For over 10 years, our school has taught students the modern Korean martial art and Olympic Sport of Taekwondo.
We believe that every student deserves the right to live fearlessly and we strive to help each student learn about themselves, build confidence, as well as acquire physical, mental, and emotional skills that are transferrable to all areas of life.
We believe that there is great power in peace and, to those ends, aim to make our world a more inclusive place.
Five Rings Martial Arts is a UWSP Certified Safe Space for LGBTQ+ and we are a proudly diverse community.
