Bet you thought our Decatur martial arts school was just a super cool place to get fit and learn self-defense…well, you’re right, but it’s a lot MORE than just that!

As you get strong and physically fit, you’ll also start to see some changes that most of our students didn’t know would happen. Especially the younger ones. They are totally amazed by the subtle changes that happen when you train in our programs.




Martial Arts is an excellent activity for children. They’ll learn to defend themselves physically, but more importantly they’ll build the mental and emotional skill sets necessary to conquer challenges like high school, college, and becoming a healthy, balanced adult.


Whether your goal is losing weight, building muscle, learning to defend yourself, or just having a blast, our Adult Martial Arts classes are just what you need. You’ll love the high energy environment, your body will love the intense workout, and your spirit will love the camaraderie and positive atmosphere of group classes.


Finally an insanely fun, organized birthday party that takes the stress out of planning the next big day! Enjoy the festivities while we take care of the hosting and supervision. Discover how your child’s next party can be just as fun for the parents as it is for the kids!


This summer vacation, let’s ensure your child gets the activity and social interaction needed to succeed. At our summer camp your child will have an absolute blast engaging with fun summer activities all while learning and benefiting from the powerful life skills Martial Arts has to offer. Get started today with the ultimate Summer Camp experience!
