The YMCA teaches martial arts techniques in a way that builds character, strength and self-confidence.

Tai Chi

This ancient Chinese martial art taught in the Yang Style is a highly effective system of exercise. Students learn the slow, gentle, continuous dance-like movements that develop strength, balance, poise and relaxation. The low impact nature of the movement makes the class especially suitable for those wishing to protect their joints.


Tang Soo Do Karate

Through practice of basic techniques, kata (forms), and various levels of sparring, students learn self-defense. A traditional Korean form of Karate, Tang Soo Do, promotes positive attitudes, develops strength, balance, coordination, flexibility, discipline and teaches enhanced concentration and self-confidence.
