& Student Care
Facility, Inc. (Houston
& Jersey Village)
Are you interested in learning Martial arts?
What styles do we teach?
Is this school the right fit for me?
Are you new relocating to this area?
Are you looking for a different school which offers quality
instruction with an excellent learning environment?
You will find traditional Martial
arts instruction at our school. This is our foundation.
Taekwondo and Hapkido are taught as a martial art, not a
martial sport. We teach consistently with traditional
methods that are constantly evolving as we strive to provide
the best quality, in-depth instruction, and training
available in Taekwondo and Hapkido today.
From the beginning and throughout
history, Taekwondo and Hapkido applicants, who qualified and
were selected as students, were required to learn the known
subjects of their time: Math, Science, Language Arts, Social
Studies, Poetry and Calligraphy. Our school follows this
same model; this is why our highest priority is placed on
the cultivation of students’ character, not just kicking,
punching, and acquiring new belts.
In staying with tradition, Universal
Taekwondo-Hapkido students of school age are taught a system
of core values, tempered by embracing strong academics. The
development of accountability and responsibility for our
school age Taekwondo-Hapkido students begins with a
structured environment. All school age students are
required to present each and every academic report, progress
report/report card, to their instructors as it becomes
available to them.
Throughout history, society has held
martial arts students and artists to a higher standard that
developed their discipline and manner. In the past and now
in the present, the intended purpose for such high standards
was for the development and cultivation of students’
character. Martial arts students are expected to become not
just role models, but leaders, in all facets of their life
From our Little Tigers through our
adult Taekwondo and Hapkido students, you will see a
consistent and graduated progression of strong discipline,
organized, and consistent instruction that has been
developed for the age group being taught. After one month
of becoming a Universal Taekwondo-Hapkido student, you will
notice the change in yourself or your child; you will be
different. After six months of becoming a Universal
Taekwondo-Hapkido student, you will have evolved in a most
profound way. This, however, is only the beginning of your
martial arts education. Every student will continuously
evolve throughout their martial arts journey. This is why
Master instructor and student relationships are so
important; they must be cohesive and reciprocated. We
believe decorum breeds camaraderie through mutual respect.
Students at Universal Taekwondo-Hapkido
should expect to be challenged and inspired as never before.
Your mind, body, and spirit will be transformed as you make
your martial arts journey studying Taekwondo and/or Hapkido.
We look forward to welcoming you into
our family as you join us in your own martial arts voyage.
