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.

Fred Milch

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.

Toby Matherly

Great teaching. Great environment!

Heather Ford

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.

Chris Fenton

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.

Stephanie Fenton

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!

Coreen Todd

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.

Matt Skeen

Very friendly and helpful staff, my son absolutely loves it. If you're interested in martial arts can not go wrong here.

Jon Moore

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.

Landen Wade

It is a very good place to learn and bring your kids they will have fun I totally recommend it.

Jamie Murphy

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!!!

Gaige Page

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.

Julia Miller

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!

S Moss

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.

Jody C

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.

Jami Smith

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.

Richie

It's a good place to help your child gain focusing skills.

Does any of this

sound familiar?

Sitting at work takes up the majority of your day, and you feel the need to do something about it.

Typical forms of exercise don’t really work for you. They’re too demanding or painful, and they tire you out just thinking about them.

Nagging joint issues make simple activities like walking around a chore.

Aging is an unavoidable aspect of life

...but that doesn’t mean you can’t do it gracefully

Tai Chi is a low impact, easy-to-start form of exercise that’s perfect for men and women of all ages, shapes, and sizes. Don’t be fooled by thinking this is your typical martial arts practice. Tai Chi classes are less about self-defense, fighting, and intensity, and more about health, inner peace, and tranquility.

The flowing motions of Tai Chi will invigorate your mind and body, waging war on the years of stress and tension you’ve allowed to build up.

Feel the stress and tension melt away

Stress and anxiety can actually turn your life upside down. It can take years to fully recover from a major incident. I think it takes most people a lot longer – maybe even a lifetime.You don’t want this to happen to you. Getting ahead of your stress means slowing down and doing something to counteract years of mounting troubles.The aches, pains, and tension you feel are your body’s way of crying out for help. It’s desperate for a break and some tender, loving care.

Health Benefits Galore

For thousands of years, people have been invigorated and healed by the simple practice of Tai Chi.

There are so many health benefits Tai Chi has to offer. See for yourself some of the more notable ones…

  • Improves mood and leads to lower levels of depression
  • Soothes stress, eases anxiety, and prohibits unnecessary worries
  • Reduces inflammation and eases achy joints and muscles
  • Increases energy levels and stamina
  • Greater aerobic capacity and muscle strength
  • Lowers blood pressure and improves heart health
  • Enhances flexibility, balance, and agility

Almost sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it? Well it isn’t. And that’s the wonderful power of Tai Chi classes.

The Feel of a Yoga Practice

Just because Tai Chi is low-impact, doesn’t mean it’s for wimps or sissies. Tai Chi offers the allure of a martial arts class, but with the feel of a yoga practice. In simpler terms, be a badass while healing your body.

Many beginner and expert students love the peace and relaxation of the flowing Tai Chi movements. Others love and appreciate the martial arts side of Tai Chi, more commonly known as “push-hands”.

Tai Chi classes are unique in that they evolve with the student’s comfort level and goals. All levels of Tai Chi offer the healing and relaxation benefits for your mind, body, and soul.

Low-Impact Training

After a long, hard day’s work, most people are too exhausted to hit the gym or go for a run. Furthermore, those sorts of intense workouts can be a nightmare for older folks or those with bone or joint issues.

Tai Chi is considered a low-impact form of training that’s appropriate for almost anyone. Individuals who are obese, pregnant, or just plain out-of-shape can immediately pick up Tai Chi and experience its benefits.

Even people who would consider themselves above average in terms of fitness level have plenty to gain from this low-impact style of training.

Tai Chi is the only low-impact exercise that has a proven history for reversing the aging process. Not even yoga can compare.

Positively Charged Community

When you walk into your first Tai Chi class, one of the first things you will feel is the energy of the atmosphere.

We’re a tight-knit, positively charged community and are very welcoming to prospective and new students of all kinds.

Tai Chi is ultimately about increasing happiness through its healing movements and motions. Our classes provide a loving and healthy environment to meet people and make life-long friends with other like-mind individuals. We truly offer a place where love, peace, and happiness intertwine to create a deep, joyous feeling for all who attend.

FAQs

What are the health benefits of Tai Chi?

We’ve already covered most of the health benefits above, but here they are again compiled for you.

Regular practice nourishes and rejuvenates the mind, body, and soul. In a physical sense, Tai Chi strengthens the lower body and improves balance. It promotes good posture and improves joint flexibility, making it easier to stand and move around.

The flowing movements of Tai Chi and the shifting of weight improves blood flow throughout the body, which means a healthier heart.

As you learn to relax physically through the Tai Chi practice, you also relax your mind, easing the stress of work, relationships, family, and life. Coping with stress is a major benefit that attracts most people to the ancient art of Tai Chi.

Who can learn Tai Chi?

Students of all ages, shapes, sizes, and abilities have participated in and enjoyed our classes. Tai Chi is considered a low-impact form of exercise, meaning it is very mild and soothing to practice.

The basic and essential movements of Tai Chi are taught and practiced in slow motion. We provide real-time instruction and body adjustments so that you can feel the movements how they are meant to be felt.

Almost anyone can come in and learn the Tai Chi practice with optimism and desire.

How long does it take to learn the Tai Chi movements?

Typically, it takes anywhere from 20 to 30 hours of class to learn and memorize all the basic movements. This depends greatly on the schedule of your teaching location. The benefits of Tai Chi, however, are felt immediately. As you begin to practice the flowing movements of Tai Chi, your body will start the healing process, and you will experience many of the benefits listed above.

Long after you master the beginner movements, your Tai Chi practice will continue to evolve with you. You may continue to study at deeper and deeper levels, further increasing its benefits, and embodying the Tai Chi principles for life.

What if I have health problems or physical ailments?

Tai Chi, when properly instructed and practiced, can be safely and effectively performed by anyone capable of standing and walking around. The Tai Chi movements can and should be followed at your individual aptitude and always adjusted to your current level of health.

It may be comforting to know that plenty of scientific research has shown that Tai Chi has proven beneficial to those suffering from most chronic illnesses, including heart disease, arthritis, and diabetes. Here is a link to just one of the many studies done on Tai Chi.

If you have any physical ailment or disability it is important to consult a medical professional before beginning your Tai Chi practice.

I’m thinking about buying a Tai Chi video or book, will it be able to help?

I’ve personally purchased a Tai Chi for beginners video some years ago. While it was very informative and instructional, there is really nothing that can replace learning Tai Chi in person from an experienced instructor.

Videos and books also lack the community feeling that Tai Chi classes have to offer, which is a significant motivating factor to actually getting up and practicing.
