Self-Confidence, Self-Esteem and Leadership Skills

Martial Arts for Adults

We all know that we SHOULD exercise, but the problem with most exercise programs is that they are just too BORING!

Our innovative adult martial arts program is totally different. Every movement has a purpose – a purpose that might one day save your life! Some of our students have actually been able to defend themselves from dangerous attacks, while most are grateful just knowing how to avoid trouble.

I’m very proud to say that HUNDREDS of adults in the Hanover area have a BLAST in every class while learning awesome self-defense skills and watching the pounds melt away.

Students from 18 to 80 also tell us they use the benefits of improved concentration, self-discipline, and confidence every day at home, at work, and in social situations.

Martial Arts for Kids

Our innovative martial arts program for kids can develop your child’s focus, self-esteem, self-confidence, and overall sense of purpose the way NO OTHER sport, hobby, “activity,” or program can.

We’re very PROUD to say that HUNDREDS of parents and families in the Hanover area are singing the praises of our program, and telling other parents about it every day, because they’ve seen it for themselves, too.

If you want your child to be more confident, more focused, happier, and healthier, then you owe it to yourself to come and see the difference innovative martial arts for children can make in your child.

Martial Arts for Families

Our innovative martial arts program is fun for all Hanover families!

Normally, when you enroll your child in an activity like soccer or basketball, your children participate while you are stuck on the sidelines as a spectator or maybe – if you’re lucky — as a coach. On top of that, your child might not even get to play as some of the team members get to “ride the bench.”

In our innovative martial arts program for Families, everyone participates: children, parents, and even grandparents can attend classes and progress at their own pace. In our action-packed family classes, no one sits on the bench! Children practice with other children, and adults practice with other adults. Martial arts classes are one of the only family programs where children and their parents get the same kind of healthy exercise at the same time.

The nicest part is that each member learns to RESPECT the other member’s strengths and efforts, and SUPPORT the other member’s weaknesses. They help each other when things get tough, and they celebrate each other’s victories.

After School Program

In our innovative After School Martial Arts program, children become part of our proven character development system that is LIKE NO OTHER in the Hanover area. The kids actually ENJOY learning discipline, respect, and cooperation as part of learning AWESOME martial arts skills. I know it sounds hard to believe, but our kids actually love it! They not only have found a program they don’t want to quit, they actually get upset if you take them out of class early one day!

Our parents love it, too, because their children are INSPIRED to set and achieve goals, which creates a virtual ROADMAP for a successful life!

Martial Arts for Pre-School Children

Is there really an Almost Magical Formula for Creating More Confident, More Focused, Happier, Healthier Kids in the Hanover area?

Yes! But we don’t blame you for being skeptical.

Frankly, if we didn’t see it for ourselves (nearly every day), we wouldn’t believe it either.

Our Innovative Pre-School Martial Arts Program can develop your child’s balance, coordination, focus, and self-confidence the way NO OTHER sport, hobby, “activity,” or program can.

Martial Arts Summer Camp

Our martial arts summer camp in Hanover is a safe place – your children will be PROTECTED from the kind of bad influences they might get in other places that can get them into trouble now, and may even ruin their future.

Second, they will be EMPOWERED with physical skills, but more importantly with the confidence to choose right over wrong. As they grow into those dangerous teenage years, you can rest assured that you have helped them form the strength of character needed to resist peer pressure.

Third, they’ll have FUN! We take our students out into the community on martial arts adventures to local attractions like swimming pools, parks, skating rinks, and more!

Welcome to The Best Taekwondo Lessons
in Hanover

teaching martial arts

Hi, my name is Master Steve Choi,

and I’m very PROUD that hundreds of families all over the Hanover area are singing the praises of our programs and telling their friends and neighbors how much of a positive impact it’s having on their lives.

Lion Choi's Taekwondo has become a landmark of Hanover martial arts!

Get started now and find out how you can be healthier, happier, and more confident with Lion Choi's Taekwondo training!

Physical and Mental Development

Our members tell us that they feel our school is more of an institution of self-improvement, physically and mentally, rather than “just” a gym or some “activity”.

I pride myself on helping our adult members safely build muscle, quickly burn fat, gain flexibility, and release stress in a FUN, positive, and injury-free environment! And for the children, parents all over the Hanover area give my martial arts classes credit for increasing their child’s ability to focus, building their self-esteem, and igniting a passion for self improvement they never would have expected.

Much More than “Kicking & Punching”

Although many people think the martial arts are just about fighting, the truth is that the physical “kicking and punching” are really just the “tools” that I use to teach the more important, and MUCH more valuable lessons about “yourself”.

When you train in our Hanover martial arts program (which also serves Severn, Ft. Meade, Odenton, Jessup, Elkridge, and Laurel), you take advantage of the best self-improvement system in the world.

Through the practice of physical self-defense skills, you will follow a blueprint for a successful life based on discipline, focus, and perseverance. Please take a few moments to browse this website, get familiar with us, and see the benefits of my Hanover martial arts program for yourself!
