New Taekwondo school opens in Haywood

Written by 

out taekwondoA new taekwondo school had opened in Clyde offering classes for preschoolers through adults.


The SafeKids USA/Blue Dragon Taekwondo School offers high quality, basic self-defense training through the use of Takewondo, the ancient Korean fighting art.

The owner, Marshall Hale, is a 4th Degree Black Belt self-defense instructor certified by World Taekwondo Federation.

“We have been together as a group for over five years now and we are much more than Taekwondo, we are more like a Taekwondo Family, and that’s our theme,” Hale said. “I feel a sense of belonging and happiness here, and this is what is conveyed to our kids and adults. By getting the most out of my students, they develop confidence, and that lasts a lifetime.”

Classes are available for adults and children. Family packages are also available.
