Quest Martial Arts (formerly Mike Bogdanski's Martial Arts Center) has been transforming lives through the teaching of traditional martial arts. We are Northeast Connecticut's only full time Martial Arts School, and we maintain the highest standards for our students and instructors. Our students learn traditional Tang Soo Do, as well as modern self defense techniques.
First and foremost, we require our students to be people of character acting with courage, integrity, respect, self-discipline and indomitable spirit. Our philosophy is to train the mind and body of each of our students, helping them navigate life's challenges as well as pushing them to reach their potential.
This site serves to educate prospective students, as well as to augment the training of current ones. We offer programs for children ages 4 and up, including separate classes for teens, and for adults. Please feel free to explore our site, visit us in person, or contact us with any questions.
