The message to all Twin Dragons students: “Persevere, and you can accomplish anything!”

Hard work and perseverance pays off for Surrey taekwondo students

Two weeks of free classes make it easy to give Twin Dragon Taekwondo a try!

When Twin Dragon Taekwondo’s students made their first foray into a major competition recently, they didn’t quite know what to expect.

So when the family-operated Surrey club returned home with some significant recognition, they were thrilled.

“We took 8 students to the 2018 Island Open in Parksville, and they did really well – they all placed in the medals,” says Angela Humphrey, who with husband Jason Humphrey have been welcoming students of all ages and experience levels since 2015. “A lot of the clubs attending from the Island and Mainland have been competing at this level for years. It was a really great experience.”

While celebrating their students’ competition success, it’s individual rewards – whatever those may be – that resonate most with the Twin Dragon team, Angela says, pointing to their motto: “Persevere, and you can accomplish anything!”

As instructors, their goal is to help students improve their mind, body and balance while they train, supporting students as they work toward achieving their goals.

A family-based martial arts school

Proud to be a family-based martial arts school, Jason and Angela are both on the floor instructing, along with their eldest daughter, Alanna. Jason and Angela’s other two children Nakita and Leland (also holders of Black Belts) also love to help out assisting the students with their training. This family approach extends into the student base, where they often see siblings or parents and children having fun – building self-confidence, focus and fitness – together.

“When new visitors come into the school, they feel that caring atmosphere,” Angela says. “We see the potential in each of our students – their unique strengths – and tell them, ‘It’s not about the medal around your neck, it’s that you go out and do your absolute best every day.’”

But that accessible, community-based setting doesn’t mean Twin Dragons instructors are any less experienced or professional. A member of the

World Taekwondo Federation, all instructors hold current WTF Black Belt certifications.

Recognizing that starting a new program, with new people in a new setting can be daunting no matter what your age, Twin Dragons offers prospective students two weeks of free classes to see if it’s a good fit, Angela notes.

And classes are ongoing, so there’s no need to wait for a new session – stop by for a visit today or check them out online at or on Facebook!
