About Our School

Discover the Life-Changing Meaning of Martial Arts

Hi and welcome!

I'm so glad you've taken an interest in Martial Arts to improve your life. I've dedicated my life to martial arts education and would be honored to tell you my story. Have you ever felt weak, lost, or like your life may be a bit out of control? If you've ever felt like a victim of circumstance or like you just knew in your bones there was a lot more out there for you....then you'll really get a lot out of my personal story.

You'll definitely relate to our students and instructors if you've ever wanted to belong to something bigger than yourself and get incredibly strong, confident, and respected.

When I was young and first saw real martial arts moves in action, I actually didn't know what I was even seeing! Mind. Blown. It was really "cool " like those flashy moves in the movies. Man, isn't that something to see when you're a kid?! I was instantly drawn to it.

As I trained and learned, I realized Martial Arts is actually a powerful tool for self-defense and fitness. I got in great shape, grew stronger, faster, and more capable of protecting myself and my loved ones. Then something amazing happened, something that changed my life forever. One day I realized that it wasn't just my body that changed.

Something else was happening through my training all along...

I was growing as a person, showing gratitude where I previously hadn't and becoming mentally tough. Without even realizing it, I'd almost become a completely different person. I was still "me"... but I was a "better" me.

The people closest to me in my life noticed this too. I was more caring, paid closer attention to the people around me. I was more focused, and able to work hard to achieve my goals.

Whew, and talk about a confidence boost! Where I felt weak before, I felt powerful now. Being able to deal with stress and show courage when faced with a challenge gave me the faith that I could handle any obstacle life threw my way.

This one trick got me huge amounts of respect!

It sounds odd but I also become more respectful...to myself. By treating myself well, I started to treat others well too and was able to show a level of respect we all deserve in life.

The True Meaning of Martial Arts came to me in a flash...balance! Might sound like something you've heard before but seriously...balance is key. Inner-balance: the connection of body, mind, and spirit, into one amazing force. It changed how others saw me and how I saw myself.

In an average gym setting it's typical to work on your body, in a yoga class you work on body and mind, in martial arts you work on all three dynamic forces of body, mind, and spirit to reignite passion in your life and make lasting change.

Tired of feeling burnt out and frazzled? By balancing physical health with the intense focus and concentration that comes with martial arts, our students often report feeling refreshed after their workout rather than drained. Some of the first time moms that come to class even report going home and cleaning the entire house after their first round on the mat! It's just that potent.

When you're training in our classes, on the surface it may seem like you're just having fun, getting a great workout, and learning challenging, exciting new techniques. But beneath that, we're also working on your connection to body, mind, and spirit, helping you become stronger on the inside, too.

Both kids and adults improve focus, feel more confident, and have a renewed passion for life!

Things just overall feel "better", and as a result, you and your children live a better life. That's what martial arts is all about, and that's why we're so passionate about bringing this wonderful gift to our community.
