Our Programs & Classes:

Students and enthusiasts of martial arts have many reasons for their interest in the martial arts. Some are drawn to the physical fitness and weight-loss aspects of training. Others seek to add discipline and self control to their lives. While still others are concerned about safety and self-defense.

Whether you are interested in our programs for mental or physical well being, MUDO USA offers a number of programs that will fit your developmental needs and your busy schedule as well.


Martial arts is a total learning activity. Lessons are tailored to your child's age and skill level. Your child begins by practicing

basic patterns and forms, board breaking, kicking, blocking, striking, and punching. These fundamental skills increase your child's physical coordination, flexibility, balance, and mental acumen.
Martial arts develop your child’s athletic abilities and self-awareness, and improve the child's capabilities in self-defense.
Martial arts emphasizes moral development as well. Children learn respect for themselves and others, heightened concentration, and increased self-discipline and self-restraint. The self-discipline that develops as a result of learning and practicing the techniques usually carries over into other areas of the child's life. School grades often improve as your child learns to focus on objectives and to work toward achievement. The self-discipline and self-respect which martial arts develop can provide your child with the skills and mindset necessary to resist peer pressure. Let your child experience the benefits of MUDO USA.

MUDO USA's adult programs help you develop and maintain a sound body and mind, and increase your abilities at self-defense.
Martial arts strengthens your body and improves your health through physical exercise and conditioning. Isometric and dynamic tension exercises will allow you to gain better muscle tone and more strength. A gradual building process of safe and easy stretching techniques will enhance flexibility, while breathing and concentration exercises lead to sharper reflexes and senses. The discipline of martial arts leads to increased energy, better health and fitness, greater coordination, and higher self-esteem. These qualities are vital to a happier, longer life.

The MUDO USA program helps you recognize and handle situations in which self-defense may be required. Using our completely integrated system, you can learn the techniques you need to defend yourself intelligently in threatening situations. What you learn could prevent you from becoming a victom.

Little Taekwon (ages 4-5)

The Little Taekwon Program is specifically designed for those aged 4-5, and for a good reason. At that age, a child may or may not be able to maintain the focus necessary to keep up with the content of the Children Program classes. After an evaluation form one of our instructors, we may recommend that a child might benefit from the smaller class size and specific instruction that the Little Taekwon Program offers.
Little Taekwon students benefit from a curriculum designed to improve memory, balance and coordination. These children begin to learn discipline, focus, and respect while having fun and burning off some of their stocks of extra energy. The instruction may take the form of games, and the games will challenge them both mentally and physically, and all the while our Little Taekwon students are learning basic Tae Kwon Do techniques.
