Lexington Taekwondo & Jiu Jitsu Academy
Although Lexington is almost 7,000 miles away from the Korean peninsula, you wouldn't know it from the training sessions at Lexington Taekwondo & Jiu Jitsu Academy. Here, adept masters teach their students the ancient art of tae kwon do, the precision kicks and fast strikes of which make it as hard to defend as it is graceful to watch. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes focus on grappling and ground fighting to show students how a smaller person can defeat a larger opponent through leverage and superior technique. Of course, these experts don't limit themselves to two disciplines; other classes introduce kids to karate, or train students in the art of martial weapons including the bo staff and nunchaku.
