About Our School

The 5 Life-Changing Gifts of
Martial Arts. For Kids AND Adults.

Welcome!

Bet you thought our Penndel Martial Arts school was just a super cool place to get fit and learn self-defense... the truth is it's so much more.

As you get physically fit, you’ll also experience some changes most of our students are NOT prepared for. Especially our younger students. They are absolutely blown away by the subtle changes that happen when you train in our programs.

Below are a handful of those life-changing experiences people walk away with. We can’t wait to hear what kind of positive experiences you can add to the list as well!

#1 Tons of Confidence

Martial arts is tough. Whether it’s strictly to get fitter or you’re in it to win it and become one of the world’s leaders in martial arts, trying something new is challenging both physically and mentally.

But...as you push yourself and listen to your instructors as they cheer you on you will get a HUGE surge of confidence! You’ll also get in amazing shape which brings better body confidence right along with it.

You’ll be able to pat yourself on the back with pride as you achieve things you once thought impossible. Even if that means completing one single push up, perfecting a difficult new technique, or even watching your kids progress through their training.

#2 Improved Focus

Martial arts is challenging and requires your full attention. As you concentrate hard on listening to the instructor, then performing what they taught you, you start to build crucial links in your brain which boost your ability to focus.

What’s great is that this intense concentration naturally pours into all other areas of your life.

Adults report being able to not only concentrate better at work, but they’re able to clear their mind at the end of the day better as well. Kids benefit too as they pay more attention at school and at home.

#3 Let’s Get Physical

Our classes are a blast and based on functional fitness. We use positive reinforcement and high fives instead of military style yelling and endless hours on a treadmill.

This means that each of our classes is loaded with challenging, fun exercises designed to enhance your self-defense skills. Dynamic striking, high intensity intervals of cardio training, and movements that mimic how the human body should move are our focus.

Don’t worry if you feel as though you won’t be able to keep up. We work with all levels from total beginner to pro athlete. And you know what...they all sweat the same at the end of our workouts!

#4 Community & Family Ties

Martial artists are some of the most down-to-earth people you’ll ever meet. Highly skilled and dedicated to the lifestyle, we're definitely a tight-knit group here.

Students, their families, and our instructors are all about support and friendship. You’ll make tons of new friends for life, cheer each other on during tough times, and celebrate during victories.

Friendship, motivation, and dedication - that’s the foundation of the martial arts way of life. It's truly great to experience.

#5 You’ll Do FUN Stuff!

No two workouts are ever the same. We use functional fitness focused on getting your body in tip top shape. After all, if you can’t move your body in the real world or have enough endurance to get out of a bad situation then we’re not doing our job right.

You’ll learn how to move your body in fun new ways that will wreck your core, tone your arms and legs, and ensure that you stay as injury free as possible. Of course we do this with positive motivation. No military style yelling or body shaming, ever.

Kids and adults both work hard, but play harder.. Laughing, smiles, and high fives are part of every class.

Strikes like kicks and punches are great when standing face-to-face against an opponent. Joint locks will suppress anyone too close to hit. And using your opponent's own force against them will leave anyone off balance and stunned.

With Hapkido, you'll become a master at all of these skills. That's because it's one of the most well-rounded martial arts on the planet. And as your skills grow, your body will become stronger, leaner, and more coordinated and balanced. Click for details.

Louis's favorite thing about being an instructor is witnessing students overcome challenges and achieving personal understanding through their martial arts training. One of his greatest accomplishments was winning 2013 Regional Grand Champion in Tang Soo Do.
