Starting at age three, aspiring taekwondo masters can enroll at Core Taekwondo and begin accumulating skills from Master Meggie Presti. Meggie, a former elementary school teacher, founded the studio to share her love of the Korean martial art with students of all ages. There are two kids' programs, an adult program, and a family program, in which parents and kids train together. Those who want to share their skills with the world are in luck—Core regularly dispatches its students to perform at events such as the San Mateo Lion Dance Festival, where the mats are so springy they launch pupils into venues three towns over. During summer, the school's title discipline joins swimming, field trips, and other outdoor activities in keeping day campers blissfully busy. In 2013, the studio earned accolades from Bay Area Parent and San Francisco A List, which named Core a "Family Favorite" and the "Best Martial Arts School."
