Black Belt World has been in operation for over 20 years and is a World Class, Premiere Martial Arts and Taekwondo School in Downtown Toronto, which also serves as the headquarters for Black Belt World Canada. We recently moved the Downtown Academy to a new facility. The new facility is now located directly above McDonald’s, right across the street from the Ossington Subway-Bus Station, at the South East corner of Ossington and West Bloor Street.

Black Belt World is truly committed to all of our students. We provide them with the leadership and guidance required for the physical and mental advancement necessary with Martial Arts training. We avidly believe students can achieve a powerful body and strong mind, while enduring discipline and ethical direction with the proper guidance and training available from our certified instructors, whether you are just starting out on your Taekwondo journey or already possess prior knowledge.

Our Downtown Toronto Black Belt World location also services as a High Performance Athletes and Coaches (HPAC) training facility. In addition, we provide training for actors and stunt people in the television and film industries at our Taekwondo Downtown Toronto School. Even though there is a diverse range of students, we still maintain a family-oriented environment, fun for children and adults of all ages.

The goal of Black Belt World is to train students to be successful both in Martial Arts and Taekwondo and in their daily lives. To this end, we strive to provide leadership and guidance to help our students become Provincial and National Champions, as well as Champions of Life.

Black Belt World’s First Class Martial Arts and Taekwondo instructors provide a well-balanced blend of Martial Arts and Taekwondo training and physical fitness, which is fast-paced, fun, and energetic, no matter you age, current, skill level, or current fitness level.
