Learn Taekwondo: Traditional Korean Martial Art

The word Taekwondo is formed from three Korean terms “tae” meaning “to kick” as with a foot, “kwon” which derives from “the hand” used to strike or block, and “do” meaning “the way” or “the art.” Taekwondo, therefore, can roughly be translated as “the art of fighting with the fist and the foot.” At OMAC, we delve into the original principles of Taekwondo. Students develop their understanding of the ideals of Taekwondo as well as physical skills.

The Timeless Art of Gumdo

Gumdo is the art of the Korean sword. Students experience a challenging yet safe environment where they learn how to spar as well as proper handling of a sword. Gumdo is a good fit for many people, even those with little or no prior martial art experience.

Gumdo students begin with the traditional bamboo (Jook Gum) training sword. From there they progress to wooden (Mook Gum), and finally steel swords (Shin Gum). For sparring, padded weapons are used. These allow sparring partners to make contact without inviting injury. Sparring with full armor and a bamboo weapon is an option reserved solely for highly advanced students.

Hapkido: Practical Self-Defense

Hapkido means the art of harmonizing energy. Chayil hapkido is the ultimate form of self-defense. Students will leave the first class with real self-defense skills, and we build on that. Students will learn to kick, strike, and throw an attacker. Mentally, we are practicing discipline, respect, self-control, confidence, and indomitable spirit to become the best version of themselves physically and mentally. 

Hapkido students will learn the principles of movement to divert attacker’s energy and use the attacker’s strength to block, strike and lock joints. The hapkido student uses the attacker’s strength and power to divert their attack and defeat them. Using unbalancing pressure points, relatively little strength is needed for a Hapkido student to defend against a much larger and stronger opponent.

No matter your age, size, or ability, come try class and see for yourself what Hapkido can do for you. You will not be disappointed.

Kimoodo: The Healing Art

The literal translation of “Kimoodo” is “The way of ‘Life Energy’ merged in the discipline of martial arts.” Kimoodo has its roots in ancient Asian Martial Arts integrated with historic Oriental Healing Arts. Aspects of these arts have been used in Asia for more than 5,000 years to maintain a healthy mind and body and to treat injury or illness.

Kimoodo’s methods are holistic and harness the student’s “Life Energies” of mind, body, spirit, and emotion. Using these combined energies, students improve their overall physical condition, helping them fight injury and illnesses. The great thing about Kimoodo is that it is for anyone—regardless of age, size, or shape. The classes are welcoming to all.
