Bloomington Martial Arts group of students

Message from School Owner Shane Bosstick

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 Sense of 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.
