Do Everything Better!

At Trusted Guard Martial Arts, we are a school passionate about mentoring students of all ages in physical training, mental development and spiritual growth. No matter what your starting level, your age, or family needs - we are dedicated to helping each of our students in their pursuit to "Do Everything Better".

Athletes and families train together. We specialize in Traditional Tae Kwon Do; Jhoon Rhee Tae Kwon Do and Hwa Yu Won Hap Ki Do. We truly are a martial arts family. When you start training, we encourage you to take what you learn home with you. Increased self-discipline, better focus, and being able to handle stress easier are skills you'll learn with us, but, can take into your everyday life.

Also, don't let the traditional names of our styles intimidate you! We love working with beginners and advanced athletes alike. You'll learn dynamic and traditional moves such as striking, defending against attacks, high flying kicks and so much more.

Your success is measured against what YOU can do. Not what your classmates can do. It really helps you to "Do Everything Better!" when you feel that boost in confidence from beating your personal best.

Unique Training for Your Modern Day Needs! We train in both traditional and modern martial arts for present day self defense, fitness and sports. We focus on character development and are so proud of our updated training programs.

Some of our most popular course offerings include:

  • Hyper Pro Training
  • Martial Artists Against Bullying
  • Traditional Taekwondo

All classes incorporate Character Development, Leadership Skills, Life Skills, Courtesy, Respect, Discipline, Structure, Fun, Fitness and Self Defense too! The basic conditioning used in our programs will get you in tip-top shape in no time as well. We have students that couldn't do a pushup when they started... now they do 30 in a row!

Flexible Scheduling Means you Get To Train When It's Right For YOU. Various programs and class times are available to meet the needs of our students. Trusted Guard has devoted itself to becoming an integral part of the Liberty Hill and surrounding communities. After al, we live here and are a part of this wonderful community too!

You can always expect to walk in to a pristine, clean and inviting atmosphere.

Our main goal at Trusted Guard Martial Arts is to empower individuals of all ages through positive training of the mind, body and soul. We invite you to come see us, try out our classes, and discover the positive impact martial arts can have on your life!
