Flexible Class Times
We realize that today’s families have busy schedules, and adding something new may be challenging. That’s why we’ve designed our schedule with flexible class times in order to accommodate as many people’s schedules as possible. Unlike other activities, you don’t have to come to class at the same day and time each week.

In addition to our regular classes we host numerous events for our students, including our Halloween party, holiday event, family picnics, movie nights, Heart of Massachusetts tournament, and more. The key to every event is that our students and families have fun with their Tae Kwon Do Family.
