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.

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 Your Child Need A Supportive, Educational, and Fun Activity?

Learning Martial Arts Teaches Young Kids Life Skills While They Have Fun

Young children are curious and active – and they sometimes have difficulty learning to control their bodies and their behavior. They crave structure and thrive in an environment that’s supportive, educational, and fun.

Does your young child

struggle with these things?

They struggle to maintain control of their movements and may be unintentionally destructive.

They find it difficult to focus on a task or to see it through to the end.

They have a hard time sharing their belongings and getting along with other kids.

Parenting young children is a real challenge.

You must balance their natural inquisitiveness and high energy with trying to teach them the basic skills they need for school and life.

Discipline, sharing, and self-control are all things they need to learn to be successful.

The ideal setting is one that’s got some structure but works with kids at their current developmental level. If they have fun while they’re learning, they’ll be more likely to retain those lessons and learn the skills they need.

Results and growth with every class!

Studying martial arts is ideal for young children. It provides them with an outlet for their energy. But, it also teaches them about respect, discipline, and other core values that will go with them beyond the dojo. Junior martial arts classes teach kids to control their movements and behavior, and they’ll learn social skills and interaction at the same time.

Studying Martial Arts Builds Physical Coordination and Control

Young children who learn martial arts find out quickly that each movement must be intentional. They learn to control their movements to the best of their ability.

They also practice hand-eye coordination and learn about their bodies. That means they’ll be less likely to be unintentionally destructive.

Young Martial Arts Students Learn How to Focus

Getting young kids to pay attention can feel like an impossible task. The structure of our martial arts classes shows kids the importance of focus and teaches them by having them apply it to easily-achievable tasks.

The focus they learn in the dojo is something they’ll take home – and into the classroom. That’s why kids who study martial arts tend to be good students, too.

Martial Arts Helps Kids Learn to Deal with Frustration

Martial arts instruction requires students to pursue goals to earn new belts. Young kids can easily become frustrated when they don’t get what they want, but studying martial arts helps them learn the power of persistence.

The physical activity in our classes also helps kids manage stress and anxiety by allowing them to burn it off in a safe and constructive way.

Kids Who Study Martial Arts Learn Good Sportsmanship

Losing is not anybody’s idea of fun, but we all need to learn how to accept a defeat gracefully and move on. We teach students that losing is part of life – and it’s what you do after you lose that tells people who you are.

Even though martial arts is an individual sport, we cultivate an environment of supportive teamwork where students root for one another.

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.

FAQs

My child still has temper tantrums and I’m worried about how they’ll behave in school. Can studying martial arts help?

Yes, it can. We help children learn the importance of emotional control and respect for others. These are lessons that will help them in the classroom, too.

Will studying martial arts help my child learn how to interact with others and share?

Yes. Even though studying martial arts is an individual pursuit, we teach kids to learn in a collaborative environment with an emphasis on sharing, cooperation, and teamwork.

My child zones out in class and misses important instructions. Can taking martial arts classes help them do a better job of focusing?

Yes. Part of martial arts training is teaching kids to be mindful of themselves and their surroundings. They must focus to succeed in class, and once they learn to do it, they’ll be able to do the same thing at school.

My child is out of control physically, and can be very destructive. How will studying martial arts help?

Martial arts instruction focuses on hand-eye coordination, control, and strength. As kids learn basic moves and then advance, they learn how to control their bodies and movements.

My child gives up easily when frustrated. I want them to learn persistence. Can your classes help?

Yes. It’s common for students to require more than one attempt to earn a new belt. We teach them that trying is the most important thing – and that persistence pays off.

My child is disrespectful to me and to other caregivers. How can studying martial arts change that?

Respect is at the core of everything we do in the dojo. Kids who study martial arts must respect their instructors and fellow students, and we find that they learn to respect parents, teachers, caregivers, and siblings at the same time.

More Benefits

Kids learn how to listen respectfully to others without interruptions.

Our students learn the value of discipline as they pursue clearly-defined goals.
