Respect. Confidence. Discipline.
Martial Arts Training for Kids & Families
Raising kids is hard.
We hear from parents all the time:
“My Daughter is getting bullied by other girls in her class.”
“I get a call from the school every week because of my child’s behavior.”
“My son is so shy he doesn’t have any friends.”
Let us help you raise successful children.
We want to give your family the tools to Strive for Excellence
Focus Your Energy
Learn to Lead
Stand up for Yourself
Train as a Family
More than 24 Years of teaching experience
Because of my martial arts training I’m a more confident, fit, and disciplined person then I would have ever believed. My passion is passing that on to others!

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.
