Locally the Kootenay Christian Martial Arts children’s program is headed up by Master Siminoff and his staff of Black Belts who are certified instructors.

With perseverance and good parental support these kids will become Tae Kwon Do Black Belts.
Rowan has been in Martial Arts with Master Dean for many years. Each year she has become more and more confident with her TKD and her overall personality. She has overcome many obstacles outside of TKD because of her training. Now she faces her fears head-on with a positive attitude. The entire staff at Kootenay Martial Arts has been great at nurturing her growth but also giving her the confidence to succeed at whatever Rowan puts her mind to.
Thank-you Master Dean and the entire staff at Kootenay Martial Arts.
