  “Greatest TaeKwonDo Studio in North Texas... Most Respectful,Knowledgable,Caring and Talented Instructor. Family Atmosphere, lots of Great Talent at this School..!!”

~Jimmie Campbell

“The work he does is amazing. I have watched this man take children with disabilities in their thinking and coordination and safely turn them into outcome oriented, self motivated leaders and I have only been with the school just over 2 years. The way he thinks and the way he ensures their safety is rather outside the box, while empowering them....”

~Alesia Dick

  “We are grateful that we have Mr. Strickland's School of Taekwondo in our community. For more than a decade he produces children with confidence and integrity. He is a great teacher and a role model for today's youth.” 

~Richard Young & Family

   “I have been a part of Mr. Strickland’s school for going on 6 years now and look forward to many more.  My three boys also attend his school and having this experience with them is immeasurable. They have benefited in numerous ways having Mr. Strickland as their instructor.  I see it in their school work, other sports they play, how they handle difficult situations, how they interact with their peers and their determination to be the best they can be. As for me – it makes me smile…big!  TaeKwonDo is a continuous learning experience coupled with a lot of fun. Mr. Strickland is an excellent instructor and it is evident in the many black belts he has trained who go on to open their own schools. There is something very unique about Mr. Strickland’s school – it’s family.”       

~Carey Lynn Bushnell & Boys

    “Our son has been at Strickland's TKD since he was 5 1/2 years old. From the first day he walked into the place and saw a friendly face he was hooked. Now 7 years later our son has exceeded all of our expectations. At first he was just in awe of the older kids, and set being a Black belt as his goal as so many kids do, then it was Instructor Trainee as his goal, and now it is to become a 3rd Degree Black Belt in TKD. Along the way he has learned many valuable lessons trying to live up to what is expected from a person who attains that Black belt. His grades have been excellent, part of which we attribute to his memory from TKD and all the different forms. We have also heard over and over, your son is so polite which we also believe is related to what is expected from the kids at Mr. Strickland's TKD facility. Absolutely one of the biggest things our son has learned from TKD is that if you work hard, persevere and do your best you can achieve your goals, it won't happen overnight, but it will happen.”      

~Bart Hege

    “Obviously, we could have chosen any of the many local martial arts schools for Matthew and Ryan to attend.  Yours was the recurring answer in ALL of the suggestions that we elicited from friends, neighbors & teachers.  It doesn’t get better than that.  This trail of compliments that led our boys to your school has positively changed their lives and our household.”

~Emily Pecoraro

   “Thank you Mr Strickland for a wonderful news letter.. Both I and Kaitlyn set on the couch and read your news letter with tears in our eyes and joy in our hearts.. After reading the news letter, Katie said she wonders what life has in store for her.. What ever, we hope you continue to send the news letters out for each person to read and enjoy as much as us.........”


~Katie and Bob

Our Philosophy?

Ever see an old martial arts movie where the Instructor barks and yells like a drill sergeant?  We could teach that way if we wanted.  In fact, in the past we used too.  But we don't anymore!  With children our approach is more like the USMC meets Sesame Street!  Its FUN!

Here at Strickland’s we are as serious as need be about what we want from our students.  We do want them to push themselves to improve in all aspects of the art.  We expect nothing less than a student's best effort and for our students to show expertise and skill consummate with their training level.  We firmly believe that this can be done in a fun atmosphere where students can enjoy coming to class.  The more students enjoy class, the more they will come to class.  Time and repetition are the students best teachers.  What we do is make it fun and exciting for them!

Benefits of Training!

Increased Fitness - Our workouts help lead to a healthier lifestyle that will lead to weight loss, body conditioning, stamina, and increased endurance.  Whether you had a hard day at work, home or school, a workout like ours relieves stress while you have fun doing it and thats a big plus!

Build Self Confidence - Healthy people radiate self-confidence in every aspect of their lives.  Adults with self-confidence succeed at work while children with self-confidence succeed in the classroom.  With this confidence the have a A+ attitude with school work.  The life lessons students learn on the mat while working out will help them deal with most daily problems.  Parents, Self Confidence more than anything else keeps the bullies at bay!

Meet New & Exciting People - While working out, you will meet a lot of new and exciting people.  Working out next to your friend makes it more social and fun. Instead of seeing your work out as a chore, you will find that you enjoy the social setting while training along with making new friends.

No Knuckle Heads - We have a family friendly attitude where anyone in any shape can start and progress.   Yes, we have talented, experienced and confident students and instructors.  However, our inclusive atmosphere ensures you are never left out of the fun.  We do not allow any negative or aggressive behavior, nor any misuse of Taekwondo in any way, shape or form in or out of our school.

Take Class with Fun and Respectful Instructors - All of our instructors are professionally trained and nationally certified.  We understand that everyone is at a different fitness level and in every class; we adapt our drills to your fitness level.  We understand your goals and strive to help all ages to achieve their best in a positive environment.

Learn Self Defense Skills - In addition to learning how to kick and punch, students in our program are exposed to self-defense techniques from various disciplines that are practiced repeatedly for effectiveness.  You just can’t simply take one seminar or clinic and assume that you know self-defense.  The self-defense skills that we will teach you will develop over time.  For the parents out there, yes we will teach your child how to handle the bully physically in all manner of ways that many times do not escalate the situation.

We are part of a National Organization of Schools - Strickland's Taekwondo is a member of Taekwondo United, a national co-op organization with member schools all across the United States.  All TU schools adhere to similar guidelines and procedures, including standards by which we teach and advance students in rank. TU has established a national reputation built upon trust and our standard of excellence in the field of martial arts.
