About Our School

The 5 Unexpected, Life-Altering
Effects of Martial Arts.

Hi and Welcome!

We’re thrilled to share our passion for martial arts with you. For some, our Pompton Plains Martial Arts school might seem like all the rest – just another place to get fit and learn self-defense - but to us it’s so much more!

There’s no doubt that you’ll get into the absolute best shape of your life, but you’ll see some other “subtle” changes start to happen too. More often than not, they’re life-changing to our new students. When you train in our programs, your life will never be the same again...in many good ways!

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

#1 Tremendous Confidence

Martial arts is tough. Whether you just want to stay physically fit or you’re in it to win it and become one of the world’s leaders in martial arts, doing something new is challenging both physically and mentally.

But...as you push yourself and let your instructors guide and cheer you on, you’ll get a HUGE boost in confidence! You’ll also get in amazing shape and feel good about yourself and body. Know what that means? Even more confidence... and happiness!

You’ll be able to smile big and feel proud as you achieve things you once thought impossible. Even if that means completing one single push up, perfecting a difficult new technique, or simply watching your kids progress through their training.

#2 Single Pointed Focus

Focus your mind grasshopper... as you listen intently and concentrate on what your instructor tells you, then performing the techniques, you’ll improve your ability to focus and absolutely crush your martial arts and fitness goals. 

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

Studies have shown that just a half hour of physical fitness improves focus, increases problem solving ability, and 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 Family and Friends

We're a tight-knit group here. And our members and instructors are all about support and friendship.

We provide the kind of environment that fosters friendship, encouragement, and motivation. It's truly a great experience to share and care.

#5 Breakup with Boredom, Have FUN!

Stuck in a fitness rut or tired of hitting up bootcamp style classes just to be yelled at on your personal time? Ugh, who can blame you... luckily our classes are NOTHING like that. Action-packed and totally fun, focused on your success, and always changing. No two workouts are the same and we use positive motivation.

No military style yelling or body shaming, ever.

Both kids and adults both work hard, but also play hard too. Laughing, smiles, and high fives are part of every class.

Ready to try us out? We’ll make it super easy for you.

All of us here look forward to meeting you in person!

Our kids martial arts classes help kids in lots of profound ways. In fact, self-defense is just the beginning. Mastering martial arts takes dedication & commitment - two traits that your child will use in all other areas of their life too.

It also takes focus, respect & attention: traits that will help improve their grades, and make them more eager to help around the house. Plus, kids have a TON of fun every class. Your kid is guaranteed to have the time of his or her life, and make a lot of great friends along the way.

No one messes with someone who knows Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. And there 's a good reason for it... When someone from any other martial art falls on their back - it 's game over. When someone who knows BJJ falls on their back - the fun is just getting started.

Learn unstoppable grappling & submission techniques... get in the best shape of your life... and meet other like-minded people who thrive off of the intensity of BJJ. It's like a family here. And if you 're a BJJ-kind-of-person - you'll fit right in.

We have a blend of unique elements in all our Kids Fitness classes; techniques, discipline, respect and fun. The outcome: disciplined kids who are well-behaved with a great sense of respect everywhere they go. Parents of the students love our classes too for they have seen their kids perform better in school.

All our classes are filled with fun activities and games. Kids are taught new martial art techniques as well as being helped to improve and master old ones.
