The family that “Kicks” together, “Sticks” together!
About Our School
Williams Tae Kwon Do was established in 1998. Our first school was in our basement. Later we moved to the Bellin Building, where one of our clients was The Green Bay Gamblers hockey team.
After that we moved to various fitness centers until making our home on Oneida Street in Ashwaubenon, Wisconsin. After a short break we moved into our Broadway Street location in De Pere. The April 24, 2019 fire forced us relocate to our current location at 1259 S Military Avenue in Green Bay. In January of 2022 we relocated across the street to 1218 S Military Ave.
Williams Tae Kwon Do is led by Master Instructor Dan Williams. Mr. Williams started his Tae Kwon Do career as an adult. After being bullied throughout his childhood and having little self esteem he decided to make a change.
He joined Chay’s Academy of Tae Kwon Do in September of 1990. Grand Master Chong Hyon Chay was the owner and Grand Master that Mr. Williams studied under.
Mr. Williams quickly realized his passion for the sport and found he had a knack for teaching beginner students. As a Red Belt he was charged to teach all of the beginner students for Grand Master Chay.
Mr. Williams received his First Degree Black Belt in December 1992. He then was asked to open a satellite school in Oconto, WI. Later, in 1995, he moved back to Green Bay to continue his teaching at Chay’s Tae Kwon Do. He soon opened his own school and established Williams Tae Kwon Do with his family.
More Than a Sport
There is more to Tae Kwon Do than kicks, punches, and blocks. Tae Kwon Do is a way of life. At Williams Tae Kwon Do students of all ages develop techniques of self defense while learning the discipline necessary to avoid confrontation.
