Taekwondo (/ˈtɛˈkwɒnˈdoʊ/) is a Korean martial art. Taekwondo was developed during the 1940s and 1950s by various Korean martial artists combining and incorporating the elements of Karate and Chinese Martial Arts along with combining the indigenous and traditional-based Korean martial arts styles of Taekkyeon, Subak, and Gwonbeop. 

What our students say:

"TKD under Instructor Hernandez is excellent for the kids.  They learn leadership skills while having lots of fun that keeps them engaged and learning over the long term.  I'm always amazed at the techniques and flexibility they have developed."

"So much to say....Excellent instructors teach REAL martial arts.  Great program for kids and adults alike.  My experience has led to better health, mental and spiritual fitness, and is an incredible stress reliever.  Oriental Sports Academy is literally adding years to my life.  Couldn't recommend them more."

Judo (柔道 jūdō?, meaning "gentle way") is a modern martial art, combat and Olympic sport created in Japan in 1882 by Jigoro Kano (嘉納治五郎). Its most prominent feature is its competitive element, where the objective is to either throw or takedown an opponent to the ground, immobilize or otherwise subdue an opponent with a pin, or force an opponent to submit with a joint lock or a choke. Strikes and thrusts by hands and feet as well as weapons defenses are a part of judo, but only in pre-arranged forms (kata, 形) and are not allowed in judo competition or free practice (randori, 乱取り). A judo practitioner is called a judoka.

What our students say:

"Judo under Master Stout is addictively challenging.  Every class is a mix of physical/mental conditioning, mastering technique, and sparring. Master Stout is an excellent teacher and the class is much more than just judo "lessons".  There is a mix of skill levels and ages in the class that affords us all an opportunity to both learn from and mentor others. Whether this is your once a week intense workout or part of a wider mix of training and sports, judo with Master Stout will improve you mentally and physically, and develop balance, flexibility, and defensive skills."  

 

"Martial arts training has changed my life.  I am healthy happy and suffer less pain everyday.  I love going to class and discovering new and challenging things I thought I would never be able to do.  The instruction has been wonderful a real family atmosphere.  OSA has a lot to offer.  They have classes in taekwondo hapkido and Korean sword which is rare to find.  I like the expectation they have for children, respect for elders and classmates.  This school simply put is not a belt factory but a school that sets expectations high with very knowledge able patient instructors."

Hapkido (also spelled hap ki do or hapki-do; Hangul: 합기도; hanja: 合氣道) is a highly eclectic Korean martial art. It is a form of self-defense that employs similar joint locks, grappling and throwing techniques to other martial arts, as well as kicks, punches, and other striking attacks. There is also the use of traditional weapons, including knife, sword, rope, jool bong (nunchaku), cane, short stick (dan bong), and middle-length staff (joong bong, gun (analogous to the Japanese jō).

What our students say:

"Martial Arts schools have changed a lot since i was young.  I remember having to really work to get to my next ranking.  Unfortunately hard work and high expectations are not the rule but the exception.  I think you will be very happy at this school because the instructors have a deep understanding of the arts.  Fortunately for me they are also very patient.  The classes have been very challenging and I feel healthy again.  I have watched the childrens classes and wow these children are really learning to be respectful.  They do offer several martial art styles so you will have to decide which is the best fit.  I train in taekwondo and enjoy very much.  My kids do taekwondo which is included with their transported after school program which rolls right into summer day camp. very convenient."

"Outstanding martial arts school- excellent instructors and a nice, clean facility.  It's a great place to train the whole family in self-defense and the techniques are as practical as anything I've learned in the Marine Corps or law enforcement.  I love training at OSA!"

Kumdo is a modern Korean martial art derived from Japanese Kendo. Though romanized in a number ways when written Kǒmdo or Geomdo the meaning remains "the way of the sword" and is cognate with the Japanese term. As a martial art, Kumdo has become accepted in Korean culture and society since its introduction from Japan to the degree that the term "Kumdo" has, in recent history, become a generic label for other Korean martial arts based upon swordsmanship. Although related to Japanese Kendo, minor differences exist in Korean Kumdo due to appropriation and acculturation.

What our students say:

"I have attended OSA for about eight years now and I have to say it is hands down the best martial arts school.  They have amazing instructors that never give up on you and are there for you every step of the way, at OSA you are not just a student bringing in money for the school but part of a family.  Before OSA, I was a shy little eight year old and now I am a confident young adolescent ready to take on life."

 

"This place is beyond words.  This is a traditional martial arts program that strives to go the extra mile for you.  The Instructors really want you to be the best physically and mentally.  They continue to serve my needs as well as the needs of others.  Teaching you martial arts is something, however teaching you to be a better person is another.  I love this place and highly encourage everyone to join!

"I along with many others have trained at OSA for 10+ years now and the instruction/level of training are the best around.  It feels less like a business and more like a family with all of the programs they have to offer.  Give it a try, you'll love it!!"
