About Us



Opened its doors in Granite City Illinois in April 2003 at 3210 Nameoki Road. Mr. Murdock having 31 years martial arts experience at that time ran a full time school in Granite City while working a full time job with the US Army Corps of Engineers in St. Louis Mo. Prior to opening the Granite City location, Mr. Murdock owned and operated Murdock’s Taekwondo in Mattoon Illinois and also owned a location in Charleston South Carolina. In January 2012 Murdock’s Taekwondo relocated to its present location at 3717A Nameoki Road, Granite City Il. Since then Mr. Murdock has continually changed the lives of many Granite City, Metro East and St. Louis youth and adults. Through his continuing education of teaching martial arts he was awarded the Title of Master Instructor in July of 2015.

Our goal at Murdock’s Taekwondo is to create independent and healthy individuals through physical and mental training.
