The Vision of Taylor Made Martial Arts

To give confidence to the timid and strength to the weak.
To provide this through teaching:
  • Respect - respect oneself. parents, teammates, teachers
  • Self-Discipline - the ability to control one's feelings and overcome one's weaknesses; the ability to pursue what one thinks is right despite temptations to abandon it.
  • Being a part of something bigger than self - through teamwork and accomplishing team goals. Helping the team be the best of the best.
  • Courage - the ability to act when fear is present
  • The will to succeed - when you fall, get up.
  • How to handle adversity - developing confidence to handle difficult situations
  • Integrity - doing the right thing when no one is looking
  • Personal responsibility - being self-aware, owning ones mistakes.


Tenets of Taekwondo

Courtesy is giving a bow, 
to Black Belts and teachers who show you how. 
It's doing your chores before you are asked 
and being helpful in every class. 
It's simple words like 'thank you' and 'please,'
and never, ever to hurt or to tease. 

Integrity  the simple rule, 
of being honest at home and in school.
It's never cheating when taking a test, 
or thinking you're better than all of the rest. 
To lie or to steal just wouldn't be right, 
so try to be honest with all of your might. 

Perseverance  is telling your heart, 
you're going to finish the things that you start. 
It's refusing to quit when the going gets tough, 
or starting to cry when the sparring gets rough. 
It's not giving up on the board you must break, 
no matter how many tries it may take. 

Self-Control states a simple fact, 
you should always think before you act. 
It's standing in class, not a muscle you twitch, 
even if only to scratch an itch. 
It's counting to ten when things make you mad, 
then walking away because fighting is bad.

Indomitable Spirit is showing no fear, 
and not freezing up when trouble is near. 
It's knowing in life there's some risks you must take, 
and along the way some mistakes you may make. 
It's standing up proudly and thinking with glee, 
I'm OK! I can do it! I believe in me!


What Students Say

  1. Continuing my Taekwondo journey after several years off. I appreciate the traditional Taekwondo that Mr Taylor teaches in his class. When my daughter is old enough, she will be joining! Fantastic training by Mr Taylor.

  2. I can't tell you how much I have enjoyed Jerry's (and now Taylor's) kickboxing classes. I originally walked into class 7 weeks postpartum and completely out of shape after our daughter's stillbirth. I was broken and shattered into a million pieces. This class, the instructors, and group of people helped put the new me back together. I found support, new friends, and learned new things that helped me work towards gaining my strength back. All of the instructors are wonderful and they take the time to show you the techniques so you can enjoy the workouts. Be prepared to sweat and work hard. We do lots of ab work, stretching, tons of different kicks and punches, and drills to improve speed, footwork, and agility. Everyone is very friendly and available to help, plus you can work at your own pace which suits a variety of fitness levels. Each session is different so you'll never get bored. You'll love the results! I always leave class with a smile on my face. Come join us! Just like Taylor says, "YOU CAN DO IT!"

  3. I came in as a COMPLETE beginner and incredibly out of shape! The instructors are very good at giving direction and making sure your technique is correct! The atmosphere is fast paced and fun and there is plenty of room, so you don't feel like you're limited in your movements! The students are super friendly and welcoming and they are quick to give encouragement!! I'm constantly looking forward to the next class and to bettering myself!
