Celebrating 48 Years
Paik's Traditional Martial Arts Center

Welcome to the website for Paik's Traditional Martial Arts Center, a Madison Tradition since 1971.  We look forward to the chance to share with you our experiences and expertise in martial arts in the hopes that it will better you and your family for years to come.  Our taekwondo, karate, and kung fu classes are sure to challenge individuals of all ages and levels of experience, while the easy accessibility of our family classes, after school program, and summer camps will allow anyone the chance to work with our instructors and community at improving their confidence, discipline, and inner strength.

We can be reached via any of the contact methods at the bottom of the page to set up your first appointment: whether its a chance to try out a class for free or an evaluation with one of our lead instructors to determine if your young child is ready for our school.  We have students from all around the Madison area including Fitchburg, Middleton, Monona, Cross Plains, Sun Prairie, Stoughton, Verona, along with many more.  New students are beginning their journey with us every week, and we hope that you or a member of your family might be the next.  We look forward to meeting you soon!

Paik’s Martial Arts is proud of its heritage and pedigree.  Started in 1971 by Dr. Sang Kee Paik, Paik’s Traditional Martial Arts Center has gone through some changes but our goal remains the same as Dr. Paik’s over 45 years ago: to help guide every student down their own path in the martial arts.  See more about our origins here.
