Other Information

Strict Rules for Safety

At TMAC we have strict rules in class that everyone must follow. These rules help keep everyone safe and help everyone learn faster!

1993

Year the Traditional Martial Arts Center was founded 

“Rank and Seniority” 

When lining up in class, we stand in order of RANK (what gup level you are) and SENIORITY (how long you’ve had your rank). 

Chamber Hand 

When punching or blocking, one hand executes the technique while the second hand always pulls back into the “chamber” position.
