About Our Classes And Programs
Kids Martial Arts
Parents are thrilled with our Martial Arts program for kids! Because kids are building incredible life-skills through
their training, such as confidence, focus, respect and control. And they are having a TON of fun and getting the
excercise they desperately need.
Martial Arts builds character in kids! And their parents notice the difference in the first few weeks.
Adult Martial Arts
The moment you walk in the school, you will see that our techniques do not look like other schools. The students use
the momentum of the attacker against them, in a variety of throws, pins, locks, and holds.
All the students here help each other out. Every class is filled with smiles and laughter. Before you know it, you
will feel calmer, happier, more focused, and in the best shape of your life!

Lincoln is the capital and the second-most populous city of the State of Nebraska, after Omaha. Lincoln is also the county
seat of Lancaster County and the home of the University of Nebraska. Lincoln's population in 2013 was estimated at
Lincoln was founded in 1856 as the village of Lancaster, and became the county seat of the newly created Lancaster
County in 1859. The capital of Nebraska Territory had been Omaha since the creation of the territory in 1854; however,
most of the territory's population lived south of the Platte River. After much of the territory south of the Platte
considered annexation to Kansas, the legislature voted to move the capital south of the river and as far west as possible.
The village of Lancaster was chosen, in part due to the salt flats and marshes.
Omaha interests attempted to derail the move by having Lancaster renamed after the recently assassinated President
Abraham Lincoln. Many of the people south of the river had been sympathetic to the Confederate cause in the recently
concluded Civil War, and it was assumed that the legislature would not pass the measure if the future capital were
named after Abraham Lincoln. The choice to name the capital city "Lincoln" caused quite a stir among the constituents, whose sentiments were mixed regarding who should have won the Civil War.
Lincoln topped the CDC list of healthiest U.S. cities in 2008, and in 2013, was #1 on the Gallup-Healthways list of "Happiest & Healthiest" cities.
