Committed to teaching and inspiring those that have chosen the martial arts as a path to positively transforming their lives.

Who we are

We strive to make the martial arts more accessible and visible in Salmon Arm, and provide programming that enables students of all ages and abilities to increase their levels of health and fitness. Students will also gain greater self confidence, discipline and respect by participating in training, working with others, and actively listening during instructor led Coaches Corners.
The studio is intent on creating an environment where all students feel welcomed and supported in their individual journeys.
