We encourage parents to watch their children in their kids martial arts lessons. We love parents getting involved! And so do their kids.  Even better… join into some of our martial arts classes for adults. Your kids will love that you have something in common. It will build a strong family bond!

Additionally, if you wanted some ‘me-time’?  Simply drop them off, and go grab a coffee.  They will greet you with a huge smile when you return, because they had SO much fun!

No, not at all! We find that people start at varying fitness levels. But, you will find that you do get fit by doing our North Phoenix martial arts classes. Isn’t that the point though? A fun workout that gets results!

We find that our students become more confident to stand up to bullies and have more humility and kindness to others through their martial arts lessons.

Truthfully, the journey to black belt is an individual one. Everyone can progress at a different pace. There is no judgement on students for how long it does take. What we can tell you, is that it is SO WORTHWHILE! 

The self defense skills you will master can truly be life-saving!
However, the other benefits of striving for black belt, like perseverance, never giving up, commitment and self discipline lead to life-long success.

We feel that there is a certain degree of maturity that needs to be attained to have a Black Belt.  We also feel that your first black belt is the most memorable experience.  If it is given too young, it’s truly not appreciated enough.  We generally promote to black belt starting at 14 or 15.  For our young kids, they will be able to earn belts on a regular basis to be able to work on their short and long term goals.  For adults, they can expect it to take about 4 years of training.

We have a typical martial arts contract, but our memberships are month by month with a 30 day cancellation.

We do only have a certain amount of space in our martial arts training area.  Take advantage of our limited time offer… The fastest way is to fill in the form. 

Additionally, you can always call us, we would love to chat with you about what we do, and if our North Phoenix martial arts classes would be a great fit for you and your family!

Make sure you wear comfortable clothes you can do sport in!  Not really suitable to practice kicks in a skirt.😳


Not at all. In fact, many students starting in our adult martial arts classes would describe themselves like that before they started. So you will fit right in!

Give yourself some time, and you will be astounded at how much you improve!  You’ll find that our very experienced martial arts instructors, are trained to keep their teaching simple. So even the most uncoordinated person will develop ‘ninja-like’ skills! Come see for yourself!
