What We Do

Tae Kwon Do is a Korean martial art known for its graceful and powerful kicks, punches, blocks, and footwork. At River Valley Tae Kwon Do we train in the Ji Do Kwan style as practiced by the late Master Choi Bong Young. This is a technically rigorous but noncompetitive interpretation of training in Tae Kwon Do.

Ji Do Kwan is challenging, beautiful, and can be used as an effective form of self-defense. Workouts are physically demanding, but because teaching starts slowly and gains intensity gradually, beginners develop the necessary strength, endurance, flexibility, and balance over time.

You can find our school at three locations in New England. Beginners are welcome to attend any class. Please feel free to drop in if you have any questions or if you’d like to watch or try our martial arts classes in Northampton or Florence, Massachusetts or in Chester, Vermont.

Try a Class, Join Us

Starting Tae Kwon Do training is easy! Just stop by one of our locations in clothes that won’t restrict your movement, and introduce yourself.

Your first class is free. No hard feelings if you don’t want to come back—but you just might discover something that will be challenging and satisfying for years.
