A great way to get in shape: Our martial arts classes have always provided a “total body workout” . The physical techniques and training methods provide strength and toning benefits and create a challenging cardiovascular workout.  It’s “go at your own pace” so you can build into the program.   You’ll see positive changes from the very start. Weight will come off, range of motion will increase and you will feel a greater sense of ease when you move.  You will look and feel more powerful.

A fun atmosphere and experience: We believe that if people are having fun they learn much faster and will stick with it longer. We have moved away from the formal environment of the traditional school while maintaining a culture of discipline andrespect. Laughter and humor is used frequently and encouraged. You will never feel out of place. Our students appreciate the casual attire and friendly atmosphere of our school.

Stress Relief: The stress relieving benefits of exercise have been widely accepted. When you add the act of striking something to the amazing skills you will learn here you will see that our version of stress relief is truly effective.   It is like a mini-vacation two to three times a week… troubles and worries seem a million miles away.
