Welcome to Carmi Taekwondo Center!


Carmi Taekwondo Center (CTC) is located in downtown Carmi, IL and has been open since January 6, 2004.  On September 3, 2013 CTC relocated to 106 E. Main St. (the former Western Auto building).  CTC teaches Songahm style Taekwondo and is a member of the American Taekwondo Association. 

Carmi Taekwondo Center offers both child and adult classes.  Taekwondo is a Korean martial art that focuses primarily on kicking techniques.  Although viewed by many as a sport today, the techniques of Taekwondo are very applicable in self-defense. 

Taekwondo training offers a variety of physical and mental benefits.  Students learn self-defense techniques in addition to improving their physical fitness.  Taekwondo also reinforces such mental attributes as: self-control, perseverance, honor, loyalty, respect, courtesy, and integrity.  More information about Taekwondo can be found throughout this web site.
