    Adult Martial Arts Classes
    This is a Martial Art, Not a Sport

    We don't train for competition. Traditional TaeKwonDo was developed by the Korean Military as a combat art, not a sport.

What Makes Us Different?

Tradtional TaeKwonDo vs. Sport Martial Arts

Grand Master Jim has 36 years of experience in Tae Kwon Do.  Because experience counts he leads every exercise and teaches every class. Some of our students have been with us for 20 years. Grand Master Jim is teaching the children of some of the students who once started out in his kids classes so long ago!!!   What seperates us from the rest is our focus on traditional martial arts instead of the sport/competitive aspect. Self-defense against multiple attackers, weapons training and working on being a better person not the middle weight champion set us apart.
Our childrens classes work on self-control & self-discipline while keeping fit & having fun.

The character-building traits of courtesy, integrity, perseverance, self-control & indomitable spirit are taught along with the martial arts.  Sport/competetive martial arts focus on achieving trophies which eventually gather dust.  The sport oriented martial arts don't have a lot to offer older students who aren't looking for competition.  Traditional TaeKwonDo focuses on self-discipline & self-control.  Children will notice improved concentration & discipline.  Adults will benefit from the excercise & practical self-defense technique.  These character traits last forever

The adult classes not only provide a great work-out and increase flexibility but also teach realistic self-defense utilizing punches, kicks, elbows & knees. Groundfighting or grappling along with the joint-lock techniques of HapKiDo give the students the ability to defend themselves from any position. Weapons training is a part of the students curiculum to round-out the martial arts knowledge of the student. We do not mix the childrens & adult classes because we don't want to water-down the technique to make it safer for the children. Tuition is always month-to-month rather than forcing students to sign contracts.

Class Prices

Unfortunately it seems to be a new rule not to give out your tuition costs over the phone or on the web...

Our tuition is simple, $65 per month for two classes a week for junior students and three days a week for adults. For $85 per month both kids and adults can attend unlimited classes at both of our gyms.  Grand Master Jim started classes as a kid who paid for his own lessons. We understand how many activities for kids there are out there that demand a lot of money for equipment etc. We believe in Tae Kwon Do as the best method for achieving discipline, fitness and self-control. No one should have to be unable to attend because the price is too high
