About Our School

The 5 Reasons Our Martial Arts Classes Are
So Life-Changing, For Both Kids & Adults.

Hi and welcome!

Want to take control of your life but have been unsure of 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, in a positive and motivating environment.

Maybe you just want to do something amazing, fun, and exciting for yourself because you ARE worth it.

Our Blasdell Martial Arts school can certainly help you with all of those things.

At first glance, most people think Martial Arts is a way to get fit and learn self-defense...which is true...but...

Martial arts is so much more than just kicks and punches! Can you imagine how amazing your life will be with enhanced physical fitness, improved mental focus and clearer thinking, lightning fast reflexes, and a healthier body to take you well into your golden years?

Luckily, we don’t have to imagine it because we see these things in action. Every. Single. Day.

Our students continuously tell us how Martial Arts enriches their lives in ways most people are not prepared for. Seriously. And it will do the same for you.

These life-changing benefits are more "subtle" than the physical benefits you see from our classes. While you 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 with some phenomenal (positive!) side effects.

Just by reading this far, you have proven that you are ready to take a chance on yourself, leap feet first into the action-packed world of Martial Arts, and live a truly amazing life!

Change can be scary but we’ll be there the entire time to guide you and support you. You CAN have it all, and we can’t wait to be there with you to hear all about it.

Here are a few life-changing benefits you can expect…

#1 Soaring Confidence

Learning anything new can be difficult. You’ll notice right away that many of the techniques and drills we teach are challenging, but that’s the point!

As you practice, and test yourself both physically and mentally, you’ll realize that with all your hard work, your instructor’s guidance, and consistently showing up - you are capable of crushing your goals! This sense of achievement gives our students soaring confidence.

As you develop new skills like punching and kicking- or even how to do a push up for the first time- you’ll experience a sense of accomplishment that’s incredibly satisfying and fulfilling. We love seeing this develop in our students!

#2 Laser Like Focus

Because the techniques are challenging, they require your full attention. You have to focus on the instructor and what they’re saying, then perform what they taught you.

The neat thing is that this concentration naturally pours into all other areas of your life too.

Adults find themselves focusing more easily and intensely at work. Kids pay better attention and focus better in school for longer periods of time.

#3 Physical Fitness

Each class is jam-packed with challenging, fun exercise. But because you're so focused on learning and doing the moves, and having a ton of fun, you hardly notice it. Before you know it, the class is over, and you not only learned powerful martial arts... 

... you just got a great workout, too. Being physically fit boosts energy, mental clarity, and self-esteem, as well.

#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 My Personal Favorite: FUN!

These classes are NOT military-style where someone shouts at you and forces you to do a bunch of things you hate! No, these classes are filled with FUN. Laughter can be heard throughout every class, people can be seen smiling, and the time flies.

We want you to enjoy coming here, so we make it as fun and engaging as possible for you. That goes for both kids and adults.
