McCann’s Martial Arts & Self Defense Academy Owner

Hi, I’m Master Brian McCann.

I KNOW HOW DIFFICULT AND CONFUSING
FINDING A MARTIAL ARTS SCHOOL CAN BE.

I remember when I was a child, feeling uncertainty about beginning martial arts. I wondered if I had what it took to succeed and I wasn’t the most athletic or confident child - quite the opposite. Little did I know that beginning my martial arts journey would be one of the most profound experiences of my life!

When I opened my school in 2005, I made a commitment to serving and empowering the community of Howell by teaching children and adults the confidence, leadership, and fitness skills that can only be achieved through martial arts.

WHAT IS HAPKIDO

Hapkido is the style of martial arts practiced by McCann’s Martial Arts & Self Defense Academy students.
The journey from White Belt to Black Belt is one of incremental learning and skill development, that students of any age and fitness level can embark on.

FUN, EXCITEMENT & PREPARATION: STUDENTS & PARENTS LOVE MARTIAL ARTS TOURNAMENTS!

One of the most fun parts of martial arts training is the ability to test your skills by competing in a tournament. Tournaments are not only fun for competitors, but they also become a great social experience for parents as well!

From sparring to forms to team demos, these awesome competitions are not only a place where our students can test their skills, but also a place where team spirit is built, fears are overcome, and character is developed. Most importantly, they are tons of fun!

One more reason you will love martial arts at McCann’s Martial Arts & Self Defense Academy!
