Why Martial Arts?
"Confidence makes you more glamorous than all the jewels of the world." ~ Unknown
Is confidence really all that important? Amazingly so!
In fact, martial arts and self-confidence go hand-in-hand. Martial
artists know that confidence is built on upon accomplishment. If you
also add a positive attitude, you get the secret to increased popularity.
Add focus and discipline and you get the recipe for success in life. One
last secret - it's got to be real; you can't fake it.

For Children and Teens
Safety - Our martial arts classes are safer than many other activities, especially team sports. If your children do not like team sports, participation in the martial arts will give them athletic ability as well as character development and mental toughness.
Confidence - Self-confidence is created through achievement. As your children reach their goals (belt ranks), they will develop and increase their confidence through the C.A.N.I. (constant and never-ending improvement) principle.
Children these days are under a lot of stress; teens even more so. Drugs, alcohol, violence, bullying, pressure to achieve, pressure to conform all take a toll. Stress always creates negative effects when someone feels overwhelmed and helpless.
Girls and Boys
Martial arts is an activity in which both boys and girls can equally benefit and excel.
Fitness - No matter how many years have passed since high school or how many years since you have exercised, your body will positively respond to our programs that will put a new spring in your step as you go through daily activities.
Stress Relief - If kids think they know stress, just imagine how they will react when they become adults. Gas shortages, rising prices, job layoffs, high blood pressure - it seems there is something new to be stressed about every day. Exercise is a miracle solution to the toxic effects of stress overload.
Positive Attitude - Some days it feels like having fun is something you did a long time ago. Knowing that you are doing something positive and beneficial for yourself will help you achieve a more positive outlook and a "can't wait to get out of bed and start the day" attitude.
