At Family Martial Arts, we are not interested in just teaching martial arts, we are concerned about the complete personal development of each student. Individual attention is an aspect of each and every lesson, allowing all students to progress quickly and confidently toward achieving their personal goals.
So much more than just teaching kids self-defense, martial arts develop invaluable real-world skills such as respect, self-discipline, and understanding every reference in The Karate Kid. At ATA Martial Arts, instructors work with kids as young as 4 years old to begin developing the skills and mindset necessary to move through the rainbow of belts.
Big-box gyms filled with elaborate weight-training machines leave trainers at CrossFit Energy shaking their heads. That's because they know that fancy equipment isn't what gets people fit. Instead, their small-group workouts focus on functional movements such as squats and deadlifts, supplemented with bursts of high-intensity aerobic activity. This straightforward approach to exercise yields more effective workouts for participants of all ages and levels, as well as some much needed rest for the hamsters that power all treadmills.
The instructors at U.S. Shuai Chiao Kung Fu Academy are rightfully proud of their educational lineage—most can trace their line of training back to the founders of the fighting styles they teach. Students as young as 4 years old can join in this illustrious tradition, learning from masters of northern shaolin, yang-style tai chi, seven star praying mantis, and pao ting shuai chiao. Whether they focus on the kicks and punches of kung fu or the grappling and wrestling of shuai chiao, students practice an elite sport that demands nothing but the best through tireless training and, unlike baseball, specifically forbids horses from playing in the rulebook.
Jose Dias not only earned his black belt in jujitsu with guidance from a member of the famous Gracie martial-arts family, but he also taught at one of Carlos Gracie Jr.'s top training schools, Gracie Barra Rio de Janeiro. He brings his expertise to Rio Pro Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, where both kids and adults can learn this form of self-defense. Though the school's name highlights jujitsu, instructors also teach several other areas of study. Class options include judo and mixed martial arts, which, despite popular belief, is not a class in which students use kickboxing gloves to punch through wooden boards.
