My interest in Sun Soo Tae Kwon Do began as a parent sitting in the lobby watching our son’s classes. We signed our son up several years ago after he attended a Sun Soo birthday party. The instructors seemed patient, enthusiastic and seemed to care about the character of their students as much as teaching them how to move their bodies as martial artists. That was very compelling for me as a parent. My son has been practicing for 2 years now and I’ve noticed a lot of changes. He’s more focused, he’s much more respectful, he seems to be more compassionate, more courteous to adults and to other kids, and he’s doing better in school behaviorally. He was always strong academically but since starting his practice here he seems more driven to bring his best to the classroom. Before my son started practicing, he also experienced some bullying. He would get very upset but he didn’t want to cry so he would just kind of shut down. About a year into his practice he started really standing up to anyone who would bully him, in a really courteous and strong way, and I was immensely proud of him for that. I don’t see him being a good target anymore for bullies which is incredibly relieving as a parent. My son and I started to bond right away as soon as I started practicing… he’s kind of been my teacher along the way, and that has been a load of fun. We started to really enjoy the community here and we have a lot of friends in common. It’s really fun to share that with him. He also been more helpful and more courteous, which makes parenting a little easier. My husband started practicing about 6 months ago. It has been great having three of us on the mat taking family classes together. It has been a healthy way for my husband and I to spend time and relieve work and life stress together. When I first started practicing, I really just wanted to get out of the lobby and onto the mat because it looked like fun. I also wanted to improve my fitness, try something new and find a healthy way of reducing stress. The reasons I practice now go a little deeper. I’m realizing that my practice has enhanced my cognitive focus and helped me feel more physically and emotionally empowered both on and off the mat. I really enjoy the sense of community that this place offers. It is warm, welcoming and incredibly supportive. I never imagined becoming a martial artist but I am so grateful to have found Sun Soo. What Asheville Sun Soo means to me is encouragement, compassion, and striving for personal excellence. - Tina Clark, age 45, Licensed Professional Counselor

I would highly recommend any Family to experience this studio. The owners are genuine and caring. You feel the heart of this practice from the start. It's not about fighting, its much more. I would suggest you ask for the Free one on one to get a feel if it's right for you.

My child and I are both students here, and it has been nothing but a positive experience for us. The environment is nurturing, yet disciplined and rigorous. There is tremendous support, from instructors and fellow students alike. If you are thinking about beginning the study of martial arts, then you owe it to yourself to at least come and see what it is all about!

Asheville Sun Soo is awesome! Not only do I get a great workout I have gained a community of friends who are so dear to me. The school teaches a lot about being in integrity and cultivating a positive outlook on life which I really enjoy. The attention to detail taught of the art by the teachers is incredible I feel my practice is getting better and better all the time. This school is such a great combination of having fun and serious martial art skill, the best of both worlds!!!

I have wanted to practice martial arts at this school ever since I had the pleasure of working with the school's founder Tony Morris years ago in a professional aspect. I got my son started first, and then I was finally able to join him on the mat. My experiences at Sun Soo have exceeded my expectations and hopes for martial arts training. Not only do I get a great work-out every class, but I enjoy deep support, encouragement, and validation from the great community of people Master Morris and his wonderful staff have drawn to the school. My son and I look forward to many more years of fun and sweat at this great place.

There’s a well-kept secret about Asheville Sun Soo Tae Kwon Do. Of course, the instructors are experienced, remarkable practitioners who are fully dedicated to providing the greatest possible Tae Kwon Do experience for their students. But the little-known secret about Asheville Sun Soo is that it’s not all about self-defense – it’s mostly about self-development. I’ve seen my sons, ages 6 and 8, transform into more focused, courteous and respectful young men. Their energy is being channeled in a fun, constructive way with care, compassion and a sense of community. Asheville Sun Soo Tae Kwan Do is molding the future leaders of our community, and I’m thrilled our family is a part of theirs.

If you want to become a great martial artist, get into shape without having to go to the gym or simply want to meet new people in a fun environment then this is the place for you. I practiced martial arts as a kid and then stopped for 25 years. Now that my kids are old enough, I wanted them to have the same experiences I did when I was younger. I checked out the other facilities in town and I chose Sun Soo because of the many classes available, also they have a family class for kids and adults. Great place with truly dedicated and caring instructors!!
