The Lakewood school of the Colorado Taekwondo Institute opened in 1991, and is our headquarter location. Students come from Lakewood, Littleton, Morrison, Golden, and Wheat Ridge to train with the most experienced and hardest working black beltsin the metro area. Our dynamic classes provide the best in martial arts lessons for toddlers, kids, teens, and adults. The Lakewood location of the CTI has many certified black belts, who all began at this campus as white belts. These well trained black belts now assist or instruct classes, as well as continue their own training.
The head instructor is Grandmaster James M. Sautel, 7th degree black belt in Moo Sul Kwan Taekwondo, the highest ranking and most experienced black belt in the area. With over 30 years’ experience as a martial arts instructor, Grandmaster Sautel could teach at any campus – his choice to teach in has ensured that this campus has the best of everything.
