The Colorado Taekwondo Institute has five different locations including Littleton, Lakewood, Westminster, Golden and Conifer, all providing educational Martial Arts training within a positive environment. The different aspects of learning include how to use self-control, build self-confidence, and maintain a healthy lifestyle; definitely the best when it comes to martial arts classes in Littleton.
The Littleton school is located on South Simms Street, in between Belleview Avenue and Bowles Avenue, within a shopping center with other businesses including Iwayama Sushi and Pump N Save gas station. There are also quite a few elementary, middle, and high schools in the neighboring areas, some of which are: Westridge Elementary, Montessori Peaks Academy, Mount Carbon Elementary, Summit Ridge Middle School, and Dakota Ridge High School.
The Littleton location first opened in 1994 with students coming from surrounding areas, especially around the southwest metro-Denver area. Students come to train with many highly educated, experienced, and energetic black belts. The campus provides classes for children as young as 2 years old, along with kids, teens, and adults of all ages. The Littleton school has ten fully accredited black belts that have all been participating at the Colorado Taekwondo Institute for over 6 years, and all began as white belts at this campus. These black belts instruct and assist, and also continue their personal training at the Littleton campus. The head instructor at Littleton is Master John T. Sautel, who is a 6th degree black belt in Moo Sul Kwan Taekwondo. He is an exceptional teacher of all ages with over 30 years of experience as a martial arts instructor, and is also a licensed Jefferson County School middle school teacher.
An exclusive attribute of the Littleton school is the design of the workout rooms and lobby. This includes two spacious workout areas with custom-built suspended floors, which allow the students to amplify their work out and participation abilities. These areas are also carpeted to enable a good learning experience in a comfortable environment. The large work out room includes equipment rack shelves for students to put their workout bags on while engaging in class; this gives them easy access to equipment they may need during training. Both workout areas include all utensils that are needed for instructors to ensure an educational and fun-filled class.
There is a pro-shop in the lobby area that includes student manuals, sparring equipment, and required patches. There are also key rings, t-shirts, and equipment bags to complete the fulfilled experience at the CTI Littleton location. There is a TV in the lobby that exhibits screenings of past Colorado Taekwondo events including tournaments, summer Expo’s, and Camp’s that show experiences and immense learning that happen while participating in these events. The lobby area also includes a place for parents, friends, and family to sit and watch as the students participate in classes apart in a setting that won’t interfere with their learning. The smaller work out room for the toddlers also includes a space set aside for parents to watch. The CTI staff and students, along with their families, make it possible to have a family-friendly environment.
The Colorado Taekwondo Institute has a mission to: “Encourage world-class leadership through educational excellence and Moo Sul Kwan martial arts traditions.” The devotion of the CTI black belts and instructors ensures that students will be educated in a positive learning environment to be developed into leaders with many skills that can be carried over to family, school, and the community.
