Rising Sun Taekwondo is part of the larger Midwest Taekwondo Association (MTA). With a family friendly atmosphere, people of all ages are encouraged to become students. The emphasis is not on competition, but rather self-improvement. Each belt level is designed to be a gradual increase in physical ability and technique. Along with physical training, mental training is present. Students will gain confidence, increase respect for others, develop perseverance, and become self-aware.
