Stephanie Haydel

Owner and Chief Instructor at Northshore Taekwondo in Mandeville, 5th Degree Black Belt

Northshore Taekwondo is a sleek and modern studio offering a complete fitness program through taekwondo training. We focus on developing kids into future leaders through a family friendly training environment!

Fitness in the home is so important  -  we see how setting up good healthy habits early on greatly it impacts families every day! Many of our adult members are parents of our younger students, teens love to blow off steam with us and gain a positive body image, and kids have an absolute blast in our fitness featured high energy classes.

Are you a total beginner or nervous to start something really cool but new? That’s ok!

Our students come from all walks of life and start at different fitness levels. We love to work with beginners and elite athletes alike too. No matter what your starting level is, you’ll get a great workout, gain lean muscle, and learn techniques to keep you and your family safe.

Controlled, fast-paced, and fun movements are led by expert instructors. Many students have no prior experience...and they are amazing at how quickly they advance! Through positive reinforcement, goal setting, and just as many high fives as high kicks our students thrive.

Below are some of the things to expect in our classes, this way you’re not as nervous on your first day! Some benefits and techniques in our classes both our kids and adult members experience are:

Kids focus on life skills, learning a healthy respect for authority, and having fun with fitness. In these fast-paced, enriching classes kids learn how to be bully-proof! Learning how to spot sticky situations so they can walk away before things get bad is one of the key factors we teach but…
