About Our School

Hi there and welcome,

We’re so happy to share our passion for martial arts and fitness with you! You may know us as the insanely cool Martial Arts center in Tucson, but we wanted to give you more than that. So we created a a safe and inspiring place for fitness-minded folks like you to train at... where you can meet other like-minded people, make friends and have fun! 

Imagine a place where you can feel comfortable knowing that the training is tailored to meet your needs. An environment where you don’t have to wait to use sweaty gym equipment or feel like you’re competing with others. A center that enables you to get in amazing shape, release tension, and have a blast while learning powerful self-defense moves. 

Well, that’s us! We understand your need to be SUPPORTED, to get fit and feel safe on your terms. 

Whether you want to shed some extra weight, feel empowered with martial arts or simply try something new and FUN, this program is perfect for adults at any age and fitness level. Especially beginners!

You’ll feel amazing and we’re excited to be part of your life-changing martial arts journey. Below are a few additional ways your life is about to get awesome with us… 

#1 Gain Tremendous Confidence

Working out is tough. Heck, the commute to and from work can be tough - let alone changing lifelong habits for fitness and success! But it CAN be done. And we’re gonna help you. 

But we won’t do it for you. We’ll become a team and work together. Whether you want to get fitter or you’re in it to win it and compete in a fitness contest at some point, trying something new is challenging, both physically and mentally.

But...as you push past your limits and listen to your instructors as they inspire and cheer you on...

You will get a HUGE SURGE OF CONFIDENCE! You’ll also get in amazing shape, which gives you a positive and healthy body image, gain a lot more energy and all those “feel good” feelings from moving your body in an entirely new way.

#2 Spot on Focus

Our program is demanding at times and requires your full attention. As you concentrate hard on listening to the instructor, then performing what they taught you, you start to build important links in your brain that improve your ability to focus better and for longer periods of time. 

What’s great is that this intense concentration naturally pours into all other areas of your life too.

Students report being able to not only concentrate better at work, but they’re able to clear their mind at the end of the day a lot more easily.

#3 Head to Toe Fitness

Each class is jam-packed with fun and challenging exercises. But because you're so focused on practicing the moves, and having a blast, you hardly notice it. Before you know it, the class is over, and not only did you learn exciting martial arts, you just got a great workout, too! 

Being physically fit also increases energy, attention span and how you feel about yourself.

#4 Friends & Family

Many martial artists claim they always felt like an “outsider” before they found Martial Arts. Some of our students just never got into organized sports in school or felt that social clubs weren’t for them.

But the same students that tell us how they “never fit in” or weren’t popular seem to rise and shine in class! We provide a safe, accepting environment where we all want each other to succeed. We don’t have bullies or students trying to one up each other.

We are all about support and friendship here. Kids and adults become friends with their classmates and, as a result, our community flourishes.

We provide the kind of environment that fosters camaraderie, encouragement, and motivation. The sense of fitting in and belonging here is more than you can imagine.

#5 Don’t Worry, Be Happy & Have Fun!

Stuck in a fitness rut or tired of hitting up boot camp style classes where you get yelled at? Ugh, who can blame you. Luckily our classes are NOTHING like that. Action-packed and totally fun, focused on your success, and always changing. No two workouts are the same and we always use positive motivation.

No military style yelling or body shaming, ever.

Both kids and adults both work hard, but also play hard. Laughing, smiles, and high fives are part of every class.

Make the next chapter of your life amazing! We want you to succeed with us, so we’re offering a limited time 100% money back guarantee on all web specials.

Yup, that’s how much we believe in you. Scroll up to the top of this page and click on the program that's right for you. Snag the super-sweet web special and try us out. If we’re not for you, no worries. You get 100% of your money back. No ifs ands or buts.

Both men and women in our community come to these adult martial arts classes for lots of reasons. Some have encountered dangerous situations where they felt hopeless. They wanted to gain the skills and techniques required for safety and protection. Most of all, they wanted to no longer feel helpless. Others want fitness.

Martial arts is a great workout - training you to use your body in new ways, boosting lean muscle development, accelerating fat loss, improved stamina, all while improving balance and coordination. With a focus on discipline, self-respect, and profound inner-growth you'll have all of the building blocks for a amazing self-defense practice and a happy, fit life.

Tucson Mat-Fit Fitness Kickboxing is such a powerful way to lose weight, get fit, and get in shape! These classes develop strength and stamina in your arms, your core, and your legs. That's because every kickboxing move works your entire body. Even a punch requires the twisting of the hips, which builds core strength, and the stability of the legs, increasing strength overall.

Amazing bodyweight exercises, passionate staff to push you and motivate you to do your best all wrapped into one action-packed experience - this program is definitely a must have for achieving head turning results!

You can call our Tucson kids martial arts classes "family classes" because the parents of our students love these classes as much as their kids. And why not when the end-result is discipline and great sense of respect for kids of all ages! We focus on a well-rounded student; well behaved everywhere and a good performer in school.

Kids love our martial arts classes because we blend fun activities and games, and still dedicate pure focus time to learn new techniques while perfecting the old ones.

So school's out and you're looking for the coolest camp around to send your kid to, right? We've got you covered with our Martial Arts Summer Camp. Every day your child will learn powerful self-defense skills... get a healthy dose of fitness... make friends...

... and learn all about important life lessons like discipline, goal setting, focus & concentration, and more. We give kids the perfect blend of structure and “running free”. Call us now to learn more. But hurry! We sell out fast, and I'd hate for you to miss out.
