State Championships in Hartland Michigan produce 20 State Champions from same school: Troy Martial Arts
Saturday was quite a day for Troy Martial Arts of Troy Michigan. Of the 31 kids and adults it took to the State of Michigan Martial Arts Championships, 20 took 1st place, and 25 qualified for the National Championships in Dallas, Texas next June. Master Tammy Trudeau, owner and master instructor for Troy Martial Arts, was very proud of all the participants. "Our top students work all year long for this day, and put everything they have into it. To see 20 of them champions, and 25 qualify for the trip to Nationals, is mind-boggling, but believable". Trudeau's school boasts over 200 students, from beginner to the most advanced level. After over 10 years, and many expansions and redesigns, the center at Crooks Road and South Blvd is often filled with eager students, learning everything from discipline to proper techniques in Tae Kwon Do, Cardio Kickboxing, Self-Defense, and Bully Defense.

Troy Martial Arts 2013 Annual Tournament Big Success!
The TMA Annual Tournament was a great success, with over 80% of the dojang participating. All participants did two events (Forms and Breaking), and of those another 28 also competed in the sparring competition. The "Breaking" Grand Champion was Mike Brusoe (Adult). The "Forms" Grand Champions were Adrian Janarthanan (10U), Sana Mirza (age 11-15), and Nelson La (Adult). The "Sparring" Grand Champions were Johnathon Carmichael (10U) and Nelson La (Adult).
All participants recieved some cool Bobbleheads (breaking), and large trophies (forms and sparring). Grand Champions got their 5-foot tall monster trophies, which we are sure will make for great memories and conversation pieces for years to come. Master Tammy Trudeau was very pleased and excited with all the competitors, and thrilled to see all of the students tae kwon do, breaking, self-defense, and sparring skills put to practical use.
Thanks to everyone who volunteered by setting up, organizing, judging, selling pizza, etc etc etc! Without everyones help, we could not have had the success we did. :-)
There are only two
Tae Kwon Do
For the third year, Troy Martial Arts presented the halftime show at the Palace of Auburn Hills, Michigan during the Detroit Pistons vs Charlotte Bobcats game. This years performance was titled "Ninja", and even included Hooper (Pistons Mascot) in a full Ninja uniform! Practice was a blast on Monday, and the main event Wednesday night was a blast! Students (kids and adults) showed off their Ninja skills, including Forms, Sparring, Breaking, an Numchucks. World Record holder Kevin Taylor even crushed some garbage cans, and broke 15 bricks! Click here to see the video and photo's!
Choreographed by the Detroit Pistons and Master Tammy Trudeau, the fans loved it, and the performance was a huge success. We are already looking forward to the 2014 show!
The World Committee only considers these two sports as Martial Arts, as they are the only ones recognized as being historical, organized, and defined as a "standard" througout the world. The other types of martial arts (such as Jujitsu, MMA, Hapkido, Karate, etc) are not standardized or traceable to a common world governing body.
The Michigan Taekwondo Federation (Michigan's Federation reporting to the USAT Federation and the Kukkiwon) held their Annual Referee Seminar today, and Troy Martial Arts was represented by many of our lead instructors. The 8 hour seminar included hands-on training, critiquing by the world's best referee's, and exams to test the effectiveness of the training. Included in the picture on the left: Mark Jeffery, Nelson La, Rudy Longo, and Ioana Grosu.
