Martial Arts

Learn Karate, Kung-Fu, Taekwondo and other martial arts styles through traditional training and practice of Bushido (code of honor). Develop a strong foundation that protects you physically and emotionally, learn forms, self-defense, blocks, kicks, and empower yourself so you act instinctively to any given situation. Most importantly, define your own sense of honor by exercising fundamental qualities and carry yourself with self-respect, self-discipline, ambition, and humility.

Those seeking to advance in the practice towards earning a black belt in Mixed Martial Arts (Karate, Kung-Fu, Taekwondo, Jiu Jitsu, Aikido, Hapkido and others) are encouraged to speak with the instructor about the option of joining the worldwide organization called PaSaRyu (Way of Honor). This is completely optional and independent from Orange County Recreation; students may participate in Martial Arts without joining PaSaRyu, but will need to register if they wish to pursue belts.
