Remember "The Answer?" Here It Is:

We Treat You Like You

What Does that Mean and Why Does it Help?

Here's the deal: we aren't all equal.

To some that may sound insensitive (and to others obvious), but it's true. Some of us are tall, some short, some easily prone to extra weight, and some can eat like an 11 year old and not gain a pound. So applying a one size fits all solution to your health and fitness goals will not work. You need a tailored solution, but like most people, you probably don't have the time or energy to seek out and implement some "perfect" plan that'll be the silver bullet you've always wanted. Chances are, the perfect plan doesn't even exist. 

So what should you do? Start a fad diet? Join a gym you know you won't go to? If you're like most people, the answer is just put it off - meaning nothing in your life will change. 

We Get to Know You; the Real You

Our instructors have been teaching Martial Arts for years. They've literally seen it all. So they're really, really good at helping people feel comfortable in the group atmosphere of class, while still setting proper expectations at the individual level.

Everyone in every class is looking for something different, and Martial Arts is the only activity that even comes close to being able to help everyone. Our instructors have a natural knack for helping you take the new Martial Arts skills you've learned and apply them to you and your goals. The result is that you finally get a plan that works for you.

Our Holistic Approach

Most fitness and health programs focus on one area and try to "fix" something, isolating "it" from the rest of "you." The problem with that is that even if it's successful, it won't stick.

We take a holistic approach, meaning we help you address what health promotion professionals call the....

The 6 Dimensions of Wellness

  • Physical

    People focus on this a lot, and if you’re looking for physical change, you’ll see it. We WILL make you stronger, faster, more flexible, and in the process you’ll start to look better and feel better.

  • Emotional

    So you can defend yourself from “bad guys.” Cool, but so what? What about the daily challenges we all face like judgement from others, challenging work situations, and family stress? Being emotionally fit is vital.

  • Spiritual

    We don’t mean religious (nothing about our classes is religious), we mean spiritual. Are you able to connect with your inner sense of peace and calm? Or do you feel like having control is challenging? Our classes will help create a strong inner self through hard work and overcoming challenges.

  • Environmental

    It may seem strange to think of a Martial Arts class helping you with your Environmental Wellness, but your environment often shapes not only the way you look at the world, but how you interact with it as well. Regularly attending a class where you step into a culture of success and positivity will absolutely help.

  • Social

    Let’s face it: it’s not always easy to make friends. For some reason, we only think about kids needing social interaction – but adults need it too! We’re not supposed to be isolated or limited to a small circle. Our classes and school events allow you to interact, make friends, learn and contribute, and all of these things will dramatically improve your quality of life.

  • Mental

    Staying mentally sharp is often the difference between life and death in a self defense situation. Now, you may not face a situation like that, but the mental benefits of training regularly will spill over into your life outside of class. Our students say they feel more aware and connected in their daily lives. 

We Bring Out Your Best

Don't get me wrong; just because we cater to what you NEED, doesn't always mean you'll get what you WANT. There will be times when it will be hard. You'll be physically and mentally challenged. You'll want to give up, and you might even wish you had signed up to do something easier. But it will be worth it. Every student who is in class with us has learned that the things they THINK they want are usually the EASY things, and that those rarely get them the results they truly want. It's instant gratification (sitting at home in front of the TV) vs. long term success (coming to Martial Arts class).

You Don't Have to Be Great to Start

Worried that it'll be too hard? That you might not be able to do everything we ask? That you'll sweat, feel uncomfortable, be sore, and generally just not be good at it?

You're right.

It'll all be really, really different, unimaginably challenging, but it will be worth it!

And Honestly, You'll Love the Process

You Have to Start to Be Great.

Success Isn't Easy.

So Take It Step By Step:

  • 1

    Take Action

    Sign up for our No Obligation Trial (or fill out the form if you have a question).

  • 2

    Be Honest with yourself

    While you're taking our Trial, be honest. Will this really help you? Is what we're teaching something that you can stick with? If so, will you see the kind of benefits you're looking for?

  • 3

    Make a Commitment

    If you like the Trial, don't hesitate. Sign up as a regular student. Making a strong, focused commitment is the first step to success. If you don't like the trial, you won't hurt our feelings. But if you do, take advantage of our program and start getting the results you deserve!

  • 4

    Take it Into the World

    All of the good habits you're forming in our class - the effort, the focus, the determination, all of those things grow even stronger when you apply them to your life outside of our school. Take that intensity you bring to your Martial Arts techniques and apply it to your work. Take that patience that you're developing when learning something new in class and apply it to your home life. We're not trying to be preachy, but in our experience, that's what really takes people to the next level.

We don't take this lightly. Those 4 Steps aren't easy.

But if you can just take step #1...

We'll Help You the Rest of the Way.

So Take Step #1, and Try Our No Obligation Trial:

What's the Catch?

Nothing. Seriously.

We’re REALLY good at what we do, and you’re going to see very quickly if our classes are right for you.

If not, no problem. In fact, we’ll even try to use what we learned about you during your time with us to suggest an activity that will better suit your needs.

But if it IS Right...

It Could Be the Best Thing

We Think It's Great, But What About People Like You?

Michael Anderson

Always have respected Master Eddie Thomas... Got my Black Belt from him at the age of 11 years old.. Some of the best memories of my life and have tried to use what I learned from Eddie and apply it to my everyday life..

This program instills confidence with a focus on respect all while disguising it in fun, camaraderie, and great exercise!! Thank you for allowing my son and I to be a part of your program!

Our family started our journey to black belt 7 months ago. In that time we have become closer to each other, yet stronger and more confident individually, stronger both physically and as a family unit, and healthier and more energetic. If we have come so far already as purple belts I can only imagine what we will become together as black belts...thank you AFK Salem
