Additional Information: While not officially an MMA school, nevertheless we are still quite eclectic. Our GM's motto is: "If it works on me today, it'll be Tae Kwon Do tomorrow."

As he himself is quick to point out, the point-scoring system employed by judges in Olympic competition favor techniques which often show less-than-ideal practicality in the real world. Such rules being arbitrary, we ignore them.

But favoring a more utilitarian approach does not require at all that we abandon our roots. So while also revering the more classical origins of our art we simply remain aware that any art that has ceased to evolve day-by-day is at a dead end and only a continual search for still better methods lends it both dynamism and vitality. We feel that practicing one's art as a quest only serves to make it just that much more enjoyable.
