Family Martial Arts Studio
The Family Martial Arts Studio offers classes in the traditional Korean art of Tae Kwon Do. Our classes are focused on the important values that martial arts training will develop including confidence, self control, self discipline, courtesy, and respect. Our school provides a safe and fun environment for students to learn self defense, goal setting, and the importance of health and exercise. Our teaching style is designed to engage students in physical techniques and exercises that will build strength, flexibility, and coordination. Students will also benefit from the development of focus, concentration, and confidence that are the skills of a trained Martial Artist.
How is our school different from other martial art classes and activities you have to choose from?
At the Family Martial Arts Studio, we also offer a very practical and realistic martial art called Combat Hapkido, or Chon Tu Kwon Hapkido. This is a very scientific martial art style that incorporates joint locking, breakaway techniques, pressure point targeting, and defense against grappling techniques. No matter what your size or strength, you can develop the skills to be able to defend yourself and your family. Classes are designed to help you build coordination and a working knowledge of the body to react in various self defense situations. Students of all levels of experience are encouraged to train and practice techniques that will enhance their abilities to break away from, control, or disengage from an unwanted attack. Our instructors have trained with the founder of this system, Grandmaster John Pellegrini, and with many talented Martial Artists as members of the International Combat Hapkido Federation. The Family Martial Arts Studio is a charter school of the ICHF, and our instructors are fully trained and licensed.
This is a unique martial arts class for adults and teens only. Students can expect to learn proper form and technique for striking and kicking through practice in the air and on targets. You will also be working with partners in class to learn how to apply techniques and make them effective. Proper respect and safety measures while working with partners is expected and always applied in our classes. There is also a traditional belt ranking system in place so that students may gauge their personal progress and learn techniques in a structured way. All Combat Hapkido students will receive rank in our classes under the ICHF and will also have the opportunity to train with Grandmaster Pellegini and several ICHF instructors at many of the seminars that are available throughout the year.
In addition to our regular program including martial arts classes for adult and children, the instructors at the Family Martial Arts Studio are available to teach private classes or seminars for larger groups. We have had great responses from professionals, executives, and children's organizations who have attended our self defense seminars. We would be happy to arrange an event, or schedule a private class if you or your group are interested in self protection. Please give us a call at 845-227-3308 or email MasterTripi@FamilyMAS.com.
