Olympia Martial Arts Builds Young Minds and Bodies

Children love learning at U.S. Martial Arts Center in Olympia, WA. Our kids martial arts programs are high-energy, fun and interactive.

The overarching goal of the Olympia Martial Arts school is to build our students’ self-esteem, which we do by acknowledging, recognizing and rewarding not just our students’ accomplishments and successes, but their efforts as well.

Learning martial arts is a physical endeavor, involving all muscle groups to help develop a student’s physical fitness. But our emphasis goes far beyond just learning physical moves and martial arts techniques. At U.S. Martial Arts Center, we use martial arts as a mechanism to develop positive character and life-improvement skills in our students.

Our martial arts Olympia emphasis is on the personal-development aspects of martial arts, such as increasing self confidence, improving focus and concentration, developing self discipline, and optimizing physical fitness.

Life Lessons Developed Through Martial Arts Olympia

Classes at Olympia Martial Arts end with group discussions and role-playing exercises. We touch on life lessons and discuss alternate resolutions to some of the issues children face today. These issues are discussed in a non-threatening, proactive way.
