Smith’s Tae Kwon Do, in Lumberton, N.C., is the only full time martial arts school in Robeson County. Sensei David Smith has been in business for 20+ years and offers several different types of classes to fit anyone's needs.
Smith's Tae Kwon Do Academy teaches the most innovative form of martial arts available! Through the use of Tae Kwon Do and weapons, we give students complete knowledge of martial arts, total body exercises, greater speed and agility. Our program allows all individuals to reach their full potential. We understand the importance of a healthy mental attitude and strive to emphasize respect for oneself, the teacher and fellow students.
We partake in the philosophy that martial arts will allow self-betterment of each person through a series of achievement in goals set forth. They may be goals to gain self-confidence or self-esteem, or they may be to achieve a self-discipline or focus needed at work, school or home. We teach the students to protect themselves but at the same time we also teach them to try and avoid the situation by not being there or de-escalating the situation so that a safe retreat can be made. They will learn to be self-aware but that they do not have to fight to prove the knowledge to themselves or anyone else.
