Punching Bag


We teach a style of martial art called Kajukenbo Tum Pai. The techniques that students learn have helped some achieve regional, national, and even world champion status. Even though the techniques and lessons learned with our program can be used in competition, our training is not based on the tournament floor. We teach life lessons within a relevant, street-applicable art of self-defense. Our program is constantly updating to fit the ever-changing world around us.


Hood's Martial Arts Academy is the premier martial arts program in Salem, Oregon, dedicated to helping our students achieve personal excellence. Our Kajukenbo Tum Pai program is designed to teach students to strengthen their weaknesses and realize their personal strengths through self-defense training. 

Everyone trains for his or her own reasons, and those reasons often change as the student progresses. At Hood's Martial Arts Academy, the individual student's needs and interests are taken into account when material is being taught. Our system adapts to the student's body and mentality.

People of all ages and from every walk of life can benefit from our program. With us, the student can go at his or her own pace. With us, there are no long term contracts. Once you start your journey to personal excellence with Hood's Martial Arts Academy, we know you will continue.
