We are a Black Belt School.

Home to over 60 National Champions - Mill Valley since 1983

Founded in 1983 by Master Roger Carlon, West America Tae Kwon Do is a family-run dojo specializing in traditional martial arts training.

West America Tae Kwon Do opened in 1983 and is located in Mill Valley, CA. Since then, Master Roger Carlon has been training students in both classic traditional forms and new ventures into the competitive fighting aspects of Tae Kwon Do.

West America TKD continues to produce not only premier black belt students, but also honorable citizens in our local community. The ultimate goal is to use our fun and positive environment to guide and build well-rounded students and individuals.

We are so excited to announce that after a successful 2015-16 school year, we will again be offering the West America After Care Program for the 2016-17 school year. We understand that there is a need for a comprehensive after school program where students can receive professional tutoring, creative enrichment, and supervised play.

The director for this program is Mr. Dylan Kersh-Oliva. Dylan has been working with young people as a teacher, tutor, and coach for over 12 years. He plans to use his experience and his Master’s in Education to design a program that will significantly help students to extend their learning and grow as individuals.

Sensei Roger Carlon, Founder of West America Tae Kwon Do and AfterCare, will be overseeing the program.

  • The enrichment program is open until 6 PM, Monday through Friday
  • Professional tutors that will directly support and extend the school curriculum
  • Homework will be completed daily (no more late nights at home!)
