Kids Martial Arts

For thousands of years, martial arts have been used to not just teach children self-defense... but to teach them powerful skills that they'll use for their entire lives.

Respect, focus, concentration, and discipline are just a few of these skills. These help children at home, in school, and eventually - out in the “real world.” Help your child develop these amazing traits today - just click now to get started!

Adult Martial Arts

Learn self-defense as you engage in powerful, time-tested techniques... Feel great as you get an awesome workout, and punch and kick stress out of your body... And make friends as you practice alongside other positive, like-minded people who are all set on success.

In addition, you'll learn ancient philosophies that have brought people peace and tranquility in their lives for literally thousands of years. Martial arts is a lot fun - but it's also very deep and profound. Get the perfect balance of both in our St. Louis classes!

After School

Enroll your child in an enriching, fun after school program - that provides transportation! We pick your child up from school, and bring them right to our dojo for an afternoon full of martial arts... fun & games... exercise... homework... and lessons on life.

Kids learn firsthand about respect, discipline, focus and paying attention - while having a great time. So if you have to work late, and need a safe, structured, and fun program to take care of your kids... Click now to learn even more about our awesome program.

About Our School

Dear neighbor,

My name is Kelly Schmidt, head instructor of our martial arts school here in St. Louis. For some time now, we've dedicated our lives to bringing the physical - and spiritual - benefits of martial arts to our community.

Through classes geared for men and women of all ages, shapes and sizes, our school itself has become a community of learning and growth.

We'd love nothing more than for you to become a part of it. That way you too can enrich your life, learn self-defense, and get in great shape too.

Together, these three elements lead to a happier, healthier life.

After all, for thousands of years, martial arts has been a tool for inner-growth and development. The hard work and patience required to perfect each move builds discipline, focus and determination.

The desire to advance through the ranks develops goal setting and ambition. The rush of passing tests, and seeing how far you've come builds confidence and pride.

And the increased energy that comes with getting in good physical shape gives you a boost to bring even more fulfilling activities into your life. But it doesn't stop there. You also learn self-defense to keep yourself and your loved ones safe and sound. And while you may never have to use these skills in a real-life situation - just knowing that you CAN protect yourself will give you peace of mind.

St. Louis Martial Arts

In fact, the confidence you'll exude is enough to diffuse most situations before they ever arise. After all, attackers like to focus in on weak individuals. When you emit strength, confidence and pride - it's enough to keep most of them at bay.

Helping you succeed in martial arts is the only goal of our St. Louis program. Everyone here - each of our martial arts instructors - is passionate about helping you succeed, have fun, and enjoy the time you spend here.

So come on by and try out the program that's best-suited for you. You can learn more about the classes our St. Louis school offers, and call us to register for the one that's right for you.

See you soon,
Kelly Schmidt

If you're looking for an adult martial arts class with more of an “edge”, our Krav Maga classes might be just what you've been looking for. Discover a martial art that was founded as a solution for two simple problems: self-defense and fitness.

When the state of Israel was first declared a country in 1948, its people immediately found themselves surrounded by enemies. They needed to teach their populace self-defense for combat, and get them in shape in case of attack. Krav Maga solved both of these problems. Because it works with your body's natural instincts, it's easy to learn. And the fast, forceful motions build muscle and stamina.
