The 5 Life-Changing Gifts of
Martial Arts. For Kids AND Adults.

Hi and welcome!

We’re so happy to share our passion for martial arts with you. For some, our Fairport Martial Arts school might just seem like a place to get fit and learn self-defense... but to us it’s so much more.

While you get into the absolute best shape of your life, some other “subtle” changes happen as well. These changes are mind blowing to our new students. When you train in our programs, your life will never be the same again...in a really good way!

Here are a handful of those life-changing benefits students experience…

#1 Boost In Confidence

Learning new skills and trying out new techniques is challenging! But when you persevere in the face of a challenge, and come out on top, you realize you're stronger and more capable than you ever thought possible!

Realizing this makes you feel more confident. You feel more sure of your ability to handle whatever other challenges life throws your way too. Both kids and adults feel their self-esteem and confidence soar quickly!

#2 Improved Focus

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.

What’s great is that 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.

#3 Physical Fitness

Each class is loaded with challenging, fun exercise. But because you're so focused on performing techniques, and having so much fun, you hardly notice it. Before you know it, the class is over, and you not only learned powerful martial arts...

... you got a great workout, too. Being physically fit boosts energy, mental clarity, and confidence as well.

#4 Gain a Sense of Community

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.

#5 You’ll Have FUN Again!

Reignite your passion for life in our awesome classes! No two workouts are ever the same and you’ll rock your body to the core with fun, functional movements.

Gain lean muscle, increase your flexibility, and learn dynamic movements which are super-secret to martial arts conditioning. You’ll never hear military style yelling and we don’t use body shaming, ever. Just fun, positive motivation so you can be at your best.

Our students work hard, but they play even harder! Laughing and smiles are part of every class.
