About Our School

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

Welcome!

Bet you thought our Northlake 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.

Below are just a few of those life-changing experiences people see and feel. We can’t wait to hear what kind of positive experiences you have too!

Soaring Confidence

Challenge yourself, change your life! As you dive in and put your focus on learning all of the crazy cool punching drills, self-defense techniques, and getting involved in the cardio training you’ll realize you can reach and CRUSH your fitness goals. 

Wow, what a huge boost in confidence you’ll see! We see it on all of the new student's faces within just a couple of weeks. A lot of it comes from the positive class atmosphere and all the socialization that takes place here. 

You’ll beam with pride as your classmates and instructors cheer you on. You’ll lose count of all the high fives as you progress through training and continue to give your all in class. Both kids and adults feel this and it spills over into other parts of their life. Kids step up to the plate and become leaders in their classrooms. And adults claim they take on challenges at work with more confidence too! 

Laser-like Focus

Martial Arts is a ton of fun! You’ll learn all kinds of new skills and techniques like striking drills, defensive moves, and even some fun cardio drills. But... when you learn something new, you have to concentrate on listening to the instructor, then perform what they taught you.

The cool thing is that this intense focus naturally pours into all other areas of your life as you develop spot on focus. It’s one of the most amazing side effects of martial arts — many call it getting in the zone, unlocking your hidden potential, or peak performance.

Whatever you want to call it, one thing is for sure — you’ll learn how to focus your mind to perform things you once thought were impossible.

Totally Fit and Toned

Each class is jam-packed with fun and challenging exercises. But because you're so focused on practicing the moves, and having so much fun, you hardly notice it. Before you know it, the class is over, and not only did you learn powerful martial arts, you just got a great workout, too! 

Being physically fit also increases energy, confidence and how you feel about yourself.

Family, Friends & Values

Oh boy, your family is about to grow... big time! We're a tight-knit group here and our students are all about support and friendship. When you sometimes struggle through tough training, and smile at all your wins and accomplishments, your martial arts family will be right beside you every step of the way.

Friendship, motivation, and fist bumps are a part of every class. As you train together, you and your classmates will form an amazing bond that will make your heart sing.

It’s All About the FUN!

Stuck in a fitness rut or tired of going to bootcamp style classes where you get yelled at? That’s no fun and luckily our classes are NOTHING like that. Action-packed and a total blast, 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 work hard, but also play hard. Laughing, smiles, and woo-hoos are part of every class.
