Oom Yung Doe training is a way for your child to earn a strong mind and body. What is more important than this?

No matter who you are, you must take care of yourself. Without physical and mental health, one cannot achieve true happiness. Through diligent Oom Yung Doe practice, your child will better understand this principle of life.

Through Oom Yung Doe practice, your child will develop many skills and abilities: jumping, kicking, spinning, rolling, and much more. These skills will help your child in any physical endeavor. Mentally, your child will gain the focus, patience, and determination that serve as a foundation for success in life.

One of the most important things your child will gain from practice is confidence. Confidence is the key to unlocking potential. It builds self respect, and it helps one manage adversity.

Skill and ability are important, but in order to accomplish anything, one must have the confidence to act decisively using one’s skill and ability. Insecurity leads to indecision, and indecision can turn success into failure.

The confidence gained through Oom Yung Doe martial arts practice does not make an individual more violent or aggressive. Rather, it is fear, insecurity, and lack of confidence that elicit the poor judgment that leads to violence. Someone is more likely to bully or lose patience when angry or afraid than when calm and self-assured. Oom Yung Doe training is both a mental and physical challenge. At any given time, your child will know what he or she can do. It is this self knowledge, combined with the experience gained in the practice room, that will give your child confidence. This confidence will last a lifetime.

Master Level Training Seminars &

Dan Hyung Championship Programs

This personalized training involves learning Dan Hyungs taught by the Master Level Training Teaching Team. Students learn directly from a Traditional Martial Arts Master!  These longer and challenging forms (Hyung) more effectively develop speed, coordination, agility, strength and balance. These Open Hand or Weapon forms allow students to “specialize” in certain styles or skills. After being taught the form by a Master, students will continue to receive coaching from their Instructors. Children and Juniors in this Program can attend the weekly Championship Lessons on Saturdays at noon.  See an Instructor for more details about this program.

For those looking to challenge themselves even further, students can demonstrate these Dan Hyung forms in an Oom Yung Doe Local, Regional or National Tournament.  By participating in a Tournament, students are more motivated to practice and strive towards perfecting their movements, allowing greater development and increasing their confidence.
