10 Years-How Far We Have Come

10 Year Anniversary
As of today we have been open 10 years!
It has been such a tremendous journey.  We have grown to have over 200% more mat space and no longer solely occupy our humble Quonset hut, grown over 500% in number of students, and brought our own 2 children into our big, beautiful TKD family.  We have both given up other jobs and now live our crazy Taekwondo life full time (not that It wasn't full time even when we were working other jobs).
We have loved, laughed, worked, cried and Taekwondoed with thousands of you over this decade and are so grateful for the times we have shared.  Our lives are immeasurably full and rich because you choose to put in the effort to make Taekwwondo, and us, part of your lives.  We We thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for giving us the opportunity to influence the direction your life paths have taken.  We feel honored to spend our lives doing what we love with all of you.

We would like to give a very special thanks to a number of students who have been with us our entire existence and are so grateful for the dedication that they show to Missoula Taekwondo Center and for making the martial arts a priority in their life journey.  Thank you Black Belts.

We hope that we will have many years of sweating, laughing and learning on the mat with our current students and that 10 years from now we can look back on our journey shared and find that many of the faces here in 2022 are here today.

Thank you all!

We would love for you to write your getting started story.  Please write it down and drop it in the slot or post it on Facebook.  We want to hear why you started, why you stayed and why you may have almost quit.
