World Class Taekwondo History

Veteran owned, World Class Taekwondo was established in August of 2004, and has been teaching students how to kick their way to the top for almost 20 years.

Owner Mark Thibodeau first discovered his dream of becoming a martial artist after watching movies featuring the iconic Bruce Lee. At the age of just 7, Master Thibodeau began his martial arts journey and quickly fell in love with the sport. Little did he know, this passion would serve as the guide for the rest of his life. Master Thibodeau began specializing in Taekwondo in 1987, and hasn’t stopped training in Taekwondo since. Upon entering high school, he quickly took up wrestling and, after graduating, joined the U.S. Air Force. Today, Master Thibodeau holds his seventh degree black belt in Taekwondo, and is a proud husband and stepfather.

Master Thibodeau teaches in order to give back to the Clermont community, empower students of all ages and backgrounds, and improve lives. Join us today and experience the transformative power of Taekwondo!
