Strong Martial Arts

Learn self-defense, improve your fitness, lose weight, and boost your confidence - all in the first few weeks.

Welcome to Strong Martial Arts

Hi and welcome!

We’re so happy to share our passion for martial arts with you. While it may seem like our Strong Martial Arts school is just another place to get fit and learn self-defense... to us it’s way more than that. 

While you get into the absolute best shape of your life, some other “subtle” changes happen as well. These changes are mind blowing to our new students. When you train in our programs, your life will never be the same again...in a really good way!

Here are a handful of those life-changing benefits students experience…

#1 Soaring Confidence

It’s both exciting and challenging to learn new skills. But when you keep at it and persevere, you’ll progress and come out on top. You’ll realize you're a lot stronger and more capable than you ever thought possible!

Realizing this makes you more and more confident. You’ll feel more sure of yourself and your ability to handle every challenge that life throws your way – even those unexpected curve balls! Both kids and adults feel their confidence and courage soar much more easily than before!

#2 Laser Like Focus

Focus your mind grasshopper...as you listen intently and concentrate on what your instructor tells you and then perform what they taught you. With your improved ability to concentrate, there’s no doubt you will SMASH your martial arts and fitness goals.

What’s awesome is that this intense concentration pours into all other areas of your life too.

Studies have shown that just 30 minutes of physical fitness improves focus, heightens problem solving ability, and even boosts memory in both kids and adults.

#3 Your Best Fitness Ever

No matter what your starting fitness level is, each one of our students improves from where they were when they took their first class. From total beginner to elite athletes. We strive to make sure each class is loaded with challenging and fun exercises that work your entire body.

You’ll be so focused on performing the techniques that some of the world’s top performing martial artists do, and having so much FUN, that before you know it, the class is over, and you not only learned powerful martial arts...

... but you got a great workout, too! Being physically fit BOOSTS energy and mental clarity. It REDUCES stress and anxiety… and so much more.

#4 Community Connections

Get ready because your circle of influence is about to grow... big time! We're a tight-knit group here and everyone is all about support and friendship. As you struggle through tough training times, and smile through wins and victories, you’ll have your martial arts family right there to help and cheer you on. 

Friendship, encouragement, and high fives are part of every class. As you train together, you and your classmates will form an amazing bond. It's just an indescribable feeling.

#5 FUN Times & Great Memories!

Sometimes getting fit can be not so fun and downright boring. Not here though because we’re working out like super-star martial artists! Learning to use our entire body to protect ourselves and our families. In our action-packed classes, you’ll tighten up your core, gain lean muscle on your arms and legs, and have an absolute blast. 

No two workouts are ever the same and we DON'T use military style yelling or body shaming. After all, we want you to have a ton of fun here, and keep coming back. Plus, our instructors know they’ll get the best possible performance out of you when you’re in a good mood. That’s when we’re at our best too! 

Both kids and adults work hard… and play hard. Laughing, smiles and fist bumps are part of every class.

Kids Martial Arts

We mix a perfect blend of fun activities and games in all our kids martial art classes to keep kids' attention. But at the same time, we go beyond the traditional martial arts techniques to impart discipline and a deeper sense of respect to our students. As a result, kids become better-behaved everywhere they go and perform better in school. That's why parents are crazy about our classes too, not just their kids.

Kids of all ages love these martial art classes...they enjoy the fun activities and games while improving and learning new martial art techniques.

Self Defense

Master great tactics in self-protection and get in shape quickly with our Astoria self-defense program. No matter if you are a trained expert in martial arts or a complete beginner to combat in general who wishes to learn martial art techniques, our classes are suited for all ages, experience levels, and fitness levels too (you don't have to be in great shape to get started!)

We conduct the most efficient self-defense classes in Astoria. Each of our students love these classes because they are so much fun and stress-relieving too. Let us get you in shape and help you master self-defense while you punch and kick stress out of your life!
