About Chung Do Kwan Taekwondo

Chung Do Kwan Taekwondo came under the instruction of Michael Catron in the summer of 1995. Mr. Catron’s vision of teaching a comprehensive blend of traditional Taekwondo forms and discipline while including instruction in techniques from other styles and adapting instruction to meet the needs of each individual student has driven the direction of the dojang ever since. Mr. Catron’s background in diverse martial arts, Asian culture and history, and emphasis on power, balance, and flexibility partnered with Ms. Catron’s experience in cardio-vascular conditioning, exercise science, and nutrition and wellness provides a well-rounded research and experience-based curriculum.
