The complete history of Tae Kwon Do is quit lengthy. Tae Kwon Do was practiced during the silla dynasty. People trained their bodies and their minds. Hwarando was an essential part of silla's struggle to unify the whole country.In the history of Korea, Tae Kwon Do was called Subak.

 At that time people practiced not for exercise, health, or sport activity, they practiced as martial art of considerable value. Historical records testified that  since the Korean dynasty Tae Kwon Do was practiced as an organized sport for spectators. Now Taekwondo is an olympic sport and is practiced all around the world.

ChampYon Taekwondo was founded on the South side of Chicago by Grandmaster Luciano when his own Instructor passed on his own school to him. 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's two children, Masters Christian and Nedra Medina as full time instructors, ChampYon Taekwondo is truly a family business to the heart. 

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