Since its grand opening in 2002, JC's TaeKwon-Do's unique style of martial arts and physical training has provided its members with more than just a great workout... its classes have fostered self-confidence, individual safety, discipline, and mental-focus.
The personable and highly-effective teaching techniques of head instructor Mr Jim Ripley, 6th Degree Black Belt, International Instructor, have brought his students to repeated local, national and international success and recognition and for those not interested in competing it has brought health, flexibility and fun.
In addition to our widely successful ITF Taekwon-Do and Little Dragons programs, JC's is proud to offer expanded programming in support of our community: a 50+ martial arts program, and a special needs martial arts program.
Located in the Sobey's Mall on South Albion Street in Amherst, JC's TaeKwon-Do can combine convenience with affordability for both our adult members who want to expand their physical training; as well as for our child members who want to increase their self-confidence, discipline, focus and overall health!
Students of JCs TaeKwon-Do have competed in every major TaeKwon-Do competition across Canada and around the world and have gained a reputation for meticulous pattern execution, and a combination of spirited, determined and focused sparring techniques. The same success can be achieved in your own personnal goals!
Our students are ambassadors of fair play and excellence. While the school is highly successful at tournaments, the most important results achieved at JC's TaeKwon-Do aren't measured in competition wins... they're measured in self-worth, self-confidence, discipline and pride.
