A great place for people of all ages. Caring instructors who encourage you to grow as both a martial artist and as a person. A place to get fit, learn self defense, meet a bunch of standup people and have a lot of fun!

FIVE STARS :)
My son grew up in this gym and still there. Myself could not resist and joined EMA few years ago. Very good ethics, no judgment environment; at any age you will feel a support there. High quality program, professional approach to exercises helps to reach your individual best level.

The Ultimate New Years Resolution

The New Year is here, and with thousands of goals and resolutions in sight as well, 2017 is the year you should try something new!
Martial arts is an established system that can better the entirety of your being.
Whether you need mental benefits like furthering your discipline muscle, physical benefits like getting in shape, or maybe you’re just looking to make some new friends; martial arts is for you.
3 Martial Arts Benefits Physical
The most common New Year’s resolution you will hear is to get in better shape. The physical benefits from martial arts are obvious.
Martial arts will get you in shape in a way you find fun. Your body gets more comfortable with itself, so you have better control over your physical abilities as well.
Needless to say, arming yourself with the self defense tactics from martial arts makes you better equipped to deal with some of the more dangerous physical obstacles in life.
Really, martial arts is more than just physical improvement.
Mental
Looking for more discipline, focus, and awareness?
There are several martial arts benefits, but the greatest is the mental toughness.
Martial arts helps connect your mind with your brain. It helps your mind gain the necessary control it needs to do this. It helps you find comfort in stressful situations. Maybe you want to be more adventurous, less scared of the world, or more adjusted to your own body?
It’s more than just kicking and punching. The spiritual benefits are plenty. There has always been a strong connection between the zen world and martial arts. This mental improvement can help you deal with your anxiety, your depression, and any other negative mental stressor that is plaguing your day to day.
Social
The social benefits of martial arts are often overlooked.
Maybe you’ve gotten in with the wrong crowd, and have decided that you need to add fresh faces to your life. Maybe you just need some new friends.
The martial arts community is one of the friendliest, most supportive, and inspiring groups of people you will ever find. It’s a great place to make lifelong friends and relationships.
You will find that the martial arts world is fascinating on it’s own, and that you could spend a whole lifetime indulging in some of its pleasantries.
You will get addicted to the lifestyle and your new friends will be able to empathize. —
Why just pick one New Year’s resolution this year when you can be apart of something that covers so much more than just one improvement?
This new year, you could be smarter, healthier, calmer, and happier.
