About Martial Arts Camp

The goals of Martial Arts Camp are to improve quality instruction, techniques, and knowledge of martial arts; encourage youth to enrich their lives through fitness of mind and body by training in the martial arts; and promote the development of positive personal character. Students will be immersed in the different martial art experiences of Judo, Taekwondo, and Yongmudo.

Martial Arts campers will have JudoTaekwondo, or Yongmudo training each day. Taekwondo sparring will be available, but only for advanced Taekwondo students Campers will also have after-program activities, such as: drawing, crafts, reading, hula hoop, jump rope, homework, watching Martial Arts videos. There will also be activities held outside: freeze tag, basketball, frisbee golf, soccer, and more

Campers must be ages 6-16 (by December 1, 2020) in order to register for this camp. All levels are welcome! All martial arts classes require a uniform. Uniforms are $30 and can be purchased the first day of camp.

 

Martial Arts Disciplines

Taekwondo

Taekwondo, “the way of foot and fist,” is based on ancient Korean methods of self-defense. It emphasizes flexibility and kicking techniques, but hand techniques are also widely employed. A means of self-defense, physical conditioning, recreation, and mental discipline, Taekwondo is recognized not only as a superior martial art, but also as an exciting sport with powerful kicks and punches that emphasizes continuous action, endurance, skill, and sportsmanship. Taekwondo has been a medal event since the 2000 Olympics.

Judo

Judo, “the way of gentleness,” is a modern sport based on Jujitsu, the ancient Japanese art of self-defense. Judo consists of standing throws and complex grappling techniques, used both offensively and defensively, as well as falling techniques for safety. It is a vigorous competitive sport that requires both physical and mental endurance. Judo is practiced by people of all ages and has been in the Olympic games since 1964.

Yongmudo

Yongmudo techniques are modern, open, and dynamic, combining the martial arts of Taekwondo, Judo, Tsirum, Kumdo, and others to develop a futuristic way of self-defense through physical, psychological, spiritual, and mental training with up-to-date scientific knowledge.
