Covid-19 had a very significant impact on the local market of martial arts schools and institutions of similar purpose. Yet Virtue Taekwondo persevered through the difficult season.
Several of our competitors have closed down directly or indirectly due to the pandemic (Champions Martial Arts, Master Shin's TKD Center, Sumner Taekwondo, Kiai Martial Arts).
We have identified several other schools who remain in the market, yet we are confident pose no serious threat to our business goals (Dragons Karate, Pinnacle MA, Tiger Kim's Pro TKD)
