Hapkido is an ancient Korean Martial Art that emphasizes the development of each person’s internal energy, or “ki”. Practice of the art strengthens both the mind and the body, leading to improvement in one’s physical development and mental attitude.

For Self Defense Hapkido is unsurpassed! It combines the many punching and hand striking skills of boxing, Kung Fu, and Karate, the takedowns and throws of Judo/JuJuitsu, the fancy kicking techniques of TaeKwon Do, and many unique joint locking & pressure point skills to make it the most effective and complete form of Self Defense ever devised.

Philosophically, Hapkido stresses humility, self discipline, self-control, loyalty, and respect for others. Together, these aspects of Hapkido provide the means for attaining along and healthful life.

Adult Tai Chi

$48 Discounted for residents
$58 Regular fee for non-residents

Adults only, 18 and up

In our Tai Chi class you will learn an ancient self improvement method that is totally different from other sports or exercise classes. Tai Chi is a very popular Oriental Holistic fitness program that has the added dimension of healing the mind and body from within.

The class focuses on proper breathing, increasing circulation, and developing internal energy (Ki Power) for improved overall health. You will learn graceful basic actions, which are actually “Low Impact” exercises in disguise! Unlike other programs, the class is so fascinating that you will never be bored!

When you are able to perform all of the basic actions as one continuous flowing motion, that is considered a Tai Chi FORM. The goal is to be able to move smoothly through the FORM without the intervention of conscious thought. This is very relaxing for both the mind and body; and it is very beneficial in relieving mental and physical stress.

Students typically experience increased flexibility, less body and joint stiffness, increased range of motion, and less pain. Body balance, coordination, and a more positive outlook on life are also reported by students as a result of Tai Chi practice.

When you leave class you will feel rejuvenated, energized, and ready to tackle life with a GREAT NEW ATTITUDE. Adult Only!
