Il-Do Taekwondo was established here in Orange County over 30 years ago in 1980. We were the first to establish a Taekwondo school here in Irvine and have remained the best in instruction ever since. With three locations in Irvine, we have continued to grow in our quest to bring traditional Taekwondo and the benefits of our martial art to all those willing to learn. We are part of the most popular martial art in the world and certify those who learn from us with the World Taekwondo Federation (WTF) and Kukkiwon. Lead by Grandmaster Chang Jin Kang, Il-Do Taekwondo Schools carry on a tradition that has grown from Grandmaster’s half century of training in Taekwondo.


Il-Do Taekwondo highlights the best of martial arts as a way of life, not just a form of self defense. Our philosophy is rooted in basic, fundamental human behavior. We teach Taekwondo as a way of establishing the true meaning of our tenets: courtesy, integrity, perserverance, self-control and an indomitable spirit. Il-Do Taekwondo continues to produce countless black belts that have learned more than just a means of taking care of themselves physically but mentally as well. This unity of mind and body is what it takes to be stronger, better people and the results are students with the ability to lead and set an example for others to follow. Il-Do Taekwondo Association & Elite Fitness has three locations to serve you in Irvine that also serves the communities of Newport Beach, Corona del Mar and Tustin. Elite Fitness also offers classes in kickboxing.
