Great workouts. Clean Facility. Bully Free Zone.
I cannot say enough great things about Life Systems Martial Arts, the owner, and all of the instructors! I highly recommend to anyone wanting to teach their child everyday self-defense and discipline. They incorporated mat chats into their daily lessons to teach children how to be kind, responsible, and respectful people as they navigate through life. It is a very clean and safe space for children and adults both to learn and grow. They treat you as if you are family and the atmosphere is very welcoming.
Would highly recommend for family martial arts training. Both my kids loved the positive atmosphere and caring staff. The classes are small enough where everyone gets personalized instruction.
Great teaching. Great environment!
My 6-year-old loves coming here! The staff are all very nice and helpful and jump in and help the kids be the best they can be.
What a great place to send your children for martial arts lessons. Shihan teaches them self defense skills, self-discipline, and overall work ethic skills that will help pave that way for their future development. I highly recommend this.
My son who is 8 did Life System Martial Arts for a year and was able to earn his purple belt. He loved the teachers and activities during class. It is a great place for supporting life long character-building skills and self-defense. It also supports families who need chores and responsibility for their kids at home. We always felt welcome!
Little Dragons was our 4 1/2 year old's first organized activity. He was a bit reluctant, but everyone was very patient and tried to encourage and interact with him at his level. They also did a great job including him.
Very friendly and helpful staff, my son absolutely loves it. If you're interested in martial arts can not go wrong here.
Our family loves Life Systems. We are treated as family. And staff is wonderful and friendly to work with.
My nephew Demetrius attends and it has helped him focus and has boosted his confidence. This place is a great place.
Great place for any child to discover who they are...and become their absolute best! A true-life lesson in integrity and perseverance. My Grandson (Demetrius) has learned a lot about himself.
It is a very good place to learn and bring your kids they will have fun I totally recommend it.
Great staff. Great family atmosphere. They teach martial arts and important values. My son has been there 2 years and loves it. He's always excited about going. Highly recommend.
My daughter has been going to Life Systems Martial Arts for over a year! It is more than just an activity for kids, it is a safe an loving environment! It teaches them more than just protecting themselves! We have gained life long relationships here! I HIGHLY recommend this dojo!!!
Mark runs a clean and friendly dojo here. I feel a real sense of community and friendship. They teach self-defense and discipline in a fun easy-going style. I would recommend to anyone looking for a place to learn self-defense with a side of fitness and friendship.
We have been going to LSMA for about a year and a half and love it! The whole team is fantastic and we have seen a positive impact on our son!
I recently attended a self-defense class at Life Systems Martial Arts. The class offered specific instruction and direction on what to do in the event of an unwarned attack etc. The class was structured and the instructors were very knowledgeable and professional. This is a martial arts institute that cares about the children it serves as well as the community it currently serves. I recommend this Martial arts school to all ages.
A very friendly and family-oriented place to learn self-defense. You'll have fun, learn a lot, and get a work out at the same time.
You won't regret your decision. This place is amazing. The skills they are teaching these kids are so much more than just karate. The name says it all Life Systems. They are kind, compassionate, and patient. Sometimes watching the Little Dragons class is like watching someone try to herd cats but they do such a wonderful job herding those cats :) The communication with the parents is awesome too. I could go on about them. Can't say enough positive things.
It's a good place to help your child gain focusing skills.

Every year, the American Heart Association celebrates Heart Month to raise awareness about heart disease and heart health.
What you may not know is that martial arts are great for the heart. In fact, the cardiac benefits of martial arts give a whole new meaning to the idea of cardiovascular fitness.
With that in mind, here are some ways that taking martial arts classes can protect and strengthen your heart.
Martial Arts Raise the Heart Rate
The first way that martial arts can help the heart is by raising your heart rate when you work out. The heart is a muscle and it needs to be worked. When you take a martial arts class, your heart rate is elevated.
The benefit of raising the heart rate is that it oxygenates the blood, and helps promote calorie burning even after you’re done working out. People of all ages need to keep their hearts pumping, and martial arts is a great way to do it.
Martial Arts Lower Blood Pressure
Did you know that a high-intensity martial arts workout can help lower your blood pressure? It’s true. Hypertension, or high blood pressure, is a leading contributor to heart disease.
When you work out, your heart becomes stronger – and that means that it can pump blood more efficiently than it can without exercise. The less effort your heart has to expend on pumping blood, the lower your blood pressure is.
Martial Arts Lower Cholesterol
LDL cholesterol – the so-called “bad” cholesterol” – is a contributing factor in heart disease. Regular participation in martial arts helps you lose weight and that decreases the amount of LDL cholesterol in your blood.
There’s evidence that working out also shrinks the proteins that carry cholesterol through the bloodstream, making them less dangerous to the heart.
On a related note, regular vigorous exercise – such as the kind you get in a martial arts workout – helps to increase HDL or “good” cholesterol.
Martial Arts Reduces Stress
One thing that separates martial arts from many other forms of exercise is that it requires mental stillness combined with physical exertion.
Mental stillness contributes to mindfulness, a practice that can significantly decrease stress and anxiety in both children and adults.
Considering that there is a direct link between stress and heart health (stress contributes to high blood pressure and related issues), the fact that participating in martial arts can reduce stress is a huge benefit for the heart.
In addition to the benefits already mentioned, martial arts training also helps to improve discipline, build muscle coordination, and increase self-confidence.
This month, why not give your heart a boost by adding martial arts to your workout routine?
