Meet Adam Sterner

Owner and Chief Instructor at
Sterner's Tae Kwon Do Academy in Herndon
6th Dan Black Belt


You have taken your first step in the journey of becoming a martial artist. Thousands of people start training in a martial arts program, but only one in every hundred students sticks with a program to achieve a blackbelt. The instructors at Sterner 's Tae Kwon Do Academy will offer you the professional training you will need to achieve this ranking.

The instructors at Sterner 's Tae Kwon Do Academy want this to be a fun learning experience for anyone who partakes in the program. We consider ourselves a martial arts family, and want you to feel free to discuss any problems or concerns that may affect your participation and/or performance with your training.

The participation of Tae Kwon Do consists of both mental and physical training. Not only will this training be in the classroom, but it will stick with you throughout your everyday life. By practicing the art consistently, one will become more self-disciplined, in better physical shape, and have more self-esteem. This is a great opportunity for you, so work hard and we will all watch you succeed.
