TKDo Martial Arts Celebrates Grand Opening July 3

Monday, July 2, 2018

After 28 years of practicing and teaching martial arts, TKDo Martial Arts opened their first business and studio doing what they love.  Lifelong friends and business partners Keldren Iclet and Trey Kilgore announce the opening of their newly formed martial arts studio, 5035 Ooltewah-Ringgold Rd STE 135, in Ooltewah.  On July 3 from 11 a.m.-6:30 p.m., the studio will hold their Grand Opening during the City of Collegedale’s Freedom Celebration and fireworks.   Refreshments will be provided.  TKDo demonstrations are running throughout July 3 at Imagination Station.   

Senior Instructor Kilgore started his journey in martial arts at 5 years old. He spent his waking moments thinking about martial arts, training and practicing in his free time. Before long, he would spend most of his free time at the studio where he trained.  By age eight, he received his instructor certificate and began teaching his peers. By age 12, he would teach adults too. 

Senior Instructor Kilgore competed in tournaments around the country.  For seven years he competed in Taekwondo at a national level. He received some of the highest honors a martial artist can achieve.

"TKDo Martial Arts was born from this commitment and it’s our highest priority goal to share within our community. Martial Arts is a lifestyle, sparked by interest to nurture commitment and at any level of natural talent, you can excel here.  TKDo believes if you can excel here, you can excel anywhere. We hope you take what you learn here and apply it to your life. We encourage you to become a part of the TKDo family. The coming milestones we will share together," officials said.
