Back to School

Our parents tell us that their children concentrate, focus, and solve problems better only after a few weeks in our program! And we want to help your child be successful…

SO we made it as easy as
A-B-C and 1-2-3 to prepare your student to go

Attitude First teaches the skills to thrive in today’s environment. Our philosophy is that a person’s attitude is the foundation for success, whether that be at school, work, or on the street. We teach our Members awareness and problem-solving in order to quickly identify situations and then engage in strategies that may help de-escalate or avoid that situation altogether. But should the need ever arise, we help to prepare our Members with the skills, confidence, discipline, and respect necessary to protect and defend their loved ones and themselves from physical harm. Attitude First Martial Arts is recognized for: 

  • our world-class instructors share the martial arts in a fun and exciting approach
  • our students being passionate, energetic, fun and great to participate with
  • our ability to teach the martial arts for people interested in self-defense, completion, fitness or just to have a lot of fun.

In the 37 years of providing martial arts education and training to the valley of the sun, we are privileged and take great pride in training our 3rd generation of students. The Attitude First Martial Arts Academy (AFMAA) can’t emphasize enough about the exciting path you or your child want to embark on. The AFMAA believes that this path will guide the member (student) to understanding, recognizing, and accomplishing any endeavor he/she chooses.

It is important to note – that EVERY MEMBER is an individual with understanding, challenges, and skills that are unique. We would be remiss if we thought every member was the same. Because of this, goals and requirements will be tailored to the member, so the member can achieve an established set of standards at a pace that is appropriate for their development.

As you have guessed, excelling in this endeavor requires an organized system of specific requirements and a timeline for accomplishing them. Using the Martial Arts as our curriculum allows us to track your progress with an integrated ranking system (the belts).

To further organize your progress, the AFMAA will set your training into individual sessions. Each session will be an opportunity to develop, practice, and enhance your skills. The consistency of attendance is the key to learning.

Our program is a comprehensive approach to learning to defend ourselves but it is not complicated. We have had every age group inside our academy from 3 to 75. You can start at any age, you don’t have to be in shape, or have some specific set of experiences. You just have to bring your willingness and your attitude to learn and grow!

Our approach to martial arts is built around three concepts: discipline, protection, and empowerment. Traditionally, these are referred to as body, mind, and spirit. Through the art of Kenpo Karate and the Universal Martial Arts Sciences, individuals develop practical self-defense skills, leadership qualities, self-discipline, self-empowerment, great speaking skills, and much more.
