Vancouver Taekwondo Academy

Welcome to the Pacific Northwest’s Premier Family Martial Arts Center.  Vancouver Taekwondo Academy has been locally owned and independently operated since 2000.  As a staple in the community for the last seventeen years it has been the goal of Vancouver Taekwondo Academy to provide the finest education in taekwondo and martial arts while insuring an environment that is fun, challenging, and rewarding for all who participate.

Taekwondo is a popular martial art practiced all over the world for its many health benefits, self-defense applications, and sporting opportunities.
“Tae” represents the hand, “Kwon” represents the foot, and “Do” represents a committed manner of life.  Despite its rapid growth and popularity taekwondo remains best summarized by the 5 Tenets which have guided practitioners for generations and provide a foundation for the lessons: Courtesy, Integrty, Self-Control, Perseverance, and Indomitable Spirit.  It is the mission of Vancouver Taekwondo Academy to maintain these traditions so students can pursue a personal journey of self-discovery and accomplishment.

VTA classes are taught in a 2,000 square foot facility by the owner and chief instructor William Scott Browning.  Mr. Browning has over 30 years of experience with taekwondo and decades of success as a competitor both in the Americas and Europe.  Mr. Browning took his first opportunity to teach in the Vancouver Public School District intramural program in 1988 and has been assisting students of all ages and levels ever since to transcend their boundaries and redefine their potential.
