"My 6 year old son Ethan who has sensory processing integration disorder has been enrolled at Taiga Taekwondo for almost a year now and we absolutely love it. All the people are super nice that attend and the instructors are absolutely fabulous. The owners George and Becky Sloan are two of the nicest people you could ever meet and truly care about each child's progression in Taekwondo. They make it their passion to get these children to be confident in themselves and give them every opportunity to achieve their goals. We are so grateful to be part of a wonderful school with such wonderful athletes and instructors!!" -- Stephanie Turner Hazard
