The Midwest Academy of TaeKwon-Do is dedicated to building self-confidence, discipline, and respect for others. Our programs, special events, and seminars give our students the ability to develop and excel physically and mentally. Classes are taught by Chief Master Dan Valin, 8th Degree Black Belt with over 43 years of training, along with certified Black Belt instructors: Linda Singer, Jim Kwasek, and Matt McCormack. Our focus is to build better individuals who want to give back to their communities as well as develop exceptional martial artists! Tae Kwon-Do is our primary art, but we also incorporate Jiu-jitsu and Hapkido in our curriculum. We have trained thousands of residents over 20 years in Wheeling and River Trails Park Districts and are proud to continue offering the finest martial arts training for the community!
