Absolute Martial Arts is dedicated to enriching the lives of its students and community through martial arts training and principles. Children develop the confidence needed to overcome bullies and peer pressure and are taught to be respectful of others so they do not become the bully themselves. Motivation, encouragement, and honor are only some of the values at the core of Absolute Martial Arts. Therefore, through hard work, dedication, and determination each student trains with pride and has the intense drive to finish what they begin. They develop an incomparable sense of accomplishment as they make every effort to truly earn their belts, their privileges, and the respect for self as well as the respect of others. Absolute Martial Arts takes the lessons learned within the training area and applies them into all aspects of the student's life. With this in mind, we monitor their school grades, promote regular exercise along with a healthier diet, and frequently discuss at home behavior with parents.

 

Our school teaches realistic self-defense and discipline in a fun and exciting atmosphere. While learning traditional Taekwondo, students are also introduced to Jiu-Jitsu in order to offer a complete mixed martial arts experience. Along with self-defense, Absolute Martial Arts strives to develop both mind and body through martial arts foundations and training. Here, a program undeniably exists for everyone; it does not matter what your skill level may be, your reason for joining, or your goals in martial arts.   

Our memberships are quite simple. The price is monthly with NO CONTRACTS or time obligations, and we do not use high pressure sales tactics to enroll students. They are not necessary because we firmly believe that students will enjoy their lessons, work outs, and time at our school so much that ultimately, they will want to continue training regularly. We offer several classes per week for all levels, averaging 4 per week for most students. The amount of classes offered increases as the student progresses in belt rank.

In order to accommodate all of our customers, we offer two membership options. The first is an Unlimited Program. In this program, we encourage the student to attend all designated classes according to the current schedule for their rank. For those who have schedule conflicts that do not allow them time to come at least four times a week, we also offer a program that allows for a student to attend 2 times per week. 

Becoming part of our school is just as easy. Call, e-mail, or come by to schedule a free trial lesson. Our owner, Instructor Bruce will personally meet with you prior to class to give you a tour of the facility and answer any questions you may have. Students also find their martial arts experience to be much more enjoyable with friends, so feel free to bring them to class with you. We look forward to hearing from you and helping you get started on your personal journey.
