Tae Kwon Do

While learning traditional kicks and punches, HMD Academy students also receive individualized instruction in the artistic nature of Tae Kwon Do.


Hapkido uses the the natural motions and rhythms of the body to produce a martial art that focuses on close-quarters and grappling techniques.  It is an extremely successful form of self-defense.


Similar to Tai Chi, Taekgyeon utilizes controlled, graceful movements, low-impact blocks, strikes, and kicks, and traditional forms. Gold Medalist Bokyun Hyong offers classes in this ancient martial art.

Women’s Classes

Free for all female members, this class is for female students to practice and explore what it means to be a martial artist in a predominantly male arena.  Students focus on strength, correct technique, and mental toughness while building a community of friendship and support with other like-minded female martial artists.




Coaching outside the dojang as well as inside, this program offers valuable lessons for life and every type of work. It encompasses four powerful methods of teaching: Wisdom of Tae Kwon Do, Cutting-Edge Neurology, Achievement Motivation, and Neuro-Linguistic Programming.
