I frequent the adult kickboxing classes and have a great time! The instructors are super friendly and helpful! Classes tend to last 50ish minutes and 25 of that is spent doing bag work. Then there is an extended warm up and cool down on either side. These classes are definitely newbie-friendly, as they are more fitness/exercise-oriented than skill/technique-oriented. The classes can feel a little redundant, so I like when they incorporate different moves and conditioning exercises throughout the class. Thanks guys

I've been waiting to write a review. After 4 weeks of kickboxing and one week of my kids taking classes I'd say we, as a family, are hooked. I've never had a better workout than I do during the kickboxing classes. I enjoy the instructors and the different variations they provide. As for my children, they are completely thrilled to be doing something new, staying active, meeting new people and gaining confidence. I truly hope this is a long term thing for all of us!

I have been attending Champions since April, and I have fallen in love with the adult kickboxing class! It's the first time that I have ever been excited to go workout! I'm actually bummed if I have to miss a class. The instructors are very friendly and really help push you to keep going! They switch up the workouts so you're never bored, and let's face it the 80's rock music is just a bonus! It's a great group of people, a great atmosphere, and a great way to stay active and healthy! Thanks guys!

Of 3 local martial arts facilities, Champions was the only one to give me good prompt information, professional customer service, and a welcome feeling. My son is almost 5 years old and has been welcomed into his class by staff and students alike, and LOVES it. The atmosphere, structure, and quality of instruction are AMAZING. We’re happy to be part of the Champions family!

We love Champions! My son has been a student here for 2.5 years (since he was 3) and he's learned so much. The entire staff really cares about the kids. They have a lot of fun and get their energy out while learning. The little ninja's classes are 40 minutes and take place every evening (there is one Saturday morning as well) so you have a choice to bring your child which ever day/time works best for your schedule. It's really helpful to us as a large, busy family to have the flexibility. They even off afterschool care, camps, and parents night out. We have only done the PNO so far but our son has a BLAST. He talks about it for days after.

We cannot state enough what an amazing opportunity and experience this has been for our son Isaac.
The staff are amazing with the children and teach them not just MMA but a great deal of self control and respect.
I really don't pay for just martial arts training, I pay for Isaac to learn respect, control, working together and so much more!
He has so much fun and loves the teachers.

The Positive Effects of Martial Arts for a Child in School

The Positive Effects of Martial Arts for a Child in School

Grade school can be quite the experience for any child. It is a place where a child not
only learns academically but one where a child must learn to socialize and function in
the world. Unfortunately, there are a lot of negative experiences that a child may
have when going through school. Whatever those experiences may be, it would be a
good idea to have a child participate in martial arts classes. Doing so will give them
the tools they need to survive the school experience. The benefits associated with
taking martial arts classes are essential for them to be able to have a positive
experience in school.

Helps them earn better grades in school

Getting good grades is reflective of a child’s comprehension of the material. But, it is
also indicative of their discipline and responsibility traits. Through martial arts,
students are to learn the fundamentals of stretch and physical routines. They also
learn to become disciplined with practice and keeping up with their cleanliness of
uniforms. Children learn how to be punctual and can focus their daily thoughts on the
tasks at hand. Thus, being able to exhibit these positive traits will translate to better
grades as schooling requires the proficiency of these characteristics.

Gives them the confidence to stand up to bullies

Bullying is a very prominent and unfortunate experience that many children will
either witness or become victims of in their lifetimes. Being a part of martial arts can
give children the strength and confidence that they need to stand up to these
negative individuals. Not only will they learn about self-defense strategies, they will
be able to feel assertive and courageous. Possessing self-confidence is the number
one way for a child to be able to stand up for him/herself in any threatening
situation. Through martial arts, they will learn that not all conflicts have to be
physical. They will possess the mature mindset to tackle any conflict with assurance
and pride.

Gives them the ability to make friends

Having friends and keeping them can be the big difference between a positive and
negative school experience for children. They will latch onto people who share
common interests with them and feel devastated when those relationships disappear.
However, for children who regularly practice martial arts, they have a different
capacity to make and keep friends in their circle. Besides making friends in the
martial arts classes themselves, children are able to easily socialize and collaborate
with other students at school. They instill a lot of the same discipline and traits they
learn from martial arts in their everyday lives. For instance, they may be first to
initiate a conversation with quiet students because they feel confident in themselves
to do so.

Being a part of something special such as martial arts can be greatly impactful for
children. Especially when it comes to school, children can gain invaluable skills and
behaviors that will allow them to have more successful experiences in social settings.
Although school is meant to teach them about a variety of things, having martial arts
as a supplement can significantly affect the way they approach schooling and their
overall experiences.
