We're located in McGee's Crossroads at Exit 319/I-40 & Hwy 210, and just minutes from Cleveland 40/42, Angier, Benson, Four Oaks and Smithfield! 


Our students learn valuable life lessons with ongoing personal development and life changing goal setting. We teach students how to be their best in life and how to achieve goals that were once thought unobtainable. Our students gain high levels of self-confidence, self-esteem, self-respect and respect for others while gaining self-discipline and perseverance through our very effective martial arts and self-defense program.


Our students learn how to be good listeners from the focus they gain while training in the class. This could give them an edge with higher grades in school, college or a promotion at work.  Our students become confident in themselves and contribute to a better world. They also find themselves in better physical shape, with more friends and less stress in their life due to their martial arts training. We empower our students to excel in the martial arts and then become teachers of the martial arts.


We're a black belt and above school. In order to be the best of the best you have to put your mind in gear to achieving the goal you set for yourself. It takes hard work and perseverance and really pays off when you obtain that goal; for example, a black belt or Master black belt.


We can help you achieve the goal of black belt and above, instructor or even Master instructor. Why are you waiting? Now is the time to start. Get in shape while making new friends, while learning how to live your life, learning how to defend yourself and learning how to set and achieve longtime goals for yourself. We teach goal achievement, this will help with any non-martial arts goals you have as well. Please give us a call to learn more or schedule a free trial class and a discounted two month trial period.


You, your family and your friends could really benefit from this training!
