Our Story

ChampYon Taekwondo was founded on the South side of Chicago by Grandmaster Luciano when his own Instructor passed on his own school to him in 1982.
He then dedicated his life towards spreading the love of Taekwondo to everyone he has encountered and grew the brand to the International reputation we hold today.

With Grandmaster Medina, his wife, and two children,
Masters Christian and Nedra Medina as full-time instructors,
ChampYon TaeKwonDo is the true definition of a family business.

Our values stem from Grandmaster Medina's teaching and understanding of the Martial Art.

TaeKwonDo Tenets

We prioritize teaching the TaeKwonDo Tenets as they form the foundation of the art's philosophy and character development. The tenets of Taekwondo are a set of principles that students are encouraged to embody both on and off the mats.


Showing courtesy to all others inside and outside of the training academy.


Includes not only the general definition of integrity where a taekwondo practitioner is not only able to determine the diffference between right and wrong but also being able to stand up for what is right.


Refers to the willingness of the taekwondo student to continue his or her training and struggle against all odds in order to reach the goal.


This means to have control over your thoughts emotions, as well as your actions

Indomitable Spirit

This refers to having the courage to stand up for your principles and beliefs, no matter who you go against and what hindrances are ahead of you.

"At first i was a little skeptical about taking my son to a Taekwondo class. Not knowing what to expect I was against it. Honestly it has been the best experience for my son and for my family. My son absolutely loves to learn new things. Not only has he made new friends but he has also improved on he elasticity and his own persona. All the instructors, the owners and the parents have been completely amazing. Made our family feel like we have another family in our Taekwondo world! If your looking to teach your children structure and discipline this is the place you need to go!
