My son joined the club over seven years ago. I wanted for my child to have an active lifestyle. Little did I know at that time that this club would become our family. I’m confident that the discipline and structure taught in this club will give him a strong foundation to tackle any task in life.Parent
I joined Allen Taekwondo so that my first-born son and I would have something we could do together. That was nearly 15 years ago. During my journey with the club I have achieved my 4th Dan Black belt and the confidence to achieve my goals just by being myself. My three sons have achieved a copious amount of medals, regional, national, commonwealth & international titles and are becoming positive Black Male role models for their generation. We as a family, have gained an extended family in Master Richard Allen and the whole club. If I didn't join the club, I wouldn't have met my soulmate and now husband. Although, I now have my own club, I will always be an original Allen Taekwondo Academy student and very proud of it. My sons can answer for themselves, as they have gone from boys to young men within the heart of Allen Taekwondo.Tricia Hopkins: Poomsae Coach & former student
We joined the club as we were impressed by the professionalism and support shown by the coach Richard. My elder daughter is now a 2nd Dan and younger one aged 7, who started at the age of 4, is now a red belt.Parent
My children joined Allen Taekwondo in order to have the best level of training, especially that the coach is well known, and has the ability to develop high level of performance of his students.Parent
After only a short time in Allen Taekwondo Academy, my two sons have gained a lot of confidence, made new friends and also learned to have a different kind of respect. ATA taught them things that they wouldn't learn elsewhere. Master Allen and other members of the club are the best role models that I could ask for my children.Parent
