Hello and thank you for reading this far!
Our Wesley Chapel Martial Arts School believes that martial arts is more than fitness and combat... we believe it makes people better on the inside, too.
For thousands of years, the belief that martial arts is a path to amazing health-promoting experiences has held true.
We've seen students develop stronger characters, experience more joy in life, and learn powerful self-defense techniques which helped them to become very physically fit.
Here are 5 things you can expect from our classes that you may not have realized before today...
Martial arts presents you with all kinds of challenges. The techniques themselves are new and different than anything you're likely used to.
You might even get frustrated at times when you can't do them "perfectly" right away. This is totally normal!
With practice, you WILL master these techniques, and then you'll look back and realize how much you've accomplished. When you do this, your confidence soars.
In fact, this often happens within just a week or two of starting. It's truly great to see.
Learning new skills and mastering techniques requires a lot of concentration! When you learn how to focus your mind and concentrate on a task at hand in a new way, it tends to spill over into other areas of your life as well.
For kids, they often start focusing better in school very quickly. Homework becomes less of a chore; they pay attention better in class, and are more dedicated to chores around the house.
For adults, they find themselves being more productive and focused at work, and achieving greater things.
It's amazing how much of a difference improved focus makes in our lives.
Physical fitness is crucial for a happy life. When you're fit, you have more energy, you can think more clearly, and feel happier overall. Plus, how about simply not having to groan from just getting up from the couch?!
A big portion of our classes is spent on improving your fitness. But we do it in a "functional" way that helps you in everyday life. As you get fitter, you also get more coordinated, balanced, and flexible.
This translates into amazing martial arts skills too!
A big part of our martial arts school is our community. We call each other brothers and sisters for a reason. As you train you will become close with fellow students and encourage each other to do well.
We've created an environment that fosters friendships and support. Members, both children and adults, make friends, form bonds, and help each other learn and grow.
For example, if you need help with a technique a more experienced fellow member, while supervised by our instructors, is encouraged to help you and vice versa.
Intense focus is broken up with laughter and tons of fun. After all...all work and no play never served anyone! And it doesn't serve us either. We want you to be at your best.
That's why every class is injected with fun and excitement. You'll laugh, smile, and the time will fly by.

Still have questions? Call us at (813) 435-9595. That's right, on the phone! We're here to help and would love to set up an appointment to answer any additional questions you have or even show you around the school.
Looking forward to hearing from you soon!

These Wesley Chapel Krav Maga classes are not just martial art classes! They were developed out of the mid-1930s Jewish history in a time of great need. Imi Sde-Or, a pro boxer and wrestler of Eastern European Jewish origin, used to defend Jewish citizens against anti-Semitic thugs in Bratislava on the street. He took his experience as an olympian and street fighter and developed Krav Maga.
Imi Sde-Or developed Krav Maga after realizing that the "real world" had no place for sport fighting. That's why Krav Maga techniques focus on self-defense by using natural instincts of the body for self-protection. Our Wesley Chapel Krav Maga classes will put you in great shape for self-protection too.
A glimpse into our awesome summer camp: Smiling faces... kids focusing intently on learning martial arts techniques, and helping each other in partnered activities... applause and laughter as they accomplish feats that once seemed impossible... and pure goofiness as they play games and enjoy a bit of free time.
Our martial arts summer camp has lots of fun, games and martial arts. But it's also about helping kids see that with the right attitude, discipline, and focus they can accomplish anything. Click to learn more.
Our Wesley Chapel kids martial arts after school program gives you a safe, fun, and learning environment to leave your kids until you get off of work. And because we pick your child up from school, you know he/she is in great hands from the moment the bell rings until the moment you take them home.
In our program, kids get a great mixture of martial arts, healthy exercise, fun activities, focused lessons on life such as respect, discipline, and paying attention, and time to study and get homework done. It's truly the most enriching and fun program out there.
Let your kid feel like a total rock star with our awesome kids birthday package. It's a fun, educational, structured birthday party involving martial arts... crazy-cool fun & games... pizza (of course!)... and more. Plus your kid will be the one-and-only star of the show!
They'll help teach martial arts to their friends... cut the birthday cake with a real sword (carefully supervised of course!)... and break a wooden board with just their hands or feet (if they've reached this level in their training). Guaranteed to be a safe, fun, awesome experience for your child & all of his / her friends.
Kids of all ages as well as their parents love these Wesley Chapel kids martial arts classes. That's because they focus beyond martial arts. Kids are taught self-discipline and respect as well as focus and confidence. The kids are better-behaved everywhere they go, their sense of respect improves and they perform better in school.
Our classes are result-focused and there are an array of fun activities and games for kids of all ages. Every age is perfectly catered for and the kids love these classes as they perfect their martial arts techniques and learn new ones.
