  • What is Kuk Sool Hapkido?

    Kuk sool Hapkido is a Korean martial art that originated in the Korean royal court during the Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910). It is a comprehensive martial art that incorporates a wide range of techniques, including punches, kicks, strikes, joint locks, pressure point attacks, traditional forms and throwing techniques. One of the key principles of kuk sool is the use of circular and flowing/fluid movements, which allows practitioners to redirect an attacker's energy and momentum, using it against them. Kuk sool also emphasizes the use of fluid and graceful movements, as well as mental focus and control. In addition to its focus on practical self-defense techniques, kuk sool also ....

    Another tournament in the books!! GGM Lloyd Craft’s Annual Northern CA Martial Arts Championships hosted by Mighty Crane Kenpo Karate. The G-Elite Tournament Team did extremely well. Almost all of our members placed and we even had two go into the grand championships! I am so proud of these guys facing their fears and going into the ring to test their abilities. I am extremely proud of our yellow belts who ended up taking 1st 2nd and 3rd place. I can't wait for more to come and to continue to watch everyone grow and surpass their limitations. ....

  • Is Sparring Important?

    A common question we receive is: Is sparring important/necessary to martial arts training? YES! And here are a few reasons why: 1. Skill Development: Sparring allows practitioners to apply the techniques and skills they have learned in a realistic and dynamic setting. It helps them understand how to effectively use their techniques, adapt to different situations, and make quick decisions under pressure. Through regular sparring, martial artists can refine their techniques and improve their overall skill set. If you can't do a technique while stressed and under pressure, you do NOTknow that technique. 2. Self-Defense Preparation: Sparring provides valuable experience in dealing with ....

  • Joe's 2nd Annual Tournament

    Joe's 2nd Annual Tournament

    Another one in the books! So proud of our G-Elite Sparring Team. We brought 8 competitors to spar Joe's 2nd Revolution Battle at Brookfield Elementary and received 2 gold medals! Many of our competitors were first timers and received honorary medals. I am so proud of them as it's difficult enough to even enter a ring, but to receive recognition for their hard work is always so fulfilling. I love what competing provides as its the most realistic approach in applying self defense in real time and showing others that every single one of those reps counted for something. It also provides the best simulation in how deep of an understanding of their techniques and how much knowledge you have ....

  • G-Elite Attends the WKF 2023 Summit!

    G-Elite Attends the WKF 2023 Summit!

    G-Elite Martial Arts had the privilege of being invited to attend the World Kido Federation's 2023 biannual summit. It was an incredible honor to be invited by the Grandmaster Seo family and the opportunity to be reunited with old mentors and friends was one that couldn't be missed. The nostalgia of training and being surrounded by lifelong martial artists was something that had been missed throughout the years. The meetings and training sessions were impressive as it was clear that everyone in attendance had one goal in mind; to preserve and continue the authenticity of martial arts and kapkido. The WKF goes beyond traditional martial arts to have relatable and impactful lessons, ....

  • Elite Sports

    After a week of wearing Elite Sports ultra light BJJ martial arts uniform, I can say that using a grappling uniform for traditional martial arts training has several pros and cons. The pro side is the uniform feels extremely durable and made of quality materials. Putting it on made me feel like i was training with a weighted top as the material is much thicker. Kinda felt like i was in my training arc in an anime. I also really really enjoyed the pants. They feel as if they're snug, however once you start moving there's definitely enough space to allow fluid movements. I had several students try them and we all enjoyed the tapered cut and feel, unlike our current uniform pants; students ....

  • Why do we have testing in Martial Arts?

    Why do we have testing in Martial Arts?

    We just had another successful testing ceremony and one of the students asked, "If testing is just seeing if we know things that we learned in class, why do we have a special day for it and why is it so hard?" And I thought that it was an insightful question that many others may have. Especially those who do not actively participate in testing for advancement. Simply put, everyday is testing. Every class, every lesson, every technique, every day we wake up; we are being tested, and overcoming these tests is one of the best ways to recognize your knowledge especially after a difficult and stressful session. Everyone looks skilled/knowledgable when they are calm and collected, but in ....

    We're #1?!

    https://distinguishedteaching.com/report/mixed-martial-arts-classes/near_elk-grove-sacramento-county,ca/ To our surprise, Distinguished Teaching has voted us #1 MMA Gym in Elk Grove, CA out of 258 schools in Sacramento!! We are truly humbled and honored to receive their praise and vote. I have reached out to state we are more of a traditional martial arts school, however haven't heard back from them. I did notice that others were also traditional martial arts school and not exactly MMA gyms. Maybe that's going to be the new age term for all martial arts? I hope to live up to this rank for years to come. Thank you again Distinguished Teaching and everyone who supports G-Elite Martial ....

  • What's the difference?

    What's the difference?

    I often get asked, "how are my karate classes?" and I have to explain we don't teach karate classes, we have kuk sool hapkido classes and have to go into explaining karate is a specific type of martial arts and not the genre or general term for them. They will usually follow up listing any style they have heard of, "oh so it's taekwondo kung fu or is it brazilian jiu-jitsu?" So, I thought it would be an interesting blog topic to address: what martial arts is as a whole to me and their differences. Marital arts is a general term to a system of self defense, which can be further broken down into the categories such as sports, traditional, exercise, and even spiritual or healing. The art ....

    Guest Instructor Brandon

    We had a special guest instructor!! Brandon Reynolds, a 2nd degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do. Sir Brandon is a well versed martial artist and has experience in: tricking, Capoeira, and kick boxing. I met sir Brandon years ago at a tricking class and we've kept supporting each other through social media in advancing in our training. Sir Brandon was able to share some tricking and TKD knowledge as well as learn some of our G-Elite curriculum. Both children and the adult martial artist admired his kind and thoughtful instruction as well as welcomed him as if he had always been here. I hope to have sir Brandon and many other martial arts experts come to expand our knowledge, experience, and ....
