Vertical Journey Martial Arts exists for the purpose of helping people reach a higher personal potential. Our goal is to assist each student in becoming more confident and capable and to provide a platform from which to glorify God and spread His love to the local community.
We truly believe that martial arts training is one of the best tools for helping people become the best version of themselves. That being said, let me tell you a little about our system.
VJMA teaches a blended style of the traditional martial art of Taekwondo. This is a Korean art that was highly influenced by Japanese Karate and finally codified in the late 1940s through early 1950s. We lovingly call our style “blended”, because we also include skills from various other arts (Hapkido, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Junsado) into our system in order to help our students become skilled first in self-defense and secondly in martial arts.
