About Our School

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

Hi and welcome!

We’re so happy to share our passion for martial arts with you. For some, our Paterson 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…

Huge Confidence Gains

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.

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.

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.

Become Part of a Community

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.

You'll Have FUN!

Working out and fun? Yup! Our classes are a blast! Martial arts is a way of life for us and we want you to have a good life too. We work hard but we play hard too. 

Did you know that the average adult only laughs about 20 times per day? Our classes strive to make you above average in every way - and that includes your mental wellbeing.

Laughing and smiles are part of every class as well as high fives and TONS of support.

Our Paterson Kids Karate classes are not only geared towards excellent self-defense techniques, striking, and kicking - children ages 3 and up are taught self-discipline, focus, and respect.

Our Paterson Bully Program (Gracie Bully Proof) helps children deter bullies and avoid them in the first place altogether. It starts with confidence, because bullies only pick on kids who feel weak and insecure. So the first thing we will do is build up your child's confidence and self-esteem. Most bully situations can be talked down, so we also arm children with proven verbal skills to end fights before they ever start.

But we also teach kids effective self-defense through martial arts because sometimes, though rarely, confidence and verbal techniques just aren't enough. The ultimate goal is to keep your child safe and happy.
