Club History: The University of Cincinnati Martial Arts Club has been providing students with martial arts instruction for more than 40 years. Our club focuses on the Korean martial art of Taekwondo. Out of the hundreds of martial arts, Taekwondo focuses the most on kicking. Kicking drills build strength, flexibility, stamina and agility. In addition to kicking drills, the club focuses on forms, sparring and self-defense. Taekwondo is an excellent way to get into (or stay in) good physical shape and the UC Martial Arts Club provides a fun way to do it!
Accomplishments: Ahn’s Classic tournament turned out great this spring. We recently had several members earn medals at the Indy Cup.
