Martial Arts Instruction in Saratoga Springs, UT
All martial arts instructors at International Martial Arts Academy in Saratoga Springs, UT are trained to ensure that our martial arts classes are safe, effective and fun.
Master Augustine Torkornoo
My name is Augustine Torkornoo. I am the Master Instructor here at the International Martial Arts Academy (IMAA). I have been studying the art of Taekwondo for the past 26 years. I love Martial Arts and believe that its core principles of Loyalty, Honesty, Courage, Discipline, Self-Control, Respect, Compassion, and Love are what define a person. IMAA teaches the principle of BLACK BELT EXCELLENCE. Not only do students become black belts in martial arts, but they also strive to become academic black belts and eventually, corporate black belts or black belt employees.
We use black belt as a metaphor for personal excellence, we monitor our students progress towards these goals with our “to do list” and our “letters of intent to promote.”
The academy also teaches Martial Arts in a way that compliments what our students are taught in the home and in school. Together we help mold our students (especially the younger ones) into well balanced, positive individuals with the power to achieve anything they can dream up. The primary objective of the academy is to develop well rounded students, not only at our schools, but in society as well.
I invite you to sign up for one of our free classes, bring your family, and let our highly talented instructors show you the benefits of martial arts.
Looking forward to seeing you in class!
