We love Taekwondo! We have always participated in Taekwondo as a Family. We have been doing Taekwondo for 7 years. We received our Black Belts from Mr. and Mrs. Gautreaux in Blue Springs, MO. Mrs G received a Bronze Medal in the 1992 Olympics. They were both, previously, National team coaches and National Champions and World Medialists. We were blessed to be able to learn so much from them. Now we want to pass this knowledge and the love of Taekwondo onto you!
