Character development, physical fitness, and practical self-defense - at Kicks Tae Kwon Do Self Defense & Fitness our friendly staff and instructors guarantee you'll have a TON of FUN, in a safe environment, while learning the most amazing and effective life saving martial arts skills possible!

Where traditional methods meet modern day needs. Our focus is on kids which means we need to be on our toes! Our staff is continuously training and learning so you have the most up to date information and instruction available to you and your family.

Fun classes teach self-discipline, how to focus on tasks when there is a ton of other "stuff" going on, and how to use your body for maximum martial arts performances! Dynamic and unique martial arts based fitness routines and training drills in a family friendly atmosphere will absolutely blow away any standard gym based experience. Promise.

There's one trick to make more friends and fall in love with getting physically fit...come to class!

Change can be scary but our warm, friendly staff will help you make amazing social connections, use super-fun striking and kicking drills like the pros, and get you in the absolute best shape of your matter what your starting level is! Both adults and children thrive in our classes and experience a whole new world of martial arts training outside of the stereotypes you might see on TV or in movies. We're the real deal.

We LOVE, LOVE, LOVE beginners! No matter what your starting level is, you'll get an amazing workout, gain lean muscle, and learn techniques to keep you and your family safe. Most of our students have never done martial arts before. In fact, many of our first timers haven't had much luck in sport at all. Until they get here that is...

Our instructors work with YOU to set YOUR goals based upon what you can currently do. It's called a baseline, and boy do we know how to motivate you from there!

Students who previously couldn't do one single push up, are able to do 10 in a row, shy & reserved students become class leaders, and fears turn into confidence. We see it happen every single day. We're here for you, to motivate you, mentor you and most of all...we're here to support you and your family in your new healthy life choices.

Some other added benefits both our kids and adult members experience are:

  • Boosted Self-Esteem

  • Better Body Confidence - hello skinny jeans!

  • Better Teamwork & Goal Setting Skills

  • Outrageous Core Strength & Hip Mobility

  • Improvements in Stress Reduction

  • Huge Gains in Flexibility & Better Injury Prevention

Clean, friendly, affordable. We keep our students safe with strict hygiene standards. Mats are cleaned, students are expected to be in clean uniforms, and there is always plenty of well-lit parking for family members to come and go with ease. You'll feel safe and valued as our instructors guide you towards your goals, keeping you injury-free and in tip-top shape.

For more details on our unique ways to get into the best shape of your life, have the most fun you've EVER had working out, or get your kids involved in an after school activity that will have them giving you more high fives and hugs than you'll know what to do with... visit our classes page!

The "Classes" link in the menu above is where we break down what it is we do in each class and where you can find that super low web-special going on too!

Wouldn't want you to miss out.
