Why Youn Wha Ryu?
Joining up to study a martial art can be extremely rewarding for your fitness and your overall well being. Picking the right system to study is crucial if you're going to enjoy yourself and, ultimately, stick with it. So why is Youn Wha Ryu a good choice? Youn Wha Ryu is a complex martial arts system based in Taekwondo. Hailing from Korea, Taekwondo is one of the broadest forms of study. Statistically speaking, it has more followers than any other martial art and it's even an Olympic sport. Attacks include punches, kicks, and throws. Youn Wha Ryu differs from traditional Taekwondo because our martial arts system also incorporates techniques from Kung Fu, Karate, Hwarang Do, Jiu Jitsu, Aikido, Judo, Hapkido, Kendo, Tai Chi, and others.
Our organization also is an affiliated Royce Gracie Jiu Jitsu academy. This ground-based grappling technique broke off from Judo in the early 1900s. It really started to come to prominence when master Royce Gracie used it to dominate the early UFC tournaments. The object is to put your opponent in a submission hold that either knocks them out or inflicts so much pain that they have to submit. To control and overcome greater size, strength, and aggression with lesser size and strength is the keynote of Gracie Jiu Jitsu. This is done by utilizing superior leverage, grip and position upon your opponent. Students of the sport gain a deep understanding of the workings and limits of the human body.
In Youn Wha Ryu Martial Arts Association Academies Students learn practical self-defense concepts that focus on increasing reaction, timing, speed and full-body power. Training can be modified as needed for students to be able to participate regardless of age and ability level. The traditional family-oriented martial arts classes are approximately one-hour in length and follow a structured format. Rank (belt) promotion is an option for students who train consistently, learn all the required rank level curriculum, and receive instructor's recommendation. Promotional testings are judged by Master level instructors of the Youn Wha Ryu Martial Arts Association.
