Programs & Classes

DaeHanMoodo: Youth & Adult Martial Arts

Earn a Black Belt in a traditional martial art based on the mighty combinations of Taekwondo, Hapkido and Judo. Taekwondo, the popular new Olympic event, is known for its powerful kicking and striking techniques. Hapkido is a highly sophisticated martial art based on mirroring and redirecting an opponent's energy. Joint manipulation, pressure points, and circular motion are the characteristic tools of Hapkido. Judo is an age-old art that is best summed up in the axiom 'maximum effect for minimum effort.' Here we learn to use our bodies leverage to overcome our opponents both while standing and on the ground. More than just a system of self-defense, our program becomes a way of life, which promotes social responsibility, inner harmony, physical health and personal excellence. All of this is accomplished in a positive atmosphere of excitement and fun. A tremendous development program for children too!

Hi there - my son had a really bad day at school yesterday and when he came out of class last night his words were: "Thanks for bringing me to class mom. I feel so much better. I had a lot of pent up energy and feel better. I will behave in school better tomorrow." Really awesome words from a 10 year old!!!

Ms. S, Academy Parent

"Since I stepped in AMA [Academy of Martial Arts] I began to grow into a different person. The support, guidance and friendship from AMA have probably changed me the most [...]. Taekwondo has really helped me become mentally, physically, and academically successful and allowed me to live up to my full potential."

Kay G., Teen

"I have [...] learned to focus harder and to try new things I have never done before. I use [these skills] at school to stay focused and confident."

Alexander G., Junior Taekwondo
