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, and on Saturday too! 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.

We’re in Concord

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 every single 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 20 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 me…

I started martial arts in the 1984, the same year The Karate Kid was released in theaters.  11 years late, I founded Concord Taekwondo America and have taught over 2,500 students.  In September of 2017 I attained the rank of 7th degree black belt in Taekwondo.

I’m a Certified NRA Pistol and NC DOJ Concealed Carry Instructor. Also, I have an affinity for well-made backpacks and tactical flashlights.  In the U.S. Army I served as a rifleman and anti-armor specialist in the 113th Mechanized Infantry Company in NJ.

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