September 1, 2018 - U.T.T.C. Welcomes Master Jason Smith,
Mrs. Stacie Smith and Redwood Tae Kwon-Do
United Traditional Tae Kwon-Do Canada ® | Headquarters 1236 - 3rd Avenue South Lethbridge, Alberta | (403) 328-8400 | firstname.lastname@example.org
Since 1995, Master Jason Smith and Mrs. Stacie Smith have operated their community martial arts school teaching Tae Kwon-Do to kids, adults and families in Redwood Meadows, Bragg Creek and nearby areas. The school started in the old Bragg Creek hall and moved to the Redwood Meadows Community Centre in 1997. Over its many years the school developed a strong bond with the community, teaching hundreds of students and always maintaining its focus on traditional Tae Kwon-Do.
Both Master Smith and Mrs. Smith began their training at young ages at J.J. Lee Tae Kwon Do School under the leadership of ninth degree Grandmaster J.J. Lee. Master Smith obtained his 6th Degree Black Belt in 2015 and Mrs. Smith her 4th Degree Black Belt in 2001. They are both strong supporters of martial arts for all ages and believe in the real benefits that Tae Kwon-Do offers.
Joining U.T.T.C. is a significant milestone for Redwood Meadows Tae Kwon Do – one that allows the school to stay connected to the past and true to its traditional and foundational Tae Kwon-Do roots, but importantly also enables the school to focus on the future and on providing new and exciting opportunities for students.
