About Our School

The 5 Unexpected, Life-Altering
Effects of Martial Arts.

Hi and welcome!

Want to take control of your life but have been unsure of how to do that? Perhaps you're looking for a new outlet for your kids to work off some of that extra energy, while learning and growing, in a positive and motivating environment.

Maybe you just want to do something amazing, fun, and exciting for yourself because you ARE worth it.

Our Riverside Martial Arts school can certainly help you with all of those things.

At first glance, most people think Martial Arts is a way to get fit and learn self-defense...which is true...but...

Martial arts is so much more than just kicks and punches! Can you imagine how amazing your life will be with enhanced physical fitness, improved mental focus and clearer thinking, lightning fast reflexes, and a healthier body to take you well into your golden years?

Luckily, we don’t have to imagine it because we see these things in action. Every. Single. Day.

Our students continuously tell us how Martial Arts enriches their lives in ways most people are not prepared for. Seriously. And it will do the same for you.

These life-changing benefits are more "subtle" than the physical benefits you see from our classes. While you can see lean muscle forming, and feel the effects of cardio training within the first week, the benefits below are felt on a deeply personal level. And with some phenomenal (positive!) side effects.

Just by reading this far, you have proven that you are ready to take a chance on yourself, leap feet first into the action-packed world of Martial Arts, and live a truly amazing life!

Change can be scary but we’ll be there the entire time to guide you and support you. You CAN have it all, and we can’t wait to be there with you to hear all about it.

Here are a few life-changing benefits you can expect…

More Confidence

One of the first things both children AND adults notice when training with us is a big boost in confidence. And it makes sense when you think about it.

After all, martial arts is challenging. Yet when you persevere in the face of challenge, and come out on top, you realize you're stronger and more capable than you thought.

Realizing that makes you feel more confident. You feel more sure of your ability to handle whatever other challenges life throws your way.

This goes for kids, too. Their confidence boosts quickly as well.

Tons of Focus

Because the techniques are challenging, they require your full attention. You have to concentrate hard on listening to the instructor, then performing what they taught you.

The neat thing is that this intense focus naturally pours into all other areas of your life too.

Adults find themselves focusing more easily at work. Kids pay better attention and focus more in school. And all of that turns into greater SUCCESS for YOU.

Your Best Fitness Ever

No matter what your starting fitness level is, each one of our students improves from where they were when they took their first class. From total beginner to elite athletes. We strive to make sure each class is loaded with challenging and fun exercises that work your entire body.

You’ll be so focused on performing the techniques that some of the world’s top performing martial artists do, and having so much FUN, that before you know it, the class is over, and you not only learned powerful martial arts...

... but you got a great workout, too! Being physically fit BOOSTS energy and mental clarity. It REDUCES stress and anxiety… and so much more.

Community Matters

What do you think of when you hear the word community? We think of a group of like minded students, struggling through tough training times together, celebrating successes together, and encouraging each other no matter what. We think of teamwork and truly belonging no matter what your background is.

We're a tight-knit group here and our students are all about support. We provide the kind of environment that fosters friendship, encouragement, and motivation.

Awesome FUN Times!

Ugh...fitness can be so boring! Luckily, we’re working out like super-star martial artists. Learning to use our entire body to protect ourselves and our families. In our awesome classes you’ll tighten up your core, gain lean muscle on your legs and arms, and have a blast.

No two workouts are ever the same and we DON'T use military style yelling or body shaming. After all we want you to have a ton of fun here, and keep coming back. Plus, our instructors know they’ll get the best possible performance out of you when you’re in a good mood. That’s when we’re at our best too!

Kids and adults both work hard, and play hard. Laughing and smiles are part of every class.

Let your kid feel like a total rock star with our awesome kids birthday package. It's a fun, educational, structured birthday party involving martial arts... crazy-cool fun & games... pizza (of course!)... and more. Plus your kid will be the one-and-only star of the show!

These Riverside Krav Maga classes are not just martial art classes! They were developed out of the mid-1930s Jewish history in a time of great need. Imi Sde-Or, a pro boxer and wrestler of Eastern European Jewish origin, used to defend Jewish citizens against anti-Semitic thugs in Bratislava on the street. He took his experience as an Olympian and street fighter and developed Krav Maga.

Imi Sde-Or developed Krav Maga after realizing that the "real world" had no place for sport fighting. That's why Krav Maga techniques focus on self-defense by using natural instincts of the body for self-protection. Our Riverside Krav Maga classes will put you in great shape for self-protection too.
