LATKD was founded by Master Mihai Valeriu. Our system is built on a consistent curriculum integrating various styles of martial arts, specifically Tae Kwon Do and Hapkido. It has been successfully taught through the years to children and adults. Many of our students have become masters in their own right, attesting to the high quality and standards of our system. Our Studio is open 6 days a week with classes starting as young as 3 1/2 years old to adults of any age.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is taught by Black Belt Mihai Valeriu. It focuses on the principles of leverage and proper technique to obtain dominant control on the ground, and provides a greater position to resolve conflict by using submission holds. BJJ is an effective method for dealing with bigger and stronger opponents and has become increasingly popular due in part to its great success in the UFC & MMA . It has found its way into the training regiment of nearly every successful martial artist worldwide.
MIXED MARTIAL ARTS
It has been proven time and again that MMA is the best form of self-defense. If the combination of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Muay Thai work against a trained opponent, imagine how effective those arts are against an untrained attacker on the street. In addition, MMA is a phenomenal workout and provides a myriad of benefits. We offer an exciting and safe environment for training Mixed Martial Arts.
