Our weeknight and Saturday programs feature two different martial art styles: Taekwon-do and Hapkido. They each have their own distinct curriculum and ranking system. The night program is open to both kids and adults.
Taekwon-do is a Korean martial art which means “The Way of the Hand and Foot” and practices self-defense, forms, free sparring, and breaking combinations. Taekwon-do is characterized by fast strikes yet control of movements. Since there is no contact, a student demonstrates technique through a series of one step combinations and board breaking. Classes start as young as 4 years old with the Little Tigers program.
Hapkido is a Korean martial art which includes strikes, forms, and practical self-defense techniques. Hapkido teaches a unique set of main skills to subdue and escape an opponent through joint locks and throws. A few sets of techniques include defense against wrist grabs and hugging. All Hapkido skills are designed to subdue an opponent without causing serious injury. Classes are offered for ages 7 and up.
