Mach Martial Arts About our Studio

Vision

Why Mach Martial Arts?
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, breaking, performing in front of others, etc.) and healthy habits (being clean, helping others, sharing, being aware of surroundings, etc.) 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/maintain/enhance 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.
Thank you for considering Mach Martial Arts in the important decision of entrusting us with a part of your growth and maturity. We hope to witness all the beautiful and wonderful moments that will shape the person of who you are and who you will come to be. ๐Ÿ˜€

Mission Statement

I want to have a love of self; the ability to self-reflect and possess self-awareness that surpasses my current state and condition.ย  I want to love others in the same manner, because the capacity to love others will grow exponentially more when I truly come to love myself.ย  I want to love wisely and not sparingly; to strive to excel in all I do, in all that I put my mind to, in every aspect of being โ€œhuman.โ€ I want to present the best version of myself to others in mind, body, soul and spirit.ย  I want to strive not for perfection, but for wholeness. I want to influence the future generations to realize their full-potential; in essence, to foster a safe environment where they can learn to accomplish their greatest feat in life:ย  to love themselves to the fullness they deserve to be loved.

History of Mach Martial Arts

Grandmaster Jooyoung Ahn’sย philosophy of life was simple because he realized that “less is more.” He knew deep within his heart that if he could plant just one small seed of hope and confidence in every child that comes through his doors, they would grow up to be UNSTOPPABLE.
Therefore, he, together with his wife, Mrs. Hyunsook Ahn, established Mach Martial Arts in Fremont, CA more than 25 years ago, with the simple and humble dream of creating a Taekwondo Family; a safe community amidst the constant change of life, where students of all ages can find their sense of belonging, to feel loved, be free to explore and train. Since then, they passed down their personal philosophy to their two sons; Master Sungjin Ahn and Master Sungwoo Ahn.
