Welcome to Family Martial Arts Center
Our school strives to instill the basic life virtues of discipline, respect, integrity, and confidence. These qualities have been the foundation of the martial arts student since the beginning. The staff of Family Martial Arts Center helps reinforce each quality trait through “Leading by Example.” Our children of the future need positive role models that will set the right example. Our instructors make this the first priority.
No martial arts school is complete without the proper credentials. Family Martial Arts Center is proud to be part of the United States Chung Do Kwan Association. This organization provides our school and instructors with authentic certification from Korea and the World TaeKwonDo Federation. Along with credentials, the USCDKA also provides instruction and training to the black belt instructors so that we may continue to provide outstanding instruction to your family.
When we opened this location in 2005 and the time came to choose a name, many parents/students made the comment that, “It’s like family here!” and so our school name was chosen by the “Family” atmosphere we provide. It is our goal everyday to continue to make you feel like family. As you tour the school and meet the staff, feel free to ask any questions. We have an open door policy and welcome your comments and ideas to make this great school even better!
What Is TaeKwonDo?
Most new students think all styles of martial arts are the same. When it comes down to the facts, a punch and kick may be the same but each style will vary in its foundation and application. This info will give you a better understanding of what you or your family will be learning.
To break it down, Tae means to strike with foot, Kwon means to strike with the hand, and Do is the use of the mind. TaeKwonDo consist of blocks and strikes designed for self-defense. The instructors do not teach students that show the desire to use the skills learned in class to bully, attack, or be aggressive towards people. TaeKwonDo is a martial art that uses fluid technique with speed and power to produce great skill. During your training, you will find that TaeKwonDo is a fun energy filled sport that will challenge the student. During the course of training, students that meet the requirements will have the opportunity to test for a new belt promotion and climb the ladder of success to black belt!
As students progress through the classes, the foundation of martial arts is instilled into the student. Through example, students learn respect, self-discipline, integrity, goal setting, Patience, and perseverance. For example, we teach that a new white belt may set a short-term goal for their yellow belt and a long-term goal for black belt. As students achieve these goals, it builds confidence that goals can be reached with a little work. Students will now take these goals into their adult life and apply them to school or career goals. The building blocks of TaeKwonDo will forever live with a student as they apply them to the road of life.
TaeKwonDo is not only for fun but also for competition. Students may choose to compete in martial arts tournaments to win trophies and medals for their hard work. Students that posses the right drive and talent may even compete in the Olympics and go for the gold!
If your desire is self-defense, physical exercise, or concentration, martial arts is the answer for the needs of you or your child. TaeKwonDo is one of the only sports that a family can do together. Don’t sit on the sidelines, get involved and be a part of the family at Family Martial Arts Center!
