From Our Editors
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
We are a fully professional, full time Martial Arts Academy with classes for all ages including specialized programs for young children and students ages 55+. Our focus is on student development in a structured, safe but mostly fun environment. We are the only full time school in the Okanagan that is certified and recognized by the International Taekwon-Do Federation (www.tkd-itf.org)
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
All of our instructors have been training in Martial Arts and Taekwon-do specifically from a very young age. Our goal is to share Taekwon-Do with as many people as possible. Our goal is to enhance our member's lives through Taekwon-Do, Self defence and fitness training.
What do you love most about your job?
This job allows myself and our instructors to impact lives in a positive manner both inside and outside of our facility (dojang). We get to work everyday with people to achieve their goals and achieve things greater then they had ever imagined. It's the greatest job in the world.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
We have several stories about how we have helped kids and adults achieve their goals and have had a positive impact on their lives. Here is one of our many testimonials: “Can’t say enough good things about Sundance Taekwon-Do and the positive influence it has had on my girls. My 14 year old daughter is a first degree Junior Blackbelt and my 11 year old is a red belt, black stripe. They have trained for 6 years and still love it. Leadership, discipline, perseverance…and it makes me feel good that they will go out into the world knowing how to defend themselves. I never really envisioned how tkd would support their character development, but it really has. To all parents considering trying it out for their little ones, give it a go. My girls still think it is fun! ” – Kelly (Parent).
