When Beyond Taekwondo was originally founded in 2002 it was under the name Competitive Taekwondo Club, or CTC. Over time, however, we realized that this name and logo did not represent our full vision, so we changed our name to Beyond Taekwondo, with the red swirls.
- Beyond: Surpassing boundaries, becoming more than expected.
- Taekwondo: At our heart we are Olympic Style Taekwondo, with all of its tradition and history.
- Red Swirls: Continual growth & learning. We are constantly working on improving ourselves to reach the next level, in all areas of life.
“I have been able to see visible progress in my learning, it has helped me to reach personal goals, it’s helped me to take risks and learn how to better manage adrenaline, and especially to celebrate my accomplishments in a supportive community.”
“I have done Taekwondo for over 20 years. There really is no program like this in the state of Utah. I love that the focus is on the individual & becoming your best self. I love watching as my own kids start on this journey and all they are learning about self control in a fun, safe environment.”
“BST has transformed my son, helping him to manage his ADHD and ODD through physical activity, meditatioin, and a goal-oriented program. He has made great friends, learned to serve and overcome when he falls. He’s now a second degree black belt and a straight A student.”
