Pulse Martial Arts Academy is the leading performance martial arts school in Canada. Combining traditional & modern movement to create a generation of high performance athletes to excel in competition, life, and on the stage! The Pulse philosophy and vision was founded by Master Emerson Wong, a 5th dan in WTF taekwondo as well as expert in various other martial arts disciplines. Master Wong was a graduate of Ryerson’s Information Technology program and Computer Science and Engineering. Combining his love of interior design and new media has allowed him to craft high-tech one-of-a-kind martial arts schools that are some of the most beautiful in Canada.
Master Wong is also an active stuntman and fight coordinator for Hollywood films and also a co-founder of one of the most famous extreme martial arts teams in the World, “Team Ryouko”. Leading by example is something that Master Wong strongly believes in as a humanitarian with projects in Haiti and programs locally at Toronto Sick Kids Hospital.
Pulse is unique in that along with a strong competition focused taekwondo program, we are able to combine modern and contemporary martial arts movement blended with gymnastics, high-flying acrobatics, and performance arts all under one roof! We separate ourselves from others by designing our extensive programming to enlighten students to push themselves to achieve excellence while still remaining true to the tenants of Taekwondo: Honesty, Integrity, Respect, Self Discipline, and Indomitable Spirit.
Our mission is to use martial arts as a tool to develop life and leadership skills through curriculum based belt ranking training. We aim to create athletes that support one another in a positive and family oriented environment. To create high performance athletes that excel in local and international competitions and also perform in film and television or print media! At Pulse Academy, achieving your black belt is really just the beginning, the beginning of an exciting journey that will always be a part of your life!
