Master Jeff asked what I want to learn before class and the lesson was very much personalized to my need. I had a very practical self defense course. Every minute of the 1.5 hour course was worthwhile! Master Jeff is a great teacher. Nice staff there too. I would definitely recommend this course to others!

Youth & Adult Martial Arts Classes – Ages 7 and Above • $20.00

At South Miami Taekwondo, we do not believe in so called ã³´reet fighting.ä  Unless oneâ³ life is seriously threatened, our policy is to turn the other cheek. The use of martial arts for violence is and in our opinion always has been a misuse. Martial arts are for making yourself a better person. However, there are times when combat is truly unavoidable, like in the case of a home invasion, for example. Another example of unavoidable combat is armed, forcible rape. These situations involve violent criminals whoâ³ intent is ultimately to seriously damage or kill our physical bodies. Arm bars, jumping kicks and other fancy Hollywood martial arts tricks are risky at best in these situations. They are difficult to actually pull off under an extreme adrenal state and worse, they tangle the victim in a contest with the attacker rather than focus on escape, which is our number one goal of self defense at South Miami Taekwondo. More reasonable, simple to use weapons involve little or no training at all: Yell for help. Bite. Gouge the eyes. Improvised weapons are also must in real self-defense combat. We train improvised blunt weapons (bat, stick, book, tire iron), sharp weapons (broken glass shard with towel, tin can lid with towel, pencil) and environmental / defensive weapons (book, tree, roll under a car, walls, table, chair). When should you fight? Good question. We ask our students several questions: In the situation you have in mind, what would you have your grandmother do? This is what you should do too. Also, if you WANT to fight, this is probably a conflict in which you should not be involved. If you do NOT want to fight, youâ²¥ probably going to HAVE to fight. Jose Menendez ridgehand through 3 boards!At South Miami Taekwondo,
