About Our School

Hi there and welcome,

We’re so happy to share our passion for fitness with you! You may know us from our dynamic and insanely cool Kent Martial Arts School - but we saw a need for fitness minded folks to have a place with good energy to train at, and meet new fit friends in a safe environment. 

Imagine a place where you can feel comfortable knowing that the workouts are tailored to meet your needs. An environment where you don’t have to wait to use sweaty gym equipment or feel like you’re competing with others. A center that’s perfect for you to release tension, get in amazing shape, and have a blast after dealing with daily struggles. 

Well, that’s us! We understand your need to be SUPPORTED and to get fit on your terms. 

Whether you want to shed some extra weight, tone up, or simply do something new and FUN, this program is perfect for adults at any age and fitness level. Especially beginners!

You’ll feel amazing and we’re excited to be part of your positive life-changing fitness journey. Below are a few additional ways your life is about to get awesome with us… 

#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 Spot on Focus

Martial arts is demanding at times and requires your full attention. As you concentrate hard on listening to the instructor, then performing what they taught you, you start to build important links in your brain that improve your ability to focus better and for longer periods of time. 

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

Adults report being able to not only concentrate better at work, but they’re able to clear their mind at the end of the day a lot more easily. Kids benefit too as they pay more attention at school and at home… and that means they’re more productive. 

#3 Total Body Fitness

Each class is loaded with fun and challenging techniques, cardio drills and heart-pumping exercise. But because you're so focused on your workout, and having so much fun, you hardly notice it. Before you know it, the class is over, and you not only learned powerful self-defense moves, you got an incredible full body workout, too!

Being physically fit and mentally actives also boosts energy, clarity, and happiness.  

#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 that social clubs weren’t for them.

But the same students who tell us how they “never fit in” or weren’t popular seem to come alive in our classes! We provide a safe, positive, enriching environment where we all want each other to succeed. We don’t have bullies or students trying to one up each other.

Everyone is helpful and encouraging. Both kids and adults become friends with other members, which then makes our martial arts family tight-knit and strong.

We provide the kind of environment that fosters friendship, motivation and success. It's something really cool to be a part of.

#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.
