I have been training at the Hwa Rang Do Minneapolis Academy for the past year and a half. For years I had been struggling to find a form of exercise that I could stick with, and of course, something that was fun. \r
I did not have previous martial art experience, but I continuously encountered the school and decided to give it a try. New experiences are always a little unnerving, but being one of a few females in a predominantly male sport is flat out frighting. As a woman, I learn and approach problems differently then the men in my classes. Fortuantely, here at the school, we have a large number of women training and the level solidarity and support among the Hwa Rang Do/Tae Soo Do women is unmatched. Encouragement does not end with the women, there is a true sense of family from the entire dojang. \r
You cannot fail, they will not let you. Over the last year, I have been challenged both mentally and physically and have \r
exceeded my own expectations. Training has changed my world view and approach to life. \r
Pros: Very detailed instruction. Level specific classes that help people learn.
