About Penn Mar Martial Arts, the Premier Hapkido Self Defense Schools
in Littlestown, Hanover, Taneytown & Gettysburg

At Penn Mar Martial Arts you will learn Hapkido. We are dedicated to providing our members with elite martial arts instruction. We are also committed to helping you develop the attitudes and behaviors required to reach BLACK BELT EXCELLENCE - in all areas of life. Our goal is for all our students to become focused, self-disciplined and confident individuals who have the utmost respect for themselves and others.

With well over 100 years of collective teaching experience in the ancient art of Hapkido, our instructors provide a well-rounded course of instruction in traditional martial arts with a focus on improving the overall being rather than teaching someone "how to fight." In truth we teach our students "how not to fight." Our course of study includes stretching exercises, a proven aid in long-term health maintenance, self-defense - including kicking, punching, joint locks, pressure points, grappling, and more.

What does this all mean to you?

Our training is perfect for men, women and children starting as young as four, years old up to adults who are well into their 60's. Over the years my students have come to me and told me "it is not just a martial art school - it is a life skill institute." What they like most about us is we blend the traditions, history and physical lessons of the past with modern concepts and principles of the future. We are a Family Martial Art Center - where the past meets the present to give our students life skills unmatched anywhere else in our area.
