Thunder Martial Arts

Hello we are Thunder Martial Arts!

Martial Arts, Meditation, Yoga & Fun!

All kids begin learning the philosophy of martial arts - which starts with respect. Respect is at the core of what we teach - respect for each other, for family and for ourselves.

The class is taught using positive reinforcement, and the most up-to-date teaching approaches. Kids will develop focus, balance, cooperation, impulse control, compassion, hand-eye coordination, all of which help create a strong foundation. We also work on meditation to build self-control and process big feelings. It's a non-contact class, using pads and obstacles, in a safe environment.

We not only teach children but adults as well.

Some benefits for adults are help with stress relief, a fun work out, flexibility, self-defence, self-confidence, self care, increased positive mood, improve your heart health, lose weight, improved core strength, plus so much more.
