Taekwondo is a Korean form of martial arts characterized by punching and kicking techniques, with emphasis on high kicks, spinning jump kicks, and fast kicking techniques. The literal translation for Taekwondo is "The way of Hand and Foot” It is a kind of martial arts in which one attacks or defends with hands and feet anytime or anywhere, with occasional use of weapons. The physical training undertaken in Taekwondo is purposeful and fosters strength of mind through mental armament.
It is a combat sport and was developed during the 1940s and 1950s by Korean martial artists with experience in Japanese martial arts such as karate, Chinese martial arts, and indigenous Korean martial arts traditions. The oldest governing body for Taekwondo is the Korea Taekwondo Association, formed in 1959 through a collaborative effort by representatives from the nine original Kwans, or martial arts schools, in Korea. The main international organizational bodies for Taekwondo today are the International Taekwon-Do Federation (ITF), founded by Choi Hong-hi in 1966, and the partnership of the Kukkiwon and World Taekwondo (WT, formerly World Taekwondo Federation), founded in 1972 and 1973 respectively by the Korea Taekwondo Association.
Alpha Omega Martial Arts is a member of the Koryu Kwan founded by Master Daniel McCarthy which focuses on older Taekwondo Traditions combined with modern physical training methods.
Combat Hapkido (known in Korean as Chon-Tu Kwan Hapkido) is an eclectic modern Hapkido system founded by John Pellegrini in 1990. The founder of Combat Hapkido was very clear in his statement that he did not invent a new martial art. He stated "I have merely structured a new Self-Defense system based upon sound scientific principles and modern concepts. For this reason Combat Hapkido is also referred to as the "Science of Self-Defense." Combat Hapkido is a new interpretation and application of a selected body of Hapkido techniques. The word "Combat" was added to Combat Hapkido to distinguish this system from Traditional Hapkido styles and to identify its focus as Self-Defense.
The style employs joint locks, pressure points, throws, hand strikes, and low-lying kicks, and trains practitioners to either counter or preemptively strike an imminent attack to defend one's self. In common with many Hapkido styles, it also emphasizes small circular motion, non-resisting movements, and control of an opponent through force redirection and varied movement and practitioners seek to gain advantage through footwork, distractive striking and body positioning to employ leverage.
Traditionally martial arts weapons were taught hand in hand with empty hand techniques. After World War II many martial arts had to separate the martial weapons practice from the empty hand practice so that the occupational forces would allow their practice on the islands. At Alpha Omega Martial Arts we bring to the students an opportunity for the study of the variety of martial arts weapons practiced by many systems. We teach the Bo, Sai, Tonfa, , Nunchaku, and Kama, Kuwa(hoe), Eku(oar), and Nunti(gaff), single and double batons, knife, and sword. We also teach the practical aspects of weapon retention and disarming in regards to firearms as well.
Tai chi is an ancient tradition that, today, is practiced as a graceful form of exercise. It involves a series of movements performed in a slow, focused manner and accompanied by deep breathing.
Tai chi, also called tai chi chuan, is a noncompetitive, self-paced system of gentle physical exercise and stretching. Each posture flows into the next without pause, ensuring that your body is in constant motion.
Tai chi has many different styles. Each style may subtly emphasize various tai chi principles and methods. There are variations within each style. Some styles may focus on health maintenance, while others focus on the martial arts aspect of tai chi.
Tai chi is different from yoga, another type of meditative movement. Yoga includes various physical postures and breathing techniques, along with meditation.
