Welcome to Empower Taekwondo

By incorporating a balance of traditional and modern Taekwondo, Empower Taekwondo delivers classes for children as young as three to adults of any age, at our dojo in New Bern, North Carolina.

Taekwondo is physical training for self-defense that also builds the positive character traits of respect, courtesy, and perseverance.
