STRONGER. FOCUSED. DRIVEN.
ADULTS | A HAPPIER, HEALTHIER YOU
You are busy. We get it. But you are not any good to your family if you are stressed out always worrying about the struggle between life, job and kids.
Martial arts provides balance to this problem. No matter if you are after physical fitness, self-defense, or even just an athletic social outlet, we provide an environment that is positive and promotes a YES I CAN attitude. Training can take both your home life and work life to that next level. As an added bonus you will likely make friends with people who have common interests? Many of our students state that the time that they spend in class is an oasis in the middle of their lives where they can focus on themselves without feeling selfish or guilty.
These benefits are just the beginning. You’ll develop mental skills, as well as be more focused and competitive both in your business and your personal life. You’ll perform better, feel better and overall just BE better.
No experience necessary!
TEENS | UPGRADE YOURSELF... NOT YOUR PHONE!
TOOLKIT FOR LIFE
Today's world keeps getting tougher for teens. Here at ATA Madison West Martial Arts, it is our goal to create a safe and encouraging learning environment, where they can learn self-defense, discipline and confidence without being ridiculed for their mistakes. This sense of identity will boost their confidence, resulting in increased assertiveness when dealing with the high-pressure situations.
Teens need a place to become independent from their parents, while being challenged to work toward their maximum potential. Our frequenly-hosted activities are an excellent way for teens get involved with peers that share similar goals and standards. By expanding their network with positive influences, they'll be able to maintain accountability and increase their social-skills.
4 REAL BENEFITS OF MARTIAL ARTS CLASS
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says only 1 in 5 adults meet physical activity guidelines set to improve wellbeing. Just as you’d think, physical activity has far reaching benefits. It can help control your weight, reduce risk of cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes, certain cancers, and more. The physical activity alone can help improve your mental health and mood, strengthen your bones and muscles, and improve your chances of living a longer, healthier life.
In adulthood, it can be very tough for some to find peers with mutual interests and outlooks. Martial arts is a great place to meet new people, from all walks of life, and the shared dedication to their art can help bond people. Lifelong friends are made all the time at martial arts gyms; going through difficult trials – such as belt testing – can really help create social bonds between friends. Martial Arts will also help bond with your children, especially if you are participating as family, which we strongly encourage!
Let’s not forget where it all began, defending yourself. Unlike any other form of exercise, with martial arts you learn potentially life-saving self-defense skills.
