Youn Wha Ryu Martial Arts is a traditional and complex self-defense system that goes beyond "kicking and punching." Students learn practical self-defense concepts that focus on increasing reaction, timing, speed and full-body power. The comprehensive curriculum includes the most effective and efficient techniques from Kung Fu, Karate, Tae Kwon Do, Hwarang Do, Jiu-Jitsu, Aikido, Judo, Hapkido, Kendo, and others. The dynamic classes combine both aerobic and anaerobic training and encourage the development of self-discipline, perseverance, balance, agility, coordination, flexibility and total-body strength. Training can be modified as needed for students to be able to participate regardless of age and ability level. The traditional family-oriented martial arts classes are approximately one-hour in length and follow a structured format. Each class focuses on the six training principles:
Be Polite Be Patient Be Alert Be Brave Do Your Best Respect Yourself and Others
Rank promotion is an option for students who train consistently, learn all the required rank level curriculum, and receive instructor's recommendations. Promotional testings are judged by World Wha Ryu Taekwondo Association Master level instructors.
