    Master Sonja Janssen is the best TKD Instructor!

    12-03-2018 by Lee.B

    The environment is friendly, welcoming, and extremely positive. I can confidently say this school is a quality Taekwondo club. They teach and develop excellent programs for children and for adults too. Master Sonja is very knowledgeable and spends time to make sure each student understands and are making progress.. Master Sonja has monthly goals to teach the students different values like respect and complimenting people. This is a great Taekwoddo school and if definitely worth checking out! I recommend Taekwondo Koryobop to everyone. I have been to other Taekwondo schools, but Master Sonja Janssen is simply the best! a NO. 1 Taekwondo School.

A true Taekwondo lady with amazing Taekwondo experience and background! She is so great with kids. She has taught me not only great Taekwondo skills, but most importantly life skills, discipline, confidence, strength and have found with Koryobop an amazing family and friends… It is not only a Taekwondo club, but also we are a real happy Taekwondo family. The Master instructors, Master Sonja Janssen-Sahebzad and Master Abraham Janssen are very encouraging and amazing. Koryobop Taekwondo is truly the BEST Martial arts school. Their students come first! Master Sonja and Master Abraham are both very professional and they love what they do! The positive energy and enthusiasm and discipline given are so beautiful. I would recommend Taekwondo Koryobop the fullest, they are the best World Taekwondo school to go to!!! I am very grateful to be part of Taekwondo Korybop.
