WHAT WE OFFER

TKD_S.png

TAEKWONDO

A Korean style of martial arts emphasizing kicks, punches, and blocks. Loosely translated, Taekwondo reads “the art of the foot and fist.” Strikes with the leg are particularly emphasized because the leg is the longest and strongest weapon/tool that a martial artist has. Taekwondo excels at developing students in important physical skills – strength, speed, balance, stamina, and flexibility. This popular art also excels at reinforcing mental skills, including discipline, patience, etiquette, respect, and self-confidence.

JUDO

Judo_s2.png

A Japanese style of martial arts based on traditional Ju-Jitsu fighting and self-defense techniques. Movements involve numerous throwing and grappling techniques which include the use of pin-downs, chokes, arm bars, and escapes. Techniques combine timing, balance and off-balancing, direction of movement, and momentum with the use of leverage to achieve greater power against an opponent or, in a self-defense situation, an attacker. Judo is the foundation for numerous military/police tactics around the world.

Get REAL: A Safety Guide for Women and Teen Girls

"Self-Defense is more than kicking and punching; more than "stranger danger". It's also awareness, self esteem, body language and emotional boundary setting. Most of the attacks on women are not by strangers, but by someone they know. This unique approach to self defense, along with the author's own experiences, will give women and teen girls awareness skills to avoid a physical confrontation, as well as valuable tools to defend themselves physically should they be left with no alternatives."
