As a parent and a student of Cunningham’s Fort Wayne Tae Kwon Do School, I know belts for rank are earned with hard work and sweat. Our family tried other schools, but we were disappointed with the “assembly line” mentality of handing out advancements for rank. At Cunningham’s the lessons are as a group. However, individual attention is given to each student to perform at his or her very best. The best physical and mental capacity, whatever their gender or age. Appropriate care is also ensured for differences in weight, physical abilities and gender. Master Cunningham encourages growth and understanding for each rank, never settling for mediocrity from any student. The lessons for self-defense, physical conditioning and respect for others are explained daily. These Lessons the student carries with them for the rest of their life. A parent truly empowers their child with all the benefits from this school.
I enrolled in Tae Kwon Do because I wanted to improve my physical condition, focus, strength, and confidence…but, most of all I wanted to learn self-defense strategies, so I could protect myself or my family if threatened. I’ve learned all this and much more…and, I would recommend Cunningham’s Fort Wayne Tae Kwon Do to anyone interested in doing the same thing.
wanted to put my daughter in Tae Kwon Do to learn respect, self control, confidence, strength, and self defense. She has learned all of this and more in her 2+ years she has been there. She is a 1st blue belt now and I am extremely grateful of how much she has learned from Master Cunningham and the other awesome instructors. All the kids get along so well and respect each other. I highly recommend this place to anyone.
I started training in Tae Kwon Do 11 years ago to supplement my morning gym workouts. I continued for this long because the school provides a rigorous workout in a safe, healthy atmosphere. Master Instructor Forrest has an incredible knowledge of physiology and muscle mechanics that he applies to the various movements and self-defense techniques that he teaches. And he always seems to have more to share. If you want to train in traditional Tae Kwon Do with practical applications, this is the school for you.
My son, John, has been under the instruction of Forrest Cunningham for over 10 years. During this time, John has learned much from him; discipline and the skills needed to defend himself if need be. Forrest is a conscientious instructor and is always looking for ways to better his techniques and teaching styles so as to make it interesting and useful for his students. He gives his all to helping students be the best they can be. He definitely cares for his students and this is evident in the way he instructs and builds a rapport with his students. I know my son respects him and talks highly about him. I feel confident in my son’s ability to defend himself because of the instruction he has had at Cunningham’s Fort Wayne Tae Kwon Do.
