About Our School

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

Hello and welcome,

We’re so proud of you for investing in yourself and your personal protection! Our Kalamazoo 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 Skyrocketing Confidence

Challenge yourself and watch your life change too! As you explore martial arts and put your efforts into learning all the crazy cool striking drills, self-defense techniques, and getting the most out of cardio training, you’ll quickly realize you CAN crush your fitness goals.

Wow, what a huge boost in confidence that brings! We see it on all the new students' faces within just a couple of weeks. Believe it or not, but a lot of it comes from the positive class atmosphere and the healthy kind of socializing that goes on here.

You’ll smile big and feel good as everyone cheers you on. There’s no shortage of high fives here as you progress through training and continue to give your all in class. Both kids and adults feel this and it spills over into their everyday life, as well. Kids step up to the plate and become leaders in school. Even adults say that they take on bigger challenges at work with ease and confidence.

#2 Remarkable Focus

Martial arts is challenging and requires your full attention. As you concentrate on listening to the instructor, then performing what they taught you, you start to build crucial links in your brain that increase your ability to focus… and for longer periods of time. 

What’s great is that this intense concentration naturally pours into all other areas of your life. 

Adults report being able to not only focus better at work, but they’re able to release things and clear their mind at the end of the day, as well. Kids benefit too as they pay more attention at school and at home. 

#3 Head to Toe Fitness

Each class is jam-packed with fun and challenging exercises. But because you're so focused on practicing the moves, and having a blast, you hardly notice it. Before you know it, the class is over, and not only did you learn exciting martial arts, you just got a great workout, too! 

Being physically fit also increases energy, attention span and improves your self-esteem.

#4 Community

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.

#5 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.

Muay Thai's roots are said to come from ancient Thai kickboxing that's been passed down from generation to generation. In the late 1800s and early 1900s the martial art underwent dramatic change with Thailand's exposure to British boxing.

Witness the speed and power of the British, they merged those techniques with their own to form the powerful art we know as Muay Thai and teach in every one of our Kalamazoo Muay Thai classes.
