Our kids program uses a modern system of blocks, punches, and kicks that are more effective for street self-defense than the techniques in a traditional martial art.

Choi Kwang-Do (CKD) utilizes a “step by step” format of learning and perfecting hand and foot techniques before adding additional techniques. At its core, this system has dynamic patterns at each belt level in order for the student to practice their techniques and memorize their current level techniques. Students training in CKD can work towards earning a black belt.

As a student in CKD, your child will increase concentration, coordination, and strength through working their techniques on pads, focus mitts, and with each other in a safe environment. Your child will be safely taught how to perform self-defense drills and learn how to block and counter against a partner with drills designed to be fun, yet challenging.

Integrated into the system are strong messages about the merits of exercise, leading to a higher level of physical fitness and optimal health. Other messages include the rewards of hard work, setting goals in life, proper manners and respect for others.



Our program for 3-5 year old children is similar to the kids classes. We focus on the basics of the self defense material the kids learn. In addition, there is a strong focus on learning the rewards of hard work, setting goals in life, proper manners respect for others, and physical fitness.

All instructors leading the children’s classes have physical fitness requirements due to our school’s philosophy of leading by example.
“We practice what we preach and the instructors here are living testaments to the transformative effects of the martial arts.”


We offer several adult class options:

Krav Maga
Choi Kwong Do (CKD)
Fitness Bag Class
Weight Training



You will learn self-defense faster and more accurately than in a traditionally based martial art because Krav Maga focuses on reality-based training that addresses real-world dangers and the tactics that are used by those looking to victimize others. You will practice self-defense techniques on your first day to start building your real-world self-defense capability quickly.

How do we know what’s happening on the street?

Our organization, Krav Maga Worldwide (KMW), works closely with law enforcement. KMW is always evolving its techniques and curriculum, and continually educating its certified instructors in techniques that are seen in the real world. Instructors that are certified as part of the Krav Maga Worldwide family are held to the highest standards and are tested in grueling training sessions before being allowed to teach the ones we care about most, our students.

Who are our students?

Our students are young ladies and men, professional men and women (some that travel), people that work in higher risk environments, mothers, fathers, doctors, and lawyers.

More about Krav Maga

Krav Maga is widely accepted as the best self-defense system in the world today. By training Krav Maga at RHAMMA, you don’t just practice punches and kicks; you learn and practice real-world defenses and counter attacks that address the immediate danger to you or your loved one. If you are surprise attacked and find yourself unexpectedly in a confrontation, your training will kick in and you will react instinctively. This will ensure that you will be able to quickly and decisively neutralize the threat and get home safe.

Is it challenging? Yes. Is it worth it? Absolutely!

“Training in Krav Maga and learning to react to threats quickly and decisively allows you to walk through your life in peace and with great confidence. “

Our CKD martial arts program is a traditionally formatted system of martial arts that has been modernized with updated punches, blocks, and modern kicks.

The drills are all designed to simulate encounters on the street so that you, the student, have the best chance of defeating an attack and getting home safely.
