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.
