Master John K. Thomas has been practicing and teaching martial arts since early 1980s. With extensive knowledge and skills in five different martial arts disciplines – Hap-Ki-Do, Aikido, Aiki-Jujitsu, Judo & Tae-Kwon-Do, developed the mixed martial arts program taught and trained at United States Karate Center (USKC). Designed with the core principles of CONTROL, HONOR & DISCIPLINE, the program build the confidence, skills and strength to protect from an attacker both physically and psychologically.
The program is structured by fusing techniques and drills from the five disciplines which makes the practice unique and more effective in real-life scenarios. The curriculum not only focuses on self-defense, but also on the holistic approach of wellness and self discipline for adults and children alike. Master Thomas personally teaches classes for both adults and children at the USKC Dojo located in Reston, VA.
