US TaeKwonDo Academy Programs

We are one of the premier martial arts school in the state.  We were runner-up at the 2014 SC State Taekwondo Championship, and our school is currently the 2015 State Champions.  We teach quality programming in tae kwon do (taekwondo is also known as “Korean karate”) to students from the following areas:

-Irmo, SC

-Ballentine, SC

-Chapin, SC

-Columbia, SC

-Lexington, SC


We offer the following programs in one of the state’s largest taekwondo facilities:


Lil’ Champs Program:   This program is geared towards children who are 3-5 years old.  This will be a special class designed to help young children develop coordination and focus while teaching some basic tae kwon do techniques.   We incorporate plenty of games and activities to make the lessons fun and interactive for all of the children. 

Regular Classes: There is plenty to like about our classes.  With our regular classes, we offer our full curriculum to all of the students.  (Please see below for detailed information on it).  These classes are for children, teenagers and adults.  We offer special classes for children and adults as well as open classes geared towards people of all ages and family members that would like to take the classes together. 

U-Crew Teams: What is the U-Crew? The U-Crew is our competition and demonstration teams.

  • The U-Crew Competition Team is open to students that are interested in specialized classes designed to maximize everyone’s sparring skills.  This will help prepare students for tournament participation. Great sparring skills are not needed, and in fact, this team will be great for anyone who wishes to develop those skills.   Students in this team will compete locally, regionally and even nationally!
  • The U-Crew Demo Team is our school’s performance group.  We go out into the community and competitions and showcase our tae kwon do skills such as breaking, self-defense and kicking.   Students will get to learn cool, fancy kicks, learn how to act and break lots of boards! This group is the face of the school in the community.  The Demo Team will perform in such events as the Columbia International Festival and various other school/community events.
