We are the Original Home for True Martial Arts in Oak Park, IL, building a legacy of martial arts excellence for more than 20 years.

We believe that the purpose of the Martial Arts Dojhang is to promote discipline and the Way which includes the Way of Life, Justice, Peace, and Prosperity. The Martial Arts Dojhang is NOT a playground nor is it a birthday party venue, it is a sacred space for human development and fostering a disciplined purpose, good health, strength, and community through practice. We believe the Martial Artist is “The One who follows and creates the Way using his/her own mind, body, and spirit.” Our teachers and instructors have a mission: they are responsible to develop each student’s highest quality of life. Our purpose is to “help the student discover the foundation of their life and build their interior kingdom.” This is true Martial Art. Total Martial Arts equals MuYae Do, the Way of the Complete Martial Artist, which includes Tae Kwon Do, Hapkido, Kumdo, Karate, Aikido, Judo, Kung-Fu, and many more.
