Training at USTA Martial Arts 
USTA Martial Artsis about physical fitness, character development (self-esteem, self-confidence, focus and concentration, self discipline) and self defense - not just kicking and punching.

People often think that martial arts is about fighting but that's not what we emphasize at USTA Martial Arts. Instead, we focus on the personal development aspects of martial arts because that's why most people participate.
 
Almost half of the 6 million participants in martial arts are children ages 4-17, according to statistics from the Sporting Goods Manufacturers Association.
 
And it's not unusual for the whole family to get involved; one-third of the students are woman, many of them "moms".
​Universal benefits of martial arts:
No matter what discipline of martial arts you choose, whether it is karate, kung fu, taekwondo, jujitsu, judo, aikido, tai-chi, kendo or another one of the many forms of martial arts, the styles may differ but the benefits should remain the same.
 
Improved physical fitness: Make no mistake: Martial arts is a great workout! It is a total body workout your stamina, muscle tone, flexibility, balance and strength will all show signs of improvement. 
 
Enhanced self esteem: By learning these skills and improving your physical condition, you become more comfortable in all situations - whether you're in danger or simply doing a task that takes you beyond your comfort zone. Kids have a new sense of self-confidence, making them virtually "bully proof."
 
Increased focus and concentration: From the very first day of class, students are challenged to think as much as they act. Learning the forms and movements reinforces working memory. That's why the Mayo Clinic specifically counts the martial arts such as taekwondo among the effective therapies for ADD and ADHD.
 
Increased social skills: Martial arts strongly emphasize self discipline and self control as a core component of its teachings. Self leadership and the ability to deal with others in a mature way is the result.
 
Stress relief: Kicking, punching and Ki-hap(yelling) are a great release, no matter what your age. 
 
Respect for values: Honesty, courtesy, integrity, perseverance and excellence are some curriculum areas of focus. These qualities help both children and adults become great leaders.
