Matt and Big Apple TKD helped my son not only strengthen his TKD skills but to become more confident physically, emotionally, and socially. Matt assesses each student and finds their particular strengths / weaknesses and modifies the class accordingly. I highly recommend Big Apple TKD.

My sons have been taking taekwondo for several years now and have been with Big Apple Taekwondo for the last year. They love it and I find that it is not only a great outlet for their energy but also great for their focus, discipline, and overall confidence. The instructors are very talented, friendly and supportive and the gym is light, bright and clean. My sons particularly enjoy the the variety within lessons. I would never hesitate to recommend taekwondo and this is a great school in which to learn.


My son has been taking taekwondo classes at big apple for about 16 months and our experience couldn’t be better. He was 5 when he started and has always been a very active child but this wasn’t just about the sport, these classes have built his confidence, improved his coordination, balance and motor skills – Instructor Mat is AMAZING, he gives the children the right combination of motivation, discipline and fun to keep all kids interested and challenged. My son never wants to miss a class!
