The 5 Ways We Change Lives,
For Both Kids & Adults.

Dear neighbor,

Hi and welcome!

Have you been wanting to take control of your life for a while now but have been unsure how to do that? Perhaps you're looking for a new outlet for your kids to work off some of that extra energy while learning and growing.

Our Kearny Martial Arts school can certainly help you with those things. At first glance, most people think Martial Arts is a way to get fit and learn self-defense...which it is. But did you know...it's so much more than kicks and punches! Our students are amazed at how it truly enriches your life in ways most people are not prepared for.

These life-changing benefits are more "subtle" than the physical benefits you see from our classes. While we can see lean muscle forming, and feel the effects of cardio training within the first week, the benefits below are felt on a deeply personal level and have some phenomenal side effects.

Please 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!

#1More Confidence

One of the first things both children AND adults notice when training with us is a big boost in confidence. And it makes sense when you think about it.

After all, martial arts is challenging. Yet when you persevere in the face of challenge, and come out on top, you realize you're stronger and more capable than you thought.

Realizing that makes you feel more confident. You feel more sure of your ability to handle whatever other challenges life throws your way.

This goes for kids, too. Their confidence boosts quickly as well.

#2More Focus

Because the techniques are challenging, they require your full attention. You have to concentrate hard on listening to the instructor, then performing what they taught you.

The neat thing is this intense concentration naturally pours into all other areas of your life.

Adults find themselves focusing more easily and intensely at work. Kids pay better attention and focus better in school.

#3Break Through Physical Fitness Barriers

No matter what your starting level is, you will get better with these classes! Each class is loaded with challenging and fun techniques that will teach you powerful martial arts and give you an amazing workout.

Since you are measured by your own personal success, our students see improvements quickly and are able to celebrate their personal victories along the way.

Our functional, body weight focused training helps you move your body and uses everything from your head to your toes. These workouts are high-energy, crazy fun, and get you running lean in no time.

Plus...being physically fit boosts energy, mental clarity, and confidence as well!


We're a tight-knit group here. And 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.

#5You'll Have FUN!

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 well-being.

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

Both students and their parents love these Kearny 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.

Have you been dreaming of learning Martial Arts? Maybe you've even taken a few classes in different styles such as Taekwondo, Muay Thai, or Kickboxing. Shotokan Karate is rooted in Japanese culture, tradition, and world-renowned. You'll learn amazing self-defense moves, get a phenomenal workout and even experience inner-growth.

Our Kearny Adult Martial Arts Classes cater to all skill levels and physical abilities. The instructors are some of the best you'll ever find, having committed their lives to not only becoming great martial artists... but great instructors dedicated to helping you meet personal goals.
