Local Adult Members from Allen Park and the local Detroit Metro Area have been telling us for years that their martial arts training (karate, tae kwon do, kickboxing) gives them an advantage in business!
We have lots of success stories from around the state of Michigan where our members have leveraged the goal-setting, discipline, focus, and (most of all) CONFIDENCE to help them get ahead in business, their jobs, and their lives!
Of course, adults are attracted to our classes because of fitness, self-defense, an interest in the martial arts, and to have fun. But, the benefits don't end there...
Let us know if we can ever answer any questions. Just call us at:

Local Allen Park and other Downriver - Detroit Area Parents have been telling us for decades that our classes help their kids get better grades in school!
We're not surprised by this. If you think about it, advancing in karate, tae kwon do, and other martial arts takes discipline, focus, determination, and long-term perseverance. That's exactly what we teach and reinforce!
So why wouldn't children in our classes see improvements in their Academic Performance?
We even award a Merit Patch for "Academic Excellence!" That's because we VALUE strong academic achievement and other life skills.
Just like you do.

Allen Park Martial Arts Center Adult Class (Tae Kwon Do, Karate, Krav Maga, Kickboxing)
We know that there are a lot of reasons that adult members seek out martial arts classes.
Some look for personal safety training - primarily to learn self-defense, so that they can be prepared for physical confrontation.
Others look at martial arts as a way to develop personal discipline and focus, so that they can learn to achieve important goals and commitments in other areas of their life.
Of course, many adults are looking for something fun to do! They've seen years worth of martial arts movies and T.V. shows and would love to learn some cool moves... and maybe meet some new people.
These are all excellent reasons to try an introductory program at Allen Park Martial Arts Center.
But, some of the most popular reasons ADULT MEMBERS SEEK OUT OUR MARTIAL ARTS CLASSES is to increase their HEALTH/WELLNESS and FITNESS levels, as well as, help to reduce their WEIGHT and STRESS levels!
Regular exercise (increased movement, cardiovascular exercise, body-weight exercises) can help to improve overall fitness and wellness - while at the same time contribute to reducing weight and stress levels.
But these things are only effective if you do them! And, you'll only do them if they're fun - and you enjoy it!
Our classes work because they are FUN! Plus, you're not really focused on the exercise - you're focused on the LEARNING!
The exercise is a by-product (so you don't even realize you're doing it!).
That's the true magic.
Give it a try! We have a 6-Week Introductory Package for New Adult Members (so that you can see for yourself).

We all hear them. Sometimes they're loud and clear, and sometimes they're soft and discreet - but they're always lurking in the backs of our minds!
What, you ask? Those pesky voices in our heads that tell us, "you can't do it." "You're too old." "You're too young." You're not "smart enough," "rich enough," "experienced enough," "GOOD ENOUGH!"
They're called LIMITING BELIEFS - and they live in our imaginations, always ready to undermine our best ideas. And, these creatures are good at what they do! They're professionals.
They can talk us out of ANYTHING!
The first thing that you learn in Professional Coaching School is that LIMITING BELIEFS DON'T REALLY EXIST! That's right. They're like the "monsters" that used to live under your bed when you were a child.
They seemed real - but they were just a figure of your childhood imagination.
Your parents knew that there were no monsters under your bed. If you were lucky, they turned on the light, looked to make sure - and then showed you - to prove it to you.
That's what your coach will do too -- expose that your limiting beliefs are just a FIGMENT OF YOUR IMAGINATION!
Pretty cool, huh?
Watch this amazing video of GrandMaster B.C. Yu at the age of 82, and see how he SMASHED the limiting beliefs of Master Kevin and so many others!
GrandMaster B.C. Yu (click), is considered by some to be the "Father of Tae Kwon Do in Michigan." He was the original instructor to so many of the current Masters and GrandMasters (or their teachers) in the state of Michigan and beyond. For 55 years, he has had a tremendous influence on the development of martial arts in the entire Metropolitan Detroit area - especially Wayne County, Downriver areas, such as Allen Park, Taylor, Dearborn, Lincoln Park, Wyandotte, Southgate, Riverview, Dearborn Heights, Huron Township, Garden City, and more! He still attends APMAC as a guest instructor to this day! It's another reason why we have one of the most famous and successful martial arts schools in the entire area - for over 20 years running!
Yes! Predators can be found in every neighborhood - even nice ones like ours - in and around Allen Park and the local community.
That's why at Allen Park Martial Arts Center, we believe everyone should learn (at least SOME basic) Self-Defense!
Predators can come in many forms, but no matter what form they come in, there is one thing you can be sure of. They will likely out number you, or be bigger and stronger than you, (or at least think they are).
Before predator’s attack, they think and act like animals, and animals are not going to attack when they think they can lose.
Krav Maga Self Defense Can Stop an Attack EVEN Before it Happens! The confidence you gain from training when training in Krav Maga will stop you from projecting fear.
This new-found lack of fear, and confidence in your ability to stop an attacker, or two or three, will send a powerful signal to predators to MOVE ON!
The Krav Maga Self Defense System is your perfect weapon against violent assaults. It does not matter if you are smaller and lighter than your attacker. Or if you are female, against male attackers.
That's why we teach Krav Maga - self-defense as part of our Adult Martial Arts Program - even for beginners - (Monday & Wednesday evenings and Saturday mornings)!
...And our members love it! That's why we have one of the largest and most popular adult martial arts programs - anywhere in the Detroit area (Wayne County, Downriver, Dearborn, Taylor, Riverview, Wyandotte, Southgate, or anywhere around Allen Park)!

Have you ever noticed when kids just run, play, and basically go nuts they can’t help but laugh and let go?
Kid’s love to be free to move and make noise, express themselves with all kinds of weird expressions and body movements.
But you know how that goes, too much of a good thing (like eating too much of cake and candy) can turn out to make you feel miserable!
The Secret is when kids learn how to regulate themselves so they don’t overdo it. It’s when they learned to live in balance, not the excess, that they truly feel happy throughout our day.
Our Secret at Allen Park Martial Arts Center is that Martial Arts Training is Serious Fun!
Yet, we combine all the energy releasing movements with structure and organization that teaches your child self-control.
They enjoy themselves even more in an environment that they get to yell, kick, punch and jump, but then also have to rein it all in and stand at attention while the instructor speaks.
This teaches them to self-regulate and they love it! Kids understand and enjoy this sense of personal power they are developing!
That's why our Karate Kids and even toddlers (young as just under 4 years old), come from all over the Downriver, Detroit Metropolitan Area - such as Allen Park, Dearborn, Trenton, Riverview, Wyandotte, Lincoln Park, and Canton - and other parts of Wayne County to participate in our highly acclaimed youth martial arts programs! Ask around... you'll hear some great things!
