Martial Arts Classes
Fusion Gymnastics Center is proud to announce the addition of our martial arts program!
Fusion Martial Arts (formerly America’s Best Karate East Coast) now offers students from Age 5 & Up the opportunity to learn the arts of Hapkido, Taekwando and Kumdo. Start your journey with our White Belt Level with an introduction to martial arts and train your way through the beginner, intermediate and advanced levels to reach Black Belt.
Hapkido is a form of self-defense. You will learn joint manipulation, grappling and throwing as well as kicks, punches and striking attacks. Hapkido uses jumping kicks and hand strikes for fighting at a distance with pressure point strikes, joint locks and throws at close range. Traditional weapons are used in the upper levels of this form such as nunchaku, sai, bo staff and sword. Students of this form gain advantage through footwork and body positioning instead of strength against strength.
Taekwondo is a Korean martial art with heavy emphasis on kicks and has been an Olympic event since 1992. This style is characterized by its emphasis on head-height kicks, jumping and spinning kicks as well as fast kicking techniques. Students are taught step sparring techniques beginning at yellow belt level. The fundamental techniques taught are kicks, blocks, punches and strikes along with throwing and falling techniques. Taekwondo offers a focus on mental and ethical discipline, etiquette, justice, respect and self-confidence. Students also practice the always fun board breaking techniques.
We offer training in Kumdo, the “way of the sword”, which is based on real sword fighting. Basic training in Kumdo includes striking, blocking and counter striking applying a great velocity and force to a certain point of attack with correct timing.
