Master Helbert Porter established Inner Strength Taekwondo Academy in 2002 and has worked hard to build not only a successful Academy, but also a thriving community. Our goal is to build our students into champions, make them more successful in life and to always influence them in a positive manner. To accomplish this, Master Porter instills a “ Never Give Up” attitude and a Champion’s Spirit in his students.

Inner Strength Taekwondo is a premiere Taekwondo Academy, where we teach WTF Taekwondo. WTF Taekwondo is the only style of Taekwondo that has Olympic status.

Classes are run for beginners (where no prior experience or fitness level is expected), all the way up to high level National and International competitors. Many Inner Strength athletes have reached the podium at National and International Competitions and landed a spot on the Inner Strength Taekwondo Wall of Fame. Many athletes from Inner Strength compete at local tournaments in the Maritimes, Nationals in Canada and International Open tournaments.

Our objective is to:

  • improve student’s mental discipline and health.
  • learn self defense skills
  • improve confidence and self respect
  • young children learn positive life skills in our age specific programs


We believe that by stressing strong family values with the teachings of Taekwondo, we can help develop well rounded children, teens and adults. Understanding that not everyone is created equally, but that everyone should have the opportunity to learn and experience the Korean martial art of Taekwondo. Our training programs are flexible for all individuals. We focus on discipline, self control, respect and honesty while training ourselves to become fit and healthy both mentally and physically.

We are glad you stopped by and hope you will drop into our Dojang and try one of our classes. We know once you meet our Taekwondo Family you will feel right at home.
