About

My son was born with low muscle tone, had poor balance and needed physical and occupational therapy. We wanted him in an activity but knew he would not excel at sports, so we signed him up for karate. After two years at MAFC, our son tested normally in all areas and was discharged from services. He now has excellent balance, coordination, empowerment and self esteem, and will continue taking classes and advancing. Bryan Preston has always been patient, kind and willing to give extra help as needed. Highly recommended.

Sifu Dale Yaeger is an outstanding instructor. I have been doing martial arts for quite a few years now, and I believe that what matters is not the discipline you are doing but the instructor of that discipline is the one who makes the difference. Sifu Yaeger is a quite experienced instructor, he makes every student feel that he is very well taken care of during the classes. Everything he teaches, he ensures that students understands the philosophy behind it which is the real essence of martial arts. I definitely recommend practicing with Sifu Yeager for every martial art enthusiast.

About

I came to the Urban Defense Center for self-defense and personal protection skills, and I fell in love with it during the very first class! Master Whitaker provided personalized and meaningful instruction that helped me feel comfortable learning new techniques. I learned so much about self-defense and awareness, I recommend this class to everybody. I have since taken his fitness classes as well. They are an excellent workout! The Urban Defense Martial Arts and the Tai Fit Fitness programs are the best in the country - truly top notch instruction!

About

We offer private instruction in Goshinjutsu, a Japanese-style non-martial program that focuses exclusively on escape techniques and other self-defense skills that are immediately applicable to real-life situations. Modern self-defense training must be practical and comprehensive to be effective. In addition to effective defense techniques, we provide information on the physiology of attack-and-defense, the psychology of perpetrators of assault and, most importantly, proven strategies for avoiding assaults. These elements combine to create a very comprehensive system of practical self-defense. During class we emphasize safety, respect, and patience. Anyone can succeed in our program. All that is needed is a sincere desire to learn.

About

Established in 1983 by Master Mario Cancelliere under the "EL" (Elevated Station) in the Frankford section of Philadelphia, the USTC-Red Tiger has become one of the most recognizable and respected martial arts organizations of ITF-style taekwondo in the area. With various locations throughout Philadelphia and surrounding suburbs, the USTC hopes to spread Taekwon-do to students of all ages and socio-economic backgrounds. Through its family discounted programs, no contractual agreements, flexible hours and variety of classes, the USTC-Red Tiger demonstrates its commitment to students of all ages and abilities. Many people believe that the martial arts are just for children. That could not be further from the truth. Taekwon-do was developed as a method of self-defense. Because of its origins in the Orient, it is based on the principles of humility, respect, integrity, patience, perseverance, and loyalty. This philosophy is the cornerstone of conduct indicative of true martial artists. But Taekwon-do is much more than just one of the most efficient methods of unarmed self-defense, it serves as an invaluable tool for improving self-control, stamina, flexibility, coordination, relieving stress, sharpening reflexes and controlling weight. If you are looking for something other than martial arts instruction, we also offer two types of exciting fitness classes, Cardio-Kick (Aerobic Kickboxing) and Zumba (Latin aerobics). RED TIGER TKD
