In almost every city in this country, you can throw a stone and quickly hear its ping against the windows of a martial arts studio. What makes this school different? MooShim Tae Kwon Do is not only unique in that it is owned by two women, but also in that while it teaches a traditional martial art, our school encourages openness, a sharing of ideas across the martial arts spectrum. With over 25 years combined experience, Amy Steiner and Tessin Bozard, have seen Tae Kwon Do from many different perspectives. They have not only become masters in this discipline, but they have watched their own children train and receive their black belts.
They have also been instructors at several dojangs and have had the wonderful opportunity of sharing the knowledge of TKD with students from every walk of life, teaching young children through seniors. They have worked extensively with special needs students and believe that anyone who has the desire to train in the martial arts can do so, no matter what they may face in their every day life. Indeed TKD, because of its ability to improve focus and physical agility, flexibility, and strength, a difference can be felt even after a short time of training.
We hope to encourage students to not only reach black belt level but to take advantage of the opportunity to experience the greater Tae Kwon Do community. Amy and Tessin have benefited from training in several dojangs and by sharing knowledge with many Masters and Grandmasters. They have also derived great value from training in Korea, the birthplace of Tae Kwon Do, studying the culture and language in order to deepen their practice.
Traditional Tae Kwon Do is more than just a physical pursuit. It is a philosophical discipline, encompassing the five tenets, Courtesy, Integrity, Perseverance, Self-Control, and Indomitable Spirit.
Our mission is to infuse those tenets with passion, community, and leadership, creating an experience that will enrich a student’s life in Tae Kwon Do and beyond.
