Welcome to Korean Martial Arts!
Ages 4 to Adult - Martial Arts for the Whole Family
Korean Martial Arts is a martial arts school (dojang) in Maryland that teaches three traditional Korean styles - Taekwondo, Hapkido, and Kumdo. We offer small hands-on classes with skilled instructors who provide a challenging but supportive environment suitable for all ages. Our school is a member of World Taekwondo, the Korean Hapkido Federation, and the Korean Kumdo Federation.
Taekwondo focuses on sparring with kicking and punching, and is the official sport of Korea and an Olympic event. It uses forms, sparring, and board breaking techniques to help improve balance, physical strength, and endurance.
Hapkido is a grappling art that also uses kicking and punching along with elbows and knee strikes. While it shares some aspects of Taekwondo, Hapkido strictly focuses on self-defense.
Kumdo is a sword art related to Japanese Kendo. It uses forms and sparring to teach balance, timing, and to improve awareness.
All of these art forms are taught in a way that encourages respect for others as well as self-respect, determination, austerity, and a sense of interconnectivity with others.
