About Our School

The 5 Unexpected, Life-Altering
Effects of Martial Arts.

Hi and welcome!

We’re so happy to share our passion for martial arts with you. At first glance, it may seem like our Herndon Martial Arts school is like every other place to get fit and learn self-defense... but to us it’s a lot more than that. 

As you get into the absolute best shape of your life, some other “hidden” changes happen as well. These changes surprise our new students. When you train in our programs, your life will change in so many amazing ways! 

Here are some of those life-changing benefits students experience…

#1 Skyrocketing Self-Confidence

Something amazing happens when you start to move your body and bring physical fitness into your life...it creates a foundation. A foundation for more happiness, a sense of accomplishment, and a BIG BOOST in confidence! 

You’ll have a group of passionate instructors and classmates right there ready to support you as you push past your limits and strive to reach your martial arts and fitness goals. 

As you progress through class, you will quickly realize how amazing and capable you already are. Knowing that makes you feel more confident and sure of yourself and increases your ability to handle other life challenges that come your way.

Both kids and adults experience this and it’s one of the most rewarding things to see as a teacher. Kids – especially shy and quiet ones - blossom into superb leaders in the classroom, while adults tackle everyday tasks with more energy and a "can do" attitude. 

#2 Laser Like Focus

Martial Arts is so much fun! You’ll learn all sorts of new skills and techniques like striking drills, defensive moves, and even super-secret cardio drills. But... when you learn something new, you have to pay attention to the instructor, then perform what they taught you.

The really cool thing is that this laser like focus naturally pours into all other areas of your life. It’s one of the most amazing side effects of martial arts — many call it getting in the zone, unleashing your untapped potential, or peak performance.

Whatever you want to call it, one thing is for sure — you’ll learn how to listen and concentrate so you can perform tasks you once thought impossible.

#3 Head to Toe Physical Fitness

Whether you’re an elite athlete looking for a competitive edge or if you’re a total beginner and think a burpee is a bodily function, we are happy to meet all of our students at whatever fitness level they are. Our passionate and caring instructors work with YOU to meet your fitness goals.

In a positive and uplifting environment, you’ll get a great workout, practice dynamic martial arts specific conditioning, and have a blast. Before you know it, the class is over, and you not only learned awesome martial arts... 

... you got a fantastic workout, too. Being physically fit boosts self-esteem and happiness and reduces stress and anxiety, as well.

#4 Feeling Like You Belong Here

Many martial artists claim they always felt like an “outsider” before they found Martial Arts. Some of our students just never got into organized sports in school or felt that social clubs weren’t for them.

But the same students that tell us how they “never fit in” or weren’t popular seem to come alive in class! We provide a safe, non-judgmental environment where we all want each other to succeed. We don’t have bullies or students trying to one up each other.

Our members and instructors are all about support and friendship. Kids and adults easily make a lot of friends here and, as a result, our community thrives.

We provide the kind of environment that fosters friendship, encouragement, and motivation. The sense of fulfillment after every class is more than you can imagine.

#5 Fun, Fun and More Fun

Working out and having fun… is that possible? You bet it is because our classes are a blast! Martial arts is a way of life for us and we want you to have a prosperous life too. We work hard, but we play hard too.

Did you know that the average adult laughs only about 20 times per day? That’s it. Our classes strive to improve not only your physical health and fitness, but also your mental well-being.

Laughing and smiling are part of every class here… along with high fives and fist bumps.

Our Herndon kids martial arts after school program gives you a safe, fun learning environment to leave your kids until you get off of work. And because we pick your child up from school, you know he/she is in great hands from the moment the bell rings until the moment you take them home.

In our program, kids get a great mixture of martial arts, healthy exercise, fun activities, focused lessons on life such as respect, discipline, and paying attention, and time to study and get homework done. It's truly the most enriching and fun program out there.

Our classes have been catering to adults of all ages in Herndon with great results. It doesn't matter if you're a beginner either, you're more than welcome here.

Kids Martial Arts

Our Herndon Kids Karate classes are not only geared towards excellent self-defense techniques, striking, and kicking - children ages 3 and up 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 often perform better in school.

We love to keep the kids engaged and attentive with a little bit of play! It's fun for kids, parents, and the instructors. Classes are packed with fun activities and games as kids improve techniques and have a blast!
