Complete Physical Fitness Program
Martial Arts training is a comprehsive workout using the ultimate tool, your own body! Training involves every aspect
of athleticism: balance, coordination, strength, endurance, and flexibility. Training is both aerobic and anaerobic. Additionally, our classes are progressive; as students advance, the workouts become more complex, strenuous, and demanding.
Promotes Mental Awareness
An essential part of martial arts and self-defense is awareness of your surroundings and identifying potentially bad scenarios. Our students learn how to recognize the signals of potential danger, and learn the appropriate response.
Self-discipline isn't just for kids. Our training systems allow adult students to set short-term goals and then strive to meet those goals. Working toward goals in a martial arts setting carries over into other areas of life: college, continuing education, family, hobbies, and careers.
According to a study published in Psychology Today, martial artists have less anxiety, a greater sense of responsibility, are less likely to take uninformed risks, and are more socially intelligent.
