About Our School

5 Secret Benefits of Martial Arts That’ll Change Your Life

Welcome!

Bet you thought our Grand Junction martial arts school was just a super cool place to get fit and learn self-defense... the truth is it's so much more.

As you get physically fit, you’ll also experience some changes most of our students are NOT prepared for. Especially our younger students. They are absolutely blown away by the subtle changes that happen when you train in our programs.

Below are a handful of those life-changing experiences people walk away with. We can’t wait to hear what kind of positive experiences you can add to the list as well!

#1 Huge Confidence Gains

Learning new skills and tasks is difficult. One of the first things both children AND adults notice when training is that they don’t get to have super-star kung fu movie style moves without some serious work. As you dig in, and put yourself to the test mentally and physically, you’ll realize something…

You’ll realize that through all of your hard work, by listening to your instructors, and showing up for yourself - you are incredibly capable of smashing your goals. This sense of achievement gives our students HUGE boosts in confidence.

As you learn striking, self-defense moves, or even learn how to do a push up for the first time you’ll proudly pat yourself on the back and feel great about the person you’re becoming. We love to see this trait develop in our students.

#2 Tons of Focus

Because the techniques are challenging, they require your full attention. You have to concentrate hard on listening to the instructor, then performing what they taught you.

The neat thing is that this intense focus naturally pours into all other areas of your life too.

Adults find themselves focusing more easily at work. Kids pay better attention and focus more in school. And all of that turns into greater SUCCESS for YOU.

#3 Totally Fit and Toned

Each class is loaded with fun and challenging exercises. But because you're so focused on performing techniques, and having so much fun, you hardly notice it. Before you know it, the class is over, and you not only learned powerful martial arts, you got a great workout, too.

Being physically fit also boosts energy, mental clarity, and confidence.

#4 Community Matters

What do you think of when you hear the word community? We think of a group of like minded students, struggling through tough training times together, celebrating successes together, and encouraging each other no matter what. We think of teamwork and truly belonging no matter what your background is.

We're a tight-knit group here and our students are all about support. We provide the kind of environment that fosters friendship, encouragement, and motivation.

#5 You'll Have FUN!

You’ll have an absolute blast in class! Sure, sometimes things will be tough and training can get intense. But we like to break up the intense focus and concentration with lots of laughs, encouragement, and light-hearted humor.

Laughing and smiles are part of every class!

When talking about Muay Thai, many compare a well-trained Muay Thai athlete to a knight with weapons and armor. Their hands are said to be daggers or swords. Their feet and knees, axes. And their shins and forearms are impenetrable armor.

That, plus the speed, power, and rich history are what make our Grand Junction Muay Thai classes so effective for getting in shape, self-defense, and inner-focus. Click now to get started today!

You can call our Grand Junction kids martial arts classes "family classes" because the parents of our students love these classes as much as their kids. And why not when the end-result is discipline and great sense of respect for kids of all ages! We focus on a well-rounded student; well behaved everywhere and a good performer in school.

Kids love our martial arts classes because we blend fun activities and games, and still dedicate pure focus time to learn new techniques while perfecting the old ones.
