T-USA Endorses an exceptional program:























Tae Kwon Do

Taekwondo is the Korean art of punching and kicking defense. It is a unique martial art incorporating both the quick, straight-line movements and the flowing circular movements of well known Chinese martial arts. However, Taekwondo is especially known for its varied and uniquely powerful kicking techniques. Taekwondo embraces self-esteem, builds confidence and develops discipline in its students as it teaches self-defense. Today an Olympic medal sport, Taekwondo enjoys increasing popularity with children and adults alike.

Hap Ki Do

Hapkido is the Korean art of coordinated power. Hap is coordination; Ki denotes the essence of power; and Do means art or method. Unlike Taekwondo, Hapkido deals with close contact self-defense using wrist-twisting, joint-locks, strikes, throws, breaks, kicks, punches, grapples, rolls, and falling techniques. The Hapkido practitioner uses circular patterns to gain momentum for executing the techniques in a natural and free-flowing manner.
