About Our School

Welcome to the Online Home of our Florence Martial Arts School.

Dear Friend,

In a moment, I'm going to tell you a surprising, though classic, tale of martial arts. It reveals how martial arts is not just about punches, kicks & self-defense...

... but how it's an incredibly transforming way of life.

Now, while the names have been left out of this story, I assure you of its truth. And from my many years in the martial arts world, I can tell you that this story has happened hundreds...

... if not thousands of times in the past.

And while this story is about a child, and what happened when martial arts entered his life, it applies just as strongly to adults of all ages, shapes and sizes.

Without further ado, here's the tale.

There was once a child who simply “drifted” through life. Nothing excited him too much, and nothing upset him too much. He was even keel. On the surface this seemed fine...

... but his parents began to worry. Nothing seemed to ignite any passion in this child. Nothing lit his “inner fire”. And as hard as the parents tried to find something that would... the child quickly lost interest in anything he was involved with.

Then the parents caught wind of martial arts. Perhaps it was through talking to other parents, or perhaps they came across a website like this one.

Whatever it was that brought them to martial arts - they became eternally grateful for it.

Because within one week of martial arts training, their son was a completely different person.

His smile was brighter. He couldn't wait for martial arts class every day. He became disciplined, respectful, and focused. He practiced with all of his heart in class, and with equal passion at home.

Through striving to learn every move - and advance through the ranks - he learned goal setting, ambition, confidence, and focus.

His grades improved. His relationship with his friends, parents, teachers and everyone else improved.

He was growing into a fine young man. One who was gaining the skills for success in all areas of life.

Now, as I mentioned, this story applies to more than just children. It applies to men and women in their 30s, 40s, 50s and up. It applies to teenagers. It applies even to children as young as 4 and 5.

Martial arts isn't just punches and kicks. It's a way of life. It's about reaching out for whatever you want in life, and having the discipline to do the hard work that it takes to succeed.

Here in our Florence martial arts school - we strive to teach every one of our students these powerful life skills.

That way you can live more strongly, confidently, and more happily.

I hope to see you soon for your first class. Then you can see what I'm talking about firsthand.

Florence Fitness kickboxing is such a powerful way to lose weight, get fit, and get in shape. These cardio kickboxing classes develop strength and stamina in your arms, your core, and your legs. Thats because every kickboxing move works almost your entire body. Even a punch requires the twisting of the hips, which builds core / ab strength, and the stability of the legs, increasing strength there as well.

When you combine that with our great body-weight exercises, passionate staff who will push you and motivate you to do your best, and fun atmosphere - this program is definitely a great one for achieving your results.
