The LaRue County Chamber of Commerce held a ribbon cutting on September 18 for the opening of the new location of Sallee’s Family Taekwondo in Hodgenville.

Sallee’s Family Taekwondo opened their Hodgenville school in 1997 at their original location on North Lincoln Boulevard. The Sallee’s also have a school in Campbellsville which was established in 2005. The Hodgenville school recently moved to their new location on 106 Greensburg Street, behind Lincoln National Bank in downtown Hodgenville.

The Hodgenville location offers taekwondo for any age and skill level. Class times are Tuesdays with beginners from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. and advanced from 7:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., Wednesdays from 6 - 7 p.m. for all levels and Fridays from 6:30 to 8 p.m. for all levels. A sparring class for higher ranks is also held on Fridays.

Owner Randal Sallee Jr. is a fourth degree black belt and has been training black belts for over 20 years. Sallee said he believes learning the skill of taekwondo is important for everyone.

“Taekwondo helps people with self discipline and how to have a good work ethic. In today’s world, these attributes seem to be forgotten,” Sallee said. “Of course, everyone needs to learn self defense in this violent society. It also helps people learn that they can succeed at anything if they put the time and effort into it.”
