We teach the TAI CHUAN DO style of martial arts founded by Grand Master Ken Champ in 1977. The style incorporates various traditional arts, including SHORIN-RYU, KARATE, AKIDO, and JUJITSU. Although the art is very challenging, we encourage anyone from 6 years of age through adult to participate. It is an excellent ministry for families to do together. We incorporate both physical and spiritual discipline as we study God’s Word and master our art. The classes are held in Educational Building #3
Tuesdays Traditional Class (for those who desire more disciplined experience) from 6:00pm – 8:00pm
Thursdays Regular Class from 6:00pm – 8:00pm
Saturdays Advanced Class (green belts and higher ranks) from 8:00am – 9:00am
Saturdays Regular Class from 9:00am – 11:00am.

Shyshuu Ralph Batykefer (5th degree black belt), Sensei Kevin Cox (2nd degree black belt); Sensei Mike Schepers (2nd degree black belt); Sensei Eric Gale (2nd degree black belt); and other qualified black belt instructors lead this ministry. The ministry objectives are:

- To improve self-discipline, moral character, and humility.
- To defend without hate or anger and without ego.
