Tai-chi

a gentle way to fight stress

If you're looking for a way to reduce stress, consider Tai Chi (TIE-CHEE).  Originally developed for self-defense, Tai Chi has evolved into a graceful form of exercise that's now used for stress reduction and a variety of other health conditions.  Often described as a meditation in motion, Tai Chi promotes serenity through gentle, flowing movements.

Self Defense Class

From bullies to bad guys

Never be unprepared.  Children who attend the class understand how to react when put into a confrontational situation whether it be a bully or an adult.  Young adults are taught how to asses possible situations before they become dangerous.  Parents are encouraged to train with their children so they can have peace of mind when sending them off into the world.

It is designed into three different stages of training

Sin-Sool:  Practicing techniques for use of one's entire body to defend one's self.


Bong-Sool:  Using a short or long wooden stick to defend one's self in an outnumbered situation.


Gum-Sool:  Using either a short or long sword in order to defend one's self in a more aggressive situation.


Jung Do Sool expresses the entire path of a person from their birth to death.  It is a practical martial art that simulated the battle movement between a rooster and a tiger.  Jung Do Sool expresses the training and growth of a warrior based on a doctrine called Sam Hop; a combination of Sky, Mother Earth, and Human.


Jung Do Sool requires mastering free-hand battle while being able to use weapons fully in order to protect one's self, one's family, and one's community.

Jung do Sool

Korean Traditional Martial art

A true Korean martial art that was originally designed to train one's mind, body and soul to defend one's self and to serve the community.  Jung Do Sool was created in ancient Korea.


Jung Do Sool is a series of incorporated movements which requires synergy of mental and physical aspects, commandments of various skills, combination academic and martial art, trust and respect of one's self and of others, and last of all, denial of injustice.
