The literal meaning (translation) of Tae Kwon Do is “foot, hand, art”- or the way of the hand and foot. However, Tae Kwon Do means much more than kicking and punching. It is a non-violent discipline that achieves the goal of inner peace by conditioning the entire body. This art originated in Korea and it is now the most practiced martial art in the world.
We have programs available for children, men and women including Tae Kwon Do, After School and Summer Camps. Whether your are interested in our programs for mental or physical well being, King Tiger offers a number of programs that will fit your developmental needs and your busy schedule as well.

My name is Seongkeun Park and I am the owner of King Tiger Tae Kwon Do Academy. When I began my martial arts journey, the positive impact it had on my life was remarkable. It was always my dream to someday own my own school and when I opened King Tiger Tae Kwon Do Academy in 1988, I made a commitment to our community in Murfreesboro to create an enjoyable environment for students to improve their fitness, while building confidence they can carry into their everyday lives. It is my privilege and honor to take the the knowledge I have received in my own martial arts training and pass it on to the students at my school.
