About Our School

5 Life-Changing Benefits of Martial Arts - For Kids & Adults

Dear friend,

Hello and welcome to our La Verne martial arts school! We’re so glad that you are thinking of joining our wonderful martial arts community. We believe that martial arts is more than fitness and combat...

It’s a mind set, a way of life and a wonderful way to make people better on the inside as well as the outside!

And we’re not the only ones! For thousands of years, people have held this belief about martial arts and have seen it in action. They've developed stronger characters, experienced more joy in life, and, of course, learned powerful self-defense and become very physically fit.

Here are 5 things you can expect from our classes that you may have not realized before today...

#1: You’re Confidence Will Soar

Martial arts is tough, but, like with most challenges…when you struggle a little and are guided in a supportive way by passionate instructors, the end result is phenomenal!

You might even get frustrated at times when you can't do them perfectly from the start.

But don’t worry! With practice, you WILL master these techniques, and then you'll look back and realize how much you've accomplished. When you do this, your confidence soars.

In fact, this often happens within just a week or two of training!

#2: Focusing Will Become Easier

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.

Which means you get a lot of practice focusing your mind and your body! This ability tends to pour into all areas of your life as well such as work, home, and other activities you enjoy.

Adults find themselves focusing and crushing work goals more easily while kids pay better attention and focus more in school.

#3: You’ll Get in Great Shape

Physical fitness is so crucial for a happy life. When you're fit, you have more energy, can think more clearly, and feel happier overall.

A big portion of our classes is spent on improving your fitness. But we do it in a "functional" way that helps you in your everyday life. As you get fitter, you also get more coordinated, balanced, and flexible.

#4: You’ll Gain Community & Friendship

a big part of our martial arts school is our community. Our passionate and caring instructors offer guidance and support as do senior students and their families.

We provide the kind of environment that fosters friendship, encouragement, and motivation. It's truly great to experience.

For example, if you need help with a technique, a more experienced fellow member is as likely to help you as our instructors are. That's just how we do things here.

#5: You’ll Have FUN!

High five! Our classes are super fun. While kids and adults both work hard, we also play hard. Laughing and smiles are part of every class.

All work and no play never served anyone! And it doesn't serve us either.

That's why every class is injected with fun and excitement. You'll laugh, smile, and the time will fly by with fun.

Ready to come give us a try? We'd love to have you!

Simply scroll up and click the program that you feel is the best fit for you or your family.

You can learn all about the program and even register for one of our amazing web specials right on the site!

If you still have questions, or would prefer to sign up over the phone or in person, don't hesitate to give us a call: (909)593-1733. We're here to help.

Kids Martial Arts

You can call our La Verne 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.

La Verne Fitness kickboxing is such a powerful way to lose weight, get fit, and get in shape. These cardio kickboxing classes develop strength and stamina in your arms, your core, and your legs. Thats because every kickboxing move works almost your entire body. Even a punch requires the twisting of the hips, which builds core / ab strength, and the stability of the legs, increasing strength there as well.

When you combine that with our great body-weight exercises, passionate staff who will push you and motivate you to do your best, and fun atmosphere, this program is definitely a great one for achieving your results.
