Dedicated to Martial Arts Instruction for Over 40 Years!

In the quaint town of Troy, Michigan, a martial arts revolution unfolded in 1980 with the establishment of Kil’s Martial Arts (as seen in the pic on the left, later changed to Troy Martial Arts). Founded by the Kil family, a dedicated family of Taekwondo practitioner’s, with a vision for community empowerment, the school quickly became a cornerstone for martial arts enthusiasts in the region.

 

In 2003, the school would be purchased by Master Tammy Trudeau, and the school name was changed to Troy Martial Arts, a testament to the great town and families of the immediate area. Master Trudeau’s journey in Taekwondo began long before the inception of Troy Martial Arts. Trained in the traditional Korean martial art, she sought to share its profound benefits with her community. In 2003, with unwavering passion and a commitment to excellence, Master Trudeau opened the doors to Troy Martial Arts, marking the beginning of a legacy that would endure for decades.

Taekwondo, known for its dynamic kicks and emphasis on discipline, became the focal point of Troy Martial Arts’ curriculum. Master Trudeau, drawing upon her extensive training and expertise, crafted a program that not only imparted the physical techniques of Taekwondo but also instilled the values of respect, perseverance, and self-discipline.

Sparring, a dynamic aspect of Taekwondo, played a pivotal role at Troy Martial Arts. Under Master Trudeau’s guidance, sparring sessions became a platform for students to hone their skills, showcasing a blend of speed, precision, and strategic thinking. The emphasis on controlled yet intense sparring sessions contributed to the development of well-rounded martial artists within the Troy community.

As the 2000s unfolded, Troy Martial Arts flourished, drawing in students from all walks of life. The school’s impact extended beyond physical training, fostering a sense of camaraderie among its members. The tight-knit community formed at Troy Martial Arts became a testament to the school’s commitment to holistic development and the values embedded in the practice of Taekwondo.

Over the years, Troy Martial Arts became a fixture in the Michigan martial arts scene, producing skilled practitioners and community leaders. The school’s legacy endures, a testament to Master Trudeau’s vision and the enduring appeal of Taekwondo in the heart of Michigan. Troy Martial Arts remains a beacon for those seeking not just martial arts proficiency but also personal growth, community, and the indomitable spirit that characterizes the school’s rich history.
