Our main discipline includes both Tae Kwon Do and Hapkido which are Korean Martial Arts. Tae Kwon Do is one of the world's most commonly practiced forms of Martial Arts. In the Korean language, “Tae” means “kick or destroy with the foot”, “Kwon” means "punch or smash with the hand or fist", and “Do” means "way or art". In translation Tae Kwon Do is taken to mean "the way of the foot and the fist."

Tae Kwon Do is also popular because of its ease in learning and effectiveness as a form of self-defense. It is characterized by the use of high standing and jump kicks as well as punches and is practiced for sport, self-defense, and spiritual development.

Hapkido is a Martial Art that stresses domination of one's opponent through the eclectic use of joint-locks, throws, choking, tackling, kicking, and punching. It is the kind of Martial Art that will enable the young and old alike to protect themselves from the danger of attack with very little effort.
