About Our School

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

Welcome!

Bet you thought our Gilbert Martial Arts school was nothing more than just a super cool place to get fit and learn self-defense. Well, that’s true, but it's so much more than that!

As you get physically fit, you’ll also start to see some changes that most of our students are NOT prepared for. Especially our younger students. They are absolutely amazed by some of the indirect changes that happen when you train in our programs. 

Below are a handful of those really awesome, life-changing experiences people walk away with. We can’t wait to hear what kind of positive things you experience too!

#1 Increased Confidence

Challenge yourself and change your life! As you dive in to martial arts and put your efforts into learning all the crazy cool striking drills, self-defense techniques, and getting the most out of cardio training, you’ll quickly realize you CAN shatter your fitness goals.

Wow, what a big boost in confidence that brings! We see it on all the new students' faces within just a couple of weeks. Believe it or not, but a lot of it comes from the encouraging class atmosphere and positive socialization that goes on here. 

You’ll smile and feel good as your classmates and instructors cheer you on. High fives will fly high as you progress through training and continue to give your all in class. Both kids and adults feel this and it spills over into their everyday life, as well. Kids step up to the plate and become role models in school. Even adults say that they take on bigger challenges at work with more confidence.

#2 Remarkable Focus

Martial arts is challenging and requires your full attention. As you concentrate on listening to the instructor, then performing what they taught you, you start to build crucial links in your brain that increase your ability to focus… and for longer periods of time. 

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

Adults report being able to not only focus better at work, but they’re able to release things and clear their mind at the end of the day, as well. Kids benefit too as they pay more attention at school and at home. 

#3 Ready…Set…Let’s Get Physical

Our classes are an absolute BLAST and are based on functional fitness. We use positive motivation and high fives – never any type of military style yelling or doing the same thing over and over again. There is nothing boring about our classes.

This means that every one of our classes is loaded with challenging, fun exercises designed to enhance your self-defense skills. Dynamic striking, high intensity intervals of cardio training, and movements that mimic how the human body should move are our focus. 

Don’t worry if you think you won’t be able to keep up… you will. We work with all levels from total beginner to pro athlete. And you know what...they all sweat the same at the end of our workouts!

#4 Feeling Like You Belong Here

Many martial artists claim they always felt like an “outsider” before they found Martial Arts. Some of our students just never got into organized sports in school or felt that social clubs weren’t for them.

But the same students that tell us how they “never fit in” or weren’t popular seem to come alive in class! We provide a safe, non-judgmental environment where we all want each other to succeed. We don’t have bullies or students trying to one up or outdo each other.

Our members and instructors are all about support and friendship. Kids and adults easily make a lot of friends here and, as a result, our one big happy family thrives.

We provide the kind of environment that fosters friendship, encouragement, and motivation. The sense of fulfillment you get after every class will bring a big smile to your face.

#5 Get Your FUN On!

What? Working out can be FUN? You bet! Our classes are a blast! Martial arts is a way of life for us and we want you to have a super successful life too. We work hard, but we play hard too. 

Did you know that the average adult laughs only about 20 times per day? Our classes are designed so that you develop into above average in every way possible - and that includes your mental wellbeing. Smiles, everyone, smiles!

Laughing and smiling are part of every class, as well as high fives and TONS of support.
