BAD (Bad A** Dads) Taekwondo

BAD (Bad A** Dads) is our martial arts program for men who want to earn a Black Belt while training in a very unique and disciplined art form that includes Taekwondo, Mixed Martial Arts, and Fitness. BAD will help you develop speed, agility, strength, endurance, and flexibility. As you work to earn your Black Belt, you’ll become physically fit and learn how to defend yourself and your loved ones.

Under the guidance of 7th Degree Black Belt Master Amitis Pourarian, you’ll learn traditional Taekwondo poomsae, which incorporates defined patterns of defense-and-attack motions, stances, blocks, kicks, punches, and strikes, as well as practical self defense and the sport of Taekwondo.

The self defense component of our men’s martial arts classes includes stand-up, ground, in-close, and weapon defense (knife, gun and stick). Frequent guest instructors provide you with specialized training in these skills and others such as grappling, joint locks, and striking. The self defense training includes board breaking, the demonstration of power to cause an effect (equivalent to breaking bones).

The sport aspect of the program prepares you for fun, healthy competition with others of the same age and rank. Our safe environment is ideal for adults of any age who enjoy competing in any or all arenas including poomsae (forms), sparring, board breaking, weapons, or self defense.

When you make the decision to invest in yourself and carve out time just for you, please call us and we’ll schedule you in an adult taekwondo class that best meets your goals.

When you arrive for your first class you’ll be greeted by a knowledgeable team member who will answer your questions. We’ll provide a loaner uniform for your first class and introduce you to your instructor and the men you’ll be training with. There will be no hard sell. We want you training with us because you want to be here.

We pride ourselves on being a supportive environment focused on the common goal of self improvement. Our classes and students are friendly and welcoming, ensuring that new students will have an enjoyable, non-intimidating experience.

The BAD program was created by Master Amitis Pourarian, former US Team Member, who owns THE STUDIO Martial Arts & Fitness. THE STUDIO is a member of the United Taekwondo Association (UWTA). An approved Kukkiwon school, we teach Kukkiwon poomsae (forms). Visit our “What is Taekwondo?” page to learn more.

THE STUDIO offers private lessons for those looking to practice and fine-tune their martial arts skills and techniques or for those interested in approaching training a bit differently. The personal attention you’ll receive from our experienced instructors provides the perfect opportunity to effectively learn new material, foster ongoing development of technique and form, or study a specialized area of martial arts. Or perhaps your goal is to earn a national championship title. Private lessons with our highly-trained, accomplished instructors can help you reach the highest level of competition. Our instructors can also design a modified training program to accommodate an injury so you can keep progressing while you’re healing. Depending on your goals, we can also incorporate wellness or nutrition coaching as part of your personalized program. For more information about our private lessons, please call (916) 258-5425.

It has been 6 months since we visited THE STUDIO for our two boys’ first TaeKwonDo class at THE STUDIO. I had no intention of participating — this was just something my wife and I felt would be good for our sons (ages: 4 and 6). After Master P “suggested” I give it a try, I soon learned that I had just found something that I didn’t even know that I needed. I found that this art form, and Master Pourarian, had so much to offer and on so many different levels. Besides being such an incredible mental challenge getting into shape is a very cool side benefit to TKD. After just 4 weeks I found myself bouncing up our stairs for the first time in years! After 4 months I had lost 20 lbs, with huge core and leg strength improvement. One of my sons loves it so much he swears that he is sticking with it until he is a 9th degree black belt! Kudos to Master P and the entire STUDIO family for creating such a fun place to get in shape both physically and mentally. My family is staying right here!”

BAD is Mixed Martial Arts at its best. The heavy emphasis is on Tae Kwon Do, but it also incorporates a lot of the ground fighting arts of Jujitsu. We’ve trained in techniques I recognize from Judo and Hapkido as well. We continually have guest instructors from other disciplines come in to teach the class in their particular styles & techniques. We’ve even had a Martial Arts instructor from the US Marines come in to teach a class which was based on Middle Eastern disciplines. I’ve studied a variety of martial arts since the early seventies and from coast to coast and I can tell you, BAD is about as good as it gets!
