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 Merrick 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!

#1 Tons of Confidence

Martial arts is tough. Whether it’s strictly to get fitter or you’re in it to win it and become one of the world’s leaders in martial arts, trying something new is challenging both physically and mentally.

But...as you push yourself and listen to your instructors as they cheer you on you will get a HUGE surge of confidence! You’ll also get in amazing shape which brings better body confidence right along with it.

You’ll be able to pat yourself on the back with pride as you achieve things you once thought impossible. Even if that means completing one single push up, perfecting a difficult new technique, or even watching your kids progress through their training.

#2 Better Focus

Taekwondo is 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 karate or taekwondo - 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 Boosted Physical Fitness

Whether you’re an elite athlete looking for a competitive edge or if you’re a total beginner and think a burpee is a bodily function, we take pride in meeting all of our students where they are. Our passionate and caring instructors work with YOU to meet your fitness goals.

In a positive and motivating environment, you’ll get a great workout, practice dynamic martial arts specific conditioning, and have a blast. Before you know it, the class is over, and you not only learned powerful martial arts...

... you got a great workout, too. Being physically fit boosts energy, mental clarity, and confidence as well.

#4 Gain a Sense of Community

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 that social clubs weren’t for them.

But the 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-judgemental environment where we all want each other to succeed. We don’t have bullies or students trying to one up each other. 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 Breakup with Boredom, Have FUN!

Stuck in a fitness rut or tired of hitting up bootcamp style classes just to be yelled at on your personal time? Ugh, who can blame you... luckily our classes are NOTHING like that. Action-packed and totally fun, focused on your success, and always changing. No two workouts are the same and we use positive motivation.

No military style yelling or body shaming, ever.

Both kids and adults both work hard, but also play hard too. Laughing, smiles, and high fives are part of every class.
