Established in 2005, DIMA is dedicated to helping students grow physically and mentally. Our professional, certified black belt instructors are specially trained to bring out the best in every student. Not only do students have fun, get in great shape, and learn effective self-defense, but our specialized programs also help them develop the confidence, discipline, and self esteem necessary to succeed in anything they do. We also offer private self defense training for local businesses and community partners.

There are many reasons to study taekwondo and hapkido. The first three are perhaps the most obvious: physical fitness, discipline, and self defense. Students in our classes engage in dynamic fitness activities in a safe and fun environment while learning how to protect themselves in defense situations. They learn discipline through activities that require concentration, focus, and active listening. In addition, martial arts is a year-long activity; there are no “seasons” like in traditional sports such as basketball or soccer, so students can continue learning throughout the year. Check out the Taekwondo and Hapkido pages for more information about the fitness skills students at DIMA learn!
Students of taekwondo and hapkido learn more than physical fitness and mental discipline. They also develop self-esteem and leadership capabilities. Students learn to
Set and achieve goals
Gain confidence from achieving their goals
Develop enthusiasm for learning
Take responsibility for their actions
Children also earn higher grades in school as a result of the skills they learn in taekwondo and hapkido classes. Families who do taekwondo and/or hapkido together are also brought closer by working hard together and striving for the same goals.
Finally, because their martial arts training instills them with discipline, respect, perseverance, and enthusiasm, students of taekwondo and hapkido learn how to be better people who live stable, happy lives. Our students participate in events that help them become caring and compassionate individuals.
