"We Help Children Succeed"

 We can  improve your child’s ability to focus

Bill Gates and Warren Buffett once where asked in a joint interview  “What is the most important trait for success”, they both said, almost at the same time, “Focus!”

I’s easy to tell a child to focus, it’s a whole other ballgame to teach them what it means to be focused and how they can improve their focus over time. A big part of learning martial arts, for kids, is developing focus.

We also make sure your child can defend themselves by teaching a variety of martial arts, including Karate, Judo, Jujutsu and Tae Kwon Do.


"Punch & Kick Your way To Fitness"

 Learn to punch and kick with authority as you burn more calories per workout than any other aerobic exercise. Jim Graden's Fitness kickboxing classes also develop body coordination, flexibility, balance, focus and self-defense. These are just a few of the added benefits of our kickboxing workouts
