United Taekwondo was founded in 1981 by Grand Master Frank Santarose. At age 15, he was selected above all other students along with his brother to privately train with the legendary Grand Master Kang Ik Mu. Mr. Santarose opened his first studio in Katy, Texas on June 6, 1981. Under the direction of Grand Master Park Bu Kwang, Mr. Santarose began a long and successful competitive career with over 20 major tournament victories.
With multiple locations in and around Houston, Mr. Santarose, an inductee into the Martial Arts Hall of Fame, has built one of the largest Martial Arts organization in Texas. His instructors rank among the best in the world and many United students consistently place in the top of their class in national competition year after year.
As Grand Master, it is Mr. Santaroses' responsibility to see that every United student is personally trained by qualified instructors in order that they obtain their maximum potential. To do that, Mr. Santarose has invested numerous years developing instructors who best exemplify his knowledge of Tae Kwon-Do which is then passed down to each student.
From time-to-time, Master Santarose will visit each school for the purposes of instructor evaluation and obtaining direct feedback. This procedure ensures that the highest quality instruction is afforded every student.
We have since then served the Houston area with the best martial arts training available today. Our programs are second to none. We instill the tenets of Tae Kwon Do: Courtesy, Integrity, Perseverance, Self Control and Indomitable Spirit into every student we teach. Our passion is the success of our students, not just in martial arts, but in their futures. We teach honor, discipline and build our students self esteem. Our students are taught to be leaders, not followers. We build character and teach our students to stand for righteousness and truth instead of falling to peer pressure, drugs, alcohol and an unhealthy lifestyle.
