about Our school

To a Festus resident ready for a thrilling, fun, & fulfilling experience,

There are a few simple things that make a good martial arts school a great one. We work our hardest every day to fulfill those things, and give our students the best experience we possibly can. Here's what it takes, and what you can expect when you walk through our doors for the first time:

Knowledgeable, Passionate Instructors.
When hand-picking our instructors, we look for a few key traits: passion for martial arts, passion for teaching, a great personality, and expertise. Our instructors truly care about you and your experience. They're here for every question you have and every challenge that arises.

They'll push you to try your hardest, and motivate you to surpass your limits. Nothing beats having a great teacher - and we have the best.

A Clean, Up-to-Date Facility.
The best teachers in the world won't make up for a dirty facility with run-down equipment. That's why, every day, we thoroughly clean our studio from top to bottom. And we check our equipment to make sure it's in good working order, and replace it when it needs replacing.

Community.
Finally, it takes the right people to make an amazing community. The environment of our school attracts people who are open-minded, enjoy socializing with one another, and enjoy having fun. The parents whose kids train with us are caring and supportive. The adults who train with us are kind and fun. It's like a family here, and we'd love for you to become a part of it.

Browse around our website and learn about our programs. When you find the one that's right for you, you can sign up for a trial online and get started asap. Call and let us know if you have any questions. And I can't wait to meet you in person.

Sincerely,
Kevin Hahn

MMA—or mixed martial arts—was developed for competition and sport. It uses striking techniques, and grappling and wrestling techniques. Fights involve situations where the fighters are either standing or on the ground. MMA's roots go back to ancient Olympics.

It's evolved over the centuries, making its way to Asia, the Pacifc Rim, and Europe in the 1900s. Today, MMA training is used for competitions, or for a great workout that's a ton of fun. Whatever your goals are with MMA - we'll help you get there.
