About Our School

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

Welcome!

Bet you thought our Grafton Martial Arts school was just a super cool place to get fit and learn self-defense... the truth is it's so much more.

As you get physically fit, you’ll also experience some changes most of our students are NOT prepared for. Especially our younger students. They are absolutely blown away by the subtle changes that happen when you train in our programs.

Below are a handful of those life-changing experiences people walk away with. We can’t wait to hear what kind of positive experiences you can add to the list as well!

Boosted Confidence

Challenge yourself, change your life! As you dig in and put your efforts into learning all of the crazy cool striking drills, self-defense techniques, and showing up for cardio training you’ll realize you CAN smash your fitness goals.

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

You’ll swell with pride 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. Kids step up to the plate, becoming leaders in their classrooms. And adults claim they take on challenges at work with more confidence too!

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.

Boosted Physical Fitness

Whether you’re an elite athlete looking for a competitive edge or if you’re a total beginner and think a burpee is a bodily function, we take pride in meeting all of our students where they are. Our passionate and caring instructors work with YOU to meet your fitness goals.

In a positive and motivating environment, you’ll get a great workout, practice dynamic martial arts specific conditioning, and have a blast. Before you know it, the class is over, and you not only learned powerful martial arts...

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

Community

We're a tight-knit group here. And our members and instructors are all about support and friendship. Kids and adults both make friends with the other members, and as a result, our community thrives.

We provide the kind of environment that fosters friendship, encouragement, and motivation. It's truly great to experience.

Breakup with Boredom, Have FUN!

Stuck in a fitness rut or tired of hitting up bootcamp style classes just to be yelled at on your personal time? Ugh, who can blame you... 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 use positive motivation.

No military style yelling or body shaming, ever.

Both kids and adults both work hard, but also play hard too. Laughing, smiles, and high fives are part of every class.

Kids Martial Arts

Our kids Martial Arts classes help kids in so many amazing ways. In fact, self-defense is just the beginning. Mastering Martial Arts takes determination & commitment - two life skills that your child will use in all other areas of their life too.

It also takes focus, respect & attention: traits that will help improve their grades, and make them more motivated to help around the house. Plus, kids have a BLAST in every class. Your child is sure to have the time of their life, and make a lot of awesome friends along the way.
