At Academy of Korean Martial Arts, we believe that an excellent martial arts school should offer much more than training to protect oneself from physical attacks. That's why our programs are designed so that our students not only learn effective, efficient, and modern self-defense, but just as importantly develop self-discipline, focus, self-control, respect, and countless other valuable life skills.
In today's world we have many threats to our minds and bodies. Our young people are bombarded with negative influences and peer pressure while they are seriously searching for the confidence and high character that seems to be missing in many of their popular role models. Adults are under more stress than ever while most seek a healthier lifestyle. It seems that we all daily face a variety of daily challenges.
With these challenges in mind we have structured our classes to help our younger students earn the confidence they need to stand by their values and face difficult situations in everyday life while our Adult program is designed to develop the ability and confidence needed for effective self-defense, increase flexibility, provide a total body workout, and improve focus and concentration.
For centuries, the martial arts of Korea have focused on the time-honored principles:
Service to Country
Respect for Parents and Teachers
Honor and Loyalty among Friends
Courage to Take the Right Action
Prudence in the Use of Combat Skills
While holding deeply to these traditional values, the courses of instruction at Academy of Korean Martial Arts are structured for modern students in today's society. The style we teach, TeukGong MooSool, is the official martial art of the Korean Special Forces and is considered to be one of the most practical, innovative, and efficient self-defense systems. (We think it's THE most!) Our teaching methods, training facility, and equipment are cutting-edge. In fact, Academy of Korean Martial Arts is the only school in the United States certified as an "Excellent School" by the International TeukGong MooSool Federation based in Seoul, Korea.
