Our Mission

Our mission is to help you to improve your life through discipline, self-awareness and respect. That is the very essence of the Main Line approach. Our goal is to help you become the person that you want to be and to leave here a better person than they were when they first walk through the door. We have a genuine interest and care for each student that walks through our door. One of our goals is to leave an immeasurable impact on your life.

Our focus is a traditional Korean style of martial arts, called Tang Soo Do. Tang Soo Do is designed to develop individual character, mental strength, integrity and respect for others, which has been its fundamental way ever since its origination in Korea over 2,000 years ago. This ancient style of martial arts uses empty hand, foot and weapon fighting based on the scientific use of the body in self defense. Technically, Tang Soo Do applies the principles of yielding, circular motion and penetrations to target the weakest points of an opponent. Its reputation for superior kicking techniques and leg development is unsurpassed.

The Main Line School prides itself on providing high quality instruction, from passionate and highly trained instructors. We believe that through our program, students can develop very important life skills such as self-control, self-discipline, respect, confidence, positive body awareness and a drive to excel in all areas of life by always pushing themselves to strive for high levels of performance; both on the karate floor and within their day-to-day lives. These are skills that will make them not only great martial artists, but that will also equip them with character attributes to carry through in all areas of their lives.

We encourage you to come by the studio and talk to us in person, or contact us to see why the study of martial arts at the Main Line School of Karate is simply more than just a few martial arts lessons, it is guaranteed to be a life-transforming experience that you will never forget!
