About White Tiger Martial Arts

White Tiger Martial Arts (WTMA) is the result of the Master Instructor’s nearly four decades of martial arts education: thirty-nine (39) years of Song Moo Kwan Taekwondo (including sport karate), 29 years of Seidokan Aikido, and 15 years of Haidong Gumdo (Korean Sword). Currently, Song Moo Kwan Taekwondo and Haidong Gumdo are main programs within the main school and its branches. Each martial art is taught as its own complete program. None of the training is "a mix of..." martial arts. The physical training has taught how to promote and develop the core concepts of self-esteem, self-control, and self-defense. While these are part of all true martial arts schools, our emphasis drives from encouraging the personal development of our students. The additional principles from across several martial arts provide the insights into learning, growth, and diversity. These lead to creating students who have skills that apply to ALL aspects of their lives.
