About Our School

Improve Your Life With Secret Martial Arts Benefits

Welcome to the family!

Our Ashland Martial Arts school might just seem like a place to get fit and learn self-defense... but to us it’s so much more. When you train with us you’ll experience a place where you fit in, no matter what your background or fitness experience is.

You’ll get into phenomenal shape, learn exciting self-defense skills, and experience personal growth that has improved the lives of each of our students. The physical transformation you’ll enjoy is fantastic, but the mindset and attitude you’ll develop is what’s truly amazing.

We’ll help you get next level fit, but below are a few of the more subtle changes our students experience in our classes as well.

#1 Remarkable Self-Confidence

Something amazing happens when you start to move your body and bring physical fitness into your creates an anchor. An anchor for more happiness, a sense of accomplishment, and a BIG BOOST in confidence!

You’ll have a group of passionate instructors and classmates ready to support you as you strive to push past your limits and reach your martial arts and fitness goals.

As you progress through class, you will realize how amazing and capable you already are. Realizing that makes you feel more confident and sure of yourself and your ability to handle other life challenges that come your way.

Both kids and adults experience this and it’s one of the most rewarding things to see as a teacher. Kids – especially shy and quiet ones - blossom into dynamic leaders in the classroom while adults tackle everyday tasks with more energy and a "can do" attitude.

#2 Improved Focus

Martial arts is challenging and requires your full attention. As you concentrate hard on listening to the instructor, then performing what they taught you, you start to build crucial links in your brain which boost your ability to focus.

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

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 better as well. Kids benefit too as they pay more attention at school and at home.

#3 Your Kind of Fitness 

No matter what your starting level is, every one of our students improves their fitness level from where they were before they walked into their first class. From total beginner to elite athletes. We strive to make sure every class is filled with challenging and fun exercise that works your body from head to toe.

You’ll be so focused on performing the same techniques that some of the world’s top performing martial artists do, and having so much fun, that before you know it, class has ended, and you not only learned powerful martial arts...

... but you just got a great workout, too. Being physically fit boosts energy, mental clarity, and happiness as well.

#4 Community & Family Ties

Martial artists are some of the most down-to-earth people you’ll ever meet. Highly skilled and dedicated to the lifestyle, we're definitely a tight-knit group here.

Students, their families, and our instructors are all about support and friendship. You’ll make tons of new friends for life, cheer each other on during tough times, and celebrate during victories.

Friendship, motivation, and dedication - that’s the foundation of the martial arts way of life. It's truly great to experience.

#5 Loads of Fun

Working out and having fun… say what? Yup, our classes are a blast! Martial arts is a way of life for us and we want you to have a happy and successful life too. We work hard, but we also play hard.

Did you know that the average adult laughs only about 20 times per day? That’s it. Our classes focus on your wholeness, which includes your physical, mental and spiritual health and well-being.

Laughing and smiling are part of every class here… and so are high fives and fist bumps.
