In 1993....

...Master Larry Duke of Idaho Taekwondo Training Center, opened his 3rd dojang in Idaho here in McCall. 

The legacy of instruction in McCall has been continued by Master Angela Staup, 5th Dan. She reopened the dojang in 2010 after graduating with a degree in Economics from Boise State University. Master Staup continues to compete nationally and internationally, winning several awards including Best Overall Senior Female Competitor two years in a row at the UC Open at UC Berkeley. She is an international referee and regularly participates in seminars and workshops with USA Taekwondo, Pan-American Taekwondo Union (PATU), and the World Taekwondo Federation (WTF). 

The McCall Teakwondo Club is an extension program of the UC Martial Arts Program (UCMAP) based out of UC Berkeley. That program was established by Grandmaster Dr. Ken Min in 1969 . It was the first university martial arts program in the US. From there Dr. Min worked to get Taekwondo into the Amatuer Athletic Union (AAU), from there into the NCAA, and eventually into the Olympics.

The Korea Martial Arts Summer Camp, originally organized by the UCMAP, has visited Valley County and Central Idaho many times while traveling the west for 40 years.

About Taekwondo


Taekwondo

Ancient Roots in a Modern State

Taekwondo can trace its roots back more than 2,000 years, possibly as far back as the times of Alexander the Great. This Korean martial art, the way of the fist and the foot, is steeped in history and influenced by geography and times. This art was born from a need for self defense and grew from a combat necessity to philosophy. It is one of the more progressive and popular martial arts practiced in the world. Its global influence has continued to spread to even the most remote and poorest areas of the world. It became a full medal sport at the Sydney Olympics in 2000, and now one can participate, teach, and help spread the benefits of Taekwondo through the Peace Corps and the Taekwondo Humanitarian Foundation

Taekwondo involves the whole body and provides a total body workout. It is a great way to improve physical fitness, balance, flexibility, strength, endurance, and speed. It is a lifetime sport, for any one of any age or ability. 

Beyond improving the physique, martial arts help to balance the mind, spirit, and body. It helps to improve and boost confidence, learn self defense, reduce and manage stress, improve self-control and anger management, and much more.

Taekwondo has grown to be the most practiced martial art in the world. Learn more about Taekwondo and its impact across the globe from the World Taekwondo Federation & USA Taekwondo.
