USA Martial Arts curriculum is built on a foundation of traditional martial arts. One such art is Moo Duk Kwan Tang Soo Do, a classical system with roots in Korea. It is also referred to by its ancient name of Soo Bahk Ki or Soo Bahk Do. Made popular by such notable practitioners as action movie star Chuck Norris, and Hollywood choreographer of such films as the Karate Kid, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Pat Johnson, Tang Soo Do practitioners have risen to the highest levels in martial arts and life.
"I credit much of who I am today to the traditional values I learned when I began martial arts training with my first teachers, Masters of Moo Duk Kwan, Kung Fu and Shotokan. That is why we still preserve the pure original teachings of that system at USA Martial Arts. We honor the past but also embrace the future to give our students the best foundation, education and experience possible." - John Nottingham, Chief Master Instructor USA Martial Arts

Our students learn languages like Korean, Chinese, Japanese as well as culture, history and traditions that expand our student's world view. We travel to Asia to train, tour and learn as well as bring in world -renowned teachers and performers. We've trained at the Shaolin Temple in China, Olympic Taekwondo in Korea and with UFC Champions. We work hard to see that our students have unparalleled opportunities and experiences."
USA Martial Arts traditional training brings together elements from several disciplines including meditation, stretching, self-defense, core exercise, and strength training. In training, the mind, body, and spirit are inseparable; they harmonize with each other to create a perfect workout to reduce stress, improve posture, breathing, agility, and cardiovascular condition.
