Muay Thai Kickboxing and Self-Defense For The Whole Family!

Hi and welcome to Folsom Martial Arts Center,

There are various reasons why people search out martial arts. There isn't a one-size fits all approach to teaching it everyone either. Therefore, the reason you are looking into starting yourself or maybe a child into martial arts is important for me to know and understand. I want to know why you want to do Kickboxing, or why you want your child to be enrolled in a martial art program. 

For me personally, martial arts has been a personal journey. I struggled through school  because my focus and concentration was all over the place. I had a hard time concentrating on what someone was saying long enough to learn what they were teaching. In addition to this, I lacked confidence in myself. I wasn't sure I was able to do what I wanted. I just never had the confidence to prove it to myself. Plus, my lack of self-discipline wasn't exactly stellar. 

So, for me the reason "why" I wanted to do martial arts was to help me improve my confidence, focus, and discipline while getting self-defense skills that worked on the street. I wasn't interested in competing (even though, I did compete in competitions) or training for the sole purpose to become a world champion. Those things I just did along the way. I wanted to learn fighting skills that worked on the street against bigger, stronger thugs. 

Now 24 plus years later, my sole purpose is to help others become something great, to help them achieve their goals. 

With all that being said, it's no surprise that the most effective fighting skills you can learn come from Boxing, Muay Thai, Kickboxing, Savate, and Jeet Kune Do. These aren't the only ones, but for stand up striking they have proved themselves. This has been proven in the most grueling of testing grounds the UFC and other MMA events. It is also the best way to develop your self-defense skills.

We offer a variety of programs for children (ages 4-12), teens, and adults. Our programs is mainly a Muay Thai Kickboxing program with the addition of ground tactics and self-defense strategies for the street, or bully situation for children or teens. 

What You'll Gain In Our Program:

  • Confidence and self-esteem

  • Self-Control
  • Mental Calmness

For adults, our focus is to help you get a great work and get into better shape while developing street-focused self-defense skills that work. We teach you a strong foundation of skills so you can use these in any situation. What you can expect to gain in our program is:

  • Powerful and damaging striking skills
  • Explosiveness and quickness
  • Better agility, balance, and coordination
  • Self-defense skills that work
  • A workout that burns fat

  • More flexibility
  • Inner calmness and relaxation
  • Better stamina, strength, and endurance

No Uniforms, No Patterns To Learn - Just Simple, Direct Street Skills That Work!

In all the classes, no matter if it is for the kids, teens, or adults, there are no patterns to learn. The only uniform is for the kids class which is a pair of martial art shorts and a t-shirt. For teens and adults, there are NO uniforms. 

I take out the traditional patterns (or commonly called katas or forms) because they take away from teaching the skill set that is needed to develop your fighting abilities quickly. Doing it this way, you learn simple, direct, and effective skills that work in all situations because you are learning it from a tactical point of view rather than a technique point of reference. 

This doesn't mean that the character values of things like respect, honor, integrity, and commitment aren't learned. Matter of fact, because you don't have to spend time trying to memorize a pattern of movements your self-defense skill set grows quickly!

Best luck to you in your martial arts journey,
