Children and Adults receive the benefit of Senior Master Fry''s many years of training and experience. He is a 7th Degree Black Belt with over 30 years of dedication to teaching children and adults at all levels. Check out the Our Instructors page to learn about our experienced and professional staff.
Discipline and Self-confidence for Children and Adults
A benefit of training is improved self-confidence. Anyone can participate in Taekwondo – all at various levels of proficiency– and everyone can progress and feel a sense of accomplishment. This allows the student to gain confidence in his or her own abilities while learning to deal effectively with peers.
Women in Martial Arts
The number of women in Taekwondo has more than tripled in recent years, and today represents more than 30% of all practicing students. Much of this interest can be attributed to the nature of Taekwondo technique which can be readily adapted to a woman''s physical structure.
Who Can Benefit from Taekwondo?
You can! Taekwondo offers a "learning style" athletic activity that develops a combination of balance, coordination, and flexibility while instilling a sense of self-discipline that can carry into all aspects of life.
Instruction is beneficial to children as young as 5-years old, Pre-teens and Teenagers, Adults of all ages, and Seniors. Remember ... students progress at their own rate. One need not be an "athlete" to participate in the benefits of our Taekwondo, Hapkido or Kickboxing programs.
Beginners are enrolling every day, so whether you are a beginner in martial arts or are seeking to improve you current skills, you can find the training that you want at Master Fry Defense Systems.

May Word of Month: Believe!
“My child came here 2 years ago as a timid 10 year old...he is
now a much more confident young man, willing to stay the course thanks
to Master Fry''s Taekwondo.”
“Taekwondo has really helped my son in a number of ways. It has
improved his self-esteem, confidence, focus, and attention. He has ADHD
so I think it has improved his ability to focus on a task and pay
“I like how Master Fry Defense focuses on the whole person being a
well-rounded individual and teaches not only Taekwondo, but respect for
self, elders, peers and the community.”
“When I asked my 9-year old to describe his two years of instruction at
Master Fry Defense Systems, he said, "It''s just awesome. Thanks for
signing me up, Mom.”
“Three years ago, when we signed up, I would never have imagined that my
niece would make it to Black Belt. She is growing into a confident
young woman and learning to trust in her own talents and abilities. She
takes pride in being a young leader and someone others can look up to.”
“I''ve been taking Kick Boxing from Master Fry and
his team for over 6 years. It''s the only exercise regime that has kept
me interested, made me strong, and changed my physique. I had such great
results that I asked Master Fry to personally train me. As a motivator
he is one of the best! You WILL see significant results.”
