“Black Belt – a white belt that never quit.” (Unknown)

“Given enough time, any man may master the physical.

With enough knowledge, any man may become wise.

It is the true warrior who can master both…

and surpass the result.” (Tien T’ai)

Arts International martial arts classes are one hour in length and are Faith based in structured for the whole family, ages 3 to 99 years.

​ 

    Arts International incorporates a safe and modern approach to teaching traditional martial arts. We stress non-violent conflict resolution, how to avoid dangerous situations, and practical self-defense techniques for getting away from a range of situations.

     A lot of parents think that our martial arts classes are for kids only, without realizing that at Arts International, we teach the same technical curriculum for both children and adults.

    Whether you are 8, 38 or 68 years old… our family martial arts classes are a terrific way for you and your children to learn together in a safe environment.  You will train, work hard, and learn on your own while your family practices, too.
