Back to Class…Outside

Starting next Wednesday (May 20th), WTMA will have outdoor classes in the park south of the school.  There should be plenty of space to spread out and keep sections under the 10 person limit. After all, there are 4 softball fields there! This will continue as long as necessary.

These will be 90 minute classes starting at 6:00pm.

Wednesdays = Haidong Gumdo
Thursdays = Pine Tree Taekwondo

Sweats & T-shirts acceptable. Shoes as preferred. Masks as desired. Please message Master F. if you plan to attend on May 20th. There is some additional information.

You can use this Google Maps link to see the park. We’ll gather near the playground and organize from there. If you select the satellite view (toggle in lower left), you can see the layout of the park.

Fall 2018 Update


WTMA is adding Aikido to its’ training program offerings! Starting September 10th, the Aikido class will be held at the Twin Cities location from 8:00 pm – 8:50 pm on Mondays and Wednesdays. This program is open to anyone age 14 and up. It will be based on the Seidokan Aikido curriculum. It will be good to have the Suzume Aikido Dojo open again!



Beginning September 1, 2018, the tuition for White Tiger Martial Arts programs will rise from $80/month to $95/month. The cost for training in an additional program or having additional family members training will NOT change. Adding other programs or family members will stay at $30/month per program or family member. This will have a maximum tuition of $245/month.

There are no contracts, only a 30 day advance notice to end tuition charges. The first month in any program is still free. Online payments through PayPal are preferred and can be set up through the tuition page. The new tuition will be online as of September 1, 2018. Current students who have not set up the automatic subscription can do so until August 31, 2018 or by contacting me for the link.

Current students will continue at their current tuition. Your loyalty and dedication is greatly appreciated and being rewarded.

Dynamic Duo Reign At Arnold Sports Festival

Brooklyn Center residents, Mark and Sarah Wurdeman, placed first and/or second in every event that they competed in during the Arnold Sports Festival 2018 held in Columbus, OH.

The international event hosted several hundred competitors in over 40 martial arts divisions. Mark and Sarah, students in Taekwondo (Korean Karate) and Haidong Gumdo (Korean sword) at White Tiger Martial Arts, headquartered in Fridley. Both are senior students and instructors there.

Mark placed first in all four divisions that he competed – Tang Soo Do forms, Traditional Taekwondo forms, Weapons and Target cutting. Sarah had the misfortune of competing against Mark in three of the four divisions and against black belt ladies in another. Sarah will test for her black belt in Taekwondo in May 2018.

White Tiger Martial Arts focuses on the personal development of each student and uses tournaments as a way to challenge knowledge/understanding plus provide an opportunity to spend time with like-minded martial artists.
