We're building tomorrow's leaders, one Black Belt at a time

The Hastings Academy of Martial Arts is a taekwondo academy focused on bringing out the best in each and every student. Our academy is a family-based martial arts school with a mission of providing martial arts training to children and adults in a safe, fun, yet challenging environment. The focus of our academy is the development of excellence, self-confidence, leadership, and discipline in every student.


Our instructors are trained using a curriculum developed by the American Taekwondo Association (ATA) which integrates martial arts with life skills. This curriculum provides a smooth transition to each rank for each student. Many students start training without knowing how to perform a simple block, but quickly learn to do complex moves including jump kicks and spins with ease.





Classes are structured to allow families to train together while helping all students to get the most out of each class. As students advance in rank, they move into more challenging classes which helps bring out the best in each student as they work to achieve their goals.


We are the only destination for students of all ages living in Hastings, Prescott, and Cottage Grove who are interested in karate, taekwondo, martial arts, or fitness and who want to improve their lives dramatically.
