FAQ's

Why should I choose Authentic Taekwondo?

What are some Covid safety protocols you have in place?

We expect all members to self screen prior to arriving at the studio.  If they are not feeling well, we ask them to please stay home.

All members receive hand sanitizer upon arrival.  All members are expected to wear their mask throughout their time at the studio with the exception of when they are taking a break and drinking fluids. 

What is the cost of classes per month?

$99 per month with no contracts and no cancellation fee.  We are proud to say we are one of the best Taekwondo schools in Canada.  You will not find any other school with this quality and this price anywhere.

Are there any other Fees?

There is no registration or cancellation fees.  The only other charges you might see are Belt testing fees. 

How many classes do I have access to per week?

Students have access to unlimited Taekwondo classes per week.  However, we suggest attending classes 2 to 3 times per week.  If you're attending only once per week, it is very difficult to retain what you have learned from one week to the next.  If you're training more than 4 times per week that could result in burn out.

No, you attend as many as you like.  We ask that you use our reservation app to book your classes in advance.

What is the difference Taekwondo and Karate?

Taekwondo and Karate are the same when it comes to teaching the principles of martial arts such courtesy and integrity we must have as individuals.  However, some of the main differences are that Karate uses more hand techniques and Taekwondo uses more dynamic kicks.  Also, Taekwondo is from Korea and Karate is from Japan.  Taekwondo is an official Olympic sport.
