Our Taekwondo program is the best in the area, and very different from the rest. All taught by Master JAO, a world recognized 5th degree black belt under the International Taekwondo Federation, and multi time world champion, with small class sizes and personal attention to each and every student. Traditional Taekwondo is used as a base style, but students also work on boxing, Kickboxing, Muay Thai, grappling, and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, giving them a well rounded self defense base, and preparing them for anything they may encounter in life. Adult students earn rank in both Taekwondo AND Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, again an option ONLY available to JAO Martial Arts. Our students learn the values of martial arts that translate into their academic, and home lives. Each class helps build strength, confidence, respect, and discipline. The junior students are also taught real life self defense, awareness, and bully prevention.
JAO Martial Arts has a junior program unmatched in the area. The junior students focus on the values of honesty, integrity, self-control, and indomitable spirit while learning practical self-defense and getting an incredible workout in a safe, controlled environment. The classes stress the importance of right and wrong, and give even the shyest of children confidence and pride. Master JAO works personally with EVERY junior, making sure that the importance of discipline and technique do not get lost within the intensity of the training.
JAO Martial Arts knows the most influential time in a person’s life is the teenage years. Most of the teenagers in class began years ago as junior students, and have moved up into the more intense training of our teenager’s program. The students begin to focus on perfecting technique, and conditioning the mind and body. Teenage students go through rigorous training sessions every time they come to class. By combining the traditional values and tenants of Martial Arts, with the benefits of modern exercises and techniques these students grow into strong adults, and even stronger leaders.
Our adult program is considered one of the most effective for self defense and conditioning anywhere in the United States. Students are taught not only the basics of traditional TKD, but also the essential concepts of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu gained popularity in the united states after first appearing in the UFC. The self defense applications of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu combined with the traditional aspect of TKD and a rigorous conditioning program make adult classes at JAO Martial Arts the most well rounded Martial Arts programs available. You’ll look and feel better with each class, relieve stress, tension, and become healthier and stronger than you can imagine!!
