"This is Tae Kwon Do as I have always envisioned it! Not only is Jacob Cho a world class kicker but a highly skilled boxer and fighter who applies his skills with pin-point accuracy. He manages to incorporate the best modern training methods and techniques while still maintaining a traditional atmosphere and promoting the classical values that are so rarely seen in schools anymore.

The martial arts world needs more schools like this!"

"Mr. Cho’s teachings are tremendous for the physical and mental development of our 6 year old son. There are valuable lessons about respecting yourself and others; your body, realizing your potential, etc. They are delivered with clarity and conviction, which is refreshing in a complex world that our child seeks to make sense of.

I feel like this is one of the best investments if not the best investment – I am making in time and resources for our son. It is with tremendous sincerity that I endorse Mr. Cho’s school."

"My 3 year old son began classes with Mr. Cho and he loves them! Mr. Cho skillfully combines age-specific fun with the fundamentals of Tae Kwon Do. The classes provide a fantastic forum for our son to work on his strength, balance and self-esteem.

My husband and I have already noticed marked improvement in our son’s motivation to try new activities that he may have been fearful of in the past. We highly recommend Mr. Cho’s classes for anyone willing to improve their inner and outer strength. Laguna Beach is lucky to have Mr. Cho in our community."

"Pratita not only teaches yoga, she is the embodiment of yoga.  It's as if she were born to do this.  I am so grateful to Cho's Academy for offering these community classes.  I have never had a better yoga class anywhere and I've been doing yoga for 25 years.  Thank you Pratita and Cho's Academy."
