NWBBA Lynnwood, this is one place we call a Home away from home! One of the main reasons is because of Master Joe. He has welcomed our family into this Dojang with open arms and has made us feel like family from the very first moment we entered the school. My son Anthony, has been training with Coach Brandon, Master Joe and Master Kevin and loves Taekwondo and the sparring team. He rarely every misses practice because he loves the sport and all the kids he gets to spar and train with. NWBBA has been an awesome place which nurtures growth, not just in martial arts but in the development of good attitudes, hard work, and perseverance which carry over to all aspects of life. This place is number one in my book. The variety of workouts you get will keep your heart pumping, wear you out and make you want more. They have Washington United Practices here that allow kids from surrounding dojangs all the way from Federal Way, Monroe, Tacoma, that want additional training for competitions. Mrs. Maria is int eh office and is a miracle worker, she handles most of if not all the paper work, registration, fundraising, billing. You got questions, she has Answers. Bottom line: This is a Great School to be educated. Come join the family, you won't regret it!
Our 11 year old son started training in Taekwondo at the Northwest Black Belt Academy (NWBBA) almost one year ago. We soon realized that there was a vast difference between Martial art clubs & pro-grade comprehensive martial arts education center like NWBBA. Master Joe and the team of instructors & assistants are serious professionals who are dedicated to developing competitive, well rounded and disciplined athletes of the future. They pay meticulous attention to detail on every student's individual performance and work closely with them to progress towards their own self actualization goals. NWBBA has produced many athletes who compete at US National and International levels...and win!!! The support staff at NWBBA are caring, kind and helpful. The changes in my son's general attitude & performance are significant & noticeable. Positive attitude, timeliness, sense of discipline, perseverance, teamwork, respect, being attentive & focused are some of them. As for the performance, the growing number of medals and trophies say it all! We highly recommend NWBBA to all aspiring martial artists!
Through NWBBA, I have gained several strengths, including schedule prioritization and a respectful nature. Including these, my physical strengths have extremely exceeded my original expectations of myself. Emotional intelligence, although unexpected, has also contributed to my performance at NWBBA. All in all, these points contribute ot the friendly and productive atmosphere you are immediately surrounding in when entering this dojang.
My daughter has been taking Taekwondo for 6 years. She started at another school but just recently moved to NWBBA with Master Joe Whitworth and his outstanding team of instructors. In the short time we have been here, we have been impressed with the caliber of expert instruction our daugher has received. She is excited to learn taekwondo again. She was three weeks away from getting her black belt before we moved schools, but she insists that this was the best decision we have made. She is eager to earn her black belt from Master Joe. She says she loves taekwondo and that it is fun again. Master Joe makes her work hard but she is smiling the entire time. That makes it worth every penny.
NWBBA, is a great place for Taekwondo. Master Joe is an amazing role model and Instructors. It is a great place for kids and adults alike. The discipline and respect that is taught and practiced by the kids is exceptional. Both teachers and parents from school recognize and comment about how polite, courteous, and respectful my daughter is. She stays focused and on task daily and I believe it is from the tenants taught to them at NWBBA. We love this place and appreciate the parents, coaches, and Master Joe. We wouldn't think of going anywhere else.
NWBBA has become a home away from home for my family. My daughter is on the competition team, that Master Joe coaches and it has become such a big part of her life. Master Joe and the other instructors know how to motivate, correct, encourage and make our kids better athletes and better human beings. We are so fortunate to have found NWBBA in Lynnwood. Kudos to Master Joe for a creating a great program and great environment for our kids.
