  • The next time someone tells you karate doesn't work in self defense.....

    I have heard this sooo many times. Karate doesn't work in self defense. Well thank goodness for MMA. These are real fights and self defense at its finest. We hope we never have to use our training to defend ourselves. But the great thing about our Tang Soo Do training is that we are training to hit and not be hit. That is the only intelligent way to defend ourselves. Not to trade shots and have a war but to land and not get hit. Lately Karate has been more and more popular in MMA with guys like Lyoto Machida, Michael Page, Raymond Daniels, Stephen Thompson, and Sage Northcutt.

  • Happy new year-Lets be lean and mean in 2017

    New years resolutions are always a big part of every new year!! But I encourage you to make a couple of New Years commitments in 2017. Parents don't let your kids slack off this year. If kids have it their way they would sit around and do nothing and play video games. Allow them so set goals and accomplish things. Yes they will complain sometimes and drive you crazy!! But don't give up. I have never an into a kid or adult that was glad they quit. They almost always say, "I wish I would have continued and gotten my black belt." It is one of the first major goals/accomplishments they can achieve at a young age. This type of thing helps them through high school, college and in their future ....

  • Do Not Quit

    Stop Coming to Class???!!!
    Let’s backtrack for a minute. When you brought your child to us you had very realistic goals for them. Above all else those goals were what brought you to bring your child to us. Somewhere along the way you lost sight of how important those goals were to you. As parents we want the very best for our children. That is why you thought our Martial Arts Facility was important for your children.
    What this means is, if kids had the option they would give up on almost everything worth their while. Eating vegetables, studying, going to school, etc. If the going gets tough or they “just don’t feel like it” everything important would fall to the wayside. ....
