left us a 5 star review

My son has thrived at Mr.Baxter’s school! He started at 6 year old. He will soon be achieving his first degree black belt as a disciplined, fit, and dedicated nine year old. Wonderful facility, caring and well trained staff, no contracts, flexible class schedules, and optional National and Regional tournaments.

Great place, all the instructors have done really well with our kids

My 6 year old son has been going here for a month and loves it. Something about Taekwondo brings out discipline and coordination from him that I didn't know was there. One thing to note: the level of difficulty on the adult classes is quite a bit higher (I don't know why that surprised me), so if you go to those, be ready for a more demanding experience. Still very enjoyable, but prepare to sweat.

This is a great place where children can learn Taekwando and good life skills. The instructors have infinite patience and are so good with the children.

Great team of instructors, really care about the students no matter of age, or gender. They definitely respect the traditions of taekwondo.

I love everything about this facility...we recently relocated from another state and finding my son an after school activity was key...we shopped around, but Concord Taekwondo America was the best fit...all of the staff are super nice and all of the students are very respectful...my son absolutely LOVES it...and the price is VERY reasonable...couldn't ask for anything more!!!!!

Awesome Instructors!! The whole family attends CTA and we have learned so much.

Great way to get fit and learn new skills! Also builds confidence and character.

I love Concord Taekwondo America! All the instructors have the patience of a saint working with young kids! I’m thankful for this program!

My 2 sons and my daughter absolutely love it here!

We love everything about Concord Taekwondo! All of the instructors are patient and work with our son to meet the expectations so he can be successful.

If you are looking for a martial arts school with instructors that care about you and your progress, I highly recommend Concord Taekwondo! I started Taekwondo here in the summer of 2018 and I have shown so much personal growth since then. I've become happier, and my social skills have improved. The instructors are so friendly and supportive of everyone who walks through the door. I feel like I'm part of a big family! I am really enjoying my time here at Concord Taekwondo.

Excellent people and environment. Everyone is very friendly and are very effective at teaching. My son loves to go to class and learn!

Amazing instructors who truly care about your child. My son loves it here and his self esteem is getting better and better everyday. We have been coming for one month now and what a different. I highly recommend this facility for boys and girls of all ages!!

It is amazing there that is whereI go

I've been going to classes at Concord Taekwondo America for almost 2 years now. They are professional and strive for excellence. The instructors are always encouraging and helpful. I recommend them to anyone I know who might want to improve their physical activity level and do something rewarding and fun!

Concord TKD is a first rate Martial Arts school. Of you are willing to work for each belt you will have earned it with a sense of pride. The instructors teach serious martial arts, but still manage to make it very fun! Mr. Baxter has devoted himself to being the best Master instructor he can be. High standards and integrity are the norm. I earned my black belt there and made the school an integral part of raising my kids and it has carried them well into adulthood.

Attending as an adult. The teachers are attentive and patient. They care just as much about learning the art themselves as they do about teaching you. Highly recommended.

Great place, I highly recommend!! Staff are friendly, and always there if you need help. People of all ages and exspirience are welcome; they are patient, and kind if you make a mistake. The facility is clean, and everything is kept in order. I've really enjoyed my time here. 👍👍

It feels like family here.

My daughter has learned so much here. She enjoys taekwondo and looks forward to going to learn. She has made wonderful friends too. And the instructors work hard with the students to make sure they learn their forms the correct way. Everyone is really friendly.

Best place for youngsters to learn disepline and respect as well as self defense skill.

We started our 5, almost 6, year old son at Concord Taekwondo about 3 months ago and can’t say enough good things about it. We wanted him in an environment where he could have fun, but also and most importantly, we wanted a boost in his self-confidence. In just 3 short months, he is now bursting with pride and self-confidence! That’s just the top of the iceberg, though, as we’ve also noticed a positive change in behavior and increased attention span! All of these things make for one happy mom! Definitely money well spent! Thank you, Concord Taekwondo!

Our son is 6 and all of the instructors take a lot of patience and time to ensure the little ones have a good class each week. I've recommended Concord Taekwando to several other parents. Classes for the beginners are every night so chosing one easily fits into your schedule. All staff is helpful and approachable and it has been an overall excellent experince.

My daughter has been here for 3 years and has grown so much. She was very shy and timid and Mr. Baxter’s school , instructors and students have all helped her become a confident young woman!

My daughter started there first a little over 3 years ago, she has been very successful in her journey thanks to great instructors who take the time with kids to help them get over hurdles they may face on their journey. The classes at Concord TKD helped her improve her fitness level and it has also helped her in other activities as well. She is more focused due to TKD. My husband and I started attended class as well after a free trial class. It is something we can all do together and helps our family remain active. Concord TKD students are successful at regional and national tournaments due to the high level instruction we receive in class.

Concord TKD isn't only for children, but for adults too! That’s just one of the many things I love about this school. They have caring instructors, respectful students. They have fun activity’s that also help you improve.

What an awesome experience!! Top shelf instructors with the skills and knowledge to take your body to the next level. It’s a beneficial and educational environment for men and women and children to grow mentally and physically!! Highly recommended.

The teachers at Concord TKD are top-notch. This is a great school for children and adults alike. They nurture confidence in their students while also providing an appropriately challenging curriculum.

Amazing, patient, and knowledgeable instructors. They are passionate about teaching and helping kids learn all their techniques to succeed with every color belt their earn. But it isn’t just about learning techniques...kids also learn confidence, disciple, focus and so much more! The classes are engaging and fun. It has been great for my son to be able to participate and continue learning with their online class options this year. I highly recommend this school for all ages!

Awesome staff and atmosphere, instructors are great with the kids. My baby looks forward to coming to class.The location is always neat and clean. Mr. Baxter is a great 👍 👌 person to do business with.

It’s been a fun experience so far. Able to learn in a supportive environment.

Great people, truly care about the students and take pride in what they do.

Very knowledgeable instructors. And very patient. I would highly recommend.

I go here! I've been here for 7 years, the instructors are amazing with everyone. They even stay back to help whoever wants and needs it.

I have had a relationship with Concord TaeKwonDo America for the past 22 years. I have gained invaluable self defense and empowerment skills. Come try it out.....and you too may find a new sport that provides you a lifelong outlet for fitness.

We love Concord TKD! My son’s instructor is so wonderful with the kids and he has learned a lot and really enjoys it.

My daughter and I totally enjoy Taekwondo classes! The trainers, front desk and Mr.Baxter are all amazing! In addition to the classes this feels more like family. My daughter is learning so many defense mechanism and discipline as well. I am truly thankful to have found Concord Taekwondo America! My daughter looks forward to being an instructor some day! How exciting!

I am a student at Concord Taekwondo, and have been enjoying every minute of it. Nice atmosphere, kind and disciplined environment. Detailed and thorough guidance. Works well for kids and for older folks like myself. What I like the most is that it is not a "mac-dojo". Also, you can try a free practice before you commit.

This place is amazing so is the teachers it has helped my daughter and my son so much and has me and my husband as we do it as a family we highly recommend this place to any one .

Super friendly. Works very well with children and special needs. Amazing staff.

Concord Taekwondo America is bar none the best Dojo. My grandson started classes in late December. His statement to me on February 1, 2016 was how much he enjoyed going to these classes. He stated to me that since he began the classes his temper was not as bad and he did not feel as angry. Taekwondo in itself is excellent. When Taekwondo is married up to a more than superb Dojo Master, Master Baxter, and exceptional Instructor's it is a win/win for any student. My grandson is learning more than martial arts as he is progressively overcoming inward issues. Thank you Master Baxter and your entire staff for pouring yourself into your students. What my grandson is learning he will carry through out his entire life. Anyone considering a Dojo will not make a mistake by enrolling at Concord Taekwondo America!! I salute Concord Taekwondo America!! Elaine M Simpson

The school is always buzzing with positivity. From the moment you're greeted at the door to the moment you leave. You can hold your head up high when you tell others you go here. You learn something new about yourself and what you're capable of every day.

I can't say enough great things about this place. My 5yr old Daughter, formerly shy, continues to progress in her overall confidence. She loves going to martial arts classes! The Instructors are thorough & attentive with all the Students. The Families are inviting and the atmosphere is supportive of every Kid to excel. I highly recommend scheduling a consultation with Mr. Baxter & his Team to discuss enrollment for You & Your entire Family!!

The entire staff, students and parents have made our transition from Chicago a very welcoming experience. We are glad to be a part of the family!

Amazing place. Mr. Baxter and his team care about what they do and it shows how much they care about the kids. My kids are happy coming here and so am I.

Sabom Baxter has to be one of the most engaging and encouraging teacher I have met, more encouraging than some parents than I know. I am thankful for his heart, and passion he gives the kids at Concord Taekwondo.

Love Concord Taekwondo. I've been a student here for over a decade from my adolescence to adulthood. Mr. Baxter has taught me lessons that has gone beyond the workout floor. A great place for children and adults as well. Recommend anyone to go.

We could not be any happier with our experience here. Great people, great atmosphere.
