Sid’s Taekwondo

Our Taekwondo Academy and karate center here in Lexington, Kentucky, was established in 2001 by Master Instructor Mr. Sid Nelson, 7th degree black belt, who has been actively involved in martial arts for over 30 years.

When we first opened our Academy we made a strong commitment to supportand empower the communities we serve.

Our Academy belongs to Taekwondo America Organization. Taekwondo America (TA) is a national organization with member schools across the United States. All the schools adhere to the same principles, standards, andprocedures which guide the way the schools teach, promote students in rank, and project their image and reputation within the community.

We are proud to teach the traditional form of Taekwondo(Korean Karate) “Chang-Hun” which means “Blue Cottage”, a Korean martial art whose origins and evolution may be traced back through 2,000 years in history. Chang-Hun was General Choi Hong Hi’s pen name. General Choi Hong Hi is considered the father of modern Taekwondo.
