Westcott Martial Arts is the premier martial arts school in Effingham County. Focusing on traditional taekwondo as part of the American Taekwondo Association, we train adults and children ages 6 and up for lifelong benefits. Our programs emphasize healthy physical fitness, practical self-defense techniques and strong character development in leadership, respect, dedication, self-control, and commitment to excellence. As a family-owned business, we strive to make our school warm and family-friendly. Other programs include Cardio-Kickboxing for adults (13 and up) as well as a krav-styled self-defense program.
We are located in the Goshen Commericial Park next to Baibry's Cafe, on highway 21 in Rincon. Please visit our web site at www.rinconata.com
