Mister Eric (Owner)
Eric Schanno started Elite TKD with a goal to create the highest quality Martial Arts academy possible. After 5 years of his own training and 6 years watching his son train with multiple schools in the area he realized that there was a need for a school that is focused on the instruction of martial arts versus being a daycare first or, a place where belts are “sold with a smile”. The journey of learning martial arts should be rewarding and challenging not based on a time-line. Students of Elite Taekwondo will feel proud of each belt they achieve due to the hard work and focused instruction they are given.
