If you have kids, I highly recommend enrolling your kids in Ancient ways. The staff at Ancient ways are all great if youre struggling during your training. the Instructors will give you one on one time. With you each instructor has their own teaching style, which all leads up to the same Curriculum . The staff are also very nice and the DoJo is always clean . I also recommend Ancient ways because of How peaceful and positive . Meditation also helps a lot to take my mind off, of all the negatives things outside of training. Also the training is very fun, I have gained a lot of life lessons, that will stick with me . Also the code helps a lot because it teaching Respect, and Discipline etc... Overall I highly recommend Ancient ways . Thank you to Master Brown and Mrs. Tanja and the rest of the instructors, for helping me accomplish my goal .

Ancient Ways changed my life and the way I view myself and the rest of the world. Being a martial artist gave me confidence, humility, and patience (along with so much more) in a way that nothing else could have. I am forever grateful for the people I met and the experiences I gained there. Ancient Ways teaches that martial arts is a way of life, and that philosophy will stick with me forever.

You will not find a more personal satisfying experience in martial arts than Ancient Ways. Master Brown injects enthusiasm and confidence in students young and old. He programs a belief system into each student that forces them to trust in themselves and their current and future abilities. It positively affects every aspect of your life. My time with Master Brown is held in the same regards as going to college and starting a career as both benefitted from the philosophical teachings that came from his studio. It's not just weapons and kicking and punching... it's a life confidence tool.

Excellent teaching of Martial Arts. One of the most positive teaching schools I've ever seen. Master Brown's teaching technique is above and beyond. The respect and postivity he teaches shows thru his students from children to adults.
I am very thankful that I found this Martial Arts School. Trust me, I did my homework to find a school that would fit the needs of my son. Ancient Ways is definitely the right choice!

Ancient ways is a very enjoyable and fun place. You have fun as you learn. Now don't get me wrong class can be tough and exhausting at times. However, when you leave you feel energized, refreshed, and feel like a new person. Not only do you gain new skills but you also gain a family. Everyone there is very nice and supportive. For instance, I told Master Brown that I may not be able to sign up for another year since we're planning on purchasing a house. This is his response "Keep me in the loop and if you guys need help, I have an army of people happy to help you move, paint and whatever needs doing" Awesome place 100%

Someone asked me once, “If we could go back in time and we made an agreement that you would never train in martial arts of any kind for all of your life, in return for money, would you do it for a million dollars?” I couldn’t answer, “No way!” fast enough. By the way, this […]

Master Brown was asked about safety in an active shooter situation today. If the person with the gun wants something from you, give it to them, it’s not worth your life, no matter what it is. Alive is alive, dead is nothing. If however, their intent is to kill you, better to die trying to […]

I had a mom recently say, “We know you want dedicated students and we just don’t think he is dedicated, so we are not going to renew his program.” I had a dad last year tell me the same thing. I have to be honest with you; I really don’t care if your kid is […]

Why Humility is so Important as a Warrior The first real altercation I had after my many years of martial arts training, competitions and tournaments was a real surprise to me. At first, I thought the guy was just being funny. The guy took several hits at me before I realized he was really intent […]

What is your mission? We are warriors, knights, Braves and Samurai trapped in the modern world, and like the warriors of the past, we need quests, goals and a solid Mission. I first heard the word “mission statement” spoken about a big corporation I worked for. The purpose of their mission statement was to give […]

When my kids were just starting martial arts at ages 2 and 3 ish, it was all fun and games with dad. Then the training got serious and it was hard to learn from dear old dad, so I had them attend classes taught by our other instructors. Their names over the years have changed […]

Why my kids did sports in addition to Martial Arts You might think that my kids did martial arts because I teach it, and I wanted them to fall in love with martial arts like me. That would be wrong. You see, I didn’t always love martial arts. Let me explain. I went through some […]

We had students there doing demos and teaching impromptu workshops. While standing at the booth greeting people, a middle aged woman approached me. She smiled and asked, […]
