Since our opening in 1985, our mission at Attitude First Martial Arts Academy is to encourage kids and adults alike to develop confidence, courage, and commitment to defend themselves, their hopes, and their dreams. We have developed and implemented programs that directly address a person’s self-esteem, confidence, and decision-making skills using the martial arts as our basis.

My child lacks
confidence!

We recognize the importance that a child has personal successful experiences to draw from. This way a child can build a positive image of him/herself and not rely on what others think. We teach children to believe in themselves both on and off the training floor.

My child has an abundance of energy!

We design our classes so our kids have a safe place to burn off excess energy and the parents know that it's in a structured and safe environment. Developing minds need to have a place that encourages growth and hope.

My child doesn't listen or show respect!

We specialize in addressing the root causes of this type of behavior with discipline, structure, and positive reinforcement. Our students have a defined purpose with positive outlooks; this process is accomplished quickly by parental support and regular attendance.

My child
is getting
bullied!

How we wish we could stop the bullies. But we can't. Though we can strengthen the child so they can use their attitude so they aren't chosen as the victim. Improve their awareness, so they aren't where the bullies are. Leverage logic to avoid, evade, and/or protect themselves from mental, emotional, and physical harm.

My child doesn't seem to fit in other sports!

We create an environment that allows each child to experience the martial arts that are based upon their skills and abilities. We believe that all kids are uniquely different and need an environment to help explore their personal strengths. Most importantly, we believe all kids are capable of success, NO EXCEPTIONS!

My child is attracted to the wrong crowd!​

We recognize the importance that a child has personal successful experiences to draw from. This way a child can build a positive image of him/herself and not rely on what others think. We teach children to believe in themselves both on and off the training floor.
