Ribbon Cutting: Grandmaster Han’s Martial Arts / Previous page

Martial Arts Center Opens in Clinton

Grandmaster Han's Martial Arts

The Clinton Chamber of Commerce celebrated the Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting for Grandmaster Han’s Martial Arts, a new martial arts center opening in Clinton at the old Eoff Furniture Building on Main Street.

Classes are held each Monday night from 7-8PM. Instructors are certified by The World Youn Wha Ryu Association and the local center is lead by 4th degree black belt Tom Mullaney with the schools head being 3rd degree black belt Colton Gregory and assistant instructors Carin Huff and Rob Russ.

Grandmaster Han’s Martial Arts uses a foundation of basic principles that incorporate Christian values. Students’ focus is physical, mental and spiritual development using principles such as “be polite, be patient, be alert, be brave, do your best, respect yourself and others.” Members are treated as extended family members and the organization is family-oriented.

The martial arts form taught in Clinton is Youn Wha Ryu, a traditional and complex self-defense system that goes beyond “kicking and punching.” Students learn practical self-defense concepts that focus on increasing reaction, timing, speed and full-body power. The comprehensive curriculum includes the most effective and efficient techniques from Kung Fu, Karate, Tae Kwon Do, Hwarang Do, Jiu-Jitsu, Aikido, Judo, Hapkido, Kendo, Tai Chi, and others. The dynamic classes combine both aerobic and anaerobic training and encourage the development of self-discipline, perseverance, balance, agility, coordination, flexibility and total-body strength. Training can be modified as needed for students to be able to participate regardless of age and ability level.
