Kang’s has an outstanding reputation for producing great competitive martial artists, with many state champions, nationally ranked competitors, and even a U.S. national team captain.

The central theme to learning Tae Kwon Do at Kang’s Black Belt Academy is that there is no hurry.  Some martial art programs rush students through with expensive belt tests every month, we believe that it is better to spend a year making a great green belt rather than a sloppy black belt.
