About Our School

The 5 Life-Changing Gifts of Martial Arts. For Kids AND Adults.

Dear neighbor,

Hi and welcome!

Have you been wanting to take control of your life for a while now but have been unsure how to do that? Perhaps you're looking for a new outlet for your kids to work off some of that extra energy while learning and growing.

Our Huntington Martial Arts school can certainly help you with those things. At first glance, most people think Martial Arts is a way to get fit and learn self-defense...which it is. But did you know...it's so much more than kicks and punches! Our students are amazed at how it truly enriches your life in ways most people are not prepared for.

These life-changing benefits are more "subtle" than the physical benefits you see from our classes. While we can see lean muscle forming, and feel the effects of cardio training within the first week, the benefits below are felt on a deeply personal level and have some phenomenal side effects.

Please read below to see how our students' lives have changed from their adventures into the action-packed world of Martial Arts. We can't wait to see how your life changes from our classes too!

#1 Soaring Confidence

Challenge yourself, change your life! As you dive in and put your focus on learning all of the crazy cool punching drills, self-defense techniques, and getting involved in the cardio training you’ll realize you can reach and CRUSH your fitness goals. 

Wow, what a huge boost in confidence you’ll see! We see it on all of the new student's faces within just a couple of weeks. A lot of it comes from the positive class atmosphere and all the socialization that takes place here. 

You’ll beam with pride as your classmates and instructors cheer you on. You’ll lose count of all the high fives as you progress through training and continue to give your all in class. Both kids and adults feel this and it spills over into other parts of their life. Kids step up to the plate and become leaders in their classrooms. And adults claim they take on challenges at work with more confidence too! 

#2 Spot on Focus

Martial arts is demanding at times and requires your full attention. As you concentrate hard on listening to the instructor, then performing what they taught you, you start to build important links in your brain that improve your ability to focus better and for longer periods of time. 

What’s great is that this intense concentration naturally pours into all other areas of your life too.

Adults report being able to not only concentrate better at work, but they’re able to clear their mind at the end of the day a lot more easily. Kids benefit too as they pay more attention at school and at home… and that means they’re more productive. 

#3 Totally Fit and Toned

Each class is jam-packed with fun and challenging exercises. But because you're so focused on practicing the moves, and having so much fun, you hardly notice it. Before you know it, the class is over, and not only did you learn powerful martial arts, you just got a great workout, too! 

Being physically fit also increases energy, confidence and how you feel about yourself.

#4 Community Connections

Get ready because your circle of influence is about to grow... big time! We're a tight-knit group here and everyone is all about support and friendship. As you struggle through tough training times, and smile through wins and victories, you’ll have your martial arts family right there to help and cheer you on. 

Friendship, encouragement, and high fives are part of every class. As you train together, you and your classmates will form an amazing bond. It's just an indescribable feeling.

#5 Out With Boredom and In With FUN!

Stuck in a fitness rut or tired of hitting up military style bootcamp classes where yelling is the norm? Ugh, who wants that? Luckily our classes are NOTHING like that. Action-packed and totally FUN, focused on your success, and always changing. No two workouts are the same and we always use positive motivation. 

No military style yelling or body shaming, ever. 

Both kids and adults work hard, but also play hard. You’ll see that laughing, smiles, and high fives are part of every class.
