Annette Dancel

Chief Instructor & Owner

Annette began training in the art of Tae Kwon Do at the age of 17, and later pursued her dreams by opening her own Tae Kwon Do Academy in 2008. She opened the academy for the sole purpose of serving anyone and everyone who is willing to better their lives through Martial Arts, with the mindset to constantly master their strengths and minimize their weaknesses. She promotes the “Yes I can! Yes I will!” attitude and implements this concept not only into the core values of Martial Arts, but in personal life skills as well, which she believes will assist in having one LIVE THEIR BEST LIFE!

Dancel’s Academy of Tae Kwon Do (DATKD) welcomes both children and adults, and finds pride in promoting family unification. DATKD’s core values include discipline, technique, self-defense, and character development in a fun and family-oriented atmosphere.
