A Great Place to Learn About Yourself and Martial Arts by
KC Spiker -
After a twenty year absence form martial arts training and at the age of 40, Master Malm and his instructors welcomed me into their program without any hint of cynicism or patronizing attitude. I chose this school because of the positive attitude of the program. There were many young kids, and I watched as Master Malm enjoyed working with boys and girls of all ages, imbuing them with a sense of self-confidence and fun. As there were also several young women in the program, I could tell that this school was not just another all male "in-your-face" martial arts program.I felt that I was very competently trained. While having fun, there was an underlying seriousness to learning the physical, philosophical and emotional aspects of martial arts. The black belt members were more interested in sharing information and making the younger participants better than they were in showing how "bad-ass" they could be. I highly recommend Desert Taekwondo to any individual interested in learning the martial arts. Kamsa Hamnida, Master Malm!

Master Malm is a great instructor. He has a friendly martial arts school. It is my opinion that with him you will learn the right way. He has a lot of years of experience in many martial arts styles. I hope you enjoy been with him...
A great school and great instructors! by
Having studied at other schools and seen what some other âmasterâ instructors offer and claim, I can truly testify to Master Malmâs lineage and professionalism. There is no smoke and mirrors at Desert TKD, just dedicated, QUALFIED instructors that take pride in not only teaching martial arts but ensuring the students understand the meaning of the movements. Master Malm has dedicated himself to the preservation of the arts through his continued studies and commitment through teaching.

Great school for kids and parents by
Before finding Desert TKD, I tried other TKD schools. I was disappointed by their scripted teaching methods and impersonal character. It was like taking my son to Gymboree rather than martial arts training. At Desert TKD, Master Malm and his wife Amy truly care about the art of Taekwondo and work very hard to teach all students to be courteous as well as victorious. This is not some corporate franchise, but rather a training center that is genuinely interested in each and every student. I started with my son training there but decided later to join in on the fun and exercise. Now I'm hooked. If you're looking for mental discipline, physical conditioning, and top-notch martial arts instruction in an environment where all students have a great attitude, you must try Desert TKD.

I went to DTKD as an adult, seeking to gain fitness, and knowledge of a martial art. I'm now a black belt. Master Malm and his wife Amy (a 4th degree) are excellent examples to their students and truly make you feel like family. The classes are challenging but fun. I know now that I can defend myself in any situation. And I owe that to the awesome teaching I received at DTKD.
An outstanding Martial Arts School for Children of all ages. by
The atmosphere at Desert TKD is positive, upbeat, and conducive to learning. It really feels like a second home. Master Malm is well educated and very professional. He is an example to all his students, young and old. If you are looking to build self esteem and character, while learning to defend yourself, then I highly recommend studying under the direction of Master Malm.
