The vision of Poise Martial Arts is to build a community by helping people get in shape, be safe and at the same time instill the life skills and character of a true martial artist while upholding important values like courtesy, patience, respect, self-control, and integrity. Poise Martial Arts will also help students achieve self- discipline, high self-esteem, a positive outlook… an attitude of constant improvement and an attitude that refuses to give up. These values and life skills will lead to remarkable improvements in academics, careers and relationships, literally making a better community one black belt at a time. InMartial Arts the only person you are competing with is YOURSELF. Students come to us from ages 4 to 64. Some students are in shape, while others are overweight. Some come for self- defense, fitness, the sport and others for fun. Each person is treated equal, and is trained to the best at their own ability and potential. A student is never compared to anyone else. Our instructors are there to guide, instruct and motivate you to be the best that you can be.
