HIMA Foundation

While the framework for the HIMA Foundation relies on several different individual components, it is the collective whole that is critical to HIMA's success.  

This foundation serves to create an atmosphere of excellence for staff and students. 

Expectations are high! 

You can accomplish nearly anything if you set your mind to it and work hard to achieve it.

HIMA’s expectations are based on its vision, mission, purpose, ethics, core values, methodology, and goals, which combine to form the Hebb Institute of Martial Arts Foundation.


Given our Magda Institute Association affiliation and our founder's experiences, our vision is to be the four-state region’s authority on Jeet Kune Do, Kali, Muay Thai, Pentjak Silat and Wing Chun Gung Fu.


Our mission is two-fold.

First, it is to transform the lives of our students by optimally maximizing their potential through martial arts and personal development training.

Second, it is to be a torch bearer for the next generation. In other words, we want to do our part to keep the arts of Jeet Kune Do, Kali, Muay Thai, Pentjak Silat and Wing Chun Gung Fu alive.

This will serve to perpetuate the arts and all of their teachings for future generations.

This is very important to us because we truly believe these arts are cultural treasures.


Our purpose is to deliver systems-based, real-world proven, results-focused martial arts and personal growth and development solutions that truly educate and motivate.


The HIMA Foundation is held together by ensuring that everything we do is focused on:

  • remaining true to ourselves, our students and our arts,

  • remaining true to our vision, mission, purpose, core values and goals,

  • remaining true to the Magda Institute, Inc., the Magda Institute Association, our teachers and our seniors in the arts, and

  • using methods that we truly believe are effective in producing results
