The Lakewood Colorado campus is the headquarters campus for Colorado Taekwondo Institute (CTI). It is the location for Saturday morning instructor and leadership training. Other martial arts schools might try to "wow" you with posters and banners, but at the Lakewood martial arts school, our state-of-the-art workout rooms, our close and convenient location, and our top notch instructors will make you not want to go to any other martial arts place but the Colorado Taekwondo Institute.
The Lakewood campus is nestled in the beautiful Green Mountain neighborhood right off of West Alameda Parkway and is behind US bank and right next to Faith Mountain Church, which we partner with throughout the year doing service projects to support their local food bank. We have one of the safest and friendliest neighborhoods in Lakewood. One of the cool advantages of being at the Lakewood campus is that is is near really great schools ranging from preschool to high school. Many teens including myself have grown up in this community and around these schools and we can say for certain they are great choices. The other great thing that is near the Lakewood campus is good places to eat like Firehouse Subs, Mad Greens and locally operated Burrito Express. If you don’t want to eat out, that's no problem there is a King Soopers right across the street and Safeway is not far either.
The inside of the Lakewood campus is inviting to visitors and versatile for students. It consists of two workout areas. One in the front and one in the back. The state of the art training rooms are where we practice and do Taekwondo. We also have some of the best equipment. We do many activities with sparring bags and targets. They are in very good condition and are very fun to use. Other aspects of the building is the bathrooms and drinking fountains that students can use after workouts. We have another room where we usually store cleaning supplies and vacuums. Our lobbies have been redone with wood flooring instead of carpet and has a very nice feel and look to the campus. We have benches for parents to sit on and watch their kids do amazing things through the large open viewing windows looking into the workout areas.
But best of all, our campus instructors are outstanding at teaching at the Lakewood martial arts campus.The instructor or teacher of the class is the one that helps you with moves, working out and can answer any question relating to martial arts. We love teaching the community the culture of Taekwondo to as many people as possible. We also love to teach kids and adults the benefits of working out and working hard. There are different levels of classes that students take and each one has a great instructor.
The people of Taekwondo, the campus itself, and the Lakewood area are all amazing. When you combine them all together it is an exceptional combination for you and your kids to work out and enjoy yourself in Lakewood.
