A Chat with Midwest Taekwondo Academy
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
We teach Taekwondo purely for the joy of it. This is not our only job. We teach because we choose to. Our #1 goal is a positive atmosphere for children to learn discipline, respect, and self-defense. We have the lowest rates in town because it is not our full-time job, and we never do contracts.
What’s one tip for first-time students that will make them feel like veterans?
Everyone has a first day. Everyone starts as a white belt. Our school is like a family, and we are all there to support each other and help each other learn and grow.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
We both have been doing Taekwondo for over 20 years. We have steady full-time jobs and love to teach. When we moved to Westfield it was a long drive to our old school and we thought it would be a good idea to open our own! We keep rates low because we don’t need the income to pay our bills.
What do you love most about your job?
Everything! We love working with all different types of people and all different personalities. We love Taekwondo and everything about it. We have been doing it for many years and we enjoy sharing what I have learned to the next generation.
