sounds like the right balance

Thanks for this information. You are enthusiastic about this and that makes me believe your Master is really special and the classes are friendly enough for a good workout but challenging enough for competition if a person wants to do that. I'm in my late 40s so I just want a good workout and to learn some skills. I'm tired of just doing the gym workouts. Your posts are encouraging and make me want to give it a try.

Hey, TMA really seems like a great place to pratice Taekwondo. The emphasis on the children is what impressed me the most. I think that most people disregard how important martial arts can be on the upbringing of a child and in the child's character development. And I can see by your description that TMA is very good on that matter. Keep it up, I wish all other schools where like that.

Self Defense and Sparring
by: David Fiscus

First, let me commend Deborah for her website. I have watched your videos and they have been a tremendous help to me.

When posting comments about our school, I forgot to mention the emphasis placed on sparring. At the Northwest Crossing branch in Houston, Head Master Choi teaches us using the WTF philosophy.

He taught sparring to university teams in South Korea, and then went on to teach sparring and combat tactics to the South Korean Military. As a 7th Dan in Taekwondo and 5th Dan in Hapkido, he has the training and experience to teach us both.

Master Choi has many different tactics and drills that he has us perform. He changes them often, to keep our interest as we learn new things.

Master Choi also holds a Master's degree in Taekwondo, and coaches license. I find it interesting, how he builds our knowledge. I have been trained by him for a year and a half, and can see now why he had us do some drills that at the time I didn't see the point of. Now I watch, and I say, Ah Ha!I really get it now.

Master Choi has the Taekwondo students learn a lot of Hapkido self defense tactics, which all the students enjoy. My wife also attends our class, and though just a green belt now, she has developed powerful kicks and punches, and with the Hapkido self defense training she has learned wrist locks, arm bars, tossing an opponent, and a variety of other things. It makes me rest easier, knowing that even if I am not with her, she can defend herself.

I hope by sharing this information, I have helped you decide on the things you want when choosing your school.
