A BLACK BELT ISN’T SOMETHING YOU WEAR, IT IS SOMETHING YOU BECOME

Martial arts training at Champion Taekwondo is not just about the physical skills, it includes development of character. All students are expected to observe the five tenets of courtesy, integrity, perseverance, self control, and indomitable spirit both on and off the mat.

Our Mission

We encourage developing a deeply personal practice of martial arts.
We support that process so each person learns to be accountable for developing themselves.
We believe in the growth of the individual and the effect it has on our community.
We train people who strive to maximize their potential for the benefit of those around them.
We live our core tenets of courtesy, integrity, perseverance, self control, and indomitable spirit.
We serve by pointing our hearts and minds toward this common purpose.
We prevail by building a legacy of meaningful relationships and sustainable character foundations that transcend martial arts training and give us the awareness to advance ourselves and the world.

“We love how Master Jenn at Champion Taekwondo Baxter emphasizes leadership no matter the age. As Kaitlin watched one of the younger students lead class exercises this afternoon, she quietly said ‘Even little people can do big things.’ Yes sweetie, they can!”

Signing him up at Champion TKD is possibly the best thing I have done for my son’s overall growth, coordination, and confidence.

Taekwondo has made a difference in my life because it has taught me to make the right choices at home and school. It has helped me feel safe through learning self defense and also make me fitter. Master Jenn gives me personal attention in trying to meet my goals, like showing me how to do push-ups properly.

Taekwondo has helped me in many ways like sticking up for someone getting bullied, how to defend myself, and helping others. I love helping with Taekwondo class and new students, seeing what their problems are and solving them. Taekwondo has changed me, I’m nicer, stronger, and better!

MEET MASTER JENN

“I was out of shape. I had a weight problem as a child and a young adult. I wanted to change that, but I didn’t understand how. I knew I needed to exercise and eat right, but I hated going to the gym. I felt out of place. I knew I needed to do something different. I decided to try martial arts.”

Hello, I’m Jennifer. I’m a professional martial arts instructor and studio owner. This is the story of why I got involved in martial arts and why I’ve stayed with it so long.

I grew up south of Charlotte when it was farms, not suburbs. My first interest in martial arts was sparked watching Wonder Woman on television. I remember being frustrated when my tin foil wrist bands didn’t hold up to my vigorous bullet deflecting practice. There wasn’t much around back then in the way of martial arts studios, and I didn’t start formal training until the fall of 1996. I was 22. I was overweight and overwhelmed. I had a six month old baby daughter. I had been overweight and overwhelmed as long as I could remember and I wanted to change. I was desperate for change. I wanted better for my daughter.
