About Our School

The 5 Life-Changing Gifts of
Martial Arts. For Kids AND Adults.

Dear Friend,

Our Safford Martial Arts school might seem like any other place to get fit and learn self-defense.

Well, we do help people with that, but there are some more "subtle" things that happen when you train here.

Here are just a few of those “subtle” but transformational things people walk away with...

#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 Full On Focus

Focus your mind grasshopper. As you concentrate on listening to your instructor, then perform what they taught you, you’ll improve your ability to focus and absolutely smash your martial arts and fitness goals.

The cool thing is that this laser like focus naturally pours into all other areas of your life too.

Studies have shown that just 30 minutes of physical fitness improves focus, heightens problem solving ability, and even boosts memory in both kids and adults.

#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 Community Connections

Get ready because your circle of influence is about to grow... big time! We're a tight-knit group here and everyone is all about support and friendship. As you struggle through tough training times, and smile through wins and victories, you’ll have your martial arts family right there to help and cheer you on. 

Friendship, encouragement, and high fives are part of every class. As you train together, you and your classmates will form an amazing bond. It's just an indescribable feeling.

#5 Loads of Fun

Working out and having fun? Yup! 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? Our classes strive to make you a high achiever in every way - including your mental well-being.

Laughing and smiling are part of every class here, as are high fives and TONS of support.

So what do you say? Ready to give us a shot?

Our martial arts summer camp has lots of fun, games and martial arts. But it's also about helping kids see that with the right attitude, discipline, and focus they can accomplish anything. Click to learn more.
