Master Ahn will be on vacation until Jan 4, 2021.  If you need to communicate with him prior to Jan 4, 2021, please send him an email (see section below for email address).



To help mitigate the negative societal impact of COVID 19, Ahn’s Tae Kwon Do has multiple policies in place.  

First, refrain from bringing any person to the studio currently infected with a communicable disease, or exhibiting symptoms consistent with the onset of a communicable disease.  This policy has been in place since Ahn's Tae Kwon Do first opened for business.

Second, all common surfaces are thoroughly cleaned on a daily basis.

Third, class activities have been adjusted to enable students to maintain safe distancing from one another.  

Note that Ahn’s Tae Kwon Do cannot control all movements of all children at all times.  Safe distancing can only be maintained by the combined efforts of every single child in a given class.  Do not bring your child to class if you are uncomfortable with the realities of children in a group setting.

It is not possible to maintain any sort of distancing between participants of a sparring match.  Therefore, until further notice, sparring  is not a required activity.  If you do not want your child to participate in sparring, you might decide to not bring your child to class on scheduled sparring days as sparring consumes a fair potion of class time.

If you have social distancing concerns but would still like your child to engage in martial arts training, you might consider private lessons.  Consistent with long-standing policy, private lessons involve an additional fee and there is a limited number of available time slots per week.  If you are interested, please contact Master Ahn directly to discuss private lessons.
