Mind, Body, Spirit
We seek to develop the mind, body and spirit of each student through a practical, effective, and creative martial art system called Mo Duk Pai..
Each Student An Individual
Students progress at their own rate by mastering a catalog of basic techniques, enabling creativity and improvisation in a variety of situations, from competition to street to daily life.
One System, Many Locations
MDP schools are located in in NE, SE and SW Portland, OR, with classes in Mo Duk Pai, Crossfit, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Capoeira, Systema and more, for both kids and adults. Membership in a MDP school gives students the opportunity to train at other MDP affiliate schools, in many instances for free or discounted pricing. Check out a convenient location near you.
