Thank you for stopping by our Sarasota martial arts school's website. And I'm glad you're reading this far, because I'm about to reveal why our classes are so life-changing for people of all ages in our community...
When you first came to this site, you may have thought martial arts was all about self-defense and getting fit.
While that's definitely a big part, it's not the whole picture.
In reality, it's so much more.
Here are the top 5 things you can expect from our classes, whether you're interested in adults classes for your self, or classes for your child:
Many people these days are lacking passion. Nothing really gets them "excited " anymore. Whether that's because we're constantly surrounded by so much stimulation that we've become "immune " to it... or something else...
... one thing is certain:
Martial arts re-awakens passion. It gets people excited about life. It's one of the greatest things to see as a teacher, when your students eyes start lighting up more and more.
Both children and adults experience this - and it's awesome.
Martial arts is full of challenges, and you have to dig deep and try hard to overcome them. But the harder you work, and the more you practice, the easier those challenges are to overcome.
However, tackling big obstacles has another side effect: it makes you realize how much you're actually capable of. Maybe you're not aware of how strong you really are, or of how much you can achieve.
As you start doing things that you once thought were "impossible," your image of yourself will completely transform. Your confidence and self-esteem will soar.
One of the greatest things about our classes isn't what happens "in " the classes... but what goes on all "around " them. And that's the amazing community we've created here.
Friendships are born all the time, and people are constantly supporting, motivating, and inspiring one another. More experienced students help out the less experienced ones, and everyone is led by our instructors who truly care about your success and the success of all of our students.
That's just how we do things here.
Of course, martial arts is an AWESOME workout. But it's not like other workouts. For starters, it works your entire body: your arms, your legs, your core, and everywhere else. Next, it's not like a traditional workout where you just do pushups and sit-ups and run for a while.
It's a series of challenging techniques that work your body while you have FUN. The moves are so exciting and packed with action that the time flies by. Before you know it, you just got an amazing workout, and your body will reflect it.
People often already get leaner, fitter, and stronger within the first few weeks alone.
These classes are NOT military-style where someone shouts at you and forces you to do a bunch of things you hate! No, these classes are filled with FUN. Laughter can be heard throughout every class, people can be seen smiling, and the time flies.
We want you to enjoy coming here, so we make it as fun and engaging as possible for you. That goes for both kids and adults.

Our Sarasota kids martial arts classes are not only geared towards martial arts / self-defense but also students of all ages are taught self-discipline, focus, and respect. Parents of the students love our classes too because they have seen their kids become better behaved everywhere they go and are often doing better in school.
We love to keep everyone engaged and attentive with a little bit of play. That's why our classes are packed with fun activities and games as kids improve martial art techniques and learn new ones.

We've now got a great solution for you that will not only bring you and your little ones closer - it'll also teach you self-defense, improve your health and fitness, and build great traits like discipline and focus, too.
Introducing: Our Sarasota Family Martial Arts Class! Where moms, dads, and children learn how to kick, punch, block, grapple, wrestle, and more in exciting 1 hour sessions that are packed with energy, excitement, and fun. Click now to learn more!
Strikes like kicks and punches are great when standing face-to-face against an opponent. Joint locks will suppress anyone too close to hit. And using your opponent's own force against them will leave anyone off balance and stunned.
With Hapkido, you'll become a master at all of these skills. That's because it's one of the most well-rounded martial arts on the planet. And as your skills grow, your body will become stronger, leaner, and more coordinated and balanced. Click for details.
Relax your body. Strengthen your muscles. Tone your physique. In our Power Yoga classes, you'll do all this and more. Every class is a blend of soothing meditation... stress-relieving stretches... and exercise for a strong, healthy body.

Have an injury or body pain? We'll help customize poses just for you. All in all, it's a calming, strengthening experience like no other.
