Simply stated, if you want real, no-nonsense, authentic, Taekwondo instruction this is the place to be.
Hoijeon Moosool applies scientific principles and practical understandings to overwhelm an opponent expending minimal energy whilst maximizing efficiency. Based on the art of Hapkido, Hoijeon Moosool is a modern take on classical methods for self-defense emphasizing practicality and effectiveness.

Today, the NATA continues the decades long tradition of producing some of the greatest martial artists in southeast Michigan, all from the heart of Ypsilanti.
