About Our School

The 5 Life-Changing Gifts of
Martial Arts. For Kids AND Adults.

Welcome to the family!

Our Harker Heights Martial Arts school might just seem like a place to get fit and learn self-defense... but to us it’s so much more. When you train with us you’ll experience a place where you fit in, no matter what your background or fitness experience is.

You’ll get into phenomenal shape, learn exciting self-defense skills, and experience personal growth that has improved the lives of each of our students. The physical transformation you’ll enjoy is fantastic, but the mindset and attitude you’ll develop is what’s truly amazing.

We’ll help you get next level fit, but below are a few of the more subtle changes our students experience in our classes as well.

#1 Remarkable Self-Confidence

Something amazing happens when you start to move your body and bring physical fitness into your life...it creates an anchor. An anchor for more happiness, a sense of accomplishment, and a BIG BOOST in confidence!

You’ll have a group of passionate instructors and classmates ready to support you as you strive to push past your limits and reach your martial arts and fitness goals.

As you progress through class, you will realize how amazing and capable you already are. Realizing that makes you feel more confident and sure of yourself and your ability to handle other life challenges that come your way.

Both kids and adults experience this and it’s one of the most rewarding things to see as a teacher. Kids – especially shy and quiet ones - blossom into dynamic leaders in the classroom while adults tackle everyday tasks with more energy and a "can do" attitude.

#2 Improved Focus

Martial arts is challenging and requires your full attention. As you concentrate hard on listening to the instructor, then performing what they taught you, you start to build crucial links in your brain which boost your ability to focus.

What’s great is that this intense concentration naturally pours into all other areas of your life.

Adults report being able to not only concentrate better at work, but they’re able to clear their mind at the end of the day better as well. Kids benefit too as they pay more attention at school and at home.

#3 Fitness Will Suit You

No matter what your starting level is, each one of our students improves from the state they were in when they walked in for their first class. From complete and total beginner to elite athletes, we strive to make sure each class is loaded with challenging and fun exercises that work your entire body.

You’ll be so focused on performing techniques unique to some of the worlds top performing martial artists, and having so much fun, that before you know it, the class is over, and you not only learned powerful martial arts...

... but you got a great workout, too. Being physically fit boosts energy, mental clarity, and confidence as well.

#4 Feeling Like You Belong Here

Many martial artists claim they always felt like an “outsider” before they found Martial Arts. Some of our students just never got into organized sports in school or felt that social clubs weren’t for them.

But the same students that tell us how they “never fit in” or weren’t popular seem to come alive in class! We provide a safe, non-judgmental environment where we all want each other to succeed. We don’t have bullies or students trying to one up or outdo each other.

Our members and instructors are all about support and friendship. Kids and adults easily make a lot of friends here and, as a result, our one big happy family thrives.

We provide the kind of environment that fosters friendship, encouragement, and motivation. The sense of fulfillment you get after every class will bring a big smile to your face.

#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.

Make the next chapter of your life amazing! We want you to succeed with us, so we’re offering a limited time 100% money back guarantee on all web specials.

Yup, that’s how much we believe in you. Scroll up to the top of this page and click on the program that's right for you. Snag the super-sweet web special and try us out. If we’re not for you, no worries. You get 100% of your money back. No ifs ands or buts.

Our Krav Maga classes are developed from the mid-1930s Jewish / Israeli history. In those years, anti-Semitic thugs dominated Bratislava and terrorized Jewish citizens. But a man named Imi Sde-Or, also Jewish, became their champion by defending them on the streets.

Imi Sde-Or, in his many street fights, realized that boxing and wrestling had no place in the "real world". He was an Olympic contender in both, so no one knew boxing and wrestling better than he did. He took his experience on the street, combined it with what he already knew, and developed Krav Maga; a unique type of self-defense that utilizes natural instincts for self-protection. Get fit and develop self-defense by joining our Harker Heights Krav Maga classes.

Both men and women come to our adult martial arts classes for lots of reasons. Some have been in dangerous situations where they felt hopeless and realized they needed to learn self-defense for safety and protection. Some have come to make new friends and meet like minded people while others have wanted a new way to get fit.

No matter what your reasons are, you're sure to gain life enhancing skills while getting a great workout and having a ton on FUN! Burn fat, tone muscle, and improve stamina while learning dynamic martial arts moves today! Check out the class page for amazingly low web specials and more details on how you can be safe, happy, and fit for life!

Our kids Martial Arts classes help kids in so many amazing ways. In fact, self-defense is just the beginning. Mastering Martial Arts takes determination & commitment - two life skills 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 motivated to help around the house. Plus, kids have a BLAST in every class. Your child is sure to have the time of their life, and make a lot of awesome friends along the way.
