What Our Students Are Saying About Us

"I’ve been going to the gym for years and wasn’t making much progress getting more in shape, so I finally decided to try out Enter Martial Arts, which is in my neighborhood. I wasn’t really sure what to expect since I’ve never done martial arts before, but I wanted to change up my workout routine and find something more effective. I go to class twice a week, and I feel GREAT!! The classes are well-structured and Coach Nick does a great job explaining techniques and keeping exercises interesting. He’s also been certified as a personal trainer (best of both worlds), so he’s great at combining martial arts techniques with strength and flexibility exercises. Highly recommend!!"

"I have never enjoyed exercising. It just wasn’t very interesting to me. A friend of mine pushed me to train with her at Enter Martial Arts, and I’m glad she did. After a few weeks, I could touch my toes again and the movements are challenging but not impossible or overly intimidating. I never would have joined a martial arts school on my own but between the motivating compliments from everyone and Coach Nick’s cheesy jokes, the 1 hour session just flies by. Side note, bring a towel. You’re gonna sweat."

"My son has been training with Coach Nick for just about a month now and his confidence levels are soaring. He practices on his own at home because he’s rewarded for remembering the techniques that he was taught. I even heard a “yes ma’am” after I asked him to help me with the dishes. I tell all of my friends about Coach Nick’s classes."
                                                                                                                         ~ Ashley B. (parent)
"I've always been interested in learning martial arts and I joined Enter Martial Arts after seeing its amazing reviews on Yelp. Coach Nick is really passionate about teaching and the class setup is great - it's designed for everyone to learn techniques at their own pace and still reach their potential. Fyi, I used to get short of breath after walking up a few flights of stairs at work, and now I can actually walk up them without feeling like I just ran a mile! Other perks are the school is clean, classes aren't too crowded and there's plenty of parking."

"My kicks are getting stronger. I’ve become more flexible. In the 6 months I’ve trained at Enter Martial Arts, I’ve never been injured or felt like I was being pushed past my limits."
                                                                                                                                        ~ Daniel C.
"I really feel like the coaches at Enter Martial Arts understand my goals when training with them. I didn’t want to chase after belts. I have nothing to prove here. I just want a great workout and to know that the techniques that I’m learning are correct and getting stronger. I have never felt pressured to do new movements when I wasn’t confident to move forward. We also practice self defense techniques, including ones that the coaches tailor specifically to my strengths (and height haha). Thanks for helping me feel like a martial artist at my own pace."

At Enter Martial Arts, We Focus On

Traditional Kung Fu
Contemporary Wushu
We teach Taiwanese Tian Shan Pai Kung Fu. It was brought to the United States by Grand Master Willy Lin. This style incorporates many strikes and stances that are found in contemporary wushu but does not leave out the intricacies that allow it to be a formidable martial art.
Made famous by action stars Jet Li and Donnie Yen, wushu is a performance art made to appreciate the aesthetics and preserve the history of Chinese martial arts.
Black belt, Martial Arts, Kung fu, wushu, Weapons, staff, spear
Self Defense
Sport Kickboxing
Weapons
Chin Na Self defense is designed to use small joint manipulation to control an attacker. This style relies on technique and not on aggression or strength.
Learn the exciting sport of kickboxing. Strengthen your body and build stamina to compete against others. We also practice club sparring. This type of sparring is not competitive at all and allows students to hone the techniques they've learned in class in a safe and controlled environment.
There are MANY traditional weapons that were used historically in China. As you build a foundation, you will be introduced to a few. If you decide to specialize in weaponry, you can have the opportunity to become proficient in all of them.

Objectively Measurable Progress

The curriculum at Enter Martial Arts is designed to introduce students to the full range of martial arts, with 12 levels before black belt. This allows students to objectively measure and track their performance and look forward to attaining new goals. After black belt, students focus on specializing in certain areas and perfecting those techniques.
