ABout ARCAN

Bringing together ARGENTINA and Canada through taekwon-do

ARCAN Taekwon-Do was formed in 2002 in San Ignacio, Misiones, Argentina by Mr. Diego Cabanas. Mr. C moved to Canada and opened ARCAN Taekwon-Do Canada in 2010. We now have two locations: Main-Nepean and Riverside South

What is Taekwon-Do

Taekwon-Do is the Korean art of self-defense, created by General Choi Hong Hi in 1955. 

Our curriculum covers all elements of traditional ITF Taekwon-Do: fundamental movements, patterns, breaking, step sparring, free sparring, self-defense and conditioning.

Client Testimonials

Our son has been going to ARCAN Taekwon-Do for 3 years now and he loves it. We are so proud of everything he has accomplished at ARCAN. My wife goes to the boot camps to train with Ms. Perry and I have started as a beginning student at ARCAN as well. Mr Cabanas, Ms Perry, Mr Fernandez and all the instructors do such a great job developing, challenging and encouraging their students. The school is neat, clean and the environment is always positive. We feel very lucky to part of this fantastic school and kind community of people.Our son has been going to ARCAN Taekwon-Do for 3 years now and he loves it.

Our experience with ARCAN has been nothing but the Best!! Our two kids attend TKD twice a week and they Love it! Mr. Cabanas and Ms.Perry are outstanding instructors, teaching the kids discipline, respect and self confidence. Ms. Perry is also a personal trainer, and trains me a couple days a week. I have never felt better! She motivates me to push myself and helps me accomplish my goals. I know we will be with the ARCAN family for many more years!!Our experience with ARCAN has been nothing but the Best!! Our two kids attend TKD twice a week and they Love it!

I am a mother of three and have been a member of Arcan since 2010. We have a fun group of students, parents and instructors. Mr. Cabanas is an excellent instructor and coach, and takes time to help each and every student reach their full potential. Whether you are simply looking for a fun way to get in shape/meet new people/learn self-defence or want to compete locally, nationally or internationally, this is a great martial arts school. I like the variety of activities we do in class, such as fitness, self-defence, sparring and board-breaking, to name a few. I especially love that I can practise taekwon-do with my kids. It is a great activity for the whole family no matter your age or fitness level.I am a mother of three and have been a member of Arcan since 2010.
