Who we Are And why You Should Train Here

Does your child lack confidence or have an inability to focus? Are they out of shape due to inactivity?  Lack of motivation and insecurity can stem from many things.  Whether it be difficulties in the home or bullying at school, these issues can be very difficult to handle. 

I know how it feels to be that struggling kid.  My parents split when I was two years old.  I was “introverted” and “awkward”.  To top it off, I had no siblings to help guide me.  Many of us have struggled with these issues or know of a child that has.  It can be so frustrating as a parent?!!!  We all want what is best for our kids….what do you do???? 

Having trained for over 27 years and worked with thousands of kids and adults, I have seen how “Quality” Martial Arts Training positively impacts children as well as adults and can change these behaviors.   

How are we different?  Our studio is unique in the sense that we blend four key areas:  The Traditional art of Tang Soo Do (Korean Karate), Reality based Self-Defense, Sport Karate and Kickboxing.  Many schools tend to focus on only one or two of these areas.  Each area by itself has value, however, without a well-rounded approach to training you become a “Partial Artist”.  We truly have something for everyone to excel at.  All our classes are segmented by age and ability.  I highly recommend trying our 4-week trial membership to see for yourself how we can help!  The road to better confidence can start now!!!   Martial Arts changed my life.  I opened SMA with the intent of positively affecting as many lives as possible.  You owe it to yourself to see what it can do for you.
