Adult Kong Soo Do
Kong Soo Do is both a hard and soft style. The style gets its arts of self-defense from Soo Bahk Do and Tae Kyun, its fighting principles from Northern and Southern Chinese Kung-Fu, and its “moral guidelines” such as philosophy from the Tao, Lao Tzu, and Confucious. The style was created as a traditional, non-competitive style, meaning that the training is primarily directed towards the practice of self-defense, as opposed to its younger sister style of Tae Kwon Do that was created as a sport with its training primarily directed towards competition. Kong Soo Do practitioners strive to always better themselves both outside (physically) and inside (spiritually).
Classes are Monday, Tuesday & Thursday: 6:00-7:30 pm and Tuesday & Thursday: 7:30 – 9:00 pm (upper belts)
White Crane Tai Chi
A low-intensity exercise, Tai Chi enhances balance and body awareness through slow, rhythmic body movements. It teaches proper posture and breathing techniques beneficial to your health. It does not matter your age, sex, size or limitations because anyone can participate. The class is designed to provide a comfortable, relaxing, stress-free environment to aid in a person’s growth physically, mentally and spiritually.
Classes are held Tuesday & Thursday from 11:30am-12:30pm
Little Ninjas & Kids with Kick
programs teach two different styles, Kong Soo Do and Hapkido. Both styles are traditional, non-competitive arts with a focus on self-defense. The self-defense is designed with the children in mind. We also teach the students about proper behavior and morals, both inside and outside of the class. The classes are designed to be fun and upbeat yet they are well structured and organized and the students are taught to be disciplined. This will be reflected in the students behavior both at home and school.
Little Ninja Classes are held: Monday & Thursday: 4:00 pm – 4:30 pm
