Remarks from Students/Parents of families training at Riverside Taekwondo
“I have met so many wonderful people while training
here at Riverside.It is like my second family.We all have the same goals, which are quality
of technique, serious training and lots of fun during non-Taekwondo hours.The school has adapted the ancient “Code of
the warrior” which is a moral system.The school helps to enforce during training and helps apply it to every
day life.Riverside is
different.The school is operated by a family.It encourages family membership.It recognizes that family does come
all the families training here, we have become a Riverside
Family.We welcome back students who haven’t been training with open arms.And we feel the pain together of those who have been lost.Mrs. Rita Wentworth, Merrimack, NH
at Riverside Taekwondo Hapkido with Masters Couhie has taught my children that
it isn’t just learning moves, but about integrating the Spirit of Taekwondo in
all we do.Respect, trust, self-control,
perseverance are among some of the qualities that Suzanne and Michael Couhie
embody.I believe the leaders of this Martial
Arts school make their dojang a unique and remarkable place for my children to
learn not just a way of moving, but a way of life.”Katy Gibney,
