We train in a martial art that has been handed down from instructor to student for hundreds of years. We believe in traditional values, and that the act of learning is an end in of itself. The ultimate goal is not to destroy the enemy and win trophies, but to become a better person and carry on the torch of knowledge.
Our internationally certified martial arts instructors are highly proficient martial artists. They have extensive experience in teaching students of all ages and skill levels. Our instructors continue to develop themselves in order to improve the overall quality of their instruction.
We are all one family. Students develop bonds and friendships through the martial arts. The studio becomes a positive environment where peers support one another, and every victory is shared among its members.
The Tigers & Dragons program is for children age 4 through 6. This program is designed to develop strength, balance and coordination while building respect, learning discipline and enhancing focus.
Our youth martial arts program is designed for students from age 7 to 12. These classes will help build confidence, develop self-discipline and increase concentration skills through traditional martial arts training.
Joining our classes for teens and adults is a perfect way to learn self-defense, relieve stress and get in shape - and have fun doing it all! Students will learn a blend of traditional and modern martial arts elements.
Learning to deal with aggressive persons and hostile environments is one of the most important aspects of a martial arts studio. The greatest thing that students gain by training in self-defense is not just being able to protect themselves against an attack, but the latent effects of having the knowledge that they are safe. Learning to defend one's self will enhance a student's self-esteem and self-confidence.
Martial arts yields multiple health benefits for both kids and adults. Whether your fitness goals are to lose weight, tone up or to just feel better - we can help make it happen. Students who regularly attend classes will experience multiple improvements both physically and mentally. Stamina, endurance, strength and flexibility will steadily advance alongside focusing skills and memory.
The success of every student is important to our whole community. We support one another and drive each other toward making progress and achieving our goals. Our program develops self-discipline and a sense of responsibility. Training with the encouragement of the studio will give students a sense of determination and help maximize their potential in every facet of their lives.
