"Building leaders, one black belt at a time"

Our work


Hye Katch Do is a self-defense concept, created by Shihan Mihran Aghvinian, driven from his practical experiences,  with an inspiration  from legendary Armenian fighters.  The words "Hye Katch Do" translate to “The Way of the Armenian Hero”: One who has a vigorous physique,  confidence, compassion and generous spirit.


Hye Katch Do Martial Arts Academy has a foundation, supportive both for students and parents.  We understand today's  issues facing our youth; peer pressure, bullying, drugs, alcohol, depression, and much more. These issues can  destroy one's future and leave families in distress. Through our classes and seminars, we create a safe  platform for students to talk, listen, discuss and learn how to deal with issues. At Hye Katch Do we believe by giving the individual attention to our students and working side by side with parents, we can overcome any obstacle and help our youth gear towards a healthy and brighter future.

"Obsticles don't have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it."
