Universal Martial Arts California is a safe environment to learn, practice, and study the discipline of Tae Kwon Do and practical self-defense.
The Best Kids Martial Arts in Carmel Valley
We train multiple styles of martial arts and self-defense with a primary focus in traditional Tae Kwon Do. Widely considered to be one of the most popular and commonly trained martial arts today, Tae Kwon Do provides students with the core fundamentals of kicks and strikes needed to either defend themselves or use in competition.
These classes are designed by our professional staff to bring the best out of your child in a safe and encouraging environment.
