TAE KWON DO
Our Evening Program of classes operates year round. Students can enroll anytime into our three systems of martial arts - Tae Kwon Do, Hapkido, or Tai Chi. We begin all new students with a one month enrollment so they can get on the mat and see how they enjoy the training. Each system is unique and we encourage anyone interested in training to call or visit our school to speak with the professional staff about the training that occurs in each system and what might be best suited for you.
White Tiger focuses on teaching all students, no matter what martial art they train in, a vast arsenal of strikes, kicks, blocks, joint manipulations and other effective methods of protecting themselves.
Most importantly - we help all students build fitness and confidence in themselves - helping them become stronger and better prepared for all of life's unexpected hurdles.
ALL EVENING CLASSES HELD BETWEEN 6-9 P.M. AND
SATURDAY MORNINGS 9 A.M. TO 12:45 P.M.
See Class Schedule for Specifics.

White Tiger teaches traditional (ITF) Tae Kwon Do, and also integrates the use of traditional weapons such as nunchukas, sais, kali sticks, kamas, bo staff and bokken into the students' training. Master Jimmy is also an expert in gun and knife defenses, and once a black belt at our school students will begin training in those defenses as well.

Hapkido is close quarters combative system that is a defend and restrain system...it utilizes your opponent or attacker's force against you to your advantage.
Hapkido uses grappling, joint manipulations, pressures points, throws and locks to defend and restrain attackers. While learning Hapkido you will also learn a multitude of strikes and blocks and kicks that can be utilized to strike and keep attackers away from you - but once they grab ahold of you, that's when the hand techniques come in!
