Our core curriculum is based on the traditional art of Tae Kwon Do, known for its kicks and footwork, it also incorporates elements of Hapkido, a grappling and throwing art as well as Okinawan and Filipino weapons. This well rounded curriculum gives our students the essential understanding of self defense concepts, as well as everyday movements for everyday life, such as bending, squatting and lifting or falling without injury.

America’s Best Karate of Danville teaches more than Tae Kwon Do. Our traditional martial arts curriculum includes traditional forms, reality-based self defense, sparring, weapons training and test breaking, using powerful strikes with speed and accuracy to break boards and bricks.
