Gilbert Martial Arts

Life-changing classes in self-defense, fitness & weight loss, and a more focused, confident life.

The 5 Ways We Change Lives,
For Both Kids & Adults.

Welcome!

Bet you thought our Gilbert martial arts school was just a super cool place to get fit and learn self-defense... the truth is it's so much more.

As you get physically fit, you’ll also experience some changes most of our students are NOT prepared for. Especially our younger students. They are absolutely blown away by the subtle changes that happen when you train in our programs.

Below are a handful of those life-changing experiences people walk away with. We can’t wait to hear what kind of positive experiences you can add to the list as well!

#1 Sizzlin’ Self-Confidence

Something amazing happens when you start to move your body and incorporate physical fitness into your life...it creates an anchor. An anchor for more happiness, for a feeling of accomplishment, and a really big boost in confidence! You’ll have a network of passionate instructors and classmates ready to support you as you strive to bust through your martial arts and fitness goals.

As you progress through class you will realize how amazing and capable you can be. Realizing that makes you feel more confident and sure of your ability to handle whatever other challenges life throws your way.

Both kids and adults experience this and it’s one of the greatest things to see as a teacher. Wallflower students blossom into dynamic leaders in the classroom while adults tackle everyday tasks with gusto and a "can do" attitude.

#2 Laser Like Focus

Focus your mind grasshopper...as you concentrate hard on listening to your instructor, then performing what they taught you, you’ll improve your ability to concentrate and absolutely smash your martial arts and fitness goals.

The neat thing is that this intense concentration naturally pours into all other areas of your life.

Studies have shown that just a half hour of physical fitness improves focus, heightens problem solving ability, and even boosts memory in both kids and adults.

#3 Let’s Get Physical

Our classes are a blast and based on functional fitness. We use positive reinforcement and high fives instead of military style yelling and endless hours on a treadmill.

This means that each of our classes is loaded with challenging, fun exercises designed to enhance your self-defense skills. Dynamic striking, high intensity intervals of cardio training, and movements that mimic how the human body should move are our focus.

Don’t worry if you feel as though you won’t be able to keep up. We work with all levels from total beginner to pro athlete. And you know what...they all sweat the same at the end of our workouts!

#4 Community & Family Ties

Martial artists are some of the most down-to-earth people you’ll ever meet. Highly skilled and dedicated to the lifestyle, we're definitely a tight-knit group here.

Students, their families, and our instructors are all about support and friendship. You’ll make tons of new friends for life, cheer each other on during tough times, and celebrate during victories.

Friendship, motivation, and dedication - that’s the foundation of the martial arts way of life. It's truly great to experience.

#5 You’ll Do FUN Stuff!

No two workouts are ever the same. We use functional fitness focused on getting your body in tip top shape. After all, if you can’t move your body in the real world or have enough endurance to get out of a bad situation then we’re not doing our job right.

You’ll learn how to move your body in fun new ways that will wreck your core, tone your arms and legs, and ensure that you stay as injury free as possible. Of course we do this with positive motivation. No military style yelling or body shaming, ever.

Kids and adults both work hard, but play harder.. Laughing, smiles, and high fives are part of every class.

Master great tactics in self-protection and get in shape quickly with our Gilbert self-defense program. No matter if you are a trained expert in martial arts or a complete beginner to combat in general who wishes to learn martial art techniques, our classes are suited for all ages, experience levels, and fitness levels too (you don't have to be in great shape to get started!).

We conduct the most efficient self-defense classes in Gilbert. Each of our students love these classes because they are so much fun and stress-relieving too. Let us get you in shape and help you master self-defense while you punch and kick stress out of your life!

Hapkido is an all-around self-defense system. With this Korean martial art on your side, you'll feel confident to protect yourself & your loved ones. It utilizes jump attacks with hands and feet, joint locks, throws, and strikes for both long range & short range defense.

As you learn the techniques, your body will change too. You'll get in incredible shape, and burn away extra pounds. In fact, many of our members are more thrilled about the weight loss than they are about the powerful techniques they've mastered!

Morihei Ueshiba, the creator of Aikido, sought to form a martial art that would defend people from attacks... while also protecting the attacker. Ueshiba wanted to cause no one harm, but understood that not everyone was so enlightened. It's important to know how to defend yourself, but you can do this without causing anyone serious injury.

In these exciting classes, you'll master the art that Ueshiba created. You'll learn to protect yourself and your loved ones. Your physique and fitness will improve. And you'll have fun alongside like-minded men and women who are focused and driven to succeed in Aikido.
