Thank you for visiting Mike Neil Traditional Martial Arts Association, the home of Professional Martial Artists united in a common goal: to enrich the community through the Martial Arts - One student at a time.
Mike Neil Martial Arts teaches a powerful system consisting of defenses and attacks utilizing the entire body. The blocks and strikes are designed to be directed and focused so as to maximize power upon impact. A fundamental knowledge of anatomy enables the practitioner to apply techniques that achieve the greatest effect under all circumstances. Our foundational Martial art is Tang Soo Do - enhanced by the practical self defense of various grappling and striking arts.

We develop our internal abilities so that we are self confident and therefore less likely to be chosen as victims by those who prey on the weak.
At Mike Neil Traditional Martial Arts we do not believe in a one-size-fits-all philosophy. Students learn a balance of the martial arts systems designed and tuned to meet their specific needs and objectives, and best suited for their strengths and limitations. Our foundational art of Tang Soo Do was developed in China by a Korean Master - and was heavily influenced by the Japanese Martial Arts. The Grandmaster (now deceased) combined the best of his training into this blended system.
