About Our School

The 5 Reasons Our Martial Arts Classes Are
So Life-Changing, For Both Kids & Adults.

Welcome to the family!

Our Seminole Martial Arts school might just seem like a place to get fit and learn self-defense... but to us it’s so much more. When you train with us you’ll experience a place where you fit in, no matter what your background or fitness experience is.

You’ll get into phenomenal shape, learn exciting self-defense skills, and experience personal growth that has improved the lives of each of our students. The physical transformation you’ll enjoy is fantastic, but the mindset and attitude you’ll develop is what’s truly amazing.

We’ll help you get next level fit, but below are a few of the more subtle changes our students experience in our classes as well.

#1 Sizzlin’ Self-Confidence

Something amazing happens when you start to move your body and incorporate physical fitness into your life...it creates an anchor. An anchor for more happiness, for a feeling of accomplishment, and a really big boost in confidence! You’ll have a network of passionate instructors and classmates ready to support you as you strive to bust through your martial arts and fitness goals.

As you progress through class you will realize how amazing and capable you can be. Realizing that makes you feel more confident and sure of your ability to handle whatever other challenges life throws your way.

Both kids and adults experience this and it’s one of the greatest things to see as a teacher. Wallflower students blossom into dynamic leaders in the classroom while adults tackle everyday tasks with gusto and a "can do" attitude.

#2 Better Focus

Martial Arts are so much fun! You’ll learn all sorts of new skills and techniques like striking drills, defensive moves, and even super-secret functional cardio drills. But...when you learn a new skill 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 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.

Whatever you want to call it, one thing is for certain - you’ll learn how to focus your mind to perform tasks you once thought impossible.

#3 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!

#4 Community Matters

What do you think of when you hear the word community? We think of a group of like minded students, struggling through tough training times together, celebrating successes together, and encouraging each other no matter what. We think of teamwork and truly belonging no matter what your background is.

We're a tight-knit group here and our students are all about support. We provide the kind of environment that fosters friendship, encouragement, and motivation.

#5 You'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.

Come check out our Seminole Kung Fu classes that our students just can't get enough of. Most people think Kung Fu is only about self-defense... but the truth is, self-defense is only the beginning.

Through working with your qi (your life force) your mind will become more clear & focused... your heart will open... and your body will become lean, toned, powerful & healthier than ever. It's not just self-defense. It's life-changing.

Both students and their parents love these Seminole 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.

Seminole Kickboxing is such a powerful way to lose weight, get fit, and get in shape! These classes develop strength and stamina in your arms, your core, and your legs. That's because every kickboxing move works your entire body. Even a punch requires the twisting of the hips, which builds core strength, and the stability of the legs, increasing strength overall.

Amazing bodyweight exercises, passionate staff to push you and motivate you to do your best all wrapped into one action-packed experience - this program is definitely a must have for achieving head turning results!
