There's nothing more satisfying than watching your 3-6 year old gain physical and social skills that you know will benefit them for life. Your little one will learn focus, self-confidence and discipline, while getting a full body work out. Kids Martial Arts teach fantastic martial arts moves plus vital interpersonal skills.
Martial Arts is one of the best possible activities for children. They'll learn to defend themselves physically, but more importantly they'll build the mental and emotional skill sets necessary to conquer challenges like high school, college, and becoming a healthy, balanced adult.
Martial Arts is the perfect activity for teenagers! It gives them an outlet for their unique energy through engagement and gross motor skill activity, but at Hands Of Life Martial Arts, they'll do it in a structured class designed and taught just for them.
Whether it's losing weight, building muscle, learning to defend yourself, or just having a blast, our Teen & Adult Martial Arts classes have what you need. You'll love the high energy class instruction, your body will love the awesome workout, and your spirit will love the camaraderie and positive atmosphere.
Self-defense is a set of awareness, assertiveness, verbal confrontation skills, safety strategies, and physical techniques that enable someone to successfully escape, resist, and survive violent attacks. A good self-defense course provides psychological awareness and verbal skills, not just physical training.
Law Enforcement Training is as "real-deal" as it gets. Learn the techniques taught to FBI, CIA, DEA and police forces, that allow you to control the situation. In our L.E.O classes, you'll learn fool-proof defenses from all kinds of attacks - even those including knives and guns.
The best in Garwood
Our programs were created for real family schedules. Convenient class times mean that kids, adults, and whole families can improve their quality of life without killing every moment of spare time.
Our positive atmosphere is contagious, and you'll know without a doubt that you're in a place where kids will learn positive habits and adults will make meaningful, lasting friendships.
All of our programs improve physical prowess, and that's important. But what's far more important is the mental and emotional benefits that our programs bring to everyday life.
Both kids and adults will gain flexibility, agility, and strength, even if they aren't athletic! They'll love it, because it's not only super fun, it’s inclusive and accommodating at every step.
Garwood Kids agree:
Kids love classes at Hands Of Life Martial Arts because they're unbelievably fun (but parents love them because they build benefits for life!)
Everything we do is intentionally structured based on our extensive experience. Kids at Hands Of Life Martial Arts actually like the structure, because it makes them feel safe and cared for. They can trust deep down that they're safe to explore and challenge themselves.
We take kids’ emotions seriously. The culture at Hands Of Life Martial Arts is one of inclusion - no cliques, no cool kids club, no unkind actions or attitudes. Kids love it because they always feel like they belong!
It's so much fun! At Hands Of Life Martial Arts, we know that getting your child out of the house, in the car, and across town to an activity is a big deal. We guarantee that when they leave, it will have been 100% worth it, every time!
Programs built for real people
Our classes were designed specifically for the average person. You'll build skills step by step, without having to be a superstar to see improvement. But stick with it, and you'll see your abilities soar!
You'll will be surrounded by peers striving towards the same goals you are, day in, day out. You'll build friendships and be supported in your individual journey.
We've always known it, but now the science agrees: You must take time for your own mental health. Martial Arts helps you clear your mind, accomplish goals, and be more healthy, from the inside out.
It's more than just learning awesome looking moves - it's proprioception, balance, agility and more - physical skills that will remain with and benefit you for the rest of your life.
We send regular anonymous surveys to our members in our program. Here's a sample of the real feedback we get regularly:
Sensei Hearns is one of the most dedicated and inspirational teachers I have ever had the privilege of being instructed by. I would strongly recommend his dojo to anyone who is serious about martial arts.
Hands of Life not only teaches our daughter karate but also valuable life skills like self control, determination, confidence, respect and even healthy eating! I take our daughter to the weekday class and my husband takes her on the weekend. Then we all practice her moves at home together! Hands of Life has truly become a family activity.
Hands Of Life Martial Arts is the favorite choice of Garwood families for their childrens' and teens' physical, mental and emotional development. Plus there’s no better facility for adults to improve their physical health and mental wellness. Schedule a trial today!
