The 5 Ways We Change Lives,
For Both Kids & Adults.

Hi and welcome!

Have you been wanting to take control of your life for a while now but have been unsure how to do that? Perhaps you're looking for a new outlet for your kids to work off some of that extra energy while learning and growing.

Our Canandaigua Martial Arts school can certainly help you with those things. 

At first glance, most people think Martial Arts is a way to get fit and learn self-defense...which is true...but...

Martial arts is so much more than just kicks and punches! Our students are amazed at how Martial Arts truly enriches their lives in ways most people are not prepared for. Really.

These life-changing benefits are more "subtle" than the physical benefits you see from our classes. While we can see lean muscle forming, and feel the effects of cardio training within the first week, the benefits below are felt on a deeply personal level and with some phenomenal side effects.

Read below to see how amazing your life is about to get from taking a chance on yourself and leaping feet first into the action-packed world of Martial Arts. We can't wait to see how your life changes from our classes too!

Get ready for...

Increased Confidence

Challenge yourself and change your life! As you dive in to martial arts and put your efforts into learning all the crazy cool striking drills, self-defense techniques, and getting the most out of cardio training, you’ll quickly realize you CAN shatter your fitness goals.

Wow, what a big boost in confidence that brings! We see it on all the new students' faces within just a couple of weeks. Believe it or not, but a lot of it comes from the encouraging class atmosphere and positive socialization that goes on here. 

You’ll smile and feel good as your classmates and instructors cheer you on. High fives will fly high as you progress through training and continue to give your all in class. Both kids and adults feel this and it spills over into their everyday life, as well. Kids step up to the plate and become role models in school. Even adults say that they take on bigger challenges at work with more confidence.

Better Focus

Taekwondo is so much fun! You’ll learn all sorts of new skills and techniques like striking drills, defensive moves, and even super-secret functional cardio drills. But...when you learn a new skill you have to concentrate hard on listening to the instructor, then performing what they taught you.

The neat thing is this intense concentration naturally pours into all other areas of your life as you develop laser like focus. It’s one of the most amazing side-effects of karate or taekwondo - many call it getting in the zone, unlocking your untapped potential, or peak performance.

Whatever you want to call it, one thing is for certain - you’ll learn how to focus your mind to perform tasks you once thought impossible.

Totally Fit and Toned

Each class is jam-packed with fun and challenging exercises. But because you're so focused on practicing the moves, and having so much fun, you hardly notice it. Before you know it, the class is over, and not only did you learn powerful martial arts, you just got a great workout, too! 

Being physically fit also increases energy, confidence and how you feel about yourself.


We're a tight-knit group here. And our members and instructors are all about support and friendship. Kids and adults both make friends with the other members, and as a result, our community thrives.

We provide the kind of environment that fosters friendship, encouragement, and motivation. It's truly great to experience.

You'll Have FUN!

You’ll have an absolute blast in class! Sure, sometimes things will be tough and training can get intense. But we like to break up the intense focus and concentration with lots of laughs, encouragement, and light-hearted humor.

Laughing and smiles are part of every class!

Our Objective is to not only teach you self-defense, but to help you in all aspects of your life. Our classes build focus, inner and outer strength, and determination in people of all ages.


We teach traditional martial arts, but with a modern "twist." Our focus is on overall wellness, defensive training, personal development skills, and life philosophy – all of which help to ensure that you reach your full potential and enjoy the greatest possible success in life.


KWC Martial Arts is committed to providing you with the highest quality training available in a safe and positive learning environment. We strive to make it interesting, fun and educational for the whole family!


We value family and that’s the kind of energy you’ll see and feel here. The instructors and students are all super friendly and supportive so you don’t have to worry about whether or not you’ll fit in. We already know you will… even if you’re a total beginner.


In fact, we welcome beginners with open arms. We were all once in your shoes and understand if you might be a bit nervous about taking your first class. That’s normal and taking that first step is probably the hardest.


But you have to start with that first step to find out just how AMAZING it is and how much it will change your life for the better! No matter what your current fitness level is, we can help you reach your goals and unleash your full potential at your pace.


That’s why we have such a wide variety of classes. While your kids are learning some really cool techniques in martial arts, mom can de-stress in a Tai Chi class or learn self-defense with Taekwondo and dad can shed some weight and get fit in a Progressive Combat class. Your goals are our goals and no matter what, we're here to support you every step of the way.


We strive to make sure that our school is second to none so that you get the most out of EVERY class no matter what age you are as you…


When you learn the forms of martial arts we teach and apply the philosophy to your life, you’ll learn how to become more mentally and physically strong and disciplined. Martial arts is all about self-control – both on and off the mat. Having those good qualities at a young age will prepare your child for real life challenges. 


We don't teach your kids how to fight; we teach them how to defend themselves in a safe, positive and healthy way. They will learn how to stand-up for themselves, become bully-proof and CONFIDENT in any situation, good or bad.


Same thing for ADULTS. You’ll gain tremendous courage and confidence and won’t hesitate for a moment to protect yourself and family, if necessary. That sense of empowerment will carry over into other parts of your life too, as you expand your horizons in ways you only dreamt of before.

Have you checked out the crazy low WEB SPECIAL going on right now? It’s a steal of a deal. Classes fill up fast because it’s such a great deal so reserve your spot today!

So…are you ready to join our FUN and INSPIRING martial arts family? Let’s do this together and make your fitness goals and dreams come true – one awesome kick, punch and black belt at a time.
