You Deserve Training That is Specifically Designed to Help You Achieve Your Goals

  • Is it challenging to decide which fitness program or martial arts school is the best for you?
  • Are you struggling to find a program that will motivate you and meet your specific needs?
  • Do you want more from your fitness routine than just lifting weights or hopping on the treadmill?
  • Are you looking for a martial arts program that is crafted just for you?
  • Did your last fitness effort flop?
  • Have you tried other trainers, only to find out your needs are not their top priority?
  • Are you tired of finding yourself in yet another cookie-cutter program?

If you’ve experienced the above or other challenges, it’s not your fault. There’s a lot of information out there, and it can be confusing. Many times information overload keeps many people from success. On top of that, the system of unqualified, under-experienced, profit-focused fitness trainers and public martial arts schools shoveling out cookie-cutter programs is broken. If you’ve ever thought that they actually want you to fail, you’re probably right. They don’t benefit from you succeeding.

It’s time to overcome a system that’s stacked against you.

So that’s what we are here for. The difference with Martial Bodies is that we actually care about your success and truly want to see you livig the life of your dreams. We think that you deserve martial arts training that is specifically designed to help you achieve your goals. We listen to you because you matter to us. You deserve training customized for you and your desires, rather than a one-size-fits-all program designed to line the pockets of the unqualified, profit-focused trainers, gyms, and public martial arts schools. Even if we’re not the right fit, we will be happy to help you find the solution that is the right fit for you.

What Others Are Saying

I was trying to lose weight, but nothing seemed to work. I hated myself, and I was giving up on life. David listened to me, and really cared about helping me. He created a custom plan focused on what I wanted and needed – instead of what others thought I needed. Now, I am 61 pounds lighter. I love life, and am joyful every time I look in the mirror.
Angela Curtis

I wanted my daughter who has ADHD to be involved in a sport, but nothing seemed to hold her interest. I felt like I was failing her. David was different than other coaches, because he was able to teach Karate in a way that held her attention. David treated her with respect. She earned her brown belt, her grades have improved, and she’s able to focus on tasks better.

A New Standard For Martial Arts Training

Our training philosophy is student-oriented. It centers on imparting practical knowledge that prepares you for success. Instead of the traditional emphasis on information dissemination, Martial Bodies focuses on developing your abilities to apply the concept of self-defense to every aspect of your life – beyond an immediate physical threat. These aspects of your training are far more important than simply memorizing techniques and concepts, because they provide a set of practical and adaptable skills, together with an understanding of how to apply them in every area of your life. But, how can you implement this kind of training in your life? The answer is to apply for the program.

We have divided these competencies – martial skills, strength and conditioning, nutrition, and mindset – into an extensive set of teachable components, the learning objectives that underlie the Martial Bodies curriculum.
