I've gone here for a few weeks now, and I still love being there every time. I've done the fitness kickboxing classes and tried out the combat kickboxing and BJJ classes as well. As other reviews mention, it is an incredibly supportive and non-judgmental environment. I always feel welcome walking in, more so than any other gym setting I've ever been in. Prices are reasonable and the people are awesome!

Stopped in to train while in town for business. I must say I was extremely impressed with the professionalism of the staff. It was only equaled by their friendliness and level of expertise when teaching classes. Definitely a top notch school.

A healthy weight means a healthier life

A healthy weight means a healthier life

There’s no denying that childhood obesity has become a problem. Kids spend their time playing video games instead of running around outside – and the lack of activity has caused many kids to gain weight.

And the thing is, obesity isn’t just a problem in terms of kids’ appearance. It can impact nearly every area of their lives.

For example:

  • It makes them more susceptible to diabetes and other diseases
  • Kids who are overweight are more likely to be overweight as adults
  • Obesity is linked to a high risk of heart disease
  • Kids who are overweight struggle with self-esteem and feelings of self-worth
  • Overweight kids may be teased or bullied at school

Some kids are naturally thin. But others need regular physical activity to keep their weight in check. We’ve found that our martial arts classes help kids shed extra pounds and keep them off.

Let’s start with the physical component of it. You probably know that we’ve got to burn more calories than we take in to lose weight. Martial arts classes provide an intense workout, one that burns a ton of calories.

There’s another element, too. It has to do with teaching kids to think of the food they eat as the fuel for their bodies. A person who eats a healthy diet has more strength and stamina than someone who lives on junk food.

When kids ask our instructors what they eat, they tell them. They’ll talk to kids about nutrition and the role it plays in their practice of martial arts.

The takeaway here is that taking martial arts classes with us helps kids attack the obesity issue from both the physical and mental perspective. When they understand that moving their bodies makes them strong and lean and that the food they eat plays a role too, they also learn healthy habits. They learn to appreciate their bodies for what they can do.

If you’re worried about your child’s weight – or if you just want to make sure that they understand how their bodies work and what fuel they need – click here to sign up for a trial membership now.

Until next time,
