5th Degree Black Belt
"Training in Taekwondo at Devito's Taekwondo with my twin boys has been one of the best experiences of my life. To watch them, grow physically and emotionally under the incredible instruction of the DeVito's and share the experience of achieving black belt is something that we will never forget. There are many places to study martial arts in Westchester, but the choice to study DeVito's is one of the best you will ever make and will change your life."
