Life-changing classes in self-defense, fitness & weight loss, and a more focused, confident life.
Bet you thought our Mandeville 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!
Something amazing happens when you start to move your body and incorporate physical fitness into your life...it creates an anchor. An anchor for more happiness, for a feeling of accomplishments, and a really big boost in confidence! You’ll have a network of passionate instructors and classmates ready to support you as you strive to bust through your martial arts and fitness goals.
As you progress through class you will realize how amazing and capable you can be. Realizing that makes you feel more confident and sure of your ability to handle whatever other challenges life throws your way.
Both kids and adults experience this and it’s one of the greatest things to see as a teacher. Wallflower students blossom into dynamic leaders in the classroom while adults tackle everyday tasks with gusto and a "can do" attitude.
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.
The neat thing is 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.
Our classes are a blast and based on functional fitness. We use positive reinforcement and high fives instead of military style yelling and endless hours on a treadmill.
This means that each of our classes is loaded with challenging, fun exercises designed to enhance your self-defense skills. Dynamic striking, high intensity intervals of cardio training, and movements that mimic how the human body should move are our focus.
Don’t worry if you feel as though you won’t be able to keep up. We work with all levels from total beginner to pro athlete. And you know what...they all sweat the same at the end of our workouts!
Many martial artists claim they always felt like an “outsider” before they found martial arts. Some of our students just never got into organized sports in school or felt that social clubs weren’t for them.
But the same students that tell us how they “never fit in” or weren’t popular seem to come alive in class! We provide a safe, non-judgemental environment where we all want each other to succeed. We don’t have bullies or students trying to one up each other. 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.
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.
Our Mandeville Kids Karate classes are not only geared towards excellent self-defense techniques, striking, and kicking - children ages 3 and up are taught self-discipline, focus, and respect. Parents of the students love our classes too because they have seen their kids become better behaved everywhere they go and often perform better in school.
We love to keep the kids engaged and attentive with a little bit of play! It's fun for kids, parents, and the instructors. Classes are packed with fun activities and games as kids improve techniques and have a blast!
Let your kid feel like a total rock star with our awesome kids birthday package. It's a fun, educational, structured birthday party involving martial arts... crazy-cool fun & games... and more. Plus your kid will be the one-and-only star of the show!
They'll help teach martial arts to their friends... cut the birthday cake with a real sword (carefully supervised of course!)... and break a wooden board with just their hands or feet (if they've reached this level in their training). Guaranteed to be a safe, fun, awesome experience for your child & all of his / her friends.
