Traditional Taekwondo

Taekwondo is a traditional Martial Art of Korea.

Taekwondo is unlike many sports activities in that instruction in moral and ethical behavior is
an integral part of Taekwondo training.

At the same time students acquire viable self-defense skills they are taught the importance of
Courtesy, Integrity, Perseverance, Self-Control and Indomitable Spirit and encouraged to
apply these principles in their everyday lives. As students progress in their training they are
taught the importance of things like family, community, brotherhood, friendship, loyalty, respect,
courage, and compassion. The Moral Code of Taekwondo summarizes these teachings.

The physical benefits of practicing Taekwondo include improved physical fitness, increased
coordination, timing and mental focus. In time students develop full unity of mind and body and
complete mastery of self.

The benefit most commonly reported by parents of students who persist in Taekwondo is a
marked improvement in their performance in class and in their interpersonal relations with

Taekwondo training builds character.

Hapkido is a complete Martial Art

Hapkido is considered by many authorities to be the most effective system for
self-defense and personal protection available to the general public.

Grandmaster Tapia has taught federal and local law enforcement officers Hapkido
techniques for effective disarming, submission, and control. If you are serious about
acquiring the knowledge and skills to confidently dominate and master any
confrontation this is the program for you.
