Rising Phoenix has differentiated itself in the Oakland, Franklin Lakes, Wayne, Wyckoff, Ringwood, and Wanaque communities by it's unique approach to adults and fitness by training in Taekwondo.
We have combined modern fitness principles alongside the traditional training techniques and culture of Taekwondo while focusing on the real-world importance of martial arts training. Many schools, here in Oakland and around the country, will focus on the self-defense, 'stop an attacker', and 'protect yourself' aspects of martial arts training. This of course, is an important element to any serious effort at learning the martial arts.
However, the aspect to any quality adult program that is most important, is the idea that we should be constantly evolving and growing as individuals, not just as martial arts technicians. Taekwondo is a tool, no different than a hammer, which is used to strike a nail into a board to build something. Taekwondo is used to strike at the current shape of who we are and build strength and develop spirit.
All people have the opportunity to re-mold their lives. To look at life with a different set of eyes. To gain the skills necessary to achieve their next level goals. At Rising Phoenix, our instructors join you on this journey of re-birth and we will help you to achieve things you never thought possible.
