The Martial Arts Center is rooted in the strong, and proven traditional martial arts values of self development. At the Martial Arts Center, our goal is to provide a safe, fun, and friendly environment where students can become highly skilled in traditional karate and self-defense. Our school serves students by not only teaching physical martial art skills, but also teaching self-esteem and life skills. We want our students to be champions in life! The focus of this program is to provide all the students with the highest quality martial arts instruction available, in a safe and positive learning environment that people of all ages can enjoy. The Martial Arts Center has a legacy of quality, traditional martial arts in Niagara, for almost 30 years. The school has taught thousands of students not only quality Goju-Ryu techniques, but also helped them to build confidence, discipline, and live better lives. At the Martial Arts Center, people come first.
Studying Karate is many things to different people. It is a sport, an art, a discipline, a recreational or social activity, a fitness program, a means of self-defense or combat, and a way of life. Karate is unique in that all age groups, genders, and most people with disabilities can participate together in learning and practicing the art. Karate is an inexpensive, year-round activity, which appeals to people from all walks of life. Our student body varies in age, background, and experience. No matter your background, you'll find yourself at home at the Martial Arts Center.
The Martial Arts Center is a place where people come first. While technique is important, and we have high standards for our students, what is most important to us is that your martial arts journey is a good one. This has won us the hearts of the people of Niagara. The Martial Arts Center has received many 'Reader's Choice' awards over the years. In our dojo, you will learn punches, kicks, and self-defense, but we also believe, as traditional training dictates, that you must train more than just your body, you also need to train your mind. Karate training will help you refine your self-confidence, self-discipline, and positive attitude.
