More About Us

Our Background & Philosophy

Dream U.S. Tae Kwon Do was born out of a simple idea: bringing high-quality, accessible, and affordable Taekwondo instruction to the entire community. Our approach to individuals and families, and top quality instructors makes Dream U.S. Tae Kwon Do one of the best Taekwondo schools in the South Bay since 2008.

We are a registered Taekwondo school with Kukkiwon in Korea.  This means our Grand Master is an accredited instructor and certificates for Black Belts 1st Degree and higher are registered at Kukkiwon and awarded by them.

Luchia Garvey

Head Master

Master Luchia is a true South Bay local.  She grew up and participated in many athletics in the South Bay, venturing in dance, swim, and Karate.  She found her passion in Martial Arts when she was 10 years old and her great passion in teaching at 12. She completed her Black Belt in Shotokan Karate and continued to explore the arts. At the age of 15 started her journey in Tae Kwon Do with Grand Master Pak and  Master Adam at DUSTKD. She brings 15+ years of experience. She wishes to raise the levels of confidence within her students just as the arts and past Masters have gifted to her.

Master Luchia:

"Martial Arts is a way of life. It grows with you and applies at every stage whether you are a child, teen, adult, even into parenthood. There is always so much to learn. I can't wait to train with you and learn from you aswell."
