Welcome to the Pacific Northwest’s Premier Family Martial Arts Center.  As a staple in the community for over fifteen years it has been the goal of Vancouver Taekwondo Academy to provide the finest education in taekwondo and martial arts while ensuring an environment that is fun, challenging, and rewarding for all who participate.

Taekwondo is a popular martial art practiced all over the world for its many health benefits, self-defense applications, and sporting opportunities.  “Tae” represents the hand, “Kwon” represents the foot, and “Do” represents a committed manner of life.  Despite its rapid growth and development taekwondo is best summarized by the five tenets which provide the foundation for all lessons: Courtesy, Integrity, Self-Control, Perseverance, and Indomitable Spirit.  It is the mission of Vancouver Taekwondo Academy to provide access to all of these facets so that students can pursue a personal journey of self-discovery and accomplishment.

VTA classes are taught in a 2000 square foot training facility by owner and chief instructor William Scott Browning.  Classes balance the athletic and physical development of Olympic-style taekwondo with the need for practical self-defense and personal discovery.  Mr. Browning has over 30 years of martial arts experience including decades of national and international tournament sporting experience along with practical self-defense instruction.  He teaches with a passion for seeing students of all ages and levels transcend their boundaries and redefine their potential.
