The Martial Arts Center Motto
. Stated very simply this phrase bears a deeper meaning. Once you begin something, no matter how insignificant, do your best to see it through to the end.
"Never Ever Quit"
We consider all students to be Black Belts in training. That is why our logo bears the phrase Black Belt Training. This reminds us everyday what our ultimate goal is in the martial arts. If we don't know where we're headed we will never get there.
What We Teach at the Martial Arts Center
Our base system is Chinese Kenpo Karate, with strong influences from Kali/Escrima, American Karate/Kickboxing and other non-traditional eclectic arts.
Kenpo for Kids
Little Dragons (Beginner)
Our children's classes are specialized programs gleaned from many sources. Our youngest children's class is called Little Dragons. Our program provides a foundation for children to excel in numerous areas of their lives.
Some training benefits include:
We provide three, one hour, sessions per week without a contract. All new students can purchase a training uniform for $30.00. The monthly charge is $65.00
Little Dragons (Advanced)
The next class in our training program is for the students who need it the most. At this age group children and their class mates begin to develop into more mature individuals capable of injuring one another. We provide three, one hour, sessions per week without a contract.
As with the previous program a uniform can be purchased by all new students for $30.00. The monthly cost is $65.00 This training includes instruction that is designed for the specific problems that children in this age group are faced with everyday.
As karate instructors our relationship with our students allow us to act as positive role models. This is a position that we take very seriously. Once a student becomes a member at our school we will work with him as much as possible in order to improve confidence, self-awareness, self-control and self-discipline.
We do not promote any violent activity, behavior or association with any religious order. The training taught at the Martial Arts Center will be according to the guidelines and by laws of our governing body. Any student caught violating these guidelines will be summarily dismissed from our school.
We will work with parents, teachers and healthcare professionals to see that the student will benefit from an association with our school, and we are seriously committed to our policies for effective life management.
We offer a variety of adult programs ranging from Aerobic Kickboxing to Yang Style Tai Chi. Our adult program operates the same as our Advancing Dragons program as far as cost and start up benefits. You receive two private lessons per month for $80.00 This includes all of our other workout classes at no additional charge. Private lessons are scheduled by appointment with our head instructor.
