Welcome to Lotus Blossom School of Martial Arts

Under the direction of Master Marshall Parnell, certified 5th dan Master in Taekwondo and 5th dan Master in Haidong Gumdo, we are one of Salt Lake City's leading martial arts schools. We are located in Murray, Utah, and we teach a comprehensive program of Korean martial arts.

Our curriculum is solely based on Korean martial arts. While many other martial arts from other styles and countries of origin exist, Korean martial arts are the most practiced in the world and we believe, for good reason. We have decided to blend a variety of Korean arts together to provide a broad based program that combines empty hand techniques with weapons.

We also teach with a heavy emphasis on traditional martial arts. Over time, many Korean martial arts schools have evolved to emphasize Olympic taekwondo training. While the pursuit of this style of training is noble, the emphasis shifts to become a focus on competitions, and cardiovascular fitness and the training becomes more martial sport and less martial art. The focus on this training comes at the expense of learning the traditions, and personal values that we believe are so central to martial arts.

Why We Think We are the Best Martial School In the Area

At Lotus Blossom School of Martial Arts we believe your path to personal growth is of the utmost importance in your training. Martial arts is so much more than moving your arms and legs. It is through the learning of these techniques that you learn fundamental aspects of character like:
  • Discipline
  • Respect
  • Integrity
  • Perseverance
  • Indomitable Spirit
We teach two of Koreas most successful traditional martial arts, Taekwondo - the empty hand art, and Haidong Gumdo, the Korean sword martial art. Through these arts, all aspects of martial arts can be learned. Through this approach, we have become one of the leading martial arts schools supporting the Salt Lake City communities of Murray, Dalton, Brockwood, Holladay, and Taylorsville.

But, most of all we have fun. Martial arts can be a serious business, but we work hard to make sure every student enjoys their training at our school. We have outings, and parties and travel for martial arts events. At LBSMA, you are more than just a student. You are a member of our family.
