Savior Martial Arts® strengthens students with training and discipling in an innovative and exciting environment. All of our fully Christian martial arts systems provide sound Biblical foundations for living a peaceful, non-aggressive life. Students train under fully certified Black Belt instructors who motivate students to grow in their spiritually, mentally, while developing impressive physical fitness and skill. For centuries the martial arts have provided a framework upon which individuals develop strong bodies, alert minds, and spiritual discipline. Our academy incorporates these principles while consistently upholding the moral and ethical standards contained within the Scriptures. Our leadership development training specifically equips participants with confidence and skills to become Kingdom builders and world changers.
Savior Martial Arts® has a markedly unique Christian martial arts program. In keeping with our Christian worldview curriculum, even our understanding of the historical foundations of the martial arts is based on scholarship and research. The martial arts faded from prominence during the first millennium after Christ, while vestiges remained in Europe, the Middle East, and the Orient. The arts, as we currently know them, trace their roots to the Orient. However, a proper understanding of the code of conduct embodied in the martial virtues (in Japanese, called Bushido) is directly traceable to Biblical principles found in Old Testament Israel.
In all Savior Martial Arts® programs, students learn true martial arts as they were originally intended. They not only learn self-defense and mental discipline, but also grow in spirit during their training. Students will not encounter any Eastern mysticism, violent tendencies, or self-glorification (elements common to many secular martial arts schools) in this system. Instead, we disciple them to grow in positive ways.
Savior Martial Arts® also offers unique training opportunities to learn the mental side of the martial arts. As a part of their training, students learn how to avoid or de-escalate a difficult situation using their minds instead of their fists.
