Tae Kwon Do is considered a basis for Youn Wha Ryu Tae Sool and it can be learned by nearly anyone.  This is why Tae Kwon Do was incorporated into Youn Wha Ryu Tae Sool.  However, Youn Wha Ryu Tae Sool is complex and requires several years of basic Martial Arts training before its concepts can be understood.  Training in the Youn Wha Ryu Tae Sool system students are well equipped to deal with any fighting method they may encounter.

Thank you and welcome to our web site.  My name is Mr. Steve DiFiore and the Senior Instructor.
Youn Wha Ryu Tae Sool Martial Arts is a traditional and complex self-defense system that goes beyond "kicking and punching." Students learn practical self-defense concepts that focus on increasing reaction, timing, speed and full-body power. The comprehensive curriculum includes the most effective and efficient techniques from Kung Fu, Karate, Tae Kwon Do, Hwarang Do, Jiu-Jitsu, Aikido, Judo, Hapkido, Kendo, and others. The dynamic classes combine both aerobic and anaerobic training and encourage the development of self-discipline, perseverance, balance, agility, coordination, flexibility and total-body strength. Training can be modified as needed for students to be able to participate regardless of age and ability level. The traditional family-oriented martial arts classes are approximately one-hour in length and follow a structured format.   Each class focuses on the six training principles:
                   Be Polite                         Be Patient                            Be Alert                         
                   Be Brave                         Do Your Best                    Respect Yourself and Others

Rank promotion is an option for students who train consistently, learn all the required rank level curriculum, and receive instructor's recommendation. Promotional testings are judged by Youn Wha Ryu Tae Sool Association Master level instructors.
