Our world is now one where kids of all ages are dealing with heightened degrees of bullying, girls with low self-esteem, boys with no confidence, kids with no direction, low attention span, discipline issues, obesity, ADD, and on and on it goes.
Adults are no better with health issues, lack of energy, lack of time, stress and low stamina. And let’s be honest. Sometimes it’s just pure laziness or being stuck in that comfortable rut we’ve created for ourselves.
Students have many reasons for their interest in martial arts. Some are drawn to the physical fitness and weight loss aspects of training. Others seek to add discipline and self-control to their lives, or individuals are concerned about safety and self-defense.
Whatever the reason, martial arts is a sport to be utilized, and can benefit all.
We offer a variety of programs ranging from basic fitness and cardio to structured martial arts and weapons classes!
Belts & Testing
Although training for belts is a goal most students try to obtain, it is not a requirement. Students are not compared with others because we are individuals with our own levels of skill. The instructor looks at what the student can do, and is capable of doing. We are our own worst critic & competitor. Students should be striving against themselves, and not worrying about how they compare to others.
Belts are earned at our school, not ‘given’, so the student is left with a feeling of true accomplishment and knowledge.
How quickly can a student obtain a belt?
This depends on the student. Factors such as how often they train, how well they retain information, personal drive and determination. For the low belts it’s an average of every 2 months. As one progresses higher in rank, it becomes a longer period of time in order to learn the skills and to prepare physically for the test.
