The programs here offer our students a chance to learn a complete Martial Art that encompasses all aspects of fighting.

The only school to learn MMA!!! Choe’s HapKiDo MMA has the best program around. The instructors are knowledgeable and very good at what they do. They not only know how to do the techniques well, but they can teach them too! I had spent time training with coaches who had won this tournament, or is ranked as a fighter, but that didn’t mean they could teach the art! Let me save you the trouble….I have tried the rest, but Choe’s HapKiDo is the only place for me. I recommend it to anyone who wants to get in shape and learn.  –  Joe L.
