Our Black Belt Instructors here at Endurance Taekwondo are some of the best in their craft; teaching dynamic martial arts classes which seamlessly balance exercise, skill development, and personal development. Through this, we instill a sense of confidence, pride, and motivation in our students so that they will continue to bring out the best in themselves, both in and out of class.


Our instructors are certified under the Canadian Red Cross Level C Standard First Aid & CPR. The health and safety of our students are a top priority; we’re proud to have a team equipped with the knowledge to respond to events from minor scrapes to life-threatening emergencies

Master Milad Bahrami

Owner/Chief Instructor

Master Milad Bahrami, like most lifelong Martial Artists, got involved in Taekwondo as a kid who loved watching martial arts movies. His passion only grew stronger during his teen years, as he competed in Olympic Style Taekwondo on a National level.

During University, Master Milad also worked full-time as the youngest Head Instructor of Grand Master Ji Sun Choi’s “Choi’s Martial Arts”. He continued to excel in the role as Head Instructor for Master Tony Kook’s Academies: North Shore Taekwondo, West Vancouver Taekwondo, and Bowen Island Taekwondo.

Master Milad’s key philosophy is that Taekwondo has something to offer for everyone; Taekwondo is a vehicle for developing your potential. Training will relieve stress, improve focus, and instill confidence that will reflect in daily life.
