Adult Martial Arts

Q: “Is there a risk for injury with Martial Arts?”

Any sport or form of exercise comes with a risk of injury. However, there are a few things that make our program very safe. It's because of these few things that we barely see any injuries with our program.

Stretching: At the beginning of every class we go through a series of stretches. These stretches get your muscles and joints ready and warmed up for exercise.

Supervision: Every class is supervised by trained, certified professionals. We watch carefully to make sure no student is doing anything in a dangerous or unsafe way.

In short, we place a tremendous amount of focus on fun and safety. It's because of this that we feel confident telling you that while there is risk for injury with our program - it's a very small risk.

Q: “What level of fitness is required for Martial Arts?”

People come to us of all fitness levels. We get natural-born athletes, and we get people who have a harder time with athletic endeavors. However, everyone gets the same focus and attention.

If you're not in great shape, don't worry. Go at your own pace, and we'll do everything we can to help you learn each and every technique. Soon enough, your physical fitness will improve, and you'll be in better shape than ever!

Q: “I've heard Martial Arts is violent. Is this true?”

Absolutely not! Martial Arts is about peace, balance & harmony. It's about becoming in touch with your body and all of life. It's about happiness and fulfillment.

The guiding principles of Martial Arts help you diffuse situations before violence becomes a part of them. However, if a hostile situation does ever come about, you'll have the tools you need to keep you and your loved ones safe.

Master Brown began his martial arts training at the Korean Martial Arts Institute's Newark location in May of 1997 when he was only 8 years old.

Currently, Master Brown holds a 4th degree black belt in Hapkido and 4th degree masters rank in Tang Soo Do.

He truly enjoys helping students develop their own passion for the martial arts. One of Master Brown's favorite things about teaching is being able to work with the youth students. He enjoys their energy, enthusiasm, and watching them grow up in the martial arts school, as he did.

Master Brown also has a passion for fitness and is always willing to try new exercises and innovative ways to stay fit.

He graduated from the University of Delaware with a Degree in Exercise Science and spent almost a year working at a YMCA as their Youth Fitness Director. However, he realized that there is no place like Korean Martial Arts Institute and returned to the school full-time.

Master Brown has always considered Korean Martial Arts Institute his home and is always willing to do everything he can for his students.
