We’re so happy to share our passion for martial arts with you. For some, our Fort Collins Martial Arts school might just seem like a place to get fit and learn self-defense... but to us it’s so much more.
While you get into the absolute best shape of your life, some other “subtle” changes happen as well. These changes are mind blowing to our new students. When you train in our programs, your life will never be the same again...in a really good way!
Here are a handful of those life-changing benefits students experience…
Learning new skills and tasks is difficult. One of the first things both children AND adults notice when training is that they don’t get to have super-star kung fu movie style moves without some serious work. As you dig in, and put yourself to the test mentally and physically, you’ll realize something…
You’ll realize that through all of your hard work, by listening to your instructors, and showing up for yourself - you are incredibly capable of smashing your goals. This sense of achievement gives our students HUGE boosts in confidence.
As you learn striking, self-defense moves, or even learn how to do a push up for the first time you’ll proudly pat yourself on the back and feel great about the person you’re becoming. We love to see this trait develop in our students.
Martial Arts is so much fun! You’ll learn all sorts of new skills and techniques like striking drills, defensive moves, and even super-secret functional cardio drills. But...when you learn a new skill you have to concentrate hard on listening to the instructor, then performing what they taught you.
The neat thing is this intense concentration naturally pours into all other areas of your life as you develop laser like focus. It’s one of the most amazing side-effects of martial arts - many call it getting in the zone, unlocking your untapped potential, or peak performance.
Whatever you want to call it, one thing is for certain - you’ll learn how to focus your mind to perform tasks you once thought impossible.
Whether you’re an elite athlete looking for a competitive edge or if you’re a total beginner and think a burpee is a bodily function, we take pride in meeting all of our students where they are. Our passionate and caring instructors work with YOU to meet your fitness goals.
In a positive and motivating environment, you’ll get a great workout, practice dynamic martial arts specific conditioning, and have a blast. Before you know it, the class is over, and you not only learned powerful martial arts...
... you got a great workout, too. Being physically fit boosts energy, mental clarity, and confidence as well.
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.
Your classmates will be genuinely happy for you when you master your new tasks because they know how hard you have to work for it. Now extend that mentality into a wide network of martial artists, practicing and struggling, just like you.
There's a reason Martial Artists typically greet each other as "brother" or "sister" and it's truly powerful to see that realization sink in for new students.
Ugh...fitness can be so boring! Luckily, we’re working out like super-star martial artists. Learning to use our entire body to protect ourselves and our families. In our awesome classes you’ll tighten up your core, gain lean muscle on your legs and arms, and have a blast.
No two workouts are ever the same and we DON'T use military style yelling or body shaming. After all we want you to have a ton of fun here, and keep coming back. Plus, our instructors know they’ll get the best possible performance out of you when you’re in a good mood. That’s when we’re at our best too!
Kids and adults both work hard, and play hard. Laughing and smiles are part of every class.

You can call our Fort Collins kids martial arts classes "family classes" because the parents of our students love these classes as much as their kids. And why not when the end-result is discipline and great sense of respect for kids of all ages! We focus on a well-rounded student; well behaved everywhere and a good performer in school.
Kids love our martial arts classes because we blend fun activities and games, and still dedicate pure focus time to learn new techniques while perfecting the old ones.
Our Fort Collins Ninjutsu classes preserve ancient history and traditions while adapting the techniques and practices to the modern world. As a result, Ninjutsu is just as relevant and effective today as it was in ancient Japan.
Have you ever seen in the movies where a master swordsman instantly draws his sword from its sheath, performs fast slashes, then calmly places the sword back in its sheath?
This entire art is Japanese Muso Jikiden Eishen Ryu Iaijutsu!: the style of going from a resting position with sword in sheath, to fast combat, back to a resting position. Click here to discover this amazing art and get started today!
Our Fort Collins Kids Martial Arts After School Program is perfect for the concerned parent on the go! Since we pick your child up from school, they'll be in a safe and exciting learning environment full of high energy activities with a focus on their studies...right up until the time you pick them up. Get ready to hear all about how much fun they had during your ride home!
They'll get a great mixture of martial arts, healthy exercise, and fun activities. Plus - lessons on respect, discipline, and paying attention are always front and center during study and homework time. It's deeply enriching and a lot of fun!
