Creekside Martial Arts

Creekside Martial Arts is a family-oriented martial arts school that primarily teaches ITF TaeKwon-Do at its foundation. The main elements of ITF TaeKwon-Do are kicking techniques from the ancient foot fighting art of TaeKyon, hand techniques from western style Boxing and philosophies stemming from Eastern traditions. With scientific research, TaeKwon-Do changed the delivery of our techniques so every attack and defence is performed with maximum efficiency. ITF TaeKwon-Do is ‘Scientific Usage of the Body for Self-Defence’. There are no weapons in TaeKwon-Do, all techniques are unarmed including self-defence. As such, TaeKwon-Do is a very practical martial art for everyday use. For students that have a strong grasp on the more advanced TaeKwon-Do techniques, we introduce elements of other martial arts such as Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Wrestling, Muay Thai, Judo and others. Their school provides a family-friendly environment that is challenging for even the best athletes.
