How long will it take to become reasonably proficient?

The time it takes to become proficient varies with each individual. However, we teach a very effective and efficient MMA Self-defense System. Our beginning students are often surprised by their new abilities and accomplishments within just weeks!

Beginning in their very first class, our Junior students learn two effective Self-defense systems called

  1. "Bully Buster"
  2. "Stranger Danger"

You will see your child quickly gain new Self-confidence and focus.

Teen and Adult students learn very effective fighting and self-defense skills. Our Head Instructor Steve Doss is a former Kickboxing and International Rules Fighting Champion. He teaches the most effective skills, makes the classes challenging and fun, and brings out the best in each of our students - including you!

Will my classes be safe?

Absolutely. Impact Martial Arts has gone to great lengths to make it one of the best and safest facilities in the nation. As with any physical sport, injuries can happen, however, all classes are strictly monitored to ensure safety.

Black Belt Club training students are required to purchase the proper Safety Equipment Package at Impact Martial Arts. It includes their Safety Helmet, Safety Handgear and Footgear, Mouthpiece and Carrying Case. Their Training Weapons are also available to them. Black Belt Club students bring this gear with them to class.

Safety and self-control is important in martial arts training.

Will the Martial Arts make my child overly aggressive?

No, just the opposite is true.

We teach our students that Martial Arts is not to be used in aggression, but rather to defend oneself in threatening situations.

Aggressive behavior is channeled into assertiveness to increase your child’s self-esteem, increase their self-discipline, and to build a positive character.

How many classes per week are recommended?

Most students attend classes one to three days a week. However, we let our students attend as many classes each week as they wish from our Class Schedule.

The best way to find if our martial arts Academy is right for you is to take a free Introductory Trial Class:

  • You'll meet your Instructors
  • Experience one of your classes and get all your questions answered
  • You can talk to, and get feedback, from other students and parents...
  • and get the “hands on” experience to choose the best school for you or your child.
