OUR DOJANG (도장)
DO-Martial Arts is a facility located in Orlando, Florida and was established in 2015 with the need to bring the Taekwon-Do governed by the International Taekwon-Do Federation or ITF. Our school is fully dedicated in the study of this traditional style, providing lessons that excel others schools and making sure the student obtains the right amount of training before moving up in ranks and not on a schedule basis.
Our goal is not only to teach punch and kicks but to promote the Discipline, Respect, Confidence and Courtesy to others.
As our name “DO”, meaning “the way” or “the way of”, our facility practice and promotes this philosophy. We believe in collaboration with other schools, with the goal of exchanging knowledge, expanding and contributing to a more peaceful and productive society.

CERTIFIED BY THE INTERNATIONAL TAEKWON-DO FEDERATION
Sabumnim Reyes started training in the Taekwon-Do when he was 6 years old. He is the second generation of ITF Taekwon-Do practitioners from the island of Puerto Rico. He trained under the Young Brothers, an organization founded by the recognized Master Benny Rivera. Under the training of Dean Rivera and later Elizabeth Gonzalez he became Pewee Champion for two consecutive years.
He trained until the age of 22 when he moved to Florida. He continue his training on his personal time since he couldn't find any Certified ITF School here in Orlando and after a few years of searching and not be able to find a Taekwon-Do School he decided to open DO-Martial Arts. Now he is committed to teach in Central Florida and bring back the ITF Taekwon-Do.
Mr. Shuklin is a student that traveled from Russia, looking for a different life but without leaving his passion for TaeKwon-Do. He is been training since he was 8 years old and he joined our Dojang when he was 13, already a 1st Geup (Black Stripe). He continued improving his techniques, his knowledge and his skills until he achieved one of his goals to become a black belt. We are so proud to have him and to help him achieve one of many goals.
Now Mr. Shuklin is helping our younger students to improve their techniques, sharing his knowledge and always motivating our students to continue training and to never give up.

Mr. Andrew obtained his Black Belt on August 15, 2020 after 6 years of training at the age of 16. He is the first student from our school to obtain his black belt starting all the way from white belt. Andrew started other martial arts before practicing Taekwon-Do and it wasn’t until a few years later when he realized how passionate he was for the art and how much he was getting from it.
Andrew is a great example of what it means to have Perseverance because during his journey he has gone trough so much between his personal responsibilities and the sport that at one point he almost gave up for good. Staying at home without doing Taekwon-Do and missing his true friends he realized that his life is not complete anymore without his training and partners and when he returned, he came back with more commitment than ever, he became a great example to other students at the Dojang, a great athlete, a mentor and a great assistant.

Do your research before you sign your child on any other school.
The difference between a Dojang and a Gym is the same between an Instructor and a Trainer. The mission to build individuals with integrity more than athletes and obtain values more than medals.
Our objective is to promote in the students the Respect, the Values, the Honesty, the Strength, the Discipline and the Responsibility. We believe that the student should obtain a vision of the real life through the Taekwon-Do practice.
Know that the goals can be reached fighting, that life is not always fair and is not always easy. That sometimes you win and sometimes you lose, and the losses are learning experiences, that we should always keep our dignity, the humbleness and the respect to ourselves and others.
In the Taekwon-Do the importance is the DO, the way, the constant learning, the process of better ourselves all the time, if we concentrate in the DO, the objectives are met, and the goals are reached.
“Same thing happens in life.”
