Mudo Academy; Therapeutic Para-Martial Arts Program: Empowering Every Warrior’s Journey!

Welcome to Therapeutic Para-Martial Arts Program at Mudo Academy, a place where martial arts become a powerful vehicle for personal growth and empowerment.

This program is tailored for students with physical and learning disabilities and borderline disorders.  Our program offers a unique blend of Taekwondo, and Judo under the guidance of certified instructors specializing in para-taekwondo and first aid.


Inclusive Environment

Classes are thoughtfully divided based on age, accommodating elementary, secondary, and adult students, fostering an inclusive and supportive community.

Holistic Approach

Unlike traditional martial arts programs, we focus not just on the technicalities but on the transformative power of martial arts. Our emphasis is on understanding current abilities, setting realistic goals, and celebrating the countless micro-successes that lead to significant improvements in the quality of life for our students.

Personalized Success

We believe in the countless victories that our students can achieve in their everyday lives. By embracing small steps toward their goals, our warriors learn the true essence of martial arts – a journey of continuous improvement and self-discovery.

Healthy Fitness Routines

Our program extends beyond martial arts, incorporating healthy fitness routines designed to enhance physical well-being. From self-defence techniques to a variety of physical activities, we empower our students to embrace a holistic approach to fitness.


The Therapeutic Para-Martial Arts class at our academy is thoughtfully structured to create a supportive and inclusive learning environment.

Our class structure recognizes and respects the unique abilities and needs of each participant.

Beginning with a warm-up that focuses on mobility and flexibility exercises, we then move into skill-based training tailored to accommodate various physical and learning disabilities.

Instructors provide clear and personalized instructions, ensuring that every student feels comfortable and engaged.

The class incorporates a mix of martial arts techniques, adapted drills, and activities that foster social interaction and teamwork. Emphasis is placed not just on technical skills but also on building confidence, self-esteem, and a sense of accomplishment.

Our goal is to create a positive and empowering experience for every participant, fostering a love for martial arts and promoting holistic well-being.


Certified Instructors

Our dedicated instructors bring expertise in various martial arts, para-taekwondo, and first aid, ensuring a safe and supportive learning environment.

Personal Development Focus

We prioritize the individual journey of each student, fostering a sense of accomplishment, confidence, and resilience.

Inclusive Community
