If you're looking for a Taekwondo academy this is the one!!! My son has been attending Master J's sessions for 6 and half years now he's been loving it. Master J is VERY PROFESSIONAL yet entertaining, which creates a very safe and fun environment for the kids.
Hands down the best Taekwondo academy in Bergen Country. My kids have tried many different places but it is very clear Master J runs his program in the most professional and effective way. My kids are consistently excited and motivated not just for tarkwondo classes but every another competitive activities they are involved in thanks to Master J and his teaching methods. 10/10 recommend.

My son has been going to Master J and learning taekwondo for over 3 years. In first grade, Master J made it very fun for the kids to learn in a safe, nurturing environment. As he grew in his skill and maturity, Master J knew when to be stern and focus more on form. Taekwondo is still my son's happy place where he learns to be brave, focus and enjoy his youth.

Although many people think the martial arts are just about fighting, the truth is that the physical “kicking and punching” are really just the tools that I use to teach the more important, and MUCH more valuable lessons about yourself.
