The Southern California Tae Kwon Do Academy WELCOMES YOU...

“The study of Taekwondo is not the task of one day, or of one year...

It is rather the path of a life time.”

 Master Patrick Steinhauser – 7th Dan

Founder of The Southern California Tae Kwon Do Academy in 1975



Training in the art of Taekwondo is more than just kicking and punching...

It is development of a strong mind and body. Patience, concentration, attention to detail, spirit and humility are essential.
