Martial Arts Program

 

Next Generation Martial Arts

Martial arts is more than just kicking and punching, For us at MARS Academy it’s a way of life that we work relentlessly to instill in all of our students. We teach our students what the martials arts is all about and mostly importantly how to can be applied in all walks of life. The benefits of having a strong martial arts background not only gives you the confidence to achieve great success in all endeavors but also teaches you focus, disciple, compassion and self-control. Anyone can learn how to throw a punch but those that can control a punch are far more likely to prevail in most situations. Our programs start at the bottom and we do not skip any steps. We do realize that children get impatience and bored of repetition, so our children’s programs are a culmination of focus, repetition training mixed with many fun drills. Our Adults classes are however much different, these classes are geared towards teens and adults that want to elevate their training to the next level. We offer a mixture of both Taekwondo and Muay Thai for our teens and adults

Kids Taekwondo

Kids Taekwondo

MARS Academy is martial arts after school which instills the old traditional TaeKwonDo with 20th century Olympic style sparring and movements. The Grand Master and staff at MARS Academy are constantly guiding our students in understanding the philosophy of TaeKwonDo. The value and the meaning of Courtesy, Integrity, Perseverance, Self-Control, Respect, Honor and Indomitable Spirit. But these values cannot exist without understanding the fundamental of hard work, pushing our muscles to the limit, and more importantly understanding failure. Failure, is a pathway to success. MARS Academy pushes what Korean TaeKwonDo has worked for 2 millennials; simulation of attack and defense through POOMSE (forms), hard core basic principles and body mechanics, and finally applying these lessons into application of sparring. TaeKwonDo is self-discipline and self-control. The Grand Master and instructors teach the body mechanics by showing how to utilize feet, leg, arm, hand, body and mind through constant repetitive techniques (building Muscle-Memory). Through traditions of the past and incorporating modern mechanics, difficult combination kicking, punching and blocking method becomes reactive motions. MARS Academy has helped many and they shall help you and/or your child develop essential methods to protect one self and give the self-assurance to succeed in all aspects of life.

Muay Thai

Muay Thai

Muay Thai martial arts is 300 years in the making. Muay Thai, literal English translation “Thai Boxing.” But the people of Siam, wanted to make it their own style of Martial Art, and hence Muay Chiaya was formed at its earliest inception prior to what it is known today. “The art of 8-limbs”, the art of utilizing hands, elbows, knees and shins. The combination of these Siam style of martial arts, have emerged into a formidable combative style of martial arts, Muay Thai. Its aggressive, powerful, but yet graceful and fluid. Coveted, if not very similar to the old style of Korean MooDukKwan TaeKwonDo and Japanese Okinawan style Karate. Both style of martial arts covers, grappling, body throws, leg sweeps and close quarter combat emanating into power stance, power block, power kick and punch. These styles are not blocking to defend, but to striking to blocks which culminate into an attack. Muay Chiaya has evolved to the main stream of Muay Thai, aggressive strikes for close quarter attacks for an awesome defensive striking system.
