OUR STORY

About Us

A place to learn, train and grow.

We are the longest established martial arts school in the Durham Region.  For more than 45 years, we’ve been committed to building and developing our students to become the best they can possibly be. Many students have reported to us that their increased level of physical fitness and the confidence they’ve gained through their martial arts experience has allowed them to perform better at work, in school and at home. You will find our staff of Black Belt Instructors to be a very positive influence on your life.

Our students come to LEO WONG’S TAE KWON-DO & KRAV MAGA to study martial arts for different reasons, and each comes to us with varying degrees of ability.  While Tae Kwon-Do is known around the world as one of the most powerful forms of martial arts with its dynamic kicking and hand techniques, students easily learn at their own pace and ability level so they reach their own personal goals. Krav Maga uses natural and instinctive moves, is easily learned and is a great workout! 

At LEO WONG’S TAE KWON-DO & KRAV MAGA, we are not interested in just teaching self defense; we are interested in the complete personal development of each student.  Individual attention is a feature of each and every class, allowing all students to progress quickly and confidently toward their personal goals.  Our instructors take their responsibility seriously as role models for younger students, teaching them the importance of strong character, leadership and good values.

Our teaching concept is based on two principles:  “positive mental attitude” and “high goal setting.”  We feel so positive about our programs that we promise to give you and your family the most professional, well supervised and the highest quality classes available in any sport or Martial Art.
