About Our School

5 Secret Benefits of Martial Arts That’ll Change Your Life

Hello and welcome,

We’re so proud of you for investing in yourself and your personal protection! Our San Dimas 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.

#1 Huge Confidence Gains

Learning new skills and tasks is difficult. One of the first things both children AND adults notice when training is that they don’t get to have super-star kung fu movie style moves without some serious work. As you dig in, and put yourself to the test mentally and physically, you’ll realize something…

You’ll realize that through all of your hard work, by listening to your instructors, and showing up for yourself - you are incredibly capable of smashing your goals. This sense of achievement gives our students HUGE boosts in confidence.

As you learn striking, self-defense moves, or even learn how to do a push up for the first time you’ll proudly pat yourself on the back and feel great about the person you’re becoming. We love to see this trait develop in our students.

#2 Increased Focus & Mental Clarity

Since the techniques are new, they require your full attention. As you concentrate hard on listening to the instructor, following along with what they taught you, and then remembering what you learned when you get home...

...the intense concentration starts to naturally flow. It pours into all other areas of your life including work, school, and even other activities and sports you do for fun.

Adults are able to focus better at work, reaching goals easier while kids report doing better in school all around.

#3 Fitness at Your Level

No matter what your starting level is, each one of our students improves from where they were when they walked into their first class - from total beginner to elite athletes. We strive to make sure every class is loaded with fun and challenging exercises that work your entire body.

You’ll be so focused on performing techniques that some of the world’s top martial artists do, and having so much FUN, that before you know it, the class is over, and you not only learned powerful martial arts...

... but you got a GREAT workout, too. Shazam! Being physically fit boosts energy, mental clarity, and confidence as well.

#4 Community Connections

Get ready because your circle of influence is about to grow... big time! We're a tight-knit group here and everyone is all about support and friendship. As you struggle through tough training times, and smile through wins and victories, you’ll have your martial arts family right there to help and cheer you on. 

Friendship, encouragement, and high fives are part of every class. As you train together, you and your classmates will form an amazing bond. It's just an indescribable feeling.

#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.
