The 5 Life-Changing Gifts of Martial Arts For Kids

Dear neighbor,

Hi and welcome!

Have you wanted to take control of your life for a while now, but you’re not quite sure how to do that? Perhaps you're looking for a better outlet for your kids to work off some extra energy they have while learning and growing.

Our Chandler Martial Arts school can certainly help you with those things. At first glance, some people think Martial Arts is just a way to get fit and learn self-defense...which is true. But it’s also so much more than grappling or putting someone in an arm, leg or headlock! Our students are amazed at how much it really changes their life in ways that most people are not prepared for.

These life-changing benefits are more "subtle" than the physical benefits you see from our classes. While you can see leaner muscles and feel the effects of cardio training within the first couple weeks, the benefits below are felt on a much deeper level and have some really awesome side effects.

Read below to see how our students' lives have changed from their adventures into the action-packed world of Martial Arts. We can't wait to see how your life changes from our classes too!

Soaring Confidence

No doubt, learning new skills and trying out new techniques is challenging! But when you stay strong and determined to overcome a challenge, and win, you realize you're stronger and more capable than you ever thought possible!

Knowing this makes you feel even stronger and more confident. You feel more sure of yourself and your ability to handle any challenge that comes your way. Both kids and adults feel their self-esteem and confidence soar quickly!

Full On Focus

Focus your mind grasshopper. As you concentrate on listening to your instructor, then perform what they taught you, you’ll improve your ability to focus and absolutely smash your martial arts and fitness goals.

The cool thing is that this laser like focus naturally pours into all other areas of your life too.

Studies have shown that just 30 minutes of physical fitness improves focus, heightens problem solving ability, and even boosts memory in both kids and adults.

Let’s Get Physical

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!

Community Values

Oh boy, your family is about to grow... big time! We're a tight-knit group here and our students are all about support and friendship. As you struggle through tough training times, and laugh through wins and victories, you’ll have your martial arts family at your back.

Friendship, motivation, and high fives are a part of every class. As you train together, you and your classmates will form an amazing bond. It's truly great to experience.

Get Your FUN On!

What? Working out can be FUN? You bet! Our classes are a blast! Martial arts is a way of life for us and we want you to have a super successful life too. We work hard, but we play hard too. 

Did you know that the average adult laughs only about 20 times per day? Our classes are designed so that you develop into above average in every way possible - and that includes your mental wellbeing. Smiles, everyone, smiles!

Laughing and smiling are part of every class, as well as high fives and TONS of support.

Both students and their parents love these Chandler kids martial arts classes with good reason. Our classes are not only centered towards martial art techniques but also instill our students with discipline and a deeper sense of respect. In the end, the kids become more focused and confident and even perform better in a traditional or home school environment.

But we don't mean all work with no play...that is why all our classes are blended with super-fun games and events. We help kids to learn new martial art techniques, perfect the old ones and make friends too.

If you are looking for a fun form of exercise that keeps your body moving and challenges your mind - while learning self-defense - kickboxing is guaranteed to hit the spot.

Learn exciting, powerful techniques, get in great shape fast by using your body in new, calorie-burning ways... and have great fun as you make friends with other people on their journey. Our classes are designed for people of all experience levels, too - from beginners to pros.

So school's out and you're looking for the coolest camp around to send your kid to, right? We've got you covered with our Martial Arts Summer Camp. Every day your child will experience super fun games and activities... learn powerful self-defense skills... get a healthy dose of fitness... make friends...

... and learn all about important life lessons like discipline, goal setting, focus & concentration, and more. We give kids the perfect blend of structure and “running free”. Call us now to learn more. But hurry! We sell out fast, and I'd hate for you to miss out.

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... pizza (of course!)... and more. Plus your kid will be the one-and-only star of the show!

They'll help teach martial arts to their friends... 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.
