Featured Business: Ya Taekwondo

The Pocket Greenhaven Community Association’s Featured Business is iYa Taekwando, join us as we get to know its owner Xai Lor:

Devin: Thank you for taking the time to tell us about iYa Taekwando. Can you tell us a little about the school?

Xai: iYa Taekwondo is the Greenhaven Pocket’s Taekwondo School. There is a great sense of family with the students and parents because everyone knows everyone. The saying, “it takes a village to raise a child,” well, we are doing that. I like to believe that iYa Taekwondo is one of the pillars of the foundation of discipline for some of our children in this area. My team and I are serious about our duties to our students and parents. We teach our students to be courteous, respectful, work harding, have self-discipline, be courageous in the face of oppression or obstacle and stay focus on one’s goals. It’s the iYa way of life. We live by it and we teach it.

Devin: We’re excited to have your great new Italian eatery here in the Pocket! But we shouldn’t say, welcome, right? As I understand it, you already called the Pocket your home.

Katie: Yes! We live here in the Pocket. It’s a short five minute commute to the restaurant. Jonathan has been cooking in Sacramento for 30 years, with commutes ranging from downtown to El Dorado Hills. I have been managing restaurants in the Sacramento Area as well as opened several restaurants and hotels around the country with Commune Hospitality. But we wanted to work close to home in the community that we love. We wanted to bring a fun, affordable spin to the Pocket Area.

Devin Lavelle: We’ve enjoyed the flowers you provided to decorate the Pride of the Pocket Awards this spring, but can you tell us a little more about your business?

Amanda Kitaura: Bloom is a small, family-owned floral delivery subscription service in Sacramento. We deliver fresh, local bouquets right to you each week or month. Our blooms are perfect, everyday bouquets ready to bring some joy to your home or office! All of our blooms come from right here in Northern California — either from our own small farm or from local flower farmers. Unlike companies that import flowers from other countries or far-flung parts of the country, our blooms are sourced right here in Northern California. You’ll be supporting farmers less than a day’s drive away from Sacramento and getting the freshest flowers possible at the same time. I offer one-time deliveries, flower subscriptions, and flowers for weddings and other events.
