Looking for workout routine you can stick to?

It’s easy to let a fitness routine fall by the wayside, especially when you don’t have someone there to keep you accountable and motivated.

Even more so, working out on your own can get boring or even repetitive further slowing down your progress before you eventually end up back at square one.

Looking for an Exciting Sport or Physical Activity for your Child?

We get it, finding a fun physical activity for your child can be hard.

We hear from parents saying they’ve tried every other sport for their child with them eventually getting bored or uninterested.

Martial Arts is Different than any other workout or sport.

The unique benefits of martial arts includes:

💪🏼 Improved physical fitness:

Make no mistake. Martial arts is a great workout! It is a total body workout — your stamina, muscle tone, flexibility, balance and strength will all show signs of improvement.

💬 Increased social skills:

Martial arts strongly emphasize self discipline and self control as a core component of its teachings. Self leadership and the ability to deal with others in a mature way is the result.

🧠 Increased focus and concentration:

From the very first day of class, students are challenged to think as much as they act. Learning the forms and movements reinforces working memory. That’s why the Mayo Clinic specifically counts the martial arts of karate and taekwondo among the effective therapies for ADD and ADHD.

👍🏼 Enhanced self-esteem:

By learning these skills and improving your physical condition, you become more comfortable in all situations — whether you’re in danger or simply doing a task that takes you beyond your comfort zone. Kids have a new sense of self confidence, making them virtually “bully proof.”

🥋 Respect for values:

Honesty, courtesy, integrity, perseverance and excellence are some curriculum areas of focus. These qualities help both children and adults become great leaders.

🤜🏼 Stress relief:

Kicking, punching and screaming are a great release, no matter what your age.
