June 2016



Keep your children ACTIVE this summer. When we are physically active, it allows our bodies to do what we want and need for it to do. Consistent exercise and physical activity help us to build strong muscles and bones, decrease risk of developing health issues such as Type 2 diabetes, help us with weight control, and improve our mental well-being. Studies consistently prove that physical ability builds self-esteem and confidence at every age!

What is Stockton Kuk Sool Hapkido doing with this knowledge? We are committed to helping you and your family reach your physical goals! We are offering a SUMMER SPECIAL… Now through June 30, 2016, tuition is 25% off! Your children will get fit, make new friends, and have lots of FUN!

April 2016

April proves to be a very special month due to National Public Health Week (first full week of April) and Every Kid Healthy Week (last full week of April). This translates to April as the month to bring awareness about the importance of your health! Physical fitness plays a central role in your overall health. The reality is that we all understand what it takes to be healthy, yet we do not always rise to the challenge of doing what is necessary in order to achieve and maintain great health.

Our martial arts school can help you and your family reach your health goals and stay in top shape! We offer a wide range of programs for students of all ages. Students in our adult program will attest that the mixture of martial arts training has improved their total-body strength and enhance their cardiovascular health. Our boxing class involves body conditioning, allowing you to obtain high level of athletic prowess.

Tips To Keep Your New Year’s Resolution


It’s a brand new year and everyone everywhere is setting up resolutions for themselves. Most of which are resolutions involving healthier lifestyles. We are going to promise ourselves that we are going to lose weight, or exercise more, or eat better, and actually make use of that gym membership. One of the reasons why these resolutions are so familiar is because we often fail and renew them for the next year. Awareness about obesity, GMOs, and gluten have helped our country become more health conscious and sparked the desire to live healthier and more fulfilling lifestyles. This doesn’t change, however, the fact that these types of changes can be difficult to maintain and the stressors of daily life can leave us in the endless loop of resolution and failure. Well I say don’t be discouraged. It is better to plan on making changes and failing at them than it is not making plans at all. Here are some tips that may help you meet your goals.

Focus on How You Feel Rather Than How You Look

If you are starting your year focused on how unhappy you are with your appearance, then you’re starting your year out negatively. We tend to forget that losing weight is a slow process, and hard work for slow results can be discouraging. Instead focus on the feeling you get when your complete your workout which will give you an immediate feeling of accomplishment. Don’t finish all your workouts reminding yourself that you are not happy with your appearance.

Be Specific About Your Goals and Keep the Plan Realistic

Being vague leaves you too much room to deviate from the plan. Rather than tell yourself that you are going to exercise more and lose weight, plan to workout 3 hours a week and lose 10 lbs. after a month period and work up to 5 hours a week once you have met your weight loss goal and maintain that routine for the entire year. Also, plan your workout ahead of time. What exercises are you doing today? How many sets? How many reps for each set?

It is also important to be realistic about your goals. If you work 40 hours a week and have two kids, you probably should not plan to go to the gym five days a week for two hours a day. It’s okay to start working out once a week and add more hours once you feel that time permits.

Make It a Social Event

You have to enjoy what you do in order for it to be a sustainable activity. Workout with friends or join a group exercise program. Martial arts, for example, offers an opportunity to learn something new and interesting while interacting with people. Fitness programs can be challenging and difficult, so it makes sense to choose one that also provides a support group. Training in a group can help keep energy and enthusiasm high and make the workout more enjoyable.

Reward Yourself

This is a very important step that many people overlook, and when you are writing down your plan (you had better be writing down your plan) make sure you also write down how you will reward yourself once you have met your goal. If you have successfully changed and maintained your diet for a three month period, then you have earned yourself dinner and cocktails with friends. If you have gone an entire year without deviating from you workout routine, then you should buy those new golf clubs or the new handbag that you have been wanting. Being healthy is positive, and the end result should be a positive experience.

Take the Kuk Sool Challenge

Stockton Kuk Sool Hapkido is issuing a challenge for all new sign ups in the month of January 2016. Sign up between now and the end of the month and set a goal to lose 20 pounds in a three month period. If you meet your goal by the end of March, Stockton Kuk Sool will give you $100!! So invest in yourself this New Year and start making that positive change that you have been planning.
