When you have passion for what you do, success has a tendency to come along for the ride. At Fusion Martial Arts we have a passion not only for Martial Arts but also for nurturing a family-friendly environment our students and instructors can use to achieve their goals. But don't take our word for it, come along to a class and see for yourself!
Whether your goal is to have confidence in protecting yourself and your loved ones, getting in a good workout with practical applications or to simply enjoy spending time with other active individuals, the instructors at Fusion Martial Arts are here to inspire you to work hard and to help you achieve your goals.
Fusion Martial Arts enables our students to practice self-discipline, mental flexibility and to develop a strong sense of justice, fortitude, compassion, humility and resolve. This is what separates the true student from one who has mastered only the physical aspects of the art. Our students, who come from all walks of life, work together, enjoy their training, encourage their fellow students and practice humility. We actively encourage siblings and even families to train together.
Taekwon-do And What We Fuse Into It
Taekwon-do is a martial art that was designed and tested in some of the harshest conditions the 20th century could produce. First taught to the Korean Army, it was forged in battle where the cost of a getting it right was a matter of life and death. Originally drawing influence from karate as well as from Korea's traditional martial arts, Taekwon-do has evolved into a modern martial art that includes dynamic self-defensive techniques, punches, kicks, blocks, dodges and interceptions.
Fusion Martial Arts relays on the Chang Hon Pattern System for the basis of our training, gradings and syllabus. Developed by the legendary General Choi Hong Hi (the father and founder of Taekwon-do) the Chang Hon pattern system is taught by ITF Taekwon-do and many other Taekwon-do schools around the World.
Fusion Martial Arts brings together ideas and information from other sources including modern sports science, Bujinkan Budō Taijutsu (associated with Ninjitzu), Wing-Chun (Kung-Fu), and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ). This is to enhance our Taekwon-do skills and ensures we have self-defense techniques for all students, no matter what abilities or physical limitations they might have.

The Japanese Martial Arts concept of Uke and Tori is a much more formalized concept than the attacker/defender relationship and is a tool I have successfully integrated into my Taekwon-do classes to aid in drill-work focus and participation. The attacker/defender relationship is often thought of as “my turn”/”your turn” where as an Uke and Tori […] Continue Reading »
