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 105 E. Main St. (the former Western Auto building). We offer both child and adult classes. CTC teaches Songahm style Taekwondo and is a member of the American Taekwondo Association.

Taekwondo is a Korean martial art that focuses 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 techiniques 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 website.
