About Our School

The 5 Reasons Our Martial Arts Classes Are
So Life-Changing, For Both Kids & Adults.

Dear Neighbor,

Thank you for stopping by our Tampa martial arts school's website. And I'm glad you're reading this far, because I'm about to reveal why our classes are so life-changing for people of all ages in our community...

When you first came to this site, you may have thought martial arts was all about self-defense and getting fit.

While that's definitely a big part, it's not the whole picture.

In reality, it's so much more.

Here are the top 5 things you can expect from our classes, whether you're interested in adults classes for your self, or classes for your child:

#1: More Passion & Drive in Your Life

Many people these days are lacking passion. Nothing really gets them "excited" anymore. Whether that's because we're constantly surrounded by so much stimulation that we've become "immune" to it... or something else...

... one thing is certain:

Martial arts re-awakens passion. It gets people excited about life. It's one of the greatest things to see as a teacher, when your students eyes start lighting up more and more.

Both children and adults experience this - and it's awesome.

#2: Greater Self-Esteem

Martial arts is full of challenges, and you have to dig deep and try hard to overcome them. But the harder you work, and the more you practice, the easier those challenges are to overcome.

However, tackling big obstacles has another side effect: it makes you realize how much you're actually capable of. Maybe you're not aware of how strong you really are, or of how much you can achieve.

As you start doing things that you once thought were "impossible," your image of yourself will completely transform. Your confidence and self-esteem will soar.

#3: You're Part of an Awesome Family

One of the greatest things about our classes isn't what happens "in" the classes... but what goes on all "around" them. And that's the amazing community we've created here.

Friendships are born all the time, and people are constantly supporting, motivating, and inspiring one another. More experienced students help out the less experienced ones, and everyone is led by our instructors who truly care about your success and the success of all of our students.

That's just how we do things here.

#4: Get Leaner, Fitter, Stronger

Of course, martial arts is an AWESOME workout. But it's not like other workouts. For starters, it works your entire body: your arms, your legs, your core, and everywhere else. Next, it's not like a traditional workout where you just do pushups and sit-ups and run for a while.

It's a series of challenging techniques that work your body while you have FUN. The moves are so exciting and packed with action that the time flies by. Before you know it, you just got an amazing workout, and your body will reflect it.

People often already get leaner, fitter, and stronger within the first few weeks alone.

#5: My Personal Favorite: FUN!

These classes are NOT military-style where someone shouts at you and forces you to do a bunch of things you hate! No, these classes are filled with FUN. Laughter can be heard throughout every class, people can be seen smiling, and the time flies.

We want you to enjoy coming here, so we make it as fun and engaging as possible for you. That goes for both kids and adults.

Tampa Fitness kickboxing is such a powerful way to lose weight, get fit, and get in shape. These cardio kickboxing classes develop strength and stamina in your arms, your core, and your legs. Thats because every kickboxing move works almost your entire body. Even a punch requires the twisting of the hips, which builds core / ab strength, and the stability of the legs, increasing strength there as well.

When you combine that with our great body-weight exercises, passionate staff who will push you and motivate you to do your best, and fun atmosphere this program is definitely a great one for achieving your results.
