We Make Families Stronger

Through Martial Arts

Raising kids is hard.

How to get started

Schedule a Trial Class

Schedule a time to come in and take a free trial class so you know if our program is a good fit for your family.

Try Your 1st Class

When you come to your first class just wear some loose fitting clothing and bring the whole family. You might want to bring a camera also to share the experience!

Test for Your New Belt

After your first class we’ll register you for your first cycle of training so you’ll be all ready to test for an Orange Belt when it’s time.

Martial Arts is About Much More thAn Kicking & Punching

Though martial arts is an investment in time and resources it has paid off ten fold for our students who’s families have walked into our doors for the past 18 years and have worked to achieve their black belts and beyond. Most didn’t knowing a thing about the martial arts when they came in and have gone on to become leaders in their schools, state and district champions, and amazing athletes.
