About United Sports Tae Kwon Do in Downingtown, PA

United Sports Tae Kwon Do in Downingtown
3rd Degree Black Belt

United Sports Tae Kwon Do is a World Taekwondo Federation martial arts school in Downingtown, also serving Coatesville, West Chester, Exton, and the surrounding Brandywine Valley.

Our school has programs for all ages 4+.

Our 4-6 year-olds develop skills necessary to prepare them for kindergarten and the 1st Grade. These include self-control, listening, and training for how their minds and bodies work together. They build confidence and self-esteem and a sense of how to interact with other people.

Children age 7-11 learn traditional Tae Kwon Do, the world’s most popular martial art (over 70 million people worldwide in over 200 countries) and a modern-day Olympic sport. Emphasis is placed on 5 tenets: Courtesy, Integrity, Perseverance, and Indomitable Spirit. All of the training is designed to help children to improve in these areas and to become positive leaders and role models among their peers.

Our curriculum is recognized worldwide (not all martial arts schools are affiliated globally or even nationally). This means that your child’s training will be recognized anywhere should you move. Their Black Belts will be recognized worldwide throughout their lives. In addition, our students compete in state and national championships sanctioned by USA Taekwondo, the National Governing Body of the US Olympic Committee.

So for those students who are competitive, we offer the chance to compete at the highest level that martial arts has to offer.

Teens and adults looking for a great workout will love Tae Kwon Do. Regardless of your age and current level of athletic ability, Tae Kwon Do can help you to reach your highest level of fitness. But Tae Kwon Do is “More than Just Fitness.”

Learn practical, real-world self-defense skills in both our traditional Tae Kwon Do program and our Combat Hapkido programs, the latter focusing solely on self-defense. Adults looking to experience a fun and engaging activity WITH their children will love our classes! Tae Kwon Do is one of the few activities that you can do with the children for a shared experience that you can discuss in the car and at the dinner table.

Go through the ranks as a family for an experience you will treasure forever.

Mr. Robert Fox

Mr. Fox began training in martial arts in his early 30s when his close friend, Frank Lupo, Jr. opened a school. Mr. Fox never expected to fall in love with Tae Kwon Do, and never even considered that he would one day earn a Black Belt. Martial arts were a way to stay in shape and support his friend’s new business endeavor. It was the camaraderie amongst the students that drew him in.

People from different backgrounds and all walks of life came together under a common purpose – to become better versions of themselves. Mr. Fox earned his Fist Degree Black Belt from the Kukkiwon (World Taekwondo Headquarters) in 2007.

In January of 2009, Mr. Lupo passed away suddenly at the age of 37. It left all those who were privileged to know him in deep shock. At the time, Mr. Fox was a market research executive working with the largest clients in professional sports, entertainment, consumer goods, and pharmaceuticals. Following a merger and a layoff in 2010, having reflected on Mr. Lupo’s untimely passing, Mr. Fox made the decision to leave corporate America and teach full-time.

He approached United Sports Training Center in Downingtown and the school opened in early 2011. Mr. Fox currently holds a Third Degree from the Kukkiwon and a First Degree Black Belt in Combat Hapkido.
