The Backbone of U.S.
Taekwondo and Hapkido Martial Arts Center
If there were two words to describe the atmosphere
at U.S. Taekwondo Hapkido Martial Arts Center. They would be HONOR and INTEGRITY.
That's because the owners and Instructors live that lifestyle to the best of their
ability. Master Phil Peplinski and Chief Instructor Patrick Brown (right) set out to open
a Martial Arts School based on the beliefs that if you are true to your purpose and to all
you meet you will be successful in life.
We bought out a local school, that at the time had 15 students. Based on the condition of
the facility it was no wonder. With alot of hard work and long hours of painting and
repairing the school took shape and the community responded with nothing but support. Soon
the school grew while building great friendships along the way. We both can see our
purpose, and that is to make a difference. It's that simple.
Yet we are just a catalyst, the real strength of any school, is it's
students. Our students make us shine. Not only on the training floor, but in the way they
try to live their lives.
Be true to yourself and do not limit yourself, but
always respect all other Martial Arts. Listen instead of saying, this is how we do it.
