Our Philosophy

Taekwondo is an art for Self-defense, however it is about MUCH more than Blocks, Punches, and Kicks.  It is not about building a better fighter (although that does come with the training), it's about building a better PERSON!

Our Approach

Our Focus

Our programs are about Family!   Mr. Nagey believes strongly that he is simply the curator of the Do-jang (Tae Kwon Do school) and it belongs to it’s members.   We look  forward to the opportunity to add you to the NTMAA Family.
