Taekwondo Classes for Children & Adults


The mission of Yeshá Taekwondo is to train and develop Disciples of Christ through sanctioned martial arts.


The vision of Yeshá Taekwondo is for our disciples to demonstrate Christian leadership principals which positively impact the lives of the individuals they touch. 

Yeshá Taekwondo is a tax exempt, 501(c)(3), community development organization. As the largest non-profit, Olympic-sanctioned Taekwondo organization in Florida, Yeshá Taekwondo has been offering affordable Taekwondo to northeast Florida since 1983. Sharing our passion for Taekwondo and Christ, we have expanded to locations in South Carolina and Tennessee.  

We give our time and energy to those willing to learn, regardless of age or financial ability. Our fees are minimal. We charge no monthly fees. Student registration only costs $60 per year or $30 for 6 months, with a one-time uniform cost of $40. So all you need to bring for your first class are some gym clothes and a water bottle!


Yeshá began as a single Taekwondo class at Neptune Baptist Church in Neptune Beach, Florida, on June 13, 1983, after Grandmaster Coker closed the commercial schools he and his brother (Grandmaster James Coker) owned. Before long, schools were started in other churches, community centers, and storefronts combining the same principles with free training. Yeshá continues to train on both an educational and competitive level. We are one of the few AAU, USA Taekwondo Association and World Taekwondo Federation membership groups in the country. Our competitors are recognized worldwide for their abilities and accomplishments.
