I’ve had such an amazing experience training here!! The atmosphere is fun, very welcoming, and relaxing! Although the training is intense, it is worth going back again and again. I feel at home, the people I train with are absolutely amazing. I walk away feeling 10 times better than when I walked in!!!!

My son has been training at Art Of War now for a few months now and it has been an awesome experience. My son has trained at 2 other gyms and when we moved here we had a hard time finding a gym that was family friendly and that meshed well with us. We decide to stop searching and finally found AOW. Since day 1 it felt like we were with family. My youngest is 2 and is too young to do any classes but that doesn't stop him from getting on the mats for some fun after class. Aaron teaches Judo and is an awesome instructor. The kids jiu jitsu class is taught by Art and Andrew, who are so patient with the kids, yet assertive at the same time. If you're looking for your child to learn discipline and sweet skills this is the place!

Me and my kids have been attending this school for a while now. I am 40 and they are 15 and 8. Classes are fun and we get a great workout in. Instructors are very knowledgeable and answer any questions you have no matter how small. I have been to a few schools over the years and this is one of my favorites. Family friendly, awesome place to hone your skills and teach your kids values. Highly recommended!

Patrick Sierocinski

Fantastic instructors, welcoming people, very clean and safe environment/facility. Instruction from Coach Art and Andrew is top notch and always evolving. Awesome place to train for anyone regardless of bjj/grappling experience.

Art of war is an awesome gym with a great group of members that make sure you’re comfortable and help you in any area you may be struggling in or having a tough time with. In my time being there, no gym has made me feel more welcome and comfortable quite like this one and I look forward to each training session every day that I go. The coaches and other members there treat you like family so checking the gym out is definitely worth it.

Adam Spann

I've been training here for about 4 months and I've had an outstanding experience. Everyone is very welcoming and patient with the new folks like myself, and Art is an incredible teacher. I was very intimidated walking in day 1 with no martial arts background, but that went away immediately after interacting with Art and the other members here. Great place with great people!

Kathy Wills

Wonderful place to be a part of! Coach Art and Coach Andrew are very welcoming! Their knowledge and skill are second to none! If you are looking for a place for your littles, or a place for yourself, this is the place to be! Myself and both my girls attend. I am 37 with a 16 and 5 year old. We love it here!

Does Your Child Need A Supportive, Educational, and Fun Activity?

Learning Martial Arts Teaches Young Kids Life Skills While They Have Fun

Young children are curious and active – and they sometimes have difficulty learning to control their bodies and their behavior. They crave structure and thrive in an environment that’s supportive, educational, and fun.

Does your young child

struggle with these things?

They struggle to maintain control of their movements and may be unintentionally destructive.

They find it difficult to focus on a task or to see it through to the end.

They have a hard time sharing their belongings and getting along with other kids.

Parenting young children is a real challenge.

You must balance their natural inquisitiveness and high energy with trying to teach them the basic skills they need for school and life.

Discipline, sharing, and self-control are all things they need to learn to be successful.

The ideal setting is one that’s got some structure but works with kids at their current developmental level. If they have fun while they’re learning, they’ll be more likely to retain those lessons and learn the skills they need.

Results and growth with every class!

Studying martial arts is ideal for young children. It provides them with an outlet for their energy. But, it also teaches them about respect, discipline, and other core values that will go with them beyond the dojo. Junior martial arts classes teach kids to control their movements and behavior, and they’ll learn social skills and interaction at the same time.

Studying Martial Arts Builds Physical Coordination and Control

Young children who learn martial arts find out quickly that each movement must be intentional. They learn to control their movements to the best of their ability.

They also practice hand-eye coordination and learn about their bodies. That means they’ll be less likely to be unintentionally destructive.

Young Martial Arts Students Learn How to Focus

Getting young kids to pay attention can feel like an impossible task. The structure of our martial arts classes shows kids the importance of focus and teaches them by having them apply it to easily-achievable tasks.

The focus they learn in the dojo is something they’ll take home – and into the classroom. That’s why kids who study martial arts tend to be good students, too.

Martial Arts Helps Kids Learn to Deal with Frustration

Martial arts instruction requires students to pursue goals to earn new belts. Young kids can easily become frustrated when they don’t get what they want, but studying martial arts helps them learn the power of persistence.

The physical activity in our classes also helps kids manage stress and anxiety by allowing them to burn it off in a safe and constructive way.

Kids Who Study Martial Arts Learn Good Sportsmanship

Losing is not anybody’s idea of fun, but we all need to learn how to accept a defeat gracefully and move on. We teach students that losing is part of life – and it’s what you do after you lose that tells people who you are.

Even though martial arts is an individual sport, we cultivate an environment of supportive teamwork where students root for one another.

FAQs

My child still has temper tantrums and I’m worried about how they’ll behave in school. Can studying martial arts help?

Yes, it can. We help children learn the importance of emotional control and respect for others. These are lessons that will help them in the classroom, too.

Will studying martial arts help my child learn how to interact with others and share?

Yes. Even though studying martial arts is an individual pursuit, we teach kids to learn in a collaborative environment with an emphasis on sharing, cooperation, and teamwork.

My child zones out in class and misses important instructions. Can taking martial arts classes help them do a better job of focusing?

Yes. Part of martial arts training is teaching kids to be mindful of themselves and their surroundings. They must focus to succeed in class, and once they learn to do it, they’ll be able to do the same thing at school.

My child is out of control physically, and can be very destructive. How will studying martial arts help?

Martial arts instruction focuses on hand-eye coordination, control, and strength. As kids learn basic moves and then advance, they learn how to control their bodies and movements.

My child gives up easily when frustrated. I want them to learn persistence. Can your classes help?

Yes. It’s common for students to require more than one attempt to earn a new belt. We teach them that trying is the most important thing – and that persistence pays off.

My child is disrespectful to me and to other caregivers. How can studying martial arts change that?

Respect is at the core of everything we do in the dojo. Kids who study martial arts must respect their instructors and fellow students, and we find that they learn to respect parents, teachers, caregivers, and siblings at the same time.
