At the USA Martial Arts Training Centers, the Korean art of Tae Kwon Do and the Japanese art of Karate Do are taught essentially combined together. Both arts stem from basically the same origins in China , but evolved slightly differently due to the influence of other Martial Arts and philosophies in the two different countries.
Both arts stress strong kicking and punching techniques, with Tae Kwon Do training putting more emphasis on kicking and Karate putting more emphasis on hand techniques. The Chong Shin Kwan style of Tae Kwon Do Karate, as taught by Master Jarrett, puts equal importance in both arts. The Chong Shin Tae Kwon Do Karate Association governs and regulates the Chong Shin Kwan Style of Tae Kwon Do Karate as taught within the USA Martial Arts Federation.
The Tae Kwon Do Karate program at USA Martial Arts is available for adults, teens and children with many age and skill-level specific classes.
The USA Martial Arts Training Centers are licensed and recognized by the USA National Karate-do Federation (USA-NKF). The USA-NKF is the National Governing Body for Karate within the United States as recognized by the United States Olympic Committee.
