ABOUT TOP TAEKWONDO
TOP Taekwondo Academy, is a place where students are able to learn at their own pace, in a nurturing and encouraging environment.
Established in the year 2012, by founding Principal Master Song Jeong Ho. Since its humble inception as a small dojang in Upper Serangoon Shopping Centre, the dojang has grown to establish its presence in the local Taekwondo scene, particularly in the North Eastern region of Singapore.
What’s special about TOP Taekwondo Academy?
The members of the dojang affectionately regard the school as a second home, and takes pride in the close knit community, with people from all walks of life. Despite the diversity in background, personality and lifestyle, they have learnt to pursue the sport at their own pace and have a good time learning together, taking home more than just improved knowledge and skills.
Many parents sent their children for lessons, with the aim to equip them with the skills and confidence to defend themselves. The focus of the Taekwondo training here is not about acquiring the skills needed to execute the perfect punch and kick, but also to inculcate good values that will see them through the challenges in life.
About Master Song Jeong Ho
Master Song is a native of South Korea, who bravely took a big step out of his homeland. He is well adored by all in the dojang, and is well regarded by parents to be a very patient and effective teacher. His teaching philosophies revolve around bringing out the best in his students. He made the bold decision to venture out of Korea, hoping to share his passion for Taekwondo with people around the world.
The focus of Master Song’s early journey in Taekwondo was on Kyorugi and Demonstrations, where he accumulated a wealth of experience in performances and competitions of varying levels. This experience has been put to good use, and it has allowed him to guide the students effectively during the preparation phase, as well as the actual performance.
He is not daunted by the many challenges that he faced while running the school, and would fondly recall and share the many inspiring personal challenges, successes and triumphs. One major personal challenge was to improve his command of the English Language, which he made much progress through the years of practice. Over the last years, he has also pushed himself to learn new techniques, and further enhancing his knowledge and skills in the various aspects of Taekwondo, again leading by example, that the learning journey never ends.

WHAT OUR STUDENTS SAY ABOUT TOP TAEKWONDO ACADEMY
Going to dojang has evolved from being a place for training, to a second home. The trainings have brought together strangers, who happen to love the sport, and made them an extended family. Being here at TOP has been an amazing experience for me.
I always wanted to do some martial arts but don’t know where to start until I came across the TOP Taekwondo banner near where I live. I signed up on my own, and unexpectedly made many like-minded friends. Now they are like my second family because I meet (or miss) them almost everyday!
The dojang is where we cheer each other on. Sometimes, we, the rookies couldn’t do the kicks that our seniors seem to do effortlessly but we get the encouragement to keep on trying. And when we finally did the kick correctly, cheers followed. That helps us grow together.
The Masters are good at promoting Taekwondo to the young ones. They have the patience and right attitude to train the kids No punishments or scoldings. A recommended Academy to expose your kids to Taekwondo.
A very cosy and welcoming training environment. Great for both the young, and young at heart.
I like the way they teach… my boy is enjoying himself very much during his Taekwondo lesson and always looking forward to it!
Finally I found a really good Taekwondo school in Singapore!
