Takai Mine Karate/Tae Kwon Do, teaches four styles of
martial arts: Tae Kwon Do(WTF) , Shorin-Ryu, and Shotokan Karate
and Escrima. Rank is earned in the three hard line styles
simultaneously and rank is available for escrima as well. Even
though competition is not the main focus at TMK/TKD, many students
are nationally ranked competitors. Each year we compete at the AAU
National Youth and Adult TKD Championships.
Takai Mine TKD has won many gold, silver, and bronze medals. We are a family oriented school, focused on values. Along with martial arts training, students from age 4 learn respect, honesty, self-discipline, self-defense, trust, and physical fitness. The school is located in Albuquerque, NM.
