About Our School

The 5 Ways We Change Lives,
For Both Kids & Adults.

Hi and Welcome!

We’re thrilled to share our passion for martial arts with you! For some, our Kenilworth Martial Arts school might seem like just another run-of-the-mill place to get fit and learn self-defense... but to us it’s SO much more.

As you get into the absolute best shape of your life, some other “subtle” changes are happening, as well. These changes really surprise our new students. When you train in our programs, your life will NEVER be the same again...in a really good way!

Here are just a few of those life-changing benefits that students experience...

#1 Confidence Booster

Learning new skills and trying new techniques are challenging! But when you commit and keep at a challenge, and come out on top, you realize you're stronger and more capable than you ever thought possible!

You’ll feel more confident when you see that on a regular basis and more sure of your ability to handle any life challenge that comes up. Both kids and adults feel their self-esteem and confidence soar quickly!

#2 Laser Like Focus

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

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

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

#3 Break Through Physical Fitness Barriers

No matter what your starting level is, you will get better with these classes! Each class is loaded with challenging and fun techniques that will teach you powerful martial arts and give you an amazing workout.

Since you are measured by your own personal success, our students see improvements quickly and are able to celebrate their personal victories along the way.

Our functional, body weight focused training helps you move your body and uses everything from your head to your toes. These workouts are high-energy, crazy fun, and get you running lean in no time.

Plus...being physically fit boosts energy, mental clarity, and confidence as well!

#4 Circle of Friends

Even if you’re an introvert, our kickboxing classes seem to make shy and quiet people come alive and shine. We provide a safe, non-intimidating environment where we all want each other to succeed. We don’t have people trying to outdo each other or staring at you if you don’t look a certain way. 

Everyone is super friendly and supportive. Making friends with the other members is effortless, which then makes our fitness-minded family thrive.

We provide an environment that fosters friendship, motivation and success. It's something quite empowering to see and feel.

#5 Guaranteed FUN!

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

Laughing, smiles and fist bumps are part of every class!
