THE STRONGHOLD FORMULA
One of the misconceptions about martial arts is that you need to be athletic, fit, strong, or aggressive to excel. In fact, the two most important things to excel in martial arts are dedication and intelligence.
Our program is designed and taught to help every student learn to execute techniques in a relaxed manner while using as little strength as possible. Our coaches train with the students every day to create positive bonds and feedback loops to improve technique.
We value open communication regarding everything from ranks, to techniques, to how your body is feeling on a day to day basis. Our aim is to provide a system of techniques that everyone can learn and use while providing a personal touch not found at other gyms.
