Why Mach Martial Arts?
What sets us apart?
Our dreams and hopes are simple.
We want to change the world, one martial artist at a time.
For our students to truly come to love themselves so they'll be compelled towards excellence.
The PURPOSE of our program is to establish SELF-RESPECT, SELF-LOVE, SELF-ESTEEM, SELF-BELIEF, and SELF-CONFIDENCE.
We do this by first helping students link pleasure with attending our classes. Then, we help students establish these fundamental aspects with basic everyday functions (kicks, poomsae, performing in front of others) and healthy habits (helping others, sharing) to help them understand how to reach their goals "to work smarter, not harder" by automating tasks and responsibilities as much as possible.
We do this by deliberately enforcing repetition. The 10,000-hour rule: "the key to achieving true expertise in any skill is simply a matter of practicing for at least 10,000 hours" (so it becomes automatic).
Additionally, the quintessential part of our program is showing students HOW to create a vision (being healthy in mind, body, soul, and spirit), set a long-term goal (becoming a black belt), and take small (automated) steps with short-term goals towards that long-term goal (progressing through each belt) to ultimately reach their vision.
In this process, we further develop other aspects of self improvement within our purpose so that students may use this experience and knowledge in their personal and professional life to "adult" into well-rounded, contributing LEADERS (not just members) within our community/society.

Mach Martial Arts Programs
Our purpose is NOT to reach perfection, but to reach WHOLENESS.
A type of excellence that can only be attained by being true to yourself.
Little Tiger Program (Ages 4-7)
We use basic Martial Arts training to build foundation in Taekwondo, while working on memory building, gross motor skills, cognitive developmental skills, social skills (like leadership and peer modeling), and emotional skills.
Taekwondo Program (Ages 8 & Up)
We use intermediate Martial Arts training to build resilience; competence, confidence, connection, character, contribution, coping, and control. These essential building blocks are the foundation to grow self-identity, self-esteem, and self-confidence. It allows us to value and better understand ourselves and others.
Black Belt Program
We train students to have Grit. Have you ever wondered why naturally talented people frequently fail to reach their potential while other far less gifted individuals go on to achieve amazing things? The secret to outstanding achievement is not (just) talent, but a passionate persistence; in other words, Grit.
Just when you thought your glory days were all over. Amaze yourself. Re-learn what you're capable of. Meet yourself right where you are to begin the journey towards self-discovery. Revolutionize the way you live by transforming the way you think, act, and treat yourself.
Assistant Instructor Program
Coupled with the President's Volunteer Service Award, the Assistant Instructor Program allows students to take charge in a safe environment, where they can grow into mature leaders; learn life skills and leadership qualities.
The competition team is not for the faint of heart. There are endless possibilities, but only if you truly work hard for it. You are required to put in countless hours of repetition and learning. It is where your resilience will be tested. It is the breeding ground for Champions.
President's Volunteer Service Award
Volunteer to give back to the community with your skills and talent by assisting during classes to junior athletes. Receive the highest-level award bestowed by the President of the United States. Include accolades like this on your college applications.
Independent Study Physical Education
The Independent Study Physical Education Waiver is for high school student-athletes who attend classes 5 times per week (Gold Membership required). Students will be able to replace the school's physical education with TKD.
The leadership seminar is a curriculum that was designed to instill confidence and leadership into all students who participate. We believe that leadership can be taught to students by providing a safe environment for them to flourish.
