Hammer Martial Arts (HMA) teaches traditional martial arts in a non-traditional way with emphasis on Taekwondo, Hapkido, breaking, and self defense. This includes multiple mixed martial art styles, sparring and traditional self defense, along with Tournament style fighting. Discipline and physical fitness are key elements in our class. Our classes not only teach how to protect ourselves and those around us, but our classes also teach respect and self control. Many of our students become confident leaders in our society.
Students who sign up with our program can come to as many classes per week as possible. Every eight to twelve weeks, promotion testing is available for students who are ready to move to the next level. Each martial arts style provides insight on various ways to defend oneself, and we encourage you to learn as many as you would like. If you are thinking about taking more than one martial art form within our school, please send an email to Master Rex Hammersly.
Lil' Dragons is designed for children ages 4 to 7. In our Lil' Dragons classes, your child will work on life skills for home and school. The classes help prepare kids for school as well as develop self-confidence, practical self defenses and a "can do" attitude.
Master Keeler instructs the children to defend themselves. The class has also adopted the Winning Edge Child Awareness and Rapid Escape curriculum. It teaches the necessary skills children need to physically, mentally and, most importantly, emotionally defend themselves against child predators. The techniques learned will give your child a fighting chance or those few precious seconds needed to draw attention to their situation before it is too late. Our classes are non stop action; your child will jump, kick and punch their way to greater fitness and they love every second of it.
HMA Taekwondo class includes everyone ages 7 to adult. Along with the traditional self defense, we practice techniques drawn from other arts, such as jiu jitsu, hapkido, kung fu, and judo. In every session, students train their bodies to be more fit and balanced. They practice a wide range of kicks, punches and sparring techniques to improve their skills as a martial artist. HMA attends three regional qualifiers per year and usually has students who qualify for AMAA National tournaments each year. Hammer Martial arts has produced over nine State Champions in the last ten years.
HMA Hapkido runs the gamut from a wide variety of punching and kicking to joint locks and throws with a goal of practical self defense. Class work starts with simple techniques appropriate for a beginning student and work up to more advanced techniques as a student matures in skill. Training time is split between technique drills and applied/self defense practice. This class is for the serious martial artist, who is looking for real life situational defense training, fitness and improving self confidence.
Combat Hapkido is a new, modern style of Hapkido. It differs from traditional Hapkido philosophically as well as technically; Combat Hapkido is 100% SELF DEFENSE. There are no forms, Katas, or Body movement drills. All Combat Hapkido kicks are directed to the lower part of the body. Combat Hapkido does not teach ‘acrobatic kicks, and it teaches break falls and throws in a very limited manner. Combat Hapkido does NOT teach ‘traditional’ weapons like joot-do (bamboo sword) or fan. We teach cane, baton, knife and other self-defense tools. Combat Hapkido teaches special firearms disarming and weapon retention techniques. Combat Hapkido teaches the student to develop a survival mind set, its intense training builds strong muscle memory in various training environments. Combat Hapkido, is flexible and dynamic and continues to evolve. Combat Hapkido is not a sport and cannot be modified nor regulated to be one. There are no competitions, tournaments or champions.
Bokken Sword Fighting
A bokken is a Japanese wooden sword used for training. It is usually the size and shape of a katana, but is sometimes shaped like other swords, such as the wakizashi and tanto. We teach bokken students how to handle the weapon for defense and offense. Special forms are taught to show the various ways of how to use the sword.
