Waupaca Taekwondo Academy is a school that is focused on the student. We recognize each student as an individual with their own strengths and weaknesses. Our students understand that the most important thing about taekwondo is RESPECT. New students come into our dojang feeling welcome. Though we teach the sport of taekwondo; kicks, punches, blocks, forms, and sparring, more importantly we teach quality Character. The Eight Points of Knowledge: RESPECT, LOYALTY, WISDOM, HONOR, COMPASSION AND FORGIVENESS are 8 characteristics we strive to meet for all of us. We have classes available for our Lil Kickers, ages 4 - 7, Beginner's ages 7 & up and Advanced students, ages 7 & up that are green belt and up. We are a USA TAEKWONDO CLUB, teaching WTF style. All our black belts are Kukkiwon Certified.
