Founded in 2001, by Master Javier Cruz, Black Belt Institute has always been strongly focused on traditional Tae Kwon Do. Over time, Master Cruz has refined the techniques and style he's learned from his professor in order to adapt to a more modern style of Tae Kwon Do. Motivated by the progress and success of his students, Master Cruz has been able to coach his students to compete at a high level in the majority of the competitions his students participate in. Year after year, even the timidest students have been able to come out of their shells when participating in the classes of Master Cruz. Master Cruz understands every student is unique and makes sure they're all receiving the attention necessary to see progress in order to build confidence. At Black Belt Institute, nothing makes us more proud than to see the progress students make throughout the years.
