About Our School

Martial Arts Logo

To a Cranford 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,
Mario Cesario

Martial arts for adults are systems and traditions of combat and defense that are practiced for a number of reasons, including: fitness, competition, self-defense, physical health, mental growth, and spiritual development.

Martial arts teach hand-to-hand combat, weapons combat, and defense when facing both of these. Whatever your goals are, our dedicated instructors will help you get there. Every class will make you physically stronger, mentally tougher, and spiritually more peaceful and tranquil.

Many kids just aren't cut out for team sports. Either they're not as athletic as the other kids, simply don't enjoy the pressure and competition, or just prefer athletics where they can learn and grow at their own paces. Kids like this who are put into team sports often experience devastating blows to their self-esteems.

They feel like they're “letting the team down”, and as such, feel lots of guilt and shame. Martial arts is an amazing alternative for kids like this. Kids learn and advance through the belt ranks at their own speeds. They get great exercise, but if they're not athletic, they're not “holding anyone back.” As such, martial arts is a great self-esteem booster for kids who just aren't cut out for team sports.

Parents are absolutely crazy about our Cranford kids martial arts program. That's because their kids are getting so much more than self-defense skills in each and every class...

They're learning how to set goals, and use discipline to accomplish them... They're learning that diplomacy and peace can be used 99% of the time to avoid violence... And they're gaining a profound sense of self-respect and respect for others. It's truly life-changing.
