SUPER IMPORTANT UPDATE!!
As of 11/6: We've moved back to online only classes. This is in part to the change in daylight and cooler weather. We will continue our live Zoom classes and in-person classes in Burgess Park both of which include On-Demand videos through Google Classroom. All new students will get a live 1-on-1 Zoom intro lesson along with the videos, during the 6 week trial.

Martial Arts Changes Lives
Every single day - in every single way!
We use martial arts as to build character. Each and every class is punctuated by our Powerful Words Character Development System to help provide kids with an unfair advantage in life!
Our classes help kids to learn how to successfully work together. We believe that T.E.A.M. stands for Together Everybody Achieves More!
Builds a More Well Rounded Kid!
Our programming helps our members with all aspects of life. They become more physically fit, more socially adept and more emotionally secure as they build their self-esteem in each and every class.
We've got something for EVERYBODY!
World class programming for boys and girls!
Age-specific martial arts training for the average preschooler. This program was designed to target age-specific skills for children between the ages of 3.5 and 5-years old. This program was designed to introduce early skills training to the pre-school age group, which has limited physical, intellectual, social, and emotional abilities. With that said, more emphasis is placed on building early fundamental skills training with a strategic balance of Martial Arts.
Developing a love of exercise and healthy habits early on will set your kids up for success throughout their life, but martial arts classes teach kids so much more than just self-defense and physical fitness. The process of moving from rank to rank teaches children about setting goals that are specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, and time-bound. They develop resilience as they practice skills that may seem difficult at first bet get easier over time. They develop respect, empathy, and patience as they work with others and recognize that those who went first will always reach back and help those who come later.
Martial arts programs often put kids together without taking into consideration the different stages of childhood development. The result is classes that are too difficult for younger kids and not exciting enough for older kids. That's why our classes are split by age to make sure that the material is presented in a way that is appropriately challenging for every student. Whether they're in elementary or middle school your kids will have fun while learning at a pace that keeps them excited about coming back to class week after week and working toward their goal of Black Belt and beyond.
High school is a challenging time for parents and teens alike. They constantly insist that you treat them like adults, but then forget to act like the adults they are trying to become. Honestly, they are doing their best, but it can be so frustrating - on both sides. Wouldn't it be nice if there were someplace where they could learn the hard lessons about personal responsibility before the consequences of their mistakes were life-changing?
Martial arts classes can help provide such an arena - like a testing ground for real life. Many of our high school students are responsible for managing their own schedules, balancing their homework and practice time, and making sure that they qualify for testing on a consistent basis. It's an opportunity for parents to let their kids figure out how to sink or swim without having to worry that the mistakes will be so big that they can't recover. While they're mastering simple life skills, they are also staying in shape, making new friends, developing great workout habits, and setting and achieving goals along the way. And college counselors love to see black belt training on applications because it shows a student's ability to set and stick to a long term goal.
Most adults come to a martial arts class because they're looking for a new and interesting way to get into shape, lose weight, and/or manage stress. Our classes do all that and they also do something that most people don't think about: protect your brain health.
More and more research is pointing out that adults need to do more to keep their brains fit as they age. With our smart phones doing all the remembering for us, many adults don't have much opportunity to strengthen their memory; and after a certain age, many people stop finding opportunities to learn new things. Exercise itself is a great way to keep your brain in shape, but studying and memorizing new information is an important key to long term brain health. Martial arts training gives you both in a fun, supportive atmosphere. Why just train your body when you can also train your brain?
Fun and fitness for the whole family! Turn your family time into a workout that everyone will enjoy. It can be difficult to find activities that your entire family will enjoy, especially if your kids aren’t close to the same age. Family martial arts classes are designed to be suitable for all ages and abilities.
A lot of parents struggle to find family-friendly activities to do with their children. Try something new with your family!
There aren’t many workouts that can be shared by adults and children. Cheering from the sidelines isn’t the same as doing something together.
Family martial arts classes offer families a way to spend quality time together and get their exercise, too. Everyone in the family learns at an appropriate level, but you’ll be learning the same basic skills. That means you can cheer one another on while also burning calories, relieving stress, and learning valuable lessons that apply to all areas of life.
A summer experience they’ll carry with them all year long! Our summer camp provides fun and learning for kids of all ages. Summer vacation is a time when parents need to find activities for their kids. This year, why not try our summer camp? Your kids will learn from expert instructors while having fun and making new friends. In other words, it’s the ideal summer experience!
Kids want to have fun and not worry about school, and you want them not to waste their time playing video games. You want your kids to be active, and you also want to make sure they’re in a safe and well-supervised place so you can work and do whatever else you need to do. It can feel impossible to find a program that meets your criteria and will keep your kids happy – and that’s where we come in.
Our summer camp is tailor-made to be fun, educational, and social. Parents love it – and kids do, too. For more info, please visit our webpage!
Due to the current pandemic and the restrictions laid out by the County Health Department, we will not be hosting Summer Camps this year. We will regroup and come back better than ever next Summer!
