Traditional Teen Martial Arts
Oom Yung Doe is true Traditional Martial Art, offering training as it has been taught in Asia for centuries. The goal is not just to improve your condition or self-defense, but to truly "win over yourself" and reach your fullest potential mentally, physically, and spiritually. Group lessons for students between 10 and 16 years of age are focused on developing not just physical strength, flexibility, and coordination, but also mental discipline, determination, and focus. Skills that will help them avoid peer pressure and other negative social situations. In many cases it has also helped them improve academically and provide a foundation for the rest of their lives.
Movement comes primarily from the Udo (Jujitsu), Kong Su (a hard style like Tae Kwon Do or Karate), and Kung Fu, but students will learn all eight styles as they work toward earning their black belt.

Benjamin R. demonstrates the development he gained practicing Angry Dragon 2, a Kung Fu style Dan Hyung (beginning level short form) form. Before training with the Master Level Team (MLT) Benjamin was easily distracted during lessons and needed a lot of external help staying on task. After his training, he's able to keep himself on track for the entire lesson as well as developing the strength and intensity with his movement that earned him a Silver Certificate in his first Local Level Tournament.
He has since gone on to earn multiple State Level Silver medals and became the first student under the age of 18 to earn a Regional Level Bronze medal. He is now an Assistant Instructor and helps teach some of the youngest students in the school as he works toward earning his 3rd Degree Black Belt.
Before Oom Yung Doe, I never did any sports or activities. In health and fitness, or P.E. (Physical Education), I wasn’t average, but below that. I had no stamina, could do barely 3 push-ups and a weak mental strength. I was always afraid that I would hurt myself and never went for the basketball or soccer ball. In other words, I had no confidence that I could score a goal or even get the ball. After a couple months of OYD, I could see the difference. Plus, I was catching up to my friends. Now I trust myself more and put myself in the game which is much more fun than avoiding the ball. I am extremely glad that I joined OYD because now, I am not challenging myself to reach my limit, but to exceed it!

I’ve been training for about 2 ½ years now and since then my life has definitely changed for the better. Although school has been stressful with homework and finals, it has become more manageable. With training, I’ve gained more focus, discipline, strength, flexibility, determination and so much more. My mental and physical well-being has greatly improved. Oom Yung Doe has bettered my views on life and values. I am glad I’ve had the opportunity to train and train with people who I am happy to call my friends.
