They are great kids but they just don’t listen, often being told to do something a hundred times before they actually do anything.

They’re bright and intelligent, yet have trouble paying attention at home, in school or in any important situation, even being classified as an “ADD” or “ADHD” child.

They are simply shy and lack the confidence and self-esteem needed to live up to their full potential.

What if you could empower your child with a safe, natural, and extremely effective way to positively impact every aspect of their life? Without the need for medicine, therapy, harsh actions, or trying to convince them to change their behavior? Instead, what if you could give them the gift of self-discipline, hard work, confidence, and respect, all while promoting health and fitness?


That's the power of martial arts classes.

Have you ever noticed how kids are like sponges? They can learn and pick up new things so quickly and easily, way more than adults can! And that's especially true in martial arts classes. After just one class, parents often see a noticeable difference in their kids. And the more classes they attend, the more they grow and learn.


Not only are they getting healthier as they learn martial arts, they’re also learning the value of self-discipline and respect. When you enroll your child in a martial arts class, you’re giving them much more than the physical skills we teach. You’re giving them the opportunity to thrive.

"We tried Cutting Edge for first time this past week. The owner, Brandon, went out of his way to make sure both my children were challenged within their physical ability and encouraged in confidence and respect. They talked the entire drive home about class with the younger saying she wishes she had powers to rewind her life so she could do it over and over again. Thankfully, we can!
Absolutely incredible experience!"
