Unfortunately, we are not currently enrolling students under age 10.

Why Koval Taekwondo over other schools?

  • Small class sizes mean personal attention
  • Children are expected to train as adults.   
  • We motivate each other to be the best version of ourselves we can be.
  • Every student is challenged to reach their full potential.  You will never get bored with constant fresh material to keep students of all levels motivated to learn.
  • It is the most cost effective martial arts program you will find in the Cleveland area at $50 a month and NO colored belt test fees.
  • Low injury risk.  We train hard, but we train safe.
  • We don't hand out belts.  Belts are earned.  They take time.  The absolute minimum time to earn a black belt is 7 years regular training.   
  • Cleanliness on and off the mat  
  • You WILL know real self defense and hard training.   No Chi Strike, Dim Mak, Woo woo, or secret ninja moves.  You will get the straight knowledge of martial arts and if you work hard for it, you will become a true martial artist yourself.  
  • We aren't an MMA program where you have to worry about getting punchy or getting put through a meat grinder.  We aren't mall chain Taekwondo school where all you do is forms.   This is real martial arts for grown ups who want to train hard but still be able to work or get out of bed in the morning.
