About MIJO Taekwondo
A division of MIJO Sport, MIJO Taekwondo is an Olympic style Taekwondo School. With locations in both Oak Bay, Esquimalt and Sooke, MIJO Taekwondo is sanctioned by the Taekwondo Federation of BC, Taekwondo Canada and the World Taekwondo Federation. All MIJO Taekwondo Instructors are certified Black Belts.
With beginnings in the Comox Valley in 1992, MIJO Taekwondo now trains over 150 students in the Greater Victoria area.
Taekwondo is an official Olympic sport that teaches punching, kicking, blocking, patterns, self defence and sparring. Students will enjoy the dynamic nature of this sport as they progress to learn jumping, spinning and flying kicks.
Based on a belt system, Taekwondo offers students the opportunity to learn and practice a set curriculum to achieve each new level. Students will be challenged with new and more complex techniques as they work their way toward achieving their Black Belt. Through dedicated practice and hard work, students will learn and understand the 5 Tenets of Taekwondo: Courtesy, Integrity, Pereverence, Self Control, Indomitable Spirit and learn to apply such principles in daily life.
