Excellent instruction from all the coaches. They are knowledgeable and patient, and always willing to walk you through the moves. I've been going to the kickboxing class for about 3 years and I've definitely gained muscles! The best part is that it's still just as fun and challenging as it was when I first started. Never gets old.

Absolute has made a huge impact on my family. Before joining, I was intimidated by kickboxing classes but after one class I realized my fear had no merit - the folks at Absolute are like family now. I am stronger, healthier, more confident and happier than I was before, and I have made some amazing friends. Even on those days I don't want to get off the couch, once I get to the studio my whole attitude is changed and I am pumped. Absolute is always adding new classes, new sessions, and holding events & contests for us to stay engaged. It's been over 4 years for me and it never gets old!

My two sons joined me over a year ago - one in Jiu Jitzu and one in kids class - and both have shown tremendous growth. Ms Ana and the kids class have brought out the best in my 1st grader, teaching him respect, determination and pride in accomplishments. We love Absolute!

My middle daughter has been enrolled a little over a month and she loves it. I just signed up her sister for kickboxing too! Great family atmosphere, and great structure for the kids!

Such a fantastic place! The people are so welcoming here, that they take the intimidation out of learning something new, especially as an adult learning - and they really care about teaching you and pushing you to be your best. Absolutely love coming here for classes, seeing everyone weekly, and learning Muay Thai!

Academic Achievement

The martial artist takes their talents with them everywhere they go. This includes the classroom. Indeed the skills that are learned in martial arts scale well to academic learning. Here are several ways that the martial artist finds themselves well-equipped for scholastic achievement. 

The Martial Artist is better at Focusing

So much of martial arts relies on the student’s ability to shut out distractions and focus on a single person or object. This could mean a sparring partner but it could also mean a school textbook, a teacher, a lesson plan. Even a test. 

Martial arts have even been seen as a way to help young children suffering from ADHD. Though research is limited to this point it does appear that the combination of exertion and mental discipline experienced in these physical art forms is improving the focus of children who struggle in this department the most.

They are Prepared for Stress

Stress can be a real grade killer especially when it comes time to take an important test. Martial artists learn special breathing techniques that are designed to calm them and clear the mind even in the face of difficult or stressful situations. 

Martial Artists are Prepared to Work Hard

Successful martial artists are nothing if not hard workers. They are in the habit of never settling for less than their best—a virtue that is just as useful in the classroom as it is in the gym.

Confidence

Finally martial arts also just gives young children a sense of confidence that can seep into all aspects of their life. As the student pushes themselves to new limits they get a sense of what they can accomplish through hard work. They are then able to approach other situations with similar confidence understanding that if they work hard in school they can achieve their goals
