Can't say enough good things about John Johnston and IronClad Martial Arts Center and Power Up Kickboxing. If you're considering karate for your children, this is the place to go. He is firm, yet encouraging and he has a natural ability to instill pride and respect in his students. I've already seen positive changes in my children that extend way beyond the physical skills they are learning.

I started taking the power up kickboxing class shortly after they opened last year and I love it. I tend to take evening classes and when I started Kru John taught all of those classes and he was tuff but in a great way since myself and many others kept coming back for more. Nowadays Kru teaches just the morning kickboxing classes and has gotten an unbelievable team of instructors to teach his evening classes and when I say unbelievable I truly mean that because I was hesitant of the change or should I say not happy about it. In this past year I have personally met some of the greatest and supportive people. We completed The Rugged Maniac a 5k obstacle course this past September as a team (Ironclad Angels) and that team consisted of kickboxers, trainers and even a few of the martial art students. Ironclad is like a family and I would recommend anyone in any fitness level to stop in and try a couple classes because you will love it.

Are you dealing with

Any of these troubles?

Do you want to lose weight and tone your muscles?

Do you want to feel prepared to defend yourself if you need to?

Are you ready to feel new levels of self-confidence and pride?

Getting in shape is important for people of all ages and sizes

Try something different from the same old routine

Studying martial arts provides you with a physical challenge combined with a mental one – and teaches you to defend yourself, too.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a unique form of martial arts that teaches students to leverage their body weight to use in the ring or against an attacker. A descendant of Judo, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is both a sport and a martial art – and it’s fun to learn.

Results and growth with every class!

Studying Brazilian Jiu Jitsu can help you get in the best shape of your life. It’s a great way to lose weight, tone your muscles, and learn the key things you need to know to be able to defend yourself – even against an opponent who’s larger than you are.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Builds Muscle and Maximizes Physical Fitness

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu provides an intense, full-body workout that’s the perfect way to lose weight, increase your muscle mass, and get into great shape.

By combining cardiovascular training with toning and training, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu students push their bodies hard and learn what they are capable of.

It’s a great way to burn calories in a fun and supportive setting that encourages all students to do their best.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Teaches Practical Self-Defense Techniques

The thought of having to defend yourself against a bigger, stronger assailant might be scary, but Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is designed to help you overcome your fears.

By teaching students to take the fight to the ground where they can use chokeholds and other effective techniques to defend themselves, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu helps leverage even a small body into a huge problem for an attacker.

Best of all, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu builds strength and agility, both of which help in self-defense situations.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Students Walk with Confidence and Pride

There’s no feeling quite like the feeling of knowing that your body is strong, agile, and able to do whatever you want it to do.

Studying Brazilian Jiu Jitsu gives students the knowledge that they can leverage their body’s strength to accomplish things they never thought possible.

Over time, it increases self-confidence and pride – and that carries over to work, home, and every area of your personal life.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Competitions Provide a Unique Challenge

Students who have a natural competitive drive love Brazilian Jiu Jitsu because it’s a sport as well as a self-defense method.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu requires students to spar and fight in class. They can also choose to compete to prove their ability or to advance to new levels of achievement.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu competitions help students set goals and work toward them – and to relish the experience of victory.

The best place with amazing trainers who get you to do your best. I have found my second home.
