"I can't say enough about Grand Master Lee and the other instructors! Highly recommended!" -Lisa W. Cooksey
WHAT MAKES SPARTAN MIXED MARTIAL ARTS SO DIFFERENT?
Our story begins with Grand Master Jun Lee when he first opened the school in 1999. Over the past seventeen years, 5,000+ students have gone through our school. We are a martial arts school that specializes in teaching self-discipline, self-control, and self-defense. We strongly believe that martial arts should strengthen both the body and character.
Our Taekwondo program maintains a membership through the World Taekwondo Federation and Kukkiwon. Our school has won multiple national and state level titles. We are the ONLY martial arts school that is nationally ranked in Taekwondo demonstration in all of MD, DC, DE, and PA.
Our Muay Thai Kickboxing program is led by Master Bao. He was formerly the head Muay Thai and Children's MMA instructor at Pentagon MMA in Arlington, VA. Originally trained in Taekwondo under Grand Master Lee, Master Bao returned to our school with a ton of experience and titles. Among his many accomplishments, he is a two-time TCB Muay Thai Kickboxing champion.
Our Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu program is led by Professor Vicente Junior. A 4th Degree De La Riva Black Belt in BJJ and a world champion, he is one of the most decorated and highest ranked fighters in his class. Our school maintains an affiliate membership with the Vicente Junior Jiu-Jitsu Team.
As martial arts has grown in popularity over the years, the industry has become highly commercialized and profit-driven at the expense of a genuine experience. We are NOT a franchise or a "cookie-cutter" school. We are NOT a "belt factory." You can expect a great level of flexibility and a highly personalized experience to meet your needs.
