Northeast Taekwondo is one of the pioneer Martial Arts schools in the Capital District. Owned and operated by Grand Master Les Zampino, our school was established in 1977 and has become the longest operating Taekwondo Academy in the area! Northeast is also chartered by the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU), providing many benefits to our members.
      At Northeast TKD, we believe that the art of Taekwondo is much more than a sport. It is a life-style of physical and mental training proven to develop the complete being - physically and mentally. We accomplish this by providing a positive learning environment, while remembering that each student has their own strengths and limitations. Our students develop at their own pace and this development is continually reinforced by the five tenants of Taekwondo (courtesy, integrity, perseverance, self-control, indomitable spirit).
