Hello, my name is Grand Master Jimmy Hogberg. I was born and raised in the Fort Hood area. I began my martial arts journey when I was 9 years old, and I have loved it ever since.

When I became a blackbelt, I started teaching other Taekwondo students, and that’s when I realized what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. I am a 7th Dan Grand Master Moo Duk Kwan Taekwondo, 6th Dan Combat Hapkido and Kukkiwon Certified, and a U.S.A. Martial Arts Hall of Fame Member. I am a member of the International Combat Hapkido Federation and the World Haidong Gumdo Federation. What all that means is that I have spent more than 30 years learning and perfecting martial arts and self defense training to pass along to my students.

For more than 20 years, I have proudly run Self Defense America in Copperas Cove and have been extremely blessed to have thousands of martial arts students who have gone on to continue their training around the world. Throughout the years, I have had the pleasure of training children who were considered “at risk,” autistic, and who have ADD, ADHD, and they have all become winners. It’s the source of pride that they have a great school to train at.

I am so proud of my students and their parents as they continue to search out community events to be involved in. We continue to show off our talents throughout the many different festivals and parades. Learning to defend yourself will only be the start of a lifelong journey. You will experience a level of self confidence and empowerment that you have never known.
