Between 20 and 50 people gather for each class to learn both the mental and physical aspects of tae kwon do from certified masters and instructors. Students practice comprehensive striking techniques with both fists and feet, as well as throws and joint locks useful for overwhelming a larger opponent. Bodies hop, leap, and roll across mats in jumping and dodging exercises, and wood and metal flash in the air as advanced students practice weapon techniques that are useful in case cities replace their small-claims courts with gladiatorial arenas.<p>
Ultimate Champions Taekwondo Association
The more than a dozen brick-and-mortar locations that make up Ultimate Champions Taekwondo Association share not only a style of combat, but a teaching philosophy as well. Tracing the lineage of their combative art back to Grandmaster Sang K. Oh, the instructors adhere to his teachings, exemplified by the quote, "The person who can defeat others with flashy techniques but is without love toward his fellow man will in the end defeat himself." Students use the physical empowerment of mastering jumps, kicks, and weapons to arm themselves with discipline, confidence, concentration, self-respect, and courtesy for others.
Outside of the classroom, the organization reaches out to the tri-state community with ample demonstrations of some of their most exciting techniques. Practitioners soar skyward in flying kicks or fill the air with the whirring blows of nunchakus, bos, and kamas. Fists slam through boards, balloons, and bricks to demonstrate the striking power of tae kwon do and the structural flaws in the Three Little Pigs' panic room.
