First-year fighters begin by strengthening their minds and bodies in tae kwon do, a physical art that nurtures respect and discipline. Upon advancement, participants move on to pradal serey, a form of Cambodian kickboxing. As students watch their belt magically transform from white to yellow, like an egg run over by a school bus, sparring practices extend self-defense skills and give them the opportunity to don fashionable padding provided by the studio (only sparring requires padding). Upon achieving the highly regarded black belt, self-defenders can sweep through the moves of hapkido and grappling.
