Combat Hapkid0 National Training Conference

Hapkido logoTM Martial Arts considers it an honor to be the headquarter school for the International Combat Hapkido Federation. Founded by Grandmaster John Pellegrini, Combat Hapkido is an extremely realistic and versatile discipline of self-protection that includes an extensive variety of strikes, kicks, joint locks, pressure points, ground survival and disarming techniques. The result is a practical, comprehensive Self Defense system that is enjoyable to learn and truly effective in realistic situations. It is well suited for men and women of all ages and sizes because physical strength and athletic abilities are not essential.

Martial Arts Class Promotes Improved Behavior

taekwondo_kids_class

Martial Arts Promotes Improved behavior after just one class!

TM Martial Arts prides itself on providing quality martial arts classes to students 3 1/2 years and up. Often times, parents discover improved behavior in their children after just one class! That’s because every class is taught by experienced instructors, follows a unique class structure, and focuses on key components found within the curriculum.

By the end of the very first class, students have learned to respect their environment by properly stowing their shoes and coats, to respectfully address their elders as “Sir” or “Ma’am,” and have been exposed to our 10 Student Home Rules, which include statements such as “I will be truthful at all times,” and “I will not interrupt an adult conversation.”
