A five-time American Taekwondo Association World Champion, chief master Von Schmeling, began Victory Martial Arts to teach pupils confidence and leadership skills while imparting martial-arts techniques. Classes capped at 30 students, with at most 10 students per instructor, cover disciplines such as general martial arts, krav maga, and self-defense for thwarting assailants and heavily armed spiders. Budding martial artists hone their craft alongside loved ones in family sessions or practice maneuvers in age-specific sequences for kids, teens, or adults.
Master Chon’s passion for martial arts began at age 4. He attended an actual tae kwon do school through high school, and even earned a bachelor’s degree in the martial-art form. Master Chon wears a sixth-degree Korean black belt and spent time as the conditioning coach for the Korean Olympic tae kwon do team. He also earned a master’s degree in special education, and has combined his talents to help special-needs children blossom during structured tae kwon do classes. Other classes are geared toward preschoolers, adults, and women wanting to learn self-defense moves.
