We utilize various traditional martial art styles in order to realistically create opportunities for positive self-growth, both personally and professionally.  With our extensive background in law enforcement, we are able to realistically provide information in a manner that is truly needed and welcomed by a civilian population.  Furthermore, our law enforcement professionals are also provided with techniques and tactics that are legally, medically, and tactically excepted.

Most people journey into the martial arts for specific reasons such as self-defense, physical fitness, and self-confidence.  Regardless of the reason, various attributes help the students obtain their goals.  These attributes include focus, discipline, concentration, and situational awareness.  Saeng Jeon Do is interpreted as a way of survival and relies on these attributes to create a safer and more proactive environment.

Our current training location is in the recreation building of Mt. Olive Lutheran Church 2780 North Center Street Hickory NC 28601.  Please contact us for scheduled hours of training.
