At Omaha Blue Waves Martial Arts we primarily teach two different martial arts.
The first is TaeKwon-Do. TaeKwon-Do is a Korean martial art. Taekwondo was developed during the 1940s and 1950s by various martial artists by incorporating elements of Karate and Chinese Martial Arts with indigenous Korean martial arts traditions such as Subak, and Kwonbeop. Omaha Blue Waves teaches the Chung Do Kwan style with original Chang Hon patterns created by Gen. Choi Hong Hi (et.al). We are considered a traditional school because our classes are taught in much the same way as they were when they were first developed. We do not utilize Sine Wave techniques, but rather the predecessor of this application … primary hip rotation. Students at Omaha Blue Waves are expected to learn eastern/western anatomy and physiology concepts, hoosinsool, and historical information about their style. Rank progression is tied to skill and knowledge development.
The other main art taught at Omaha Blue Waves is Hapkido. Hapkido (also spelled hap ki do or hapki-do; is a highly eclectic Korean martial art. It is a form of that employs similar joint locks, grappling and techniques to other martial arts, as well as kicks, punches, and other striking attacks. Hapkido contains both long- and close-range fighting techniques, utilizing jumping kicks and percussive hand strikes at longer ranges as well as pressure point strikes, joint locks, or throws at closer fighting distances. Hapkido emphasizes circular motion, redirection of force, and control of the opponent.
We, also, teach a variety of specialized classes such as extreme martial arts (gymnastic tricking), Kumdo (Korean sword), and other specialized modalities. Contact us to learn more.
