Tae Kwon Do means the way of the hand and foot. It is a traditional Korean martial art that not only provides major physical benefits, but also offers a positive, healthy way of releasing everyday stress and tension.
The family that kicks together has fun together as they learn this centuries-old discipline that develops the mind, body and spirit and encourages a balance of knowledge, strength and honesty.
Paramount Martial Arts Center provides karate for children, teenagers and adults. We pride ourselves on fun, structured classes, taught in a safe and positive environment by professionally trained instructors. Our carefully structured programs go far beyond punching, blocking and kicking. We use the Martial Arts as a means of teaching Life Skills, in order to help improve all aspects of a student’s life.
A Modern Approach to Self-Defense
Although our techniques are based on centuries old knowledge, our application of that knowledge sets Paramount Martial Arts Center apart from the other schools. We realize that each student possesses different physical abilities. Size and strength varies with each individual, so once you have acquired a strong foundation in the basics, our program will enhance your personal physical capabilities and maximize your self-defense skills. You will understand exactly what it takes, mentally, and physically, to defend yourself or your loved ones should the need ever arise.
Master Barb Hauger, Began her Tae Kwon Do training in 1983. She quickly realized that the martial arts are much more than blocks, punches, and kicks.
She found that not only did she learn how to defend herself, but her confidence soared and her overall happiness increased.
Now, as an instructor & owner of Paramount Martial Arts Center, Master Hauger strives to give back to students – helping them realize the positive impact of the martial arts. Barb’s goal has always been, to help improve as many lives as possible.
