These classes teach a martial arts discipline called Tae Kwon Do. We also incorporate a little bit of Hapkido & Judo in our classes. Tae Kwon Do is a Korean variation of Karate and will include foot and hand techniques, forms and sparring. Hapkido is a set of non-aggressive techniques using joint locks and twists ideal for self defense. Judo and Jiu-Jitsu is a Japanese discipline that involves the entire body and mind. Judo has many throws and holds in order to control an opponent as well as learn the art of break-falling. Jiu-Jitsu has the most efficient methods for neutralizing an enemy in the form of pins, joint locks, and throws. Intro to Martial Arts is made possible through a partnership with the Park’s Martial Arts Academy. Instructors from Parks Martial Arts Academy have decades of teaching experience and are excellent at working with students of all abilities. Check out a class this spring or fall!
