Founded with a Mission

To teach the highest quality martial arts while empowering our students with valuable skills for daily life, and contribute to a safe and peaceful community. We are committed to creating and maintaining an atmosphere of positive energy and respect in our dojang.

Master Yang’s World Class Tae Kwon Do is the leading provider of martial arts instruction for children, adults, and families in the Round Rock and Austin areas.

Head instructor Master Yang and Master Instructor Higgins both studied Tae Kwon Do directly under Grandmaster Sun Ki Chong, former US National Team Head Coach and founder of World Class Tae Kwon Do (one of the top martial arts organizations in the country, with five locations in the Buffalo, NY area and additional locations throughout the United States).

Now, with Grandmaster Chong’s support, Master Yang and Master Higgins are excited to share their knowledge and enthusiasm for Tae Kwon Do with the Round Rock and Austin communities.

Our Philosophy

Character development and leadership skills are an essential element of truly learning Tae Kwon Do. Therefore, our training includes skills valuable in daily life: cooperation, respect, self-control, focus, and confidence. The positive character traits that develop will help our students both inside and outside our Tae Kwon Do school – at home, school, work, and in life.

"Master Yang is a great role model for the kids and students”
