Taekwondo for over 25 years. With many more years ahead of us, I can say it has been a truly grand experience. And one I wouldn’t trade for anything.”

A little about the instructor

“In 1984, The Karate Kid was released in movie theaters.  That fall, I found myself in karate class, wearing a white belt, ready to learn everything there was to know about it.”

11 years, and many belts later, he founded Concord Taekwondo America.  Over the past 30 years our instructor team  have taught over 3,000 students. 

In 2023 he was awarded the rank of 8th degree master instructor with Taekwondo America.

In my younger years, he served in the US Army as a 11B rifleman and anti-armor specialist in the 113th Mechanized Infantry Company at Fort Dix. In college he studied computer science, and spent many years in the IT industry, asking people “Have you tried turning it off and on again?”

And when he’s not teaching Taekwondo, he can often be found training people in proper firearms handling as a Certified NRA, USCCA, and SC/NC DOJ Concealed Carry Instructor.

“It’s not the years of training that define us, but the minds we help guide that make us who we are”
