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.”

 Grand Master Patrick T. Steinhauser
8th 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.
