AR TKD is owned by Preston Stiles and operated by the tight-knit Stiles family. Before Preston stepped up as a leader, he and his family were simply just martial artists who were training at the location. He rose to the challenge when the original owner, Master Bob Blankenship, retired to enjoy time chasing the grandkids. The academy wasn’t just a place to get fit and spar – it’s a legacy of learning, family, and provides a safe place for people to become better individuals. What started off as a weekly passion project in a church eventually evolved into an established school that is decorated with national titles.
