Martial Arts for Adults and Teens (13+)
It can be easy to assume "Traditional" martial arts such as taekwondo and karate are inferior compared to mixed martial arts programs. The difference is simply in the presentation. Brazillian ju-jitsu, and other similar sports are easy to make look effective because they rely on grappling which allows full contact without putting your training partner in danger.
Kukkiwon-style Taekwondo is based on striking, which is much more difficult to demonstrate at full power without injuring a training partner, but, make no mistake, taekwondo teaches real, applicable self-defense skills. Striking is hands-down superior to grappling in a situation where one is defending against multiple opponents.
We teach techniques that demonstrate both multiple-opponent attacks with striking and one-on-one self-defense that incorporates grappling.
For fitness, taekwondo is fun! Unlike going to the gym or working out on your own, Taekwondo workouts are unique, different, and exciting each time you attend.
In addition, USTA Martial Arts Instructors are there to provide you with the support, encouragement, and motivation to make sure you attain your goals.
The USTA Martial Arts adult students usually find that they better cope with stress, sleep better at night, work better during the day and just overall feel better
They also have greater peace of mind due to the knowledge and expertise on what to do if faced with a dangerous situation.

USTA Instructor & Judge Program
Once a USTA student has reached their black belt and is at least fifteen years old, they are eligible to join the USTA Instructor Program, an advanced set of curriculum that will eventually place them in control of the classes they began learning in.
This program provides access to two monthly expert-level classes which provide advanced training for their own techniques, as well as teaching leadership skills and human education methodology and interactions that will enable them to be successful in whatever career path they choose in life, including the opportunity to become full owners and operators of a USTA School.
