Learn how to protect yourself & your loved ones. Get in great shape at the same time.
We’re so proud of you for investing in yourself and your personal protection! Our Overland Park martial arts school is a place to get fit and learn self-defense... but the truth is it's so much more.
Did you know that our students experience serious, life-changing benefits beyond physical fitness when they train with us? Most of them are not prepared for the soul-filling, heartwarming effects of our classes and how they change a person's whole outlook on life.
We’ve had students struggling through depression, loneliness, and even divorce spring to life in our classes. We’ve seen children struggling with attention issues become focused and transform into model students.
The benefits of training are life altering and positive. Below we’d like to share a few more changes our students tell us they love experiencing too.
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.
Did you hear the good news? Exercise helps you think better! Studies have shown that moving your body helps increase blood flow, oxygen, and in creating new pathways in your brain.
Plus, on a non-sciency front - as you focus on all of the new moves your instructors teach you, you’ll improve your memory and ability to concentrate. Many students find they are able to handle stress better and really focus on tasks in school or at work.
It’s so neat how intense concentration learned in class naturally pours into all other areas of your life.
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!
What do you think of when you hear the word community? We think of a group of like minded students, struggling through tough training times together, celebrating successes together, and encouraging each other no matter what. We think of teamwork and truly belonging no matter what your background is.
We're a tight-knit group here and our students are all about support. We provide the kind of environment that fosters friendship, encouragement, and motivation.
Working out and fun? Yup! Our classes are a blast! Martial arts is a way of life for us and we want you to have a good life too. We work hard but we play hard too.
Did you know that the average adult only laughs about 20 times per day? Our classes strive to make you above average in every way - and that includes your mental wellbeing.
Laughing and smiles are part of every class as well as high fives and TONS of support.
Yup, that’s how much we believe in you. Scroll up to the top of this page and click on the program that's right for you. Snag the super-sweet web special and try us out. If we’re not for you, no worries. You get 100% of your money back. No ifs ands or buts.
