About Us Tiger World Class Tae Kwon Do Whether your goals are to improve self-confidence, fitness, self defense or to earn a black belt, Tiger World Class will take you there. Our school offers state-of-the-art facilities, highly trained instruction and an international perspective not found at other schools: a perfect balance of Asian and American cultures.
“To families considering enrolling in Tiger World Class Tae Kwon Do, I would encourage them to go to the school, talk to the masters, and observe one of the classes. We have previously tried some other activities without a good outcome, but Master Shin worked hard to build a relationship with my son to help him learn about and develop skill in Tae Kwon Do. We looked at other Tae Kwon Do schools, but his instruction was the best fit for us.” -Lisa Bowman, whose son Daniel is one of Master Shin’s former students

He has taught Tae Kwon Do in the United States since 2005. Students will not only learn traditional Tae Kwon Do techniques but will become familiar with the language and culture of Korea, the birthplace of Tae Kwon Do.
Ilho Chong, Director of Operations Born in Korea, Master Chong came to the United States as a child. Since then he has studied, taught, and competed at the state and a national level in the United States for more than 25 years.
Our Mission Our Philosophy Tae Kwon Do has a rich and varied history. It began 2000 years ago as a form of military training, developed into an Olympic sport, and has become popular throughout the world as a unique form of fitness and self-improvement. Millions of students of all ages have benefited from practicing this fascinating Korean martial art. The system of Tae Kwon Do taught at our school is the result of many years of study and experience. Our staff continues to train and research so that our center will offer the most beneficial and effective instruction to our students. We are positive you will find Tae Kwon Do to be tremendously rewarding. It will provide you and your family with greater self-confidence, increased self-discipline, and improved physical health. Attaining these benefits requires time, effort, and dedication. At times it can be challenging. Our instructors are here to help you with your commitment to excellence, and offer our knowledge to assist you.
â€œBeing together with your child as you go through the classes and test for belts give you both something to talk about and strive for. This is a great experience to share with your child.â€? -Banks Ramage (daughter Grace) , former students of Master Shin
Little Tigers Focus, friends and fun! Little Tigers Our Little Tiger program introduces preschoolers and kindergartners to Tae Kwon Do. During a 30-minute class, students gain motor skill development and a sense of confidence within our playful and positive environment. Between the fun and exercise, your child will also gain greater focus, which will carry over to home and school. Ages 4-5
â€œYour child will gain confidence and learn to be more respectful both at Tae Kwon Do and at home.â€? Sara Sharkey (son Parker) former students of Master Shin
Children’s Classes Confidence, respect and a lot of exercise! Our children’s program is focused on the core of martial arts—creating a foundation of discipline, focus, and energy that will build success for life. Students with a base in these martial arts principles will fare better socially and developmentally both at school and at home. And most importantly, they’ll learn this valuable set of skills while having fun and staying active. Ages 5-13
“It also felt like the students at the school become a real community and family. Everyone was supportive and encouraging to each other. I work from home full-time and spend the majority of my day alone. Master Shin’s Tae Kwon Do school started fulfilling an important need for me to have adult interaction during the day. It has become an important support system for me. I’ve developed friendships with the other parents and I attribute a lot of this to the way he welcomed students, introduced everyone to each other and encouraged the interaction during class.” Laura Podlasek, student of Master Shin
Adult Classes Adults gain a healthy body and piece of mind! Adult classes combine the best of several forms of physical training. Stretching and calisthenics improve flexibility and balance. Kicking drills and partner work increase endurance and timing and different forms and curriculum requirements will improve strength and muscle tone. Most adults also experience weight loss, more confidence and a great way to release stress. And, since no two classes are the same, you will experience a varied, high-energy workout that will motivate you to attend lessons regularly. Ages 14 and up
â€œI knew that I would benefit personally from improved health, but I didnâ€™t realize how it would impact my professional life. Losing weight and having more energy makes me feel better about myself, and that has carried over into my teaching. I think I am more positive in the classroom, and that motivates my students to do their best. I also have more fun with them now!â€? -Ginger Walker, former student of Master Shin.
Family Classes Families grow closer! Have fun with the entire family in one convenient location! Our 50-minute Family Classes provide the perfect opportunity to get fit, share goals, meet other friendly people and most importantly, spend time together. Our flexible classes also allow you to train based on your schedule. We also offer special opportunities designed to enhance your martial arts experience and strengthen friendships with other families.
These events include: • Tournaments • Belt Testing • Walking in the Holiday Parade • Fund Raisers for local Charities • Summer Camps • Halloween Party • Movie Night
“My sons were introduced to Tae Kwon Do when Master Shin came to their school to teach after school. They loved it and begged to take classes. Although I could see their confidence grow and see how much fun they were having, I never considered becoming a student until Master Shin encouraged me to try a class. Although martial arts was outside of my comfort zone, I tried it. We started attending the family classes. I’m so glad I did. I work and they are busy students. I cherish all those hours on the mat because we get to train, learn, exercise and have a lot of fun as a family. That was three years ago. Today, my sons are both black belts, working on their second degree and I will test for my black belt in April. Thank you, Master Shin!”Nicole, Lane and Andon Stowe, former students of Master Shin

The children had a great time and there were plenty of activities. There was none of the boredom we had experienced in the past! Her favorite part, however, was getting to spend the day with Master Shin and his staff. He is so fun and encouraging with just the right amount of discipline.

“I started Tae Kwon Do only because by daughter wanted to try it and she was too shy to go to classes alone. I thought I would stop after she became adjusted to the classes. That was almost five years ago. Today we continue to have fun, get exercise and enjoy classes with our Tae Kwon Do family.” Mariedith Appanaitis, former student of Master Shin

“I spent years denying the health benefits of exercising. I felt self-conscious while I was exercising. Everyone always told me that you have to “make” the time to exercise but I always came up with excuses. It changed when I started taking Tae Kwon Do! Master Shin always made me feel comfortable and pushed me to try harder and not give up. He never made me feel like I wasn’t capable of doing the same things as the other students. Most of all, he made it FUN! He always greeted us with a smile when we came to class and always held us accountable for the commitment we made. Now, for the first time in my life, I enjoy exercising. Even on days when I don’t feel like going to class I found myself going and I always feel better and more energized.” Laura Podlasek, former student of Master Shin
