About CMA

On behalf of everyone here, I would like to welcome you to the Center for Martial Arts. CMA strives to provide a safe environment for children and adults to improve their daily lives, both physically and mentally, utilizing the martial art of Tang Soo Do as a positive tool to achieve short and long term life goals. We aim to create a community for friendship and social activity and strive for excellence in innovative teaching methods, incorporating modern methods of education and human development with traditional martial arts.

CMA's curriculum has been designed to provide you with a unique balance of mental and physical coordination. Our programs stress the development of individual character, integrity, and respect for others. By providing this great learning atmosphere, our students develop coordination, balance, self-discipline and the ability to focus and succeed. All classes are taught in an atmosphere of pride, respect, discipline and compassion, emphasizing self-defense as a means to disable, not destroy.

The Center for Martial Arts has been a pillar in the martial arts community for over 25 years. I am extremely proud of the family of martial artists training and teaching here. With all of their assistance, the Center has been able to expand its teaching efforts through numerous locations throughout the San Diego communities of Carlsbad, Encinitas, Solana Beach, Del Mar, and Carmel Valley. Because of our dedication to our students and the innovation of teaching methods, the Center for Martial Arts has been recognized as a progressive force in the martial arts community. We look forward to being able to share this experience with you.
