So incredibly thankful that our family found The 1-2 Punch. EVERYTHING you guys do is amazing!! I'm not solely interested in my daughter learning self defense, but more so life skills, social skills and character building. Your school and staff are incredible and we just love what you've done for our family. The experience you have and the wisdom you share is second to none. We are so happy and proud to know you and be part of your organization. You are a rare breed Master Domino and we are all better having your influence in our daily lives!! Thank you for ALL you do!! To any parent who is maybe looking for something more than just self defense, look no further. You're in good hands!!

The 1-2 Punch Family is amazing! Everyone makes you feel so welcome and encourages you to do your best! I have gotten in incredible shape from going to kickboxing and I have made a new family. I would highly recommend people to join and see their lives change for the better.

Can't believe I haven't left a review for the place I spend maybe the second most time next to my actual job. My son and I are into our 4th year with Master Domino and staff. In that time, I managed to lose 40 lbs at one point, (a lot is back, but the holidays just passed!) earn my black belt, and am now an assistant instructor. My son, who plays many sports, loves karate most, and is on his way to his black belt. My wife now does kickboxing here as well. The staff are wonderful people, (me included) very helpful, and accomodating. Honestly, we feel like family. Health and family, what more could you ask for?

Ok I can't love this place enough!! I joined to help shed the baby weight from my second pregnancy and it is literally up the street from my house, with being a new mom I needed something close by and the hours work for my schedule because I can only workout in the late evenings. All the instructors are amazing!!! I was so fearful of starting and looking stupid working out, but they all make you feel comfortable and encourage you so much.

The Positive Effects of Martial Arts for a Child in School

Grade school can be quite the experience for any child. It is a place where a child not
only learns academically but one where a child must learn to socialize and function in
the world. Unfortunately, there are a lot of negative experiences that a child may
have when going through school. Whatever those experiences may be, it would be a
good idea to have a child participate in martial arts classes. Doing so will give them
the tools they need to survive the school experience. The benefits associated with
taking martial arts classes are essential for them to be able to have a positive
experience in school.

Helps them earn better grades in school

Getting good grades is reflective of a child’s comprehension of the material. But, it is
also indicative of their discipline and responsibility traits. Through martial arts,
students are to learn the fundamentals of stretch and physical routines. They also
learn to become disciplined with practice and keeping up with their cleanliness of
uniforms. Children learn how to be punctual and can focus their daily thoughts on the
tasks at hand. Thus, being able to exhibit these positive traits will translate to better
grades as schooling requires the proficiency of these characteristics.
Gives them the confidence to stand up to bullies
Bullying is a very prominent and unfortunate experience that many children will
either witness or become victims of in their lifetimes. Being a part of martial arts can
give children the strength and confidence that they need to stand up to these
negative individuals. Not only will they learn about self-defense strategies, they will
be able to feel assertive and courageous. Possessing self-confidence is the number
one way for a child to be able to stand up for him/herself in any threatening
situation. Through martial arts, they will learn that not all conflicts have to be
physical. They will possess the mature mindset to tackle any conflict with assurance
and pride.

Gives them the ability to make friends

Having friends and keeping them can be the big difference between a positive and
negative school experience for children. They will latch onto people who share
common interests with them and feel devastated when those relationships disappear.
However, for children who regularly practice martial arts, they have a different
capacity to make and keep friends in their circle. Besides making friends in the
martial arts classes themselves, children are able to easily socialize and collaborate
with other students at school. They instill a lot of the same discipline and traits they
learn from martial arts in their everyday lives. For instance, they may be first to
initiate a conversation with quiet students because they feel confident in themselves
to do so.
Being a part of something special such as martial arts can be greatly impactful for
children. Especially when it comes to school, children can gain invaluable skills and
behaviors that will allow them to have more successful experiences in social settings.
Although school is meant to teach them about a variety of things, having martial arts
as a supplement can significantly affect the way they approach schooling and their
overall experiences.
