As a home-school parent, I was always looking for extracurricular activities for the children. My search ended with Ancient Ways. After five years, the instructors feel like family and my boys see the studio as a home away from home. Not only does the school provide the physical activity and socialization my boys needed, it gives them a sense of community and belonging. In addition, the training the students receive is excellent and they are expected to apply the school's Code to their training, as well as to their lives outside the studio. Although Ancient Ways is not what one might consider a traditional martial arts school, we are proud to belong to the Ancient Ways family.

 I earned my black belt from here and it changed my life. I am a successful college graduate who used the skills and life lessons from this martial arts school to exceed in life and make a difference. The staff are the best people you could ever meet. It is always student first. Highly recommended for people who want to do something that will only change their life for the better.
