Master Pope and all the instructors at
Pope Tae Kwon Do Academy are absolutely amazing. They take the time to work one on one to make sure you learn your techniques and correctly. It is a great family atmosphere that continues to be a wonderful experience for my family and I to learn and grow. My daughter has recently gotten her 3rd Dan and my son is about to get his 2nd Dan. Hands down the best studio around. Highly recommend to anyone. Thank you Master Pope and all instructors for being awesome and for continuing to being awesome all around.
Master Pope and Master Lindsay are great, my son is getting his Purple Belt and loves it, from trying a free class to going 4-5x a week. I would recommend this for kids of all ages..
Grand master Pope and all of his instructors are the best, great with children and adults of all ages.

ABOUT OUR ACADEMY
Pope Taekwondo Academy was born out of a simple idea: bringing high quality, accessible and affordable Martial Arts education to the entire community. Our unique approach to learning and top quality instructors makes Pope Tae Kwon Do one of the best Martial Arts schools in South Florida. We invite you to explore our engaging and diverse course schedule and stop by for a visit at your convenience.
Little Dragons classes are for children ages 3 to 5 years old. The classes are 30 minutes in length and concentrate on developing a child's focus and character.
Beginner classes are designed to give Tae Kwon do students a solid foundation. The Beginners classes give them the confidence to develop their minds as well as the bodies.
Once a student has passed the beginners stage, they move to the intermedate level. Here we still concentrate on character development, but start to focus more on advanced techniques.
