The True Meaning of Martial Arts

Hi there and welcome!

Thanks so much for visiting our Arlington martial arts school's website. It's great to have you!

I wanted to take a moment to tell you what martial arts means to us. Self-defense and fitness are important aspects of martial arts... but we’ve found something crucial and life-changing to training as well.

It may come as a surprise when you hear it, but, most people think martial arts is about learning to "fight" or "defend." While that's a powerful tool to keep you and your family safe from harm... it’s not the only aspect of it.

So what is the "true" meaning of martial arts? Balance.

We don't mean being able to stand on one leg… even though there will be plenty of that in class! We mean inner-balance: the connection of body, mind, and spirit into one force.

In today's fast-paced world, these three parts of ourselves have gotten very unbalanced. We spend all day stimulating our minds with computers, TV, media, and more. But while our minds are being stimulated, our bodies are left out. The more we focus just on the mind, the less we focus on the body.

This goes for kids, too! With video games, mobile devices, and more - the connection between mind and body has never been more off.

Because of this, many of us feel "uncentered," including children. We can't focus and achieve as much as we're capable of. That's where martial arts comes in.

When you're training in our classes, on the surface it may seem like you're just having fun, getting a great workout, and learning challenging, exciting new techniques. Which is true!


But beneath all that, we're also working on your connection to body, mind, and spirit - helping you and your kids become stronger on the inside, too.

Kids build stronger characters, fast. They're able to focus, pay attention better, and respond to tasks when they are given…the first time around. Children find that they they feel happier, have more energy, and help out around the house more as well.

Adults also improve focus, feel more confident, and become more vibrant.

Students report that when they have the mind-body balance, and are able to conquer a new task such as martial arts training, things just feel better overall.

That's what martial arts is all about, balance. We're so passionate about bringing this wonderful gift to our community and couldn’t be happier that you’re interested in joining us.

Try our new, balanced approach to your routine for phenomenal results while experiencing tremendous life-long positive changes.
