About Us

Our History & Mission

Han Mi Martial Arts opened our first martial arts school in Damascus, MD in 2012, with the goal of using martial arts training to build strong bodies, sharp minds, and tenacious spirits. We brought this vision to Frederick starting October 2022.

 

We use innovative methods to teach internationally-accepted martial arts programs, and that means our students learn more and stay motivated for the long-term!

We are Gracie Certified Training Center®, teach Kukkiwon (World Taekwondo Federation) Taekwondo, and are a member of the Southeastern US Kendo Federation.

We Promise to:

- Teach you effective methods of self defense and sport

 

- Help you to use martial arts study to improve your physical health

- Help you find your passion and tenacity

- Guide you through your challenges to success

- See you through every step of your martial arts journey

"Master Thompson and all the leaders are caring mentors with a successful program. My son is naturally shy but as his skills improved so has his confidence in other areas. Highly recommended."
