About Beyond Taekwondo

Master Taralyn Sorenson got her BS in Psychology and worked with at-risk teens for 15 years in various positions, including youth services and rape recovery. She is invested in helping each individual have the confidence to defend themselves. Click below to read more about our instructors!

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.

“BST has transformed my son, helping him to manage his ADHD and ODD though physical activity, meditation, and a goal-oriented program. He has made great friends, learned to serve, and developed grit to persevere and overcome when he falls. He’s now a second degree Black Belt and a straight A student. I realize that BST requires a financial commitment, but it’s actually much cheaper than therapy and, for us, way more effective. I’m so grateful for the way BST has blessed my family and my son.”

Emily Milner


“BST has been our martial arts go to for over 8 years. It has become our home and the staff & Instructors have become our family. Our oldest started in 4th grade. He stuggled with impulse control, attention, and agressive tendencies. Beyond was the perfect place for him. They taught him how to be patient, to listen, and to find better choices to lashing out. I have since put my other 4 boys in their program. Their leadership curriculum is amazing. It teaches my boys how to be leaders in the studio, at home, and the community. I could go on forever about the awesomeness of their programs. Beyond Sports will forever have my loyalty and my eternal thankfulness for all they have done for my family! We love them!!”

Taekwondo has taught my children focus and hard work. They know they can’t just show up at class–they have to come prepared to give their best effort. The art of Taekwondo has taught my children respect. They respect the mat, respect their instructors, and respect other students. This has naturally flowed into a greater respect practiced in our home. I love that BST incorporates meditation into all their classes. Meditation is a valuable skill that everyone would benefit from learning. One day I sent my son to his room for poor behavior. When I checked on him a few minutes later, I saw him sitting upright in his bed, legs crossed, eyes closed, meditating. When he decided to come out of his room, his attitude had changed dramatically–of his own accord. Over several years he has learned how to use meditation to calm himself, change his emotions, and refocus on demanding tasks. And I know this skill will serve him well in the future.

How much does it cost?

If you’re just looking for the bottom line, we want to make sure you are comparing apples to apples. We have a quality program with internationally certified instructors who have gone through extensive leadership training. Our program is competitively priced for martial arts instruction of this caliber. We strive to provide the best program for our students, with the best bang for your buck. We strongly encourage you to visit our studio and get a feel for our program before making any decisions. Many studios force you to do just that and refuse to give pricing until you walk in the door, but the hard sale isn’t our style. We won’t pressure you and trap you in long contracts. We want you to WANT to be here. Thus, our program prices can be found in the link below. We look forward to seeing you in person if this feels like the right program for you.
