Virginia’s Top Rated Local® Martial Arts Centers Award Winner: Virginia TaeKwonDo Academy

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Virginia TaeKwonDo Academy is a 2019 award winner for martial arts centers in Virginia!

Whether you’re interested in martial arts for you or your child, there’s no better martial arts center to turn to than Virginia TaeKwonDo Academy in Chesapeake.

Virginia TaeKwonDo Academy has received dozens of reviews from four verified sites with an average rating of 4.88 stars, earning them an incredible Rating Score™ of 97.75 and a 2019 Top Rated Local award for ranking among the top 10 martial arts centers in all of Virginia!

Here’s just one of their many five-star reviews:

“Mr. Baker and the entire TaeKwonDo instructor staff are nothing short of exceptional in every facet of this academy. Their ability to connect with the students, even at the earliest ages, is truly impressive. Beyond the valuable physical training they receive, Mr. Baker delivers tailored life skill lesson instruction related to each age grouping. His attention to detail, more than likely fine-tuned during his extensive military experience, is evident as soon as the parents and students enter the facility and take note of an immaculately clean space, which is always ready for training. We feel lucky that he and his staff are able to develop the minds and bodies of our two children and help them become productive parts of our community.” – James W.

Not Your Average Martial Arts Center

As evidenced by many of their reviews, there are so many things that set Virginia TaeKwonDo Academy apart from other martial arts centers, but according to Scott Baker, the owner, it’s their mission that makes the biggest difference.

“Our mission is to empower students to enrich their personal, artistic and professional lives through traditional TaeKwonDo and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu training, while providing students with the various benefits resulting from highly functional training.”

The program at Virginia TaeKwonDo Academy is family-oriented because they feel that “the family that kicks together sticks together.” Better yet, their pricing reflects that by only charging $35 for each additional family member. No other martial arts center in Hampton Roads can compare with those prices.

We also wanted to know why they do what they do at Virginia TaeKwonDo Academy and how they work to make the world a better place. Here’s what Scott had to say:

“We believe the highest purpose of our programs is to prepare students for the responsibilities of citizenship. Our programs are about real and powerful experiences, resulting in the discovery of innate capabilities and a heightened sense of responsibility. To that end, we encourage our students to use their knowledge to improve our communities through one act of leadership, public service and mentoring at a time.”

Building Success by Making a Difference

According to Scott, Virginia TaeKwonDo Academy doesn’t have such a strong online reputation by accident. It comes from the difference the academy makes in the lives of their students.

“Community” is one of the tenets of TaeKwonDo, and giving back to their community has helped to grow Virginia TaeKwonDo Academy. They get their name out there by doing community projects and women’s self-defense classes, and by working with local businesses and the government to provide services to the community.

There are many other business owners out there looking to grow their business and build their online reputation. Here is Scott’s expert advice for those business owners:

“Find yourself a good mentor and get a game plan, and then execute that game plan.”

Congratulations to the team at Virginia TaeKwonDo Academy for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Scott, for taking the time to speak with us!
