About Choe's HapKiDo Academy of Duluth

My name is Cody Foor, head instructor of our martial arts school here in Duluth. For some time now, we've dedicated our lives to bringing the physical - and spiritual - benefits of martial arts to our community.

Through classes geared for men and women of all ages, shapes and sizes, our school itself has become a community of learning and growth. We'd love nothing more than for you to become a part of it. That way you too can enrich your life, learn self-defense, and get in great shape too.

After all, for thousands of years, martial arts has been a tool for inner-growth and development. The hard work and patience required to perfect each moves builds discipline, focus and determination. The desire to advance through the ranks develops goal setting and ambition. The rush of passing tests, and seeing how far you've come builds confidence and pride. And the increased energy that comes with getting in good physical shape gives you a boost to bring even more fulfilling activities into your life.

Helping you succeed in martial arts is the only goal of our Duluth program. Everyone here - each of our martial arts instructors - is passionate about helping you succeed, have fun, and enjoy the time you spend here. So come on by and try out the program that's best-suited for you. You can learn more about the classes our Duluth school offers, and call us to register for the one that's right for you.

See you soon,
Cody Foor
