The 5 Unexpected, Life-Altering
Effects of Martial Arts.

Hi and welcome!

We’re so happy to share our passion for martial arts with you. While it may seem like our Aurora Martial Arts school is just another place to get fit and learn self-defense... to us it’s way more than that. 

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 Skyrocketing Self-Confidence

Something amazing happens when you start to move your body and bring physical fitness into your life...it creates a foundation. A foundation for more happiness, a sense of accomplishment, and a BIG BOOST in confidence! 

You’ll have a group of passionate instructors and classmates right there ready to support you as you push past your limits and strive to reach your martial arts and fitness goals. 

As you progress through class, you will quickly realize how amazing and capable you already are. Knowing that makes you feel more confident and sure of yourself and increases your ability to handle other life challenges that come your way.

Both kids and adults experience this and it’s one of the most rewarding things to see as a teacher. Kids – especially shy and quiet ones - blossom into superb leaders in the classroom, while adults tackle everyday tasks with more energy and a "can do" attitude. 

#2 Full On Focus

Martial Arts is so much fun! You’ll learn all kinds of new skills and techniques like strategic punching and kicking, defensive moves, and cardio drills. When you learn a new skill, you have to really focus and listen carefully to what the instructor is saying, then perform what he taught you.

What’s cool is that this strong concentration naturally pours into other areas of your life as you develop laser like focus. It’s one of the most amazing side-effects of martial arts - many call it getting in the zone, unlocking your untapped potential, or peak performance.

Call it whatever you want, but one thing is spot-on - you’ll learn how to focus your mind and perform tasks you once thought were impossible.

#3 Pump It Up

Our classes are a blast and based on functional fitness. We use positive motivation and high fives - not military style yelling – and you’ll never have to spend countless hours on a boring treadmill again. 

Our classes are loaded with fun and exciting exercises designed to enhance your self-defense skills. Dynamic strikes, high intensity intervals of cardio training, and physical movements that mimic how the human body should move are the focus. 

Don’t worry if you feel like you won’t be able to keep up. We work with all levels from beginner to pro athlete – and everyone in between. And you know what...they all sweat the same at the end of the workout! 

#4 We Are Family

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 like social clubs weren’t for them. 

But those 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-intimidating environment where we all want each other to succeed. There are no bullies or students trying to one up each other on my watch. 

You’ll get nothing but a lot of support and friendship from our members and instructors. It’s easy to make new friends here and, as a result, our community thrives.

We provide the kind of environment that promotes friendship, encouragement, and motivation. The sense of fulfillment after every class is more than you can imagine. 

#5 FUN Times & Great Memories!

Sometimes getting fit can be not so fun and downright boring. Not here though because we’re working out like super-star martial artists! Learning to use our entire body to protect ourselves and our families. In our action-packed classes, you’ll tighten up your core, gain lean muscle on your arms and legs, and have an absolute blast. 

No two workouts are ever the same and we DON'T use military style yelling or body shaming. After all, we want you to have a ton of fun here, and keep coming back. Plus, our instructors know they’ll get the best possible performance out of you when you’re in a good mood. That’s when we’re at our best too! 

Both kids and adults work hard… and play hard. Laughing, smiles and first bumps are part of every class.
