I have been training with the Mid-Michigan Academy of Martial Arts for 20 years now. This program has done wonders for my life! I started out as the smallest kid in my 1st grade class with no self confidence. I was being picked on at school and wanted to learn how to defend myself. Like most children coming into a new activity, I was scared and apprehensive. Since the very first day of training I have been greeted with smiling faces and an uplifting, energetic atmosphere. This program has since built up my confidence, self esteem, discipline and focus. The instructors have taught me to be a more responsible person who focus on the good in other people and in the world around me. In addition, I am physically stronger, more flexible, and have more coordination than I had ever thought possible. I would whole heatedly recommend this martial arts school to anyone with an interest in self improvement and increased physical fitness.
