Tremendously Fun Classes

All our classes at Crabapple Martial Arts Academy are immensely fun for our students. Even when classes become hard, and the students are having to sweat through push-ups and sit-ups, our staff find countless ways to keep students involved, motivated, and most importantly having fun. We have created many many drills and exercises which seem like games, but in practice actually provide the students with physical fitness, martial arts skills, as well as build reaction time and impulse control.

LISTEN TO WHAT OUR HAPPY PARENTS ARE SAYING

  • Our family loves this dojo! Great instruction, super positive experiences from the youngest to the oldest, and a great community of students and instructors.

  • 2 of my kids are current students here and we cannot speak highly enough about our experience so far. In the 5 months that we have been a part of the Crabapple Martial Arts Academy family we have already seen growth in both kids not only in their physical skills, but also in their confidence and character. We love that this dojo encourages abilities both on and off the mat, in working hard and giving your best effort, to leadership, healthy eating, reading, helping around the house and learning to see the needs of others. It's a great feeling to know that there are other adults that are pushing and encouraging my children to grow in the areas that we as their parents are also instilling at home. It really does take a village, and we are honored to be a part of this one!

  • It has been such a pleasure to partner with the awesome teachers & leaders at Crabapple Martial Arts Academy for the past 5 years of my son's Karate training. I have watched my son's confidence grow and leadership skill develop through this awesome program. We found a home in this Dojo!
