A Chat with Emergent Martial Arts
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Emergent offers unique skills and fitness training methodology for all levels, beginner to advanced. The self-mastery emphasis of traditional martial arts meets the real-world self-defense and pro-fighting effectiveness of “MMA”. We pride ourselves on being the highest quality kickboxing program in Calgary: fun, fitness, AND functional technique! In kickboxing, we combine the most effective techniques from a range of proven striking-based martial arts such as Muay Thai, Boxing and Karate. Kickboxing is an amazing workout! However, some schools sacrifice the quality of technique in the name of fitness - not us! After just a few classes, you will feel confident in your kickboxing skills and general badass-ery. We stand out through our commitment to one-on-one coaching: we are not a typical class that has one teacher trying to teach thirty people – you won’t fall through the cracks. In fact, our advanced students are required to attend and help out with our beginners. What this means is much more one on one attention, which greatly increases the productivity of your time with us. You will learn much faster, and be able to do much more than most students in other classes.
What's one tip for first-time students that will make them feel like veterans?
Just show up! That is always the hardest but most important part. If you have always wanted to try something like kickboxing, but have been too nervous or shy to come to a class, we hear you – we all have all been there, and so we strive to create an open and welcoming atmosphere for the most important people in our school: the newbies.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Our primary goal is the introduction of ordinary people to their extraordinary selves through martial arts. Not only do our students get in shape and learn effective combat technique, they find that their lives are richer in every area through walking the warrior path.
What do you love most about your job?
We love watching people surprise themselves! When our students achieve more than they thought they could, whether it be in the area of fitness, technique, or even making new friends, we are inspired to reach more students with our unique program and team environment.
