Our recent trip to Georgia.


Northern Martial Arts Took a very exciting trip to Georgia for Grand Master Allison’s Kodanja. Friday night we trained with Grand Master at his house and then a great dinner. Saturday we spent the entire day training on 5th and 6th Dan Hapkido material. Sunday our group walked down the Tallulah Gorge in Georgia. Sun Moo!

What We Offer

Little Dragons Classes– offered to our students ages 4 to 6.  Little Dragons is specifically designed with younger students in mind.  We teach focus, coordination , working on balance and direction, all while having a great time!  Classes are scheduled in 8 week sessions, with session 1 beginning in September.

Hap Ki Do – one of the oldest martial arts in history.  Dating back over 4000 years, it literally translates to “The Art of Coordinated Power”.  Students in HapKiDo are well rounded in their education, learning, kicks, punches, forms, joint locks, pressure point tactics, self defense, as well as weapons training.  Due to the higher level of difficulty, HapKiDo is limited to students over age 9.
