Please Note: this program is run independently of the Faith East Community Center. Questions should be directed to Melissa Templeton.

The FCC Martial Arts Program is intended as a family-oriented time of exploring the Martial Arts, and family participation is encouraged. Taekwondo is the Korean martial art that is used as the foundation for the Faith Community Center Martial Arts Program. 

Our Martial Arts Program is biblically based and refrains from teaching any Eastern mysticism which may be commonly associated with the martial arts. Martial Arts is a great way to get fit in all aspects of your physical and mental well-being:  flexibility, cardio-vascular, self-defense, awareness, focus, respect, honor, persistence, coordination, agility, and even weight loss.

Format and Schedule

Our program is based on an 8 to 10 week cycle.  New students are only taken at the beginning of each cycle, and can graduate into the next level at the end of cycle. There are usually 4 or 5 cycles per year depending on holidays and scheduling conflicts.
