Spirit + Dedication = Harlem TKD.

Master Fall's spirit and dedication to his students is unsurpassed. As a returnee to martial arts I was in search of a class where I could rediscover the spiritual connection I once had with the sport. Master Fall has gently coaxed me back to form with humor and persistence - I'm pretty sure I am one of his clumsiest students :-) The camaraderie in the dojang makes every class worth going to no matter the day I've had or the weather outside.

Should you come and join us? Yes! Aside from the benefits physical exercise you will have a great time at Harlem TKD. Robin N

There are few places where you can receive true value in the things you learn while maintaining an environment where everyone recognizes they have equal value. Harlem Taekwondo has proven to be such a place in my eyes. The attention to each student and the open, honest feel of the staff make this more than just a place to workout. It approaches the intimacy of a family.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

very friendly, knowledgeable and showed genuine interest in the development of their students

One World TKD has become a family for me. The people are supportive - every class/test you feel the energy of the students - knowing they want you to succeee. When you work hard you can feel their smiles, and when you have a tough patch they are there to cheer you on. This feel of family and support comes from the top down - the management and staff recognize that there is strength in groups - but each individual plays an important role. People are not comapared by their physical strength or flexibility - but by their spirit, openess, eagerness and ability to laugh at ourselves.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

empower the children and youth of Harlem. The program instills respect for both yourself and others - where age and race are not factors - I have seen children flourish after a few short weeks in this program.
