Asian Sun Martial Arts and Fitness helps students cultivate a well-rounded self-defense system by providing instruction in tae kwon do, karate, kung fu, kickboxing, and certified Krav Maga. At the core of each class are fitness and self-defense. Instructors teach students of all fitness levels and who range from 2.5-year-olds to senior citizens. Asian Sun Marital Arts and Fitness' team of expert black belt instructors have also boosted the popularity of its Cardio Fit Kickboxing classes, which have sculpted lean, strong muscles for participants since 1994.
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.
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.
At Sylvania Family Karate, third-degree black belt Randy Kopke teaches Okinawan goju ryu karate to an array of fist sizes. During his adult and youth karate classes—the latter of which can accommodate ages as young as four—he helps improve students' discipline and focus while teaching them to adopt a more positive attitude. To simplify matters, he outfits each student with their own karate uniform.
