Carmichael Martial Arts

Learn how to protect yourself & your loved ones. And get in great shape at the same time.

The 5 Ways We Change Lives,
For Both Kids & Adults.

Hello and welcome,

We're so proud of you for investing in yourself and your personal protection! Our Carmichael martial arts school is a place to get fit, learn self-defense and practice TaeKwonDo… but the truth is it's so much more.

Did you know that our students experience serious, life-changing benefits beyond physical fitness when they train with us? Most of them are not prepared for the soul-filling, heartwarming effects of our classes and how they change a person's whole outlook on life.

We’ve had students struggling through depression, loneliness, and even divorce spring to life in our classes. We’ve seen children struggling with attention issues become focused and transform into model students.

The benefits of training are life altering and positive. Below we’d like to share a few more changes our students tell us they love experiencing too.

#1Sizzlin’ Self-Confidence

Something amazing happens when you start to move your body and incorporate physical fitness into your life...it creates an anchor. An anchor for more happiness, for a feeling of accomplishment, and a really big boost in confidence! You’ll have a network of passionate instructors and classmates ready to support you as you strive to bust through your martial arts and fitness goals.

As you progress through class you will realize how amazing and capable you can be. Realizing that makes you feel more confident and sure of your ability to handle whatever other challenges life throws your way.

Both kids and adults experience this and it’s one of the greatest things to see as a teacher. Wallflower students blossom into dynamic leaders in the classroom while adults tackle everyday tasks with gusto and a "can do" attitude.

#2Improved Focus

Martial arts is challenging and requires your full attention. As you concentrate hard on listening to the instructor, then performing what they taught you, you start to build crucial links in your brain which boost your ability to focus.

What’s great is that this intense concentration naturally pours into all other areas of your life.

Adults report being able to not only concentrate better at work, but they’re able to clear their mind at the end of the day better as well. Kids benefit too as they pay more attention at school and at home.

#3Boosted Physical Fitness

Whether you’re an elite athlete looking for a competitive edge or if you’re a total beginner and think a burpee is a bodily function, we take pride in meeting all of our students where they are. Our passionate and caring instructors work with YOU to meet your fitness goals.

In a positive and motivating environment, you’ll get a great workout, practice dynamic martial arts specific conditioning, and have a blast. Before you know it, the class is over, and you not only learned powerful martial arts...

... you got a great workout, too. Being physically fit boosts energy, mental clarity, and confidence as well.

#4Community & Family Ties

Martial artists are some of the most down-to-earth people you’ll ever meet. Highly skilled and dedicated to the lifestyle, we're definitely a tight-knit group here.

Students, their families, and our instructors are all about support and friendship. You’ll make tons of new friends for life, cheer each other on during tough times, and celebrate during victories.

Friendship, motivation, and dedication - that’s the foundation of the martial arts way of life. It's truly great to experience.

#5You'll Have FUN!

Working out and fun? Yup! Our classes are a blast! Martial arts is a way of life for us and we want you to have a good life too. We work hard but we play hard too. 

Did you know that the average adult only laughs about 20 times per day? Our classes strive to make you above average in every way - and that includes your mental well-being.

Laughing and smiles are part of every class as well as high fives and TONS of support.

At Carmichael Academy - Family Taekwondo we believe that families grow strong together.


Whether you're on your own, looking for a hot spot to make new friends and learn amazing self-defense moves, or you're a family in need of some quality time while getting physically fit - we have classes that will help you reach your goals while having a blast!


Our robust class offerings are perfect for adults and teens training on their own, kids getting into martial arts, and families that want to train together. Ultimately, your new friends in class will become like your family.


You'll grow and learn together, encourage each other, and make life-long connections both in and outside of class. Taekwondo is just as much about what happens inside class as it is what happens outside as well.


Kids tend to be more respectful in school and are eager to do chores at home since they learn about discipline, focus, and respect in class. Even adults claim their focus is better at work and they feel more confident when approaching an issue or difficult task.


All experience levels are welcome. Classes are full of high fives AND high kicks as you get flexible, improve hand to eye coordination, and feel a huge boost in confidence. The environment is positive and focused on you.


Plus...our students don't try to outdo each other. We don't have "showoffs" and there is never any military style yelling or belittling someone in class to make a point. Respect, camaraderie, and preserving the honor and values of taekwondo are of the utmost importance to us.


Did you know that taekwondo means "the way of the foot and fist"? Tae means "to destroy with the feet", Kwon is "to strike" and Do is "way". It's also a martial art and combat sport with a rich history and Olympic level athletes.


Experience ancient traditions with a modern flare. In our classes, we'll introduce you to the legendary Taekwondo culture (you may even learn how to count in Korean!) and help you as you strike, block, defend, and attack through our unique Taekwondo training. Rooted in Korean tradition, but, updated with modern teaching techniques - we strive to give you the best possible training available to suit your needs.


Caring Instructors Guide Your Training. Have you heard of a dojo? Well, in taekwondo we train in a "Dojang" and use a belt ranking system with different color belts for each level. Six different colors to be exact! You'll progress through the ranks based on your own merits. We don't compare students to each other eaither; you compete against your own personal best to advance and our instructors cheer you on the entire time!


Get in the Best Shape of Your Life. Not into competition or combat sports? That's ok too! Taekwondo is a great way to get physically fit no matter what your starting level is. Martial artists are typically in phenomenal shape since they have to use their body to protect themselves and loved ones.


Some basic conditioning you'll become familiar with might include advanced stretching, high intensity interval training cardio drills, punching drills to get lean & toned arms, and lots of kicks!


With taekwondo the injury rate is much lower than other martial arts such as mixed martial arts or even karate. Super powerful, high kicks are the signature trait of the sport, so we make sure you are warmed up, stretched, and ready for action before each and every class to avoid injury. We want you to have fun and come back to class after all!


You'll learn to move your body in a whole new way as you tone up and shed any unwanted weight as well. Classes are always upbeat and positive, leaving you sweaty but eager to do it all over again!


It's estimated that over 70 million people in 188 countries practice Taekwondo. Many of which are Black Belts! Actors such as Chuck Norris, Jean Claude Van Damme, and even Jackie Chan have practiced the sport. We can't wait to add your name to the illustrious list of superstars too.


Stop by today to take a tour of the facility and meet our Master Instructors. We can't wait to train with you and help your family get stronger, together!


Mr. Jonathan Peschke is a Master Instructor, is ranked as a 6th Degree Black Belt, and has been teaching for over 23 years.


Ms. Taren Ogata is a Master Instructor, is ranked a 6th Degree Black Belt, and has been teaching for over 15 years.
