Our Story

Taekwonkids started out with two brothers and dream; Master Scott Sonu (선우 혁) and Master Chin Sonu (선우 진) began their legacy providing one of the most successful Taekwondo programs in Silicon Valley, Northern California, and now that same program is here in the Valley, Arizona to serve our community!
