 Adult Physical Fitness/Weight Loss/Self Defense Program

Life is stressful, and the gym is boring and isn’t giving you the results you want. A personal trainer that charges huge fees for holding a clipboard just isn’t worth it. The workouts you will receive here, whether it’s in Mixed Martial Arts, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Kickboxing, Boxing, or Wrestling, will literally change your life. Each class contains muscle toning, cardio, flexibility and nutrition. We will personally guarantee that you will get in the best shape of your life while relieving stress. 

You might feel intimidated to call and come in, but don’t let that stop you. When you meet our friendly staff and professional, courteous instructors, you will have wished you would’ve done this years ago. The confidence you receive here isn’t the same as flexing your biceps or doing 60 min on the elliptical… this is real. Knowing that you are bettering your physical fitness and developing skills that will help you be able to protect your loved ones is something the regular gym can’t provide. This is the real deal. Call or text 952-457-7743 or opt in right now.

Kids Confidence Building/Self Discipline/Character Building/Self Defense Course

Your kids on the other hand are a different story. As they start to break away from you its heartbreaking (I have 6 kids, so I know the deal). As social media becomes an obsession, and the bullies and friends that may or may not be a good influence creep into their life, you are now in second place, if you’re lucky.

At American School of Martial Arts, we re-enforce the good old fashioned American Values that just aren’t taught anymore. We teach your children that there are winners and losers, not everyone is equal, that they are held accountable by the accomplishments that they achieve, that they need to strive for greatness and they have to work hard… sorry, no trophies or medals for just showing up.

Confidence will be developed when your kids train and escape positions. By learning and understanding the power of Mixed Martial Arts, they will then start to develop true confidence… not the false sense of confidence because someone tells them it works or because they scream, “Yes, sir!” a lot, like traditional karate schools. After a few months of consistent training and developing technical skill sets, that they test in a safe environment, their confidence will build to a greater degree with each class, because the training is real and they will feel newfound power and confidence.

We do have a belt system for our Mixed Martial Arts program, but we do not give out black belts to those under 18. Having little Johnny who is 10, strap on a black belt, to me is a sin. A black belt is a right of passage. You can’t vote until you are 18 (I think you should have to take a test), can’t drive until you are 16, can’t drink until you are 21… A black belt shoulders that same responsibility. 

At least once a year I have had an 8-12 year old karate or Tae Kwon Do black belt come to me after getting spanked by the neighborhood bully or get taken down by a wrestler and not know how to get out… what happens to that childs confidence after that? What does he think of his black belt now… not a whole lot.

We teach our kids that this is for self defense only, buy hey, sometimes kids will be kids and test this stuff no matter if they train Karate, Tae Kwon Do, Kung Fu or any other assorted martial arts program. The difference is that our Mixed Martial Arts program isn’t martial arts theory, it’s martial arts fact. Our Mixed Martial Arts program comes with the best character development, along with cutting edge self defense. So call or text 952-457-7743 or opt in right now.

Character development for children happens through our kids mixed martial arts program. Your children will learn Mixed Martial Arts, which is a mix of Thai Boxing, Boxing, Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, and Wrestling. Along with awesome self defense, they will learn how to become leaders, to speak in public, to set goals, self discipline, honor and integrity. We are like an athletic Sylvan Learning Center! Our kids classes are the best in the Twin Cities area. We specialize in teaching kids with ADD and ADHD. Anyone can teach an adult who WANTS to learn, but it takes a different temperament to teach children. Our instructors are some of the best children’s instructors around.
