Our school offers rigorous self defense classes but also a unique guided program for Korean language, history, and culture.
What You'll Get
We study Ji Do Kwan, a noncompetitive style of Tae Kwon Do. Our school is traditional & rigorous but also welcoming. We only offer classes for adults, so the atmosphere is ideal for professionals and lifelong learners who seek an authentic cultural experience in addition to challenging martial arts and self defense training. Our school is useful for fitness and self-defense, but the people who find it most satisfying tend to be thinkers who value experiences over and beyond the physical practice.

About River Valley Tae Kwon Do
Founded in 1997, we are the oldest Tae Kwon Do school in the Northampton area and one of the oldest martial arts schools overall. We meet in a beautiful, spacious old building with hardwood floors, a former elementary school. Classes are small, so every student gets lots of individual attention, and we have four instructors with different teaching styles so you can find a good fit. We practice a challenging "old-school" style of Tae Kwon Do that has not been modernized for tournament competition or to meet Western expectations that build the ego but not the body and mind. Our martial way is not for everyone, but those who appreciate the rigorous traditional methods, and the formal but welcoming atmosphere, tend to train with us for many years.
