Good for the body, Great for the Mind: Martial Arts by Martial Hartamas

Learning martial arts is more than just an activity or act of self-defense. At Martial Hartamas Malaysia, they strive to teach child and adults alike to boost not only a physical confidence but also mental and emotion confidence.

The Martial Hartamas follows the teaching of The Choi Kwang Do Martial Arts International that focuses on power from techniques, rather than aggression.  The expat family, the Raffertys opened the dojo center at Desa Sri Hartamas in 2013, in collaboration with the Mont Kiara Community and the community police.
