About Our School

Welcome to the Online Home of
our San Diego Martial Arts School.

Dear Friend,

In a moment, I'm going to tell you a surprising, though classic, tale of martial arts. It reveals how martial arts is not just about punches, kicks & self-defense...

... but how it's an incredibly transforming way of life.

Now, while the names have been left out of this story, I assure you of its truth. And from my many years in the martial arts world, I can tell you that this story has happened hundreds...

... if not thousands of times in the past.

And while this story is about a child, and what happened when martial arts entered his life, it applies just as strongly to adults of all ages, shapes and sizes.

Without further ado, here's the tale.

There was once a child who simply “drifted” through life. Nothing excited him too much, and nothing upset him too much. He was even keel. On the surface this seemed fine...

... but his parents began to worry. Nothing seemed to ignite any passion in this child. Nothing lit his “inner fire”. And as hard as the parents tried to find something that would... the child quickly lost interest in anything he was involved with.

Then the parents caught wind of martial arts. Perhaps it was through talking to other parents, or perhaps they came across a website like this one.

Whatever it was that brought them to martial arts - they became eternally grateful for it.

Because within one week of martial arts training, their son was a completely different person.

His smile was brighter. He couldn't wait for martial arts class every day. He became disciplined, respectful, and focused. He practiced with all of his heart in class, and with equal passion at home.

Through striving to learn every move - and advance through the ranks - he learned goal setting, ambition, confidence, and focus.

His grades improved. His relationship with his friends, parents, teachers and everyone else improved.

He was growing into a fine young man. One who was gaining the skills for success in all areas of life.

This story relates to more than kids. It relates to men and women of any age, shape, or walk of life. It relates to teens. And it even relates to kids younger than the one from the story, as young as 4 and 5.

Martial arts is more than fists and feet. It's your attitude. It's how you approach life. It's having the ability to think big enough to set big goals and the discipline to do the work required to achieve them.

That's what our San Diego martial arts academy is all about. You can learn to "fight" anywhere. You can get "fit" anywhere. But it's rare to find a place that helps you grow on the inside too, and develop inner-strength and character.

I'm excited to see you soon for your very 1st class. I know you're going to love it.

To your success,
- Joe Carroll
